This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

Yeah, It’s a Man-Purse

I got tired of lugging around a half-empty backpack with no computer in it, so I switched to an EDC bag. Okay, yeah. It’s a man-purse. But it’s a tactical man-purse.


What To Do During a Break In: Part Two

In this second installment in our series on what to do during a break in, we’ll discuss what to do (and not to do) if you have family members or children at home during a break in.
