What’s luck gotta do, gotta do with it?

“I know what you’re thinking, ‘Did he fire six shots or only five?’ But to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I’ve kinda lost track myself. But being this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one [...]

I’ll bet you 5 bucks on the pizza guy…

A quote from Jeff Marder states “We live in an age when pizza gets to your home before the police do.”
I’m not sure if I totally believe this, but some pizza delivery is really fast. Sometimes it’s like a guy is driving around with hot cheese pizzas in his car and a side bar of [...]

Conscience and Consequences of Self-Defense

It has been reported that the rate of justifable homicides has been rising in the past couple years to the highest levels in over a decade.
A justifable homicide is when a private citizen kills another person in self-defense while the person is committing a felony or when a police officer kills a suspect in the [...]

How safe is your bike?

Rule of thumb, if you want to decrease your chances of someone stealing your bike, lock it up. But realistically, if someone really wants to go to the trouble, they can easily clip the chain and be on their way. I have even seen people lock the front tire of the bike and then have [...]

Friday the 13th not as unlucky as you thought?

Dutch statisticians, who apparently have had some free time on their hands, have determined that Friday the 13th is actually safer than your average run-of-the-mill Friday.
The Dutch Centre for Insurance Statistics (CVS) has recently concluded that accidents and crime actually occurs less on this widely regarded “unlucky” day. “I find it hard to believe that [...]

What is worse than the gas prices? Getting beat up too.

It is getting uglier at the gas pumps in Cypress, CA where gas is already averaging around $4.50 per gallon. Now consumers have to deal with Road rage, well at least Fuel Rage, as violence broke out at the gas pumps at the Costco warehouse store in Orange County California. A doctor from La Palma [...]

Self-Defense is a Personal Choice

I was going through some old notes and found this little
nugget from awhile back, not sure why it didn’t get posted
back in last August (2007), but since it was a pretty good
article, I’ll post it now.
Self-Defense is a Personal Choice, you can choose to take
action, or choose stand by and allow things to happen.
“Three cheers [...]

Random Acts of Violence

It really amazes me sometimes when I hear how oblivious some people are to the possible threat of crime. I’m not talking about full fledged paranoia all the time, but some people take the “It won’t happen to me” syndrome to the opposite extreme. There are even self-proclaimed self-defense experts that will lead you to [...]

Whatever Time The Light Goes On Is Okay

Over the past couple years a good number of people, mostly women have taken issue with my business, which is selling personal protection products. I have never once advocated starting a fight, or using any products to go after anyone in an offensive way. I have always talked about using the products defensively for self-defense [...]

The Thrill of it All

A 15-year-old gets busted in Bremerton, WA for stealing
candy bars. The kid is riding his bike away from the
store when a cop responding to the shoplifting report
stops him. “You been stealing candy, son?”
“Nope, Not me!” responds the boy, chocolate in his teeth
and the smell chocolate on his breath. Kinda caught brown
handed. Besides the incriminating chocolate [...]

More Misguided Weapon Control

In an attempt to beef up security in China before the
Beijing Olympics, Chinese citizens must now register their
identities when they buy potentially dangerous knives.
Knives being targeted include daggers with blood grooves,
lock-knives, and knives with blades measuring over about
8 1/2 inches.
So basically it is the same old story. All law abiding citizens
will follow the laws [...]

Different World Today

The world is a different place these days. I’m not positive when
it happened, but if you look at the following passage you will
remember doing it, and wonder how it all became so unheard of
in today’s world. Is it the media to blame? Society? Satanic
influences? You decide.
Here is your stroll down memory lane (if you are [...]

Machete Attack Leaves Two Hospitalized

Whenever I hear the word machete, the first thing that
pops into my head is teenagers running through the woods
near Crystal Lake as Jason hacks and slashes victims in a
“Friday the 13th” movie.
Apparently on “Monday the 4th” (Feb 2008), a much less
catchy day and date, a man in Springfield (DOH!),
Massachusetts was accused of slashing a 42-year-old [...]

View on Women’s Self Defense Classes

I found a couple real good posts on a Self Defense Forum
that were far Worth sharing.
First one comes from a poster named Kharnivore:
“I worry more about the false-sense of security that any
short seminar can give to a casual attendee. I think that no
matter what the material, how good the trainer, without a
refresher course regularly people [...]
