I love when people re-purpose items rather than just throwing them in the garbage. Tom Schaefer did exactly that with an old computer hard drive, by removing the magnet and screwing it into the wall for quick access to his handgun:

Tom’s blog – HERE

If I was planning on removing the gun on a regular basis i’d definitely put a piece of plastic ( cut out of a milk jug? ) or something over top of the magnet before I screwed it down, so it wouldn’t scratch the gun.

There are a couple of commercial options available when it comes to gun magnets:

But I’d still make my own, considering FREE beats $20 – $30 any day.

In the gun community there seems to be opposing viewpoints on whether or not the gun will become magnetized and possibly induce failure. I have no personal experience on the topic, but I don’t think it would be out of the realm of possibility for some parts to become magnetized and collect bits of lead and other metallic dust we are used to cleaning out of our dirty pistols.  The idea of that doesn’t really thrill me, but I’d have to try it out for myself to see if it actually is an issue.

Found in the book on Amazon – 101 Weapons For Women

Not that surprising considering the book was published in 1992. I’m sure there a lot of other good advice in that book that hasn’t been rendered obsolete.

As a 2010 office tip for women regarding self defense and removable storage media, i’d have to recommend going with breaking a CD or DVD in half and wrapping it up in some cloth or paper so you don’t cut yourself. Those things are RAZOR sharp when broken.

I haven’t seen a 5 1/4 in. or 3 1/2 in. disk since the last flea market I went to.  I don’t think I’ve seen a box from “card files” anywhere in the last couple decades.

Someone needs to port this over to a touchscreen device like the iPad and let this cat at it. That would be pretty entertaining.

Thankfully this particular cat is de-clawed, paw prints on the screen have got to be annoying though.

You just can’t beat slow motion video of shooting and blowing stuff up.
