Buying a Speed Vault by GunVault.com Company

So. many are buying guns, not realizing that they have to buy a box or a lock for it before they leave the store. Luckily, I knew that but I did buy a Speed Vault made by GunVault Model SV 500.

This is my rant about this product and how the company is reflected in it.

I bought the SV 500 and was amazed at how poorly written the user manual was. I deal with foreign written instruction manuals along with being a do-it-yourselfer your and you do not show enough pictures or describe how to mount the bottom thumbscrews.
I am amazed and certain that you get multiple calls ask how you are to put the holder and pivot bracket on, before you close it, 1/2 way open, or what. No picture, not real discussion, which it is the most moving part in your kit.
The other issue is how vague the pointing out of the learn and mute button is, not to mention a poor description of how to program the unit. It oozes of someone writing some basic information in English and a 3rd world country trying to translate it in a user manual…
If you do not get lots of calls, they probably figured it out after a frustrating time because most gun owners tend to be mechanically inclined, but that does not help how poorly written the manual is written.

I wrote the company and lets see what they have to say.

Japan, Libya, and Life in our world

Within reason, I attempt to listen to World and Local News for 1/2hr. in the morning. The fact that Japan’s crisis is mounting ia overshadowed by Libya and barley a mention of Japan this am. Not a surprise were bombing Libya.
Japan’s disaster, sickness, death, and devastation is just starting as food and water diminish, along with waste control. So today we have yet one more situation to Pray for.

We are so fortunate in our country.

More Nasty Weather coming, Hold on from A reliable source

I found this quite sobering,

Currently, the strong El Nino is reaching its peak in the Eastern Pacific, and now finally appears to be exerting an influence on our weather. The strong jet has been apparent for quite some time out over the open water, but the persistent block had prevented it from reaching the coast. Now that the block has dissolved completely, a 200+ kt jet is barreling towards us. Multiple large and powerful storm systems are expected to slam into CA from the west and northwest over the coming two weeks, all riding this extremely powerful jet stream directly into the state. The jet will itself provide tremendous dynamic lift, in addition to directing numerous disturbances right at the state and supplying them with an ample oceanic moisture source. The jet will be at quite a low latitude over much of the Pacific, so these storms will be quite cold, at least initially. Very heavy rainfall and strong to potentially very strong winds will impact the lower elevations beginning late Sunday and continue.

This is where things get even more interesting, though. The models are virtually unanimous in “reloading” the powerful jet stream and forming an additional persistent kink 2000-3000 miles to our southwest after next Sunday. This is a truly ominous pattern, because it implies the potential for a strong Pineapple-type connection to develop. Indeed, the 12z GFS now shows copious warm rains falling between days 12 and 16 across the entire state. Normally, such as scenario out beyond day seven would be dubious at best. Since the models are in such truly remarkable agreement, however, and because of the extremely high potential impact of such an event, it’s worth mentioning now. Since there will be a massive volume of freshly-fallen snow (even at relatively low elevations between 3000-5000 feet), even a moderately warm storm event would cause very serious flooding. This situation will have to be monitored closely. Even if the tropical connection does not develop, expected rains in the coming.

In addition to very heavy precipitation, powerful winds may result from very steep pressure gradients associated with the large and deep low pressure centers expected to begin approaching the coast by early next week. Though it’s not clear at the moment just how powerful these winds may be, there is certainly the potential for a widespread damaging wind event at some point, and the high Sierra peaks are likely to see gusts in the 100-200 mph range (since the 200kt jet at 200-300 mb will essentially run directly into the mountains at some point). The details of this will have to be hashed out as the event(s) draw closer.

In short, the next 2-3 weeks (at least) are likely to be more active across California than any other 2-3 week period in recent memory. The potential exists for a dangerous flood scenario to arise at some point during this interval, especially with the possibility of a heavy rain-on-snow event during late week 2. In some parts of Southern California, a whole season’s worth of rain could fall over the course of 5-10 days. This is likely to be a rather memorable event. Stay tuned…
