- Keep the hi lift jack on the bumper.
- Keep the winch in the receiver.
- Use one thru brake disc on motorcycle.
- Use another on the shed lock out back.
- I actually use one on my gun that goes back and forth to the range.
Ever been hit in the head with a gun lock?
Actually I think it's just the opposite. The locked gate contributes to family safety. Of course, I have a one year old with only goal in life at this moment, trying to crawl through the doggie door out back before I can catch her. My perspective may be skewed...
Do They Work?
I didn't notice anything in the story about the striking decline in firearm accidents...
If you want a laugh, how's this one: My sister-in-law is a police LT. She wanted to know if I needed any gun locks. "No, I lock them in my gun safe."
"You mean you don't put trigger locks on them?"
Actually I like that idea! But I'd take a big old mess of keys, attach them to the cable, and hold the lock section and swing it like a flail...
Just take it back for a refund nest time you're there.
I sorted them by key and kept 2 sets of 4 keyed alike. Used them to lock up my securement gear when I was a flatbed trucker. Gave a bunch to other truckers to lock up their stuff. I don't think more than a dozen of those 10,000 will see use on a gun. I still have those locks (as well as the locks that came with the guns) laying around the house waiting to find a use.
Good news is, the tool sheds and gates they lock will be more likely to protect a child than having them on a gun. It's another perfect example how the governmet can find ways to waste our money in the least efficient means possible.
I don't know about that. I think locking out the criminals and keeping my gun close at hand puts my family safety pretty high up on the list.
When you lock your car, are you protecting thieves from the car? If not, then why would you think you are protecting your kids from the gun by locking the gun?
Giving away free gun locks sounds like a really great idea, but look what's happening........they aren't being used for thier intended purpose.
Time to reevaluate the program???. Let's just wait and see ......It's darn near a given that more $$$ will be wasted on this before any action is taken.
Probably sounded like a nice idea in theory back in Washington.
My little brother and sister both have a Mossberg Bike Lock. I also have a Kimber toolbox lock on a craftsman tool case, doesnt keep it from getting stolen, but it keeps "not me" and "I dont know" from losing my tools.
I actually had trouble giving them away to some students. They said "Nah, they gave me all I wanted at the gun show." And yep, next gun show, I attended at Market Hall in Dallas, there was a booth near the front door with a mountain of cases of the same cable locks ...
How many do you want?
I'm a LEO in a small TX. town, and we received a whole bunch of them.
I have handed out, hundred's of them, and we still have hundred's of them left.
And yes, I gave some to kid's, for their bikes. I have one on my back, and side gate.
none on my firearm's.
