Live Blogging a Volcano
(Play 'Jaws' music now)
New Member of the Family
In December I did something I never thought I would ever do. I exercised my 2nd Amendment rights and purchased a 'Household Protection Device'. Her name is Helga. She's German, and she's as accurate as she is sexy.
Growing up in California, hand guns and any types of weapons were always frowned upon. I never imagined I'd ever want or need to buy one, but after three deployments in countries where societies had broken down, evil in its worst form had taken over, and the only way people could protect themselves and their families was to own a weapon. I can't imagine life ever getting that bad here in the US, but the idea of not being able to protect my family against the most simple threats haunted me for a long time.
Of course, the top priority was to make sure I got the safest weapon I could find, and the easiest to use for my wife. More important was the need to keep it away from the kids. This little device is the greatest thing invented since sliced bread.
Once I was able to find exactly what I was looking for in terms of safety and security, I took the plunge. It was well worth the wait and the cost, and I'd recommend this model to anyone.
Thanks definitely go to my friend Tumbleweed and my brother in law 'Bam Bam' who gave a 2nd Amendment Virgin some excellent advice, and along the way helped me figure out the right way to go about this.
