I’m a firm believer of the concept “the best gun is the one that you have on you”. People can argue until they’re blue in the face about what the best caliber is, but if you don’t have that 454 Casull wheel gun on you then it really doesn’t matter how great the ballistics are. The same thing holds true for the guns in your home. You may have the best home defense weapon setup ever made but if it takes you 20 minutes to get into your safe then does it really matter?
The answer to the question above is NO and I’m pretty sure the folks over at Barska understand this concept wholeheartedly. I say that because they make some of the fastest opening safes on the market. How fast you say? Well thanks to their biometric scanning opening mechanisms, you’re only seconds away from getting to your weapons.
Call me crazy but I also think the hardest safe for a thief to break into is the one he never finds. That’s where this Biometric Wall Safe from Barska truly excels at. It is the perfect size to fit a nice collection of pistols, including the hand cannon …
I know from experience that having a light on your weapon is a complete and total game changer in no light or low light conditions. I’ve been lucky enough to never have fired at anyone but close calls have reinforced my strong preference for a weapon light. With all things considered: budget, size, weight and quality, the only clear choice for me was a Streamlight TLR series light. If you’ve read my other posts, then you know I’m a fan of having options and adding a green laser sight to an already amazing weapon light is about as good as it gets.
The Streamlight TLR-4G in all fairness is a Streamlight TLR-3 with a ultra bright green laser sight slapped on the bottom. What is nice about this is that you have the same easy to operate light and nearly bulletproof housing but you also get the added advantage of a laser. The addition of the laser only adds a slight bulge under the light and mere grams to the already lightweight package.
