M.D. Creekmore at The Survivalist Blog – a survival blog dedicated to helping others prepare for and survive disaster – with articles on bug out bag contents, survival knife choices and a wealth of other survival information is giving away a 1,000 round case of 9mm – 124 Grain FMJ (a $200 value – donated by LuckyGunner)! To enter, you just have to post about it on your blog. This is my entry. Visit The Survivalist Blog for the details.


Fobus Paddle Magazine Pouch Holster for the Springfield XDM 9mm fits nice and tight on my side. The original magazine pouch holster canted the magazines outward and printed through my shirts more than my handgun did.

I needed a paddle magazine holster because I take it on and off throughout the day. It is super easy to put on. I insert it in the front then slide to to my weak arm side. The rubber will stick on your shirt and move it out of place.

I keep the magazines holster a bit further back so when I have my shirt on I can access my phone and I don’t have to expose the magazines.

The Fobus Paddle Magazine Pouch works for both the Springfield XD(m) 9mm and 40 caliber double stack magazines.


A video showing our Chamberlain Wireless Pedestrian & Vehicle Alert System with 2-Way Voice Communication and Remote Control.

This is a wireless intercom system that is pretty hard to find where you can use the intercom in 2-way.

We have it on the front and back of the house and it makes different chime sounds for each.

We are thinking about adding two more for a total of four.


A new video of our Medeco Double Cylinder Medeco High Security Patriot Maxum Deadbolt and handles.

They use to claim that these locks cannot be bumped or picked but hackers have been able to do it recently.

You get a custom key that only one locksmith can make. The blank keys are only given to certified locksmiths.

So it seems that all locks can be opened. Here is how I rationalize this. If a run-of-the-mill bad guy walks up to my house and sees the sticker above the locks that says “Medeco High Security Locks”, alarm stickers on the windows, motion sensors and a large barking German Shepherd. I think he/she might move on to my neighbor that doesn’t even have a deadbolt on their front door or leave doors and windows unlocked. They would have to have good intelligence on very high valued goods in our house to make the risk/reward formula work out in their favor.

Extended the door hinges screws into the 2×6’s for extra strength.

We have smash proof film on the window next to the door so someone cannot bust the glass and let themselves in.

The striker plates have been updated with long screws and extra length to distribute the force of a kick.

It has the removable key and place it away from the windows.
