The Door Brace - An Interior Door Stop Alarm....

This is a great product, especially for interior doors that are hard to keep locked.

Remember, it only takes a single incident for yoru life to be turned upside down.

This is an interesting defensive product that sounds a piercing 125 db alarm hould an intruder attempt to enter that braced door. Moreover, with its wedge-like design, the unit will wedge underneath the door and its non-skid pad on the bottom will hold the door tighter the harder it is pushed.

Not a bad product and very reasonable at undr $15 per unit.

A GREAT and VERY ACCESSIBLE Book on Basic Self Defense....

John Townsend's Self-Defense for Peaceable People: Defend Yourself Regardless of Size, Gender, Age, or Strength is a great book on basic self-defense techniques.

John Townsend relies on a 20+ year in law enforcement to deliver a method that requires no training or experience at all, and is especially suited to those who simply want a realistic command of basic self-defense. Mr. Townsend explains clearly and succinctly the philosophy and theory behind self-defense, and describes the various types of attacks that can happen in different situations. Realistic photo sequences illustrate in detail the evasion and counterattack techniques that enable readers to defend themselves effectively in any real-world situation, regardless of size, gender, age, or strength. Armed only with these simple techniques, readers gain a new sense of freedom, personal confidence, and peace of mind.

A GREAT book at a very affordable price ($15.25 on Amazon)

TEXAS MONTHLY Talks With Ted Nugent

THIS is a GREAT interview with a great American,Ted Nugent, a man who truly understands that America's Constitution is rooted in private property rights and that without the ability to own property, you are likely to wind up as property. Here Nugent passionately defends the inviolate and natural right of ALL free people (thus ALL Americans) to violent self-defense. THANKS Ted!

Thinking DEFENSE....

When an intruder or a group of home-invaders enter your home, it's too late to think of home defense then.

The time to think of home and personal defense is NOW.

A good first line of defense is a good electronic home security system. Make sure you get every entry point, including all cellar windows covered. Consider adding some basic audio-video surveillance equipment to the mix. Yes, you do have to be able to "afford this," BUT the cost is generally pretty reasonable and it's well worth the cost....especially in an emergency.

Good interior doors and decent interior locks are also good things to have, but fewer and fewer homes have those now-a-days. Most interior doors are cheap flush luan doors and the locking mechanisms are pathetic. Even a ten y/o can get through most interior door locks.

I have some ideas for improving interior defense, but I'll get to that later on in this blog.

Finally, we come down to that FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE - YOU.

YOU must be willing to defend yourself, your property and your family at all costs and with all the energy and passion you can muster....your life and thiers may well depend on that.

IF you can stall for time, or talk your way out of a violent confrontation, by all means DO THAT, but often that won't be an option.

In that case, you MUST be ready and willing to engage in violence.

Often a violent response by a would-be victim gives the would-be victim the "element of surprise," which can often be enough.

For ANYONE being attacked, the first thing to think of is KEY SPOTS or "target areas" - think EYES, THROAT, NADS and FEET. Go for an assailants eyes, throat, gonads or balls and finally feet. Especially women wearing a heeled shoe, stomping down hard on the foot of someone who grabs you can often be enough to persuade that assailant to back off and choose another target. The second thing to think of is WEAPONRY. Fortunately, virtually ANYTHING can be turned into a weapon, if one chooses to use it that way. What you have to remember is that it's vital for YOU to fight back as though your life depended on it...because most of the time, IT DOES

The PEN is often mightier than the SWORD

One readilly available tool that is almost ubiquitously available and can be used as a weapon is the simple ballpoint pen. Slamming a simple ballpoint pen into an assailants eyes, throat or torso can often deliver MAXIMUM damage with a MINIMUM amount of time and effort.

YOU need to want to deliver as much damage as efficiently as possible because that's exactly what your attacker is intent on doing.

As the great Ted Nugent says, "I'd rather see dead offenders, rather than repeat offenders." You should too.

Violent Self Defense - There's NO Other Kind....

If you've taken on the responsibilities of property ownership or have forged a family, YOU are the FIRST LINE of defense, whether you know it or not.

YOU not only have an INNATE and NATURAL "RIGHT" to self defense, YOU have a duty to protect what is yours. If another person wants to take control/owenrship of your property against your will, there is only one way for you to respond - with violence.

The other person has already thought their position out, you have no time to think yourss out.

YOU have to get them before they, as they say, get you.

Self defense is both an art and a science.

At its simplesst, self defense comes down to inflicting the MOST DAMAGE to your assailant in the MINIMAL amount of time and with the MINIMAL amount of effort.

This blog is dedicated to helping people defend themselves and what's theirs.
