Home Defense – Optics, Lasers and Lights…

Most well-rounded home defense plans take every possible scenario into consideration, and include options to mitigate any potential crisis before or while it occurs. Modern technology enables the deployment of sophisticated home security systems, including intrusion detection, video surveillance and remote operation. If nefarious activity can be detected early in the process, it is likely further escalation can be averted. Investigation and criminal prosecution can also be enhanced by facilitating better identification of criminals and their actions.

The Second Amendment

"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed..." - Thomas Jefferson

Guns – Why Pay Full Price?

Firearms are generally not inexpensive. They are an investment in personal security, any number of shooting sports, and your 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. Depending on the firearm, they can range from several hundreds to several thousands of dollars. If well taken care of, they hold their value and last a lifetime or more, as evident from specimens that may have been around during World War I and still function flawlessly today.

Vintage and Replica Firearms

Imagine owning an original MP 40 (Maschinenpistole 40) - a submachine gun developed in Germany and used extensively by the Axis powers during the Second World War. Well, not many people can, unless you have $10,000 or more to spend on one, not to mention that even finding one can be next to impossible! Or perhaps a US M1 Garand, which was the standard service rifle of the American Infantry during the same world conflict. Although not as rare as the venerable MP40, finding one in pristine condition will also set you back a bit financially. To round out a trio of iconic firearms, the Russian Mosin-Nagant was a bolt-action rifle developed from 1882 to 1891 that saw service by the armed forces of the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union and various other nations. Fortunately for collectors, hobby shooters and history buffs, the Mosin-Nagant can still be acquired in the surplus markets with relative ease and without a second mortgage.
