self defense

Rob Pincus lays out his thoughts on home defense:

Here are Rob Pincus’ 5 Fundamentals Of Home Defense:

  1. Run like a lil’ bitch and let the bad guy have the things you worked hard for
  2. Hide like a lil’ bitch inside your own home
  3. Your hiding spot should have weapons
  4. Call the cops and warn the bad guy you’re prepared to shoot him
  5. Respond to the bad guy as appropriate

Rob-PincusI made #1 and #2 look stupid the way I worded them, but in reality pretty much everything that the bad guy is going to want to steal can be replaced by your insurance, and hiding while being ready rather than automatically getting into a confrontation is probably a good idea.  #4 though… WARN HIM?!  Uh… why?  I don’t think someone who wants to take your stuff and possibly your life grants that kind of courtesy.  Can you imagine if the police started warning people hahah “Sir!  Sir.. put that gun away and quit stealing this guy’s stuff and leave his house or I’ll shoot you.  Yes you can run away.  Please don’t come back and do anything in retaliation.  Just know you got lucky, and be thankful for that.” *eye roll*

In my opinion at the very least I wish every criminal would have to live their lives expecting to die every time they try and pull some illegal move.  Want to burglarize a house? Want to steal a car?  Well, that’s a personal choice but as long as you’re OK dying tonight because there is a good chance that’s going to happen.

Thanks to everyone who participated!  More giveaways coming soon.

5 copies of this great book up for grabs:

Self-Defense-Laws-Of-All-50-States

If you carry a weapon for self-defense, it’s definitely in your best interest to know the laws.  A simple purchase such as this book could keep your ass out of jail and save you a whole lot of money someday.

Attorney Mitch Vilos and Evan Vilos teamed up and went to great efforts to make sure that this comprehensive book is both clear and reliable.   The fact it’s written in plain easy to understand english (not loaded with fancy legal jargon), and even contains light humor here and there make it way more enjoyable than you would expect a book on law to be.

Make sure and enter the giveaway below, but know that you can also head over to the Firearms Law website and pick one up for $29.95 at any time.  A book such as this would make a great gift!

How To Enter (U.S. Residents Only):

  1. In the comments below I want to know what state you live in.
  2. What you like or dislike about your state when it comes to shooting / firearms.

I am also simultaneously giving away 5 more copies of the book on Instagram where all you have to do is follow me and “like” the picture.  Yea I know not all you are hipsters and have Instagram but you should get it for this reason alone.

Thanks everyone, and good luck!  The draw for these 10 books will be made on Friday night, and results posted on the weekend.

Because 7 or 10 rounds isn’t enough sometime:

Was the video actually trolling, demonstrating that 9mm doesn’t have effective stopping power? *shots fired*

Jokes aside, the video did a fine job of illustrating the point… I felt it could have been 30 seconds long rather than 2 minutes though.  People that are against regular capacity magazines and for gun control need to start seeing this type of commercial on TV thrown into rotation with the regular commercials they are used to seeing… then it might cause some change.

gang-starr-full-clipI applaud the effort of the “production company” that made this.  I see they are trying to raise $1,000,000 dollars on indiegogo for a TV series, LOL’d good luck with that.  I suppose stranger things have happened.  Contribute if you’re interested, because it’s off to a real slow start.

Ban assault knives!  Ban assault Asian dudes!  Ban bandana and track pant wearing assault thugs!

So what’s the lesson here?  Police either should draw their guns during routine interaction with a person, or else maintain a huge distance between them and the person to avoid getting potentially stabbed?  Better issue every police officer bull horns so they can yell at people from a distance with their gun ready. Maybe even just to be safe the police officer could get a remote controlled robot to deliver a cellphone to the person they want to talk to, while they sit 200+ yards away with the guy lined up in the crosshairs of a precision rifle.

Aaargo Jay explores the topic in song.  haha just kidding, he doesn’t sing but he does talk:

When someone asks me what gun they should buy, before they even finish their sentence I yell “GLOCK!”, then they are like “But what if th…” me: “GLOCK! I don’t have time for this shit.”

Aaargo-Jay-YouTubeIn all seriousness Aaargo Jay’s advice is better than mine; you really should try out a bunch and see what works best for you before you buy.  The advice seems obvious, but It’s surprising how many people discover guns years later that they like better because they didn’t look around enough at the beginning.  Even continuing to try new guns that come out doesn’t hurt.

You can grab the Run Guns t-shirt Jay is wearing over at ENDO Apparel. It’s also available in black.
