The Best Shotguns for Home Defense and Hunting

If there was a shotgun of choice for home defense, you would think that people would realize that a shotgun is the best choice for home defense. However, for some reason, people continue to purchase guns that just don’t work for the home defense role. Perhaps the most common of these is the 12-gauge shotgun. These guns are notoriously unreliable. Almost every 12-gauge shotgun that I can think of has had some mechanical failure. The “best” I’ve heard of is a Mossberg model nine that is guaranteed to work, but it is pretty expensive. My own experience tells me that a good 12-gauge shotgun is not necessarily a good home defense gun.

If you love shooting guns, then you are probably well aware of the very real and widespread popularity of the shotgun. It is a versatile type of firearm that has been in use for centuries, and it can be used in all sorts of activities. There are a lot of different types of shotguns, and if you are looking to buy one, it can be quite a challenge to decide the perfect one for your needs. That is why we are here to help you make a decision about the best shotguns for home defense and hunting.

It’s no secret that there’s no substitute for a good shotgun. They are a very useful tool to have in your home defense arsenal, as they do an excellent job of handling the close-quarters combat situations you may find in an actual home invasion. And, they are an extremely effective hunting tool, with loads of power, accuracy, and a smooth action that is perfect for taking down big game.

Derrek Sigler 19.05.21 Almost all of us have a gun or three in our safe. This versatile firearm is suitable for many situations and is an excellent tool for home defense and hunting. We all have our own favorite weapons, and the reasons we love them are even more varied. While there are many specialty rifles on the market, including rifles for competitions and home defense, I stick to shotguns because they can be used in almost any situation. Opinions on the best rifle for home defense are as varied as those on the best pickup truck. I will return to this topic in the near future. Just know that the shotguns I listed have a lot of experience and if your shotgun isn’t listed, it’s not because it’s bad. It just means he’s not right for me, or that I haven’t spent enough time with him to get to know him. Based on that, here are the best home hunting rifles you can buy. The shotguns listed below can currently be purchased online, which means, like any online firearms sale, they must be sent to your local FFL dealer for transfer documents and NICS verification. If you don’t know how this works, send us an email or contact an online firearms dealer who will be happy to guide you through the process of becoming a legal gun owner.

1. Benelli M1014 Limited Edition –Home Defense Pickup

If you’re looking for the perfect rifle for home defense, you can’t go wrong with the Benelli M1014. This weapon is currently used by the United States Marine Corps. If he’s strong enough to join the marines, I’ll trust him with my life. This semi-automatic 12-gauge can hold 5+1 rounds of 2-3/4 or 3-inch ammunition. It can be easily disassembled in the field without tools and can be adapted to your needs thanks to the availability of additional bars and handles. Admittedly, I’ve always been skeptical of self-loading rifles for defense, while shotguns are more reliable. In fact, we recommend the use of a shotgun for home defense. But, uh… It’s something else entirely. The M1014 rifle uses Benelli’s ARGO (Automatic Gas Control) system with two stainless, self-cleaning gas pistons located in front of the chamber and acting directly on its own rotary bolt. This system eliminates many of the moving parts that can clog a semi-automatic shotgun, making it easy to clean and keep clean. If price is not an issue for you, buy the M1014. For / No blocking like some other semi-automatic shotguns. Against/ Only the price holds him back The best rifle for home defense – tested and approved by the US Marines.

2. Beretta A400 Xtreme Plus KO – Editor’s Choice Hunting

word-image-5851 I admit I had a hard time choosing between the two weapons. I’ll talk about another gun later, but I ended up choosing the Beretta A400 because that’s the gun I carry most often when I go goose or duck hunting. It is a semi-automatic gas gun that fires cartridges of up to 3½ inches caliber. It’s equipped with all sorts of gadgets that improve accuracy and durability, and also reduce noticeable recoil – something to consider when shooting heavy loads at geese and turkeys. The stock is made of both a synthetic material that glides smoothly over your skin so you don’t feel the powerful recoil of the weapon, and a specially designed hydraulic recoil reduction system that reduces the felt recoil by 44%. The new Steelium barrels are stronger and more stable than ever, and their design improves cartridge evenness and reduces recoil even more. I’ve been using a version of this gun for a few years now, and although the price is higher, I feel more comfortable with it and am a better shooter because of it. It means a lot to me. For / The recoil reduction is enormous, the processing quality and haptics are excellent. Disadvantages/costs and additional cleaning effort Bottom Line / This shotgun is not good value for money, but in my opinion it is worth it.

3. Mossberg Maverick 88 Security – BudgetPistol

word-image-5852 If you want to buy a home defense rifle, you don’t have to spend a lot of money. After all, the gun is only used for training and hopefully not for real defense. This makes the Mossberg Maverick 88 Security a nearly perfect rifle for home defense. This is a 12 gauge, 8-shot rifle that is similar (but not quite) to the inside Mossberg 500. It’s a Mossberg, so reliability is not an issue. It is available in 2.4 and 3 inch calibers with an 18.5 or 20 inch barrel. The Maverick 88 Security has a cylindrical wedge for maximum dispersion. And for less than $400, you can’t go wrong. For / Reliable 8-shot rifle for home defense Contra/No for this price range and intended use Bottom Line / If you are looking for an affordable and reliable shotgun for home defense, check out the Mossberg

4. Benelli Super Black Eagle II – Editor’s Choice Part II

word-image-5853 Yes, I know there is a Super Black Eagle III on the market. I’ve shot with it and I think it’s REALLY good, but I haven’t spent as much time with it as I have with the SBEII, and the SBEII is $400-500 cheaper. Unlike the Beretta, the Benelli is an inertial system, meaning that the recoil of the fired cartridge triggers the rifling mechanism. It does several things. First, it reduces the number of internal parts of the weapon. This also reduces recoil, and for a shotgun that uses 3½ inch shells, this is very important. Does it reduce as much as the Beretta KO system? No, not for me anyway. I don’t mind the recoil so much, especially for hunting. If a flock of geese falls on my head in a mowed cornfield, I can guarantee I won’t feel the blows. Durability is a big advantage of Benelli. I’ve seen them fall in mud and water and they still work fine. Benelli provides the butt with Gel-Tek for recoil protection, and the barrels are treated with Crio technology for stability and accuracy. Is the SBEIII worth the extra price? Honestly, I can’t tell yet. I can’t wait to try something like this in the fall, I’ll be sure to let you know then. Cheers! Every time! Cons/Recoil is longer and light patterns don’t disperse as well. Conclusion/If you need a gun that you can row a boat with while hunting, try the Benelli.

5. Stoeger M3000 is thebudget hunting choice

word-image-5854 The Stoeger is in fact the little brother of the Benelli. Things get out of hand and they can’t even play on the same field. In reality, the Stoegers are made to the same design as the parent company Benelli, only they are made in Turkey and not in Italy. This is good news for those looking for an inexpensive semi-automatic pistol. The M3000 is a bolt-action rifle (where we’ve seen it before) that shares a common design with the Benelli M2 and SBE. Is that the same thing? No, but they are similar enough to see how these weapons work. The biggest difference is the run-in period. You take a Benelli and shoot straight out of the box with a smooth stroke. Stowers tend to use one or two boxes of cartridges and clean well once or twice before they get the best performance. Don’t overlook the SToeger if you’re looking for a cheap shotgun. Pro/ Works great and shares many Benelli parts Cons/ Requires a good break-in period for optimal performance. In short, this is one of the best guns in this price range.

6. STANDARD MFG DP12 – Incorrect house selection

word-image-5855 The intimidation factor is high. The standard MFG DP-12 is one of the most intimidating defensive shotguns you can find. Why? This is a double-barreled bullpup shotgun with a capacity of 14+2 rounds of 12 caliber. It is a serious hunting rifle, capable of firing a large amount of buckshot in a short period of time. The double barrel is equipped with the characteristic spread coils that create a brutal shooting pattern at 25 yards.  The entire weapon is only 29.5 inches long with two barrels of 18.78 inches. A full-length Picatinny rail is available for mounting optics, as well as slots for mounting additional accessories such as flashlights and lasers. It’s a defensive gun that screams: You picked the wrong house, punk. Front / 12 gauge double barrel with 16 bullets Cons / The price is a little high Conclusion/ If you want to deposit a large amount of lead, you can.

7. Savage Renegauge – New choice

word-image-5856 Fans of Stevens shotguns know that Savage knows how to make good working shotguns. When they introduced us to the Renegauge, which is made in the United States, we were really impressed with the way they make quality firearms. Based on Savage’s patented D.R.I.V. gas system. (Dual Regulating Inline Valve), the Renegauge quickly gained a reputation for being able to handle any load up to 3 inches and still run surprisingly smooth and fast. I was very impressed with the high turnover rate and the way the gun felt in my hands. It’s different than any other semi-automatic rifle I’ve tried, in the way it fits and feels, but it really works. This is one of those cases where you can believe the hype. Pro/Super fast and good feeling Cons/ Fairly new, so it’s harder to find a replacement choke now. Conclusion. If you want to buy one, do it.

8. Weatherby Orion – top/bottom Choice

word-image-5857 Hand loaded guns are where the money is. You can find them for over $10,000, and for as little as $400 or less. The O/U is a versatile rifle that is a personal favorite for hunting with a wading dog and for match shooting. They are also, in my opinion, the most visually appealing shotguns. How do you find a balance between aesthetics, functionality, quality and cost? A good place to do this is Weatherby Orion. The receiver is forged steel and the stock is A-grade walnut. The walnut makes a big difference to me. I love the look of walnut, whatever it’s used for, and with my fancy guns it’s a must. This rifle comes with replacement spools and is a pleasure to shoot. The price is also very reasonable. It’s not the most economical option, but it can’t hurt either. Pro/Class A nut plates, the pots are excellent Cons / I wish it came with more choke tubes for more applications. The end result is an excellent example of a quality O/U shotgun that shoots well and is something to be proud of. word-image-5858

Missing rifles

I’m sure some of you are laughing at this article right now because the list doesn’t include some extremely popular shotguns. Believe me, I understand. As you know, there has been a rush for firearms and ammunition in recent months, so it can be difficult to find what you want to stock up on. That’s what I started doing when I started making this list. I selected 15 shotguns that I consider the best and looked at how many of them could be found on special offers. The list quickly got shorter. You will certainly find more Mossbergs, a few Brownings, at least one Winchester, a Franchi and others on my list of the best hunting and defense rifles, and if they come back on the market for more than a few minutes, I will update and add to them. I don’t want you to read this and say this: He’s an idiot for not including the Mossberg 500. I didn’t mean to tell you that you have to have it and that it can’t be done. I’m not that bad.

Types of shotguns

With shotguns, you can choose from different types of action (how the gun works). Whether it’s semi-automatic rifles, single rifles, single shotguns, double shotguns or side-by-side double shotguns, you’ll have no shortage of choices when it comes to choosing a shotgun for home defense. The most popular choice and our selection of the best shotgun for home defense is a shotgun like the Benelli Nova Tactical. There are three main reasons why we prefer a shotgun over any other shotgun. Hopefully they will be available again soon.

  • Reliability – the pumps run smoothly and are easy to operate.
  • Number of cartridges – Compared to other types of shotguns, a shotgun can often hold more ammunition, so you can have more ammunition at your disposal.
  • Fear Factor – It may be a cliché, but the sound of a shotgun quickly deters burglars; it’s almost a universal language.

Rifle connection

The fit is critical to the performance of the weapon. If it doesn’t work for you, you won’t be able to participate as often as you would like. Let’s look at some common areas. The length of the trigger is the distance from the top of the trigger to the center of the butt. If the length is too long, the weapon will not reach the shoulder pocket, or the balance of the weapon will be shifted too far forward to shoot accurately. Many shotguns come with spacers to improve draw length, and it works great if you have someone watch you put the gun on your shoulder to see if it works. The fall is another element of the landing. To determine the drop height, shoot several times, preferably at a consistent target. If you shoot high, the buttress of your weapon, where the cheek rests on the stock (comb), is also too high. If your level is consistently low, you need to increase the comb. One way to tell is to pay attention to how your eye aligns with the bead at the end of the barrel. It sounds daunting, but it takes time and patience to get to that point. If you need help, a good gunsmith can help you shoot your bird in no time.

Types of shotgun shells and recommendations for home defense

There is also a lot of debate about which type of ammo is best for home defense. There’s birdshot, heavy rifle and bullets that are solid pieces of lead/copper designed primarily for big game hunting. We would say birdshot or buckshot is by far the best option. And even that is highly controversial. Discover the different options for shotgun ammunition here. Will the slug have more SDL energy? Yes, but there’s a big downside to not hitting your target. They could shoot through drywall or doors and possibly injure loved ones. There’s also a lot of recoil, which can throw you off target if you need to take a follow-up shot. Buckshot or birdshot is the best option. At close range, both weapons do serious damage to anyone stupid enough to let you pull the trigger. If you need proof, take a light picture yourself, for example. B. a shot with the number 8, and shoot it at a target from a distance of 10-15 feet. Cartridge, such as B. No. 2 or 00, has a similar effect to firing a pistol 5 to 7 times at a time, but with more energy. There are also .410 defense cartridges that use disc-shaped sprinkles. If you want to use the 410 meters, you should take a closer look at them. They are insanely destructive. Which is better to choose – buckshot or birdshot? There are different opinions, even in our offices. Some have shotguns loaded with buckshot, others with buckshot. The new ammo for short rifles, such as the latest Federal ammo, gives you more options and capacity because you can put many more rounds in your rifle’s magazine. Any type of shot will be very effective, especially at close range. The new short 12 gauge patterns for home defense may be just what you need. word-image-5860

Shotgun accessories

There is no shortage of accessories to add to your defensive rifle. There are interchangeable forearms with tactical flashlights and laser pads that add an extra element to your shotgun for home defense. You can add bullet holders to keep ammo within easy reach. A good option is the Monstrum side mount for the Mossberg 500/590 and Shockwave. It’s cheap, allows you to have extra ammo on hand, and adds a picatinny rail for mounting optics. If space does not permit, you can replace the stock with a pistol grip. The flashlight not only allows you to see who is rummaging in your refrigerator at three in the morning – a burglar or your drunk but loving neighbor – but it can also be used to scare. Not all villains are brave. If they hear a CLICK-KLICK, followed by a flashlight and/or laser beam in the hallway, chances are they will quickly take cover. Remember, the best solution to any conflict or intrusion is prevention or de-escalation. No one wants to get hurt, and the use of a firearm should be a last resort. As soon as you pull the trigger, everything changes. A flashlight can be useful, especially if you are holding the weapon with both hands, but has a serious drawback. Whatever you aim the flashlight at, you also aim the barrel of a loaded gun. What if it’s a drunk neighbor? Or your own child? One of the first and most important rules of gun safety is: Never point the barrel of the gun at anything you don’t want to destroy. Most officers we know advise dropping the flashlight and not revealing your location until you know who/what you are dealing with. However, it’s all a matter of personal choice, so add the accessories you think will meet your home security needs.

How much should I spend on a gun?

Spend as much as you want, but make sure the gun you buy works well and is safe.

What is the best caliber or size of gun for home defense?

The rifles range in caliber from .410 to the mighty .10, but we do not recommend the latter calibers. In a defensive situation, the .10 would be pretty brutal to deal with. If you want to know what we recommend, the answer is: what you like to record. And that goes for everyone, men and women. One of the things that really annoys us is when a woman goes to buy a gun and gets the stereotypical attitude of a salesperson. I’ll show you something you’ll like, little lady. Get experience and try as much as you can before making a decision. word-image-5861 If you are wondering if a 12 caliber is appropriate for home defense, the answer is simple. The larger the caliber, the greater the payload and the more destructive energy is transferred to the target. This leads some to say that more is always better. But is a 20 caliber suitable for home defense? Absolutely. The same goes for the 410 caliber. The .410 caliber revolver has recently experienced a resurgence in popularity with the release of Taurus’ Judge revolver, which fires .410 or .45 Long Colt ammunition. This has led to significant development of .410 loads for home defense. Anything you can shoot comfortably and work well with will work. Even the lightest .410 bullets will cause an intruder to seriously reconsider their life plans, even if they are shorter at the time.

Can bullets be fired from any weapon?

No. You need to make sure your rifle’s barrel is suitable for bullets, and then follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for chokes and bullet type. You get the best performance with a barrel designed for the bullet.

Can you have too many guns?

Stupid question. No, of course not, you can never have too much.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a home defense shotgun be used for hunting?

There are many uses for a shotgun in the home, so it’s important to consider which is best for you. Do you need a gun for inside the house in case of home invasion? Or do you need a gun for hunting big game? And then, would you need a gun for both? Or, would you use it for home defense only? The average shotgun shell is either a 00 buck or a 000 buck, the smaller of the two, and carries 1 or 2 pellets. When hunting, you will most likely want a larger number of pellets in order to take down larger game. You may also want to consider a shotgun with a longer barrel. A shotgun for home defense is a lot more than just a big gun. In fact, it is a potent tool for home defense and hunting. It can be used for shooting clay targets at the range, for clearing vermin from the yard, and as a formidable weapon against an intruder (and that is if you have the right ammo).

What shotgun gauge is best for home defense?

Many people talk about the best shotgun gauges for home defense, but haven’t you ever wondered what gauge is best? There are many different gauges on the market. How do you know which gauge to get? For those who live in a less populated area, it’s nice to know that you can scare off an intruder with a shotgun without having to shell out hundreds of dollars for a full-fledged shotgun. You can get a good shot, a cheap shot, or a really cheap shot with the right shotgun. The best shotgun gauge for you will depend on where you live, what you plan to hunt with it, and what you’re willing to pay.

What is the best 12-gauge shotgun for home defense?

There are many different types of shotguns for the purpose of home defense or hunting. One of the most confusing is 12-gauge shotguns.

RV History – The Vintage Era Towables – 1945 – 1970

This is a list of RV history from my opinion. The Vintage era of RV’s was the time between 1945 and 1970. A lot of people in this era had small homes and could not afford any more than a fifth wheel or a travel trailer. They wanted an RV that was small, light, easy to tow, and easy to use.

There have been many different kinds of RV’s over the years. The towables are the most common, with some classes of RV’s having a more utilitarian, utilitarian, or recreational feel to them. The following is a list of different classes of RV’s, and their approximate years of popularity, during the vintage era.

Between the years 1945 – 1970, the US government issued 1,432,000 vintage RV Restricted Vehicles (RVs) to veterans as part of a program called the Veterans Administration RV Program. These RVs were supposed to be used for recreation, but the program also served to demobilize the veterans by providing them with free RVs and some travel-related allowances.

In the first part of the Classic Car Era (1945-1970), we discussed how American industry led the Allies to victory, created a better all-around vehicle, and how these and other factors led to the creation of the leisure vehicle category. In the second part of the Vintage Era review of RV history series, we tell you how the RV industry became strong enough to weather any crisis. We also show you some of the great travel trailers from that era and why they are called canned ham trailers. Of course, we can’t talk about the vintage era without mentioning the iconic silver Road Bullets, the Airstream.

How the ancient world disappeared

During World War II, the RV industry adapted its production lines to manufacture the necessary military equipment. Some converted their vans into mobile hospitals, prison transports or morgues. Others will be completely refurbished to house weapons, aircraft and other equipment. After the war, most of these companies took a good look at post-war America and wondered what it would take to build vans again. The desire to get back on the road did not immediately appeal to the average American. The pre-war camper technology was outdated and needed a new look. Many boards, such as the popular Covered Wagon, saw no point in continuing. For this reason, most RV companies are closing their doors for good.

A new golden age in motorhome history – the vintage era

Now that the war is over, most military veterans have returned home. These young people were ready to move on with their lives, find a good job, settle down and start a family. Developers began to build suburbs. Middle America could move out of the city into single-family homes with the latest furniture. With the American economy booming, the new era has bright colors everywhere you look. Whether it’s your car, your furniture, the local restaurant or your new Technicolor TV, the objects around you represent a bright future. The urge to get in the car and go on holiday with the family in an SUV is back, but the public has new demands.

New definition of mobile home

When you look at your current RV, it’s easy to see that RV manufacturers go out of their way to make the vehicle look as much like home as possible. When you step aboard a luxury tractor-trailer or a top-of-the-range A-class motorhome, it doesn’t take much to imagine that you’re living life to the full in these models. The idea of mimicking vans in living spaces dates back to the early 1950s. Travelers wanted vinyl floors, a fully equipped kitchen and real hostess beds in the trailer. In other words: Travel caravan owners wanted to have the same luxury in their caravan as at home. Kids sleep on a four-seat dinette or an adjustable sofa bed, but even these have been upgraded. The exterior must have been as luxurious as the cars they towed. Campers from the antique era (1910-1944) have always had a certain appeal, but in those days they really had to shine. Design and construction materials have become more important for RV manufacturers to get the right look. The manufacturer’s response has led to weight problems. The concept of using light materials as replacements goes back to the time of the founders.

RV History Capital – Elkhart, Indiana

If you look at a map from the 1930s, Elkhart, Indiana, is not an active metropolitan area. It is a small town where the Amish and the English (non-Amish) live peacefully side by side. If you’re looking for a toll road in Indiana, you have decades to go, because it doesn’t exist yet. The question is how did this small town become the RV capital of the world? Milo Miller gave up his job as a commercial traveler. He decided to get into the RV business to better support his family. Miller did his job well, but he had a unique advantage: his location. Because of its location, it was between the future Motor City and several vendors. The automotive and mobile home industries have developed in southern Michigan, northern Indiana, and northwestern Ohio. Miller was in the thick of it. Wilbur Schult had his own business, but he needed a better location and manpower. He eventually bought out Miller’s company and formed Schult’s Trailer Company. By 1940, Schulz owned the largest mobile home company in the world, and also attracted suppliers from other manufacturers. After World War II, Elkhart was called the RV capital of the world by trade publications. By the mid-1960s, there were over 300 different mobile home manufacturers in Elkhart, Indiana. The oil crisis of the 1970s drove out many small brands, but the town’s location was ideal because auto parts suppliers, who made parts for cars and RVs, were close to both industries.

Army surplus rejuvenates tears and history RV

If you haven’t read our article on the era of classic cars, we recommend you read up on the origins of the motorhome. We already mentioned that the Teardrop trailer was the first self-built off-road vehicle in the 1930s. These magazines feature designs by aspiring RV designers. One of them was Wally Byham (yes, the first Airstream was a pile of wood that he built himself). After the Second World War, there was a lot of army surplus floating around. Companies had extra parts that the War Department never bought, or the finished units never got to the front because they were sold out. So when all these parts lay fallow, they were used by off-road enthusiasts. If you have the chance to visit an old drop-top trailer for sale or in an RV history museum, it’s definitely worth it. You’ll find Jeep tires, axles, suspensions and even projectile material from World War II vehicles. In the late 1940s, trailer builders were eager to get their hands on aluminum from aircraft. They were light, easy to handle, and if you had a board with the right design, you were the envy of everyone. Many of these post-war drops have different emblems than the original car they came from. You often see Army Air Corps badges with a round star. Obtaining a plaque featuring the female airplane mascot proved difficult as it was in high demand. If the manufacturers had been careful, the original green paint on the panels would still be there. The veterans who wanted to continue after the war removed the paint and used the materials. That’s why you won’t find many oldtimer trailers with the original paint of an airplane or a Jeep. Before you get angry, think about your grandparents, parents, siblings or other family members who served. Do they want a constant reminder of what they’ve been through? To those who have served, I thank you for your service to our country. To those who made the ultimate sacrifice, we will never forget you.

Shasta ushers in a new era in RVhistory.

There is one name that stands out in the history of RVs, that stands out in the vintage era, and that is Shasta. The Shasta Airflyte with its iconic Mercurial wings is the first image that comes to most people’s minds at the moment. However, the company’s founder, Robert Gray, did not bring this top model to market in 1941. He was a government contractor. San Diego, California, was the center of the Pacific front. Everything destined for the military went through San Diego on its way to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. As large as the base was, housing all the troops and support personnel was a major problem. Robert Gray’s Shasta trailers are excellent RV overflow housing to solve this situation. After the war, Gray continued to produce RVs under the Cozy Cruizer brand name, but the 14- and 35-foot Shasta trailers from the Van Nuys, California, plant did not appear on RV dealers’ counters until 1952. The first camper models were more square than the later models. In 1958 Gray opened a second plant in Goshen, Indiana, one of many in the RV capital of the world. These later models received Mercury’s rounded corners and front and rear fenders. As reviews from Shasta fans remained high, Shasta opened a third plant in Leola, Pennsylvania in 1963 to meet demand. Plants in Grapevine, Texas, and Battle Ground, Washington, will soon follow. In 1976 Coachmen purchased Shasta and retained it as a subsidiary for vintage style travel trailers. In the 1980s, Coachmen Shasta expanded its product line to include all categories of RVs, including campers, trailers, travel trailers and pop-up models. The expansion was short-lived, as in 2000 Coachmen downsized all of its various model lines to streamline production. When Forest River acquired Coachmen in 2009, they celebrated with a retro-styled 12-foot Airflyte boat that was only available for one year. The new parent company did not further develop the Airflyte because it could compete with the R-Pod.

They don’t drag them around like they used to, thankfully.

Today, Ford’s Godzilla engine is a 7.3-liter V8 that produces 430 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. Your truck or SUV has a steel frame and an aluminum body. The various components in the vehicle are lightweight to maximize fuel efficiency and traction. If you compare your car to one from the 1950s, it may be a work of art, but your modern truck or SUV will surpass it in every way. The 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air was equipped with a V8 that produced 162 horsepower. The vehicles of the classic car era had steel chassis, frames and body parts. More than half the power of the car drove it. Still, they were very beautiful! Since towing capacity is limited, motorhome manufacturers have kept their products on the lower end of the spectrum. If you’ve seen the 1953 movie The Long-Long Trailer, in which Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez go on an off-road trip, they use a 1953 Mercury Monterey with 125 hp and 218 lb/ft of torque to pull a 3.5-foot Redman New Moon. It took a lot of cinematic magic to make this film. In the real world, the Arnez family would take full advantage of the vehicle’s towing capabilities. For a modern comparison, the 2019 Ford Fiesta was equipped with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 112 horsepower and 202 pound-feet of torque. Before adding a tow bar to your two-seater, the Monterey had a steel frame and other components that could support the weight. New Moon had a solid wood frame and aluminum trim. The two brothers who made it presented it as the longest pendant in the world. Unfortunately, their popularity peaked during the war years as government housing. The film could not overcome the fact that most Americans did not have the vehicle to do it right.

Trailers for the transport of canned ham

One of the questions we asked at the end of our Vintage Era article was about the connection between processed meats and purveyors (we’ll come back to the snack cake in a bit). Answer: Spam. If you look at the original Spam box, it is square with rounded corners. In Europe, Spam meat refers to spiced ham or specially produced American meat. It’s incredibly nutritious (original recipe) and doesn’t need to be refrigerated. It is due to him that our troops were fed in the trenches and on the march on both fronts. Hormel has successfully produced this sealed food product. If you take a Spam box and lay it on one of its sides, you’ll notice that the shape is surprisingly similar to caravans from the 1950s and 1960s. The sides, roof and floor of the vehicle are flat. The front and rear of the van have a rounded or flat shape. Instead of using a square edge at the front and rear roof joint, the van manufacturers of the time rounded it off like a meat box. Hence the nickname of the canned ham caravan. The RV engineers didn’t have general specs on purpose, but we can’t be sure what they had in mind. Almost 100 different companies had their own version of this style. The advantage of this design is that the seal is placed deeper to minimize water ingress. The current one-piece rear, front, and roofing materials date to this early method.   Don’t worry, for those of us who follow a kosher or halal diet, roast beef has always been canned. Some famous names are:

  • Aloha 1954 in the mid 1970s. Aloha, OREGON (not Hawaii)
  • Comet 1947-1981. Wichita, KS.
  • Detroiters 1947-1980s. Detroit, Michigan.
  • Eljay Manufacturing 1950s-1960s. Winchester, North Carolina
  • Friendship for Mobile Homes 1957-1966. Friendship, Washington State
  • Go-Lite 1956-1968. Fremont, North Carolina
  • Kenskill 1946 to the mid-1970s. Burbank, California.
  • House of leisure 1955-1961. Salt Lake City, UT.
  • Nomad/Skyline 1951-1970. Elkhart, Indonesia
  • PleasureCraft 1955-1958. Cucamonga, California.
  • Cerro Scotti 1957-1997. Irvine, Pennsylvania.
  • Spartan 1945-1960. Tulsa, okay.

Wally Byham gets back to work on his silver twinkies.

Some call them silver bullets and others call them silver Twinkies (the famous children’s pastry). Whatever you call it, Wally Byam reopened the doors of Airstream after the war and created the most iconic brand still in circulation today. In fact, over 70% of all Airstream caravans are still in circulation today, including vintage Airstream models. During the Depression and the war, Byam closed the doors of his business because of the hard times. He ended up working for Lockheed for most of the war. In 1945, Curtis Wright wanted to open a department in his company to manufacture trailers. Walley had already built his Airstream Clipper with riveted hulls and other unique processes. Byam also openly chalked it up to Wright. Wright knew the partnership was not going to last, hired him and produced cars inspired by the Airstream for a few years until Wally left to reopen his factory. HistoryMotorhome – Airstream Overlander 1968 While you wait for the release of your favorite comic book (many of which date back to the vintage era) or other genre films, keep an eye out for the film Alumination, which comes out in April. Watch the documentary to learn the full story of Wally Byam and the development of Airstream. Byam and his engineers revolutionized the RV industry and introduced groundbreaking manufacturing techniques that the company and others still use today. The Airstream was the first to use aircraft aluminum, rubber torsion axles and a semi-shell body frame method. The construction method has changed little over the years. Byam immediately went back to work designing the 22-foot Liner, the 16-foot Wee Wind with the first screen door, the 28-foot Whirlwind with a door on each side, and the world-famous 22-foot Globetrotter. Byam and his fellow travelers have taken the Globetrotter around the world, proving the trailer’s longevity. The trailer has also proven that it is possible to travel in comfort and style. For a long time only one type of wood was used for construction. A long piece of plywood under the floor held the furniture and other furnishings together. In 2020, Airstream replaced the plywood with a wood-free composite, finally solving the problem of potential rot that is now rare. Pop-up campers are an important part of the history of campers word-image-5872

Ranger Rising

As we discovered at Antique Era, the history of the pop-up camper started with a tent trailer. These vehicles were canvas tents mounted on a towed trailer. The next technological leap did not occur until Hille Manufacturing developed the Ranger in 1954. The Californian company has developed a stool roof with sides made of tarpaulin. The rear of the trailer could be extended like a modern rear drawer (not like the trough-shaped beds of modern pop-up trailers). Hille only produced 200 models because the £1,000 caravan was too expensive for the time. The company closed in 1956, but the technology survived. The pulley system that lifts the roof is the heart of current models. There are cabinets, including wall cabinets, installed in the Ranger. There was a cooler and a sink with a hand pump. There are only a few dozen of these vehicles left in existence, but with a little restoration, this camper can compete with its predecessors.

Bring the vintage era to life with retro-styled carriers

If you like the vintage style, some RV companies are now producing modern models in this style. Today, these retro-style caravans feature modern amenities and construction, but you’ll find specific colors, floor plans and other features that will take you back in time. Riverside RV’s Retro range extends from a basic model to a 28ft family cabin. A classic black and white checkerboard floor, birch wood and four 1950s colors will get you in the mood for a sock hop. A modern retro caravan – Photo: Riverside RV Gulf Stream’s Vintage Cruiser has 11 floor plans ranging in length from 20 to 26 feet. You’ll appreciate that all of these travel trailers weigh less than 5,000 pounds, so you won’t need a big SUV to pull them. You can offer your children a classic sleeping experience on convertible furniture or opt for bunk bed models. Although Timberleaf Teardrops are not vintage aesthetically, you still get the same vintage feel. The construction details are taken from drawings of earlier drop designs. The company uses the highest quality materials and processes to make durable RVs, but it’s easy to get caught up in one of the 1940s versions. If you want to be part of recreational vehicle history by owning an old Airstream, there are a few companies that specialize in restoring these vehicles. Their representatives help you find your favorite model, plan the restoration, and their team gets to work. Many of these companies can offer modern features, such as. B. Flat screen TV, strategically hidden to achieve a vintage look with modern features.


In our next overview of RV history, focusing on the Classical and Neoclassical eras, you will learn what distinguishes these two eras. We will also inform you about important developments in motorhome technology and events in the motorhome world.Since the 1990s, RVing has experienced a resurgence, and for good reason: it’s a fun, affordable, environmentally friendly way to travel. Yet there’s more than one way to travel in an RV, and this includes RV history. When you’re thinking about the RVing lifestyle, RVing from the 50s, 60s, and 70s might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Yet these decades have been some of the most prolific in RVing history.. Read more about alumination documentary and let us know what you think.

Frequently Asked Questions

What did the first RV look like?

As the old saying goes, “waste not, want not”. The first RV (recreational vehicles) were built to be as simple and functional as possible, with lots of room for people to relax and enjoy their time away from their base of operations. They were built for family camping trips, road tripping across the country, and even for beaches and getaways. In 1938, the RV industry was just a few years old and its birth was not easy. When the first Terraplane was unveiled in 1933, it immediately sparked battles between the two main competitors, the Winnebago and the Overland. The latter marketed its products as a sophisticated motor home, with a top speed of 86 mph. However, the Terraplane kept the top speed at 90 mph, and boasted a top design speed of 100 mph, which was also the top speed of Ford’s Model A (the most popular car in America at this time).

When was the first RV ever made?

The first RV was built in 1945, the advent of the “shopping center” as we know it today, which was a place where people could go to buy toilet paper and batteries. There was also a time in the 50’s when there was a shortage of toilet paper. Some people sold their house to buy a roll of toilet paper. Such was the era of small and simple RV’s that were built on the back of a pickup truck. The first RV we know about was the Airstream trailer in 1929. In the 1950s, Airstream started producing the first travel trailers that were built for comfort. Starting in the late 60s and early 70s, Airstream began to incorporate more amenities and frills into its trailers.

What is the oldest travel trailer?

The trailer industry is like the Wild West in many ways, and the same can be said about the trailers themselves. Developers are constantly trying to push the envelope when it comes to innovation, and the quality of trailers has shown the highest level of advancement over the past few decades. Towable trailers of the ’40s, ’50s and ’60s used the same construction and design principles as their static cousins, so evolution didn’t change much from the ’50s through the ’70s. Towable camping trailers were available in a wide array of styles, from the low-slung fiberglass Airstreams, to the bell-shaped fiberglass Cocotas and the stout fiberglass Winnebagos. The term “towable” dates back to the early 20th century and, for whatever reason, was originally used to refer to the horse-drawn buggies that were common in the early 1900s. This term was soon co-opted by those who enjoyed camping and developed the need to transport their tents, sleeping bags, and the like from their campsite to their home without the need for a car.

As an associate representative of Amazon, receives revenue from eligible purchases. Eleven is a difficult but fun age. It’s a time of transition from childhood to adolescence, so it makes sense that your 11-year-old would be looking for a new bike to transition from small to large. Whether your young rider is a beginner or already has some experience, here are six of the best bikes for 11-year-old riders:

Model Engine Year Price
Razor MX650 Dirt Rocket electric bike Electric motor NA Try it on Amazon.
Kuberg Young Rider Cross Dirt Bike Electric motor NA $1,999.00
Kawasaki KX65 Dirt Bike 2-stroke engine 2020 $3,699.00
Suzuki RM85 Dirt Bike 2-stroke engine 2019 $4,199.00
Yamaha TT-R110E dirt bike 4-stroke engine 2020 $2,299.00
Honda CRF110F Dirt Bike 4-stroke engine 2020 $2,399.00

If you’re looking for a bike for a young rider, there are three things to look out for: 1) What is the price and where can I get it cheaper? 2) Is the bike safe? 3) Is this bike suitable for your child? We will address each of these issues with respect to each bike.

Razor MX650 Dirt Rocket

Razor is a very popular company that makes electric motorcycles for young people, and the Razor MX650 Dirt Rocket tops my list of economical and fun machines.

What is the price?

This bike from Razor is the cheapest on this list. I always find it at the best price on Amazon (of course). I’m not allowed to list Amazon prices on this page, but you can easily see the current Razor MX650 prices on Amazon here. There’s nothing like finding a quality bike at a lower price!

Is this bike safe?

I find most electric bikes very safe for children of all ages. The Razor MX650 in particular, has some great features that will help your child stay safe without boring their 11-year-old mind. Here are some important features that contribute to the safety of your child when using this bike:

Maximum low speed:

Speed is one of the main factors that can cause serious problems for a child on a motorcycle. The faster the bike goes, the harder it is to control. Razor solves this problem with the bike’s top speed of 17 mph. 17 mph may seem very slow, especially compared to driving 17 mph in a car. But on a small bike, 17 mph seems fast enough and enough to get the tension up without losing control. Overall, I’d say this is a good pace for any 11 year old runner.

Disc brakes front and rear:

Many youth electric bikes have only one set of brakes, front or rear. But in reality, big engines have front and rear brakes for optimal braking. That’s what I love about the Razor MX650. The Razor MX650 is equipped with front and rear disc brakes that are designed to brake and stop when your child needs them. What goes up, goes down, and what goes faster, eventually goes down again, right? Let’s do it safely, with the front and rear brakes.

Adjustable rudder:

All children are different – in character, in desire, in size. And their size changes rapidly as they grow. This is where adjustable rudders come in. Whether your child is just starting to ride the Razor MX650 or is already an adult since purchasing this bike, the adjustable handlebars on this bike will provide a comfortable seat for them throughout their growing years on the hills, the track, or around the neighborhood.

Is this bike suitable for your 11-year-old?

So, if you’re still a little unsure about this bike, you’re probably wondering: Is this bike suitable for my 11-year-old son or daughter? I have a few suggestions for this bike. First, the battery of this bike has a short life span of about 40 minutes with continuous use. Think about your child and how often and for how long they cycle. For some children, a bike is only needed for walking around the neighborhood or visiting friends. If this is the case for your child, I would say that this bike is a good choice for him. On the other hand, some kids want a bike for trail riding or running. If this is the case with your child, I suggest you buy a bike with a longer range or that runs on gas. Nobody wants to be stranded with an engine that won’t start.

Kuberg Young Rider Cross Dirt Bike

Kuberg is a European company that produces high-end electric bikes for children. The Kuberg Young Rider Cross Dirt Bike is one of my favorites in the Kuberg group for its quality, performance and looks. If you want to know more about this bike, you can find it here on the Kuberg website.

What is the cost of a bicycle?

The Kuberg Young Rider cross-country motorcycle costs about $2,000. When I discovered this electric bike, I was surprised by the price. It costs about the same as a petrol motorcycle! Why don’t you just buy one? But as I delved deeper into this pedelec, I became more and more impressed with its features and quality that make it a worthy contender for your child’s affections.

Is this bike safe?

Kuberg’s designers and manufacturers have put a lot of thought into the construction of their Young Rider motorcycles to ensure optimal safety for young riders. Here are some features that will keep your child safe while driving:

3 maximum speed settings:

I think it’s a very good safety feature that gradually gets kids used to driving at high speeds. The Kuberg Young Rider Cross has three adjustable speed limits, so your child can learn to handle the bike without worrying about accidentally going too fast. The top speed of this bike is 17 mph, which is an exceptional top speed that your child can safely have fun with even after they master the bike.

Safety switch:

The safety switch is also an excellent feature, despite its ominous name. The bike comes with a switch attached to it. When the switch is pulled, the motor immediately loses power. Why does your child need it? Suppose your child falls off his or her bike for some reason. A fall may leave small scratches, but at least if the switch is removed, the bike won’t spin without a rider checking its path. Thanks to the safety switch, if your child falls off, so does the bike.

Hydraulic brake system:

A hydraulic braking system attached to the front and rear of the bike is an effective system that allows your child to brake when needed. When faced with unexpected terrain or obstacles, these brakes perform well and respond quickly to your child’s need for adventure.

Is this suitable for your 11 year old?

This bike is a bit high-tech and has many interesting features, but is it suitable for your 11-year-old? I’d say so. Here’s why: Whether your child is a beginner or already has more riding experience, this bike offers great customization options for every stage of riding. The adjustable top speed allows your child to continue learning safely, and gives them a little extra challenge when needed in their flying career. This bike is designed for long rides and exceptional durability. The battery of the Kuberg Young Rider cross bike has a life span of two hours, which is more than enough time to make exciting rides without having to stop because of a dead battery.

Kawasaki KX65 Dirt Bike

Kawasaki has done a great job of producing quality motorcycles for all ages and experience levels. The Kawasaki KX65 is a great example of a motorcycle that allows an 11-year-old to gain more experience behind the wheel of a gas-powered machine, while still staying safe. If you are interested in the other specifications of this motorcycle, you can find them here on the Kawasaki website.

What is the cost of a bicycle?

The 2020 Kawasaki KX65 costs about $3,700. With its great features and riding potential, this bike is definitely worth considering for your young rider who is ready for a bigger challenge.

Is this bike safe?

Uni-Trak single-shock system

The suspension of a bicycle is important for the overall comfort and safety of the cyclist while riding. The Kawasaki KX65 uses the Uni-Trak independent suspension system. This system offers adjustable spring preload and rebound damping for the rough trails and high slopes your young rider will travel. This excellent suspension protects the bike and rider’s body from impact energy while riding.

Disc brakes front and rear:

Effective and reliable brakes make a big difference, I would say the difference between fun and injury, when driving any vehicle, especially motorcycles. Front and rear disc brakes provide reliable stopping power when your young rider needs it on the track or trail. No need to hug the trees with these brakes!

Sufficient fuel capacity

The capacity of the fuel tank is another important feature that should be mentioned here, because it includes everything. The last thing you want, when having fun with your child, is to have to turn around early because their bike ran out of gas. The Kawasaki KX65 has a one-gallon fuel capacity, so you and your kid can have fun without having to go home early. Even if you need to get home quickly, a good fuel tank will make the process much safer and less stressful.

Is this bike suitable for your 11-year-old?

Gas bikes can be a bit tricky when it comes to buying the right one for your 11-year-old. Here are some things to consider when choosing this Kawasaki motorcycle: First, this engine has no gas and is equipped with a hand clutch. These are two aspects that are characteristic of large motorcycles. However, if your child still needs to practice the basics of steering and riding, I would say that another bike would be better for him. However, this bike is an excellent option for a young rider who already has some experience and is ready for the next step that will challenge him and help him develop his motorcycle skills. One more thing. The seat height of the Kawasaki KX65 is 29.9 inches, which should be suitable for most 11-year-olds. But I would say it’s always a good idea to have your child sit on the bike and ride it for a bit to make sure it fits properly.

Suzuki RM85 Dirt Bike

Suzuki is another great company that makes motorcycles for all ages and experience levels. The Suzuki RM85 motorcycle is a great option for your 11 year old rider looking for a more mature motorcycle to ride. For more information on this motorcycle, visit the Suzuki website here.

What is the cost of a bicycle?

The price of the 2019 Suzuki RM85 motorcycle model is approximately $4,200. I would say this bike is definitely built for more experienced riders, so it falls into the price range of the bigger bikes and is worth considering for your younger rider who is ready for a more serious challenge.

Is this bike safe?

This Suzuki bike is definitely designed for the more experienced rider, but it has some great features that make it a great bike for the 11-year-old rider who is looking to improve their skills. Here are some of the features that make this bike a great option for transitioning to a new bike:

Six-speed transmission with continuously variable transmission:

Shifting gears can often be a challenge when you first start out, especially if the gears are very brittle and difficult to shift. The Suzuki RM85’s six-speed transmission is much smoother and easier to get used to once you get the hang of how it works. You don’t have to worry about the gears getting stuck, because the Suzuki RM85’s transmission is designed to run smoothly.

Easily accessible coupling:

The clutch on the Suzuki RM85 is long and very easy to find while driving. This is a particularly useful feature for riders who are gaining experience using the clutch, as they do not have to search for the clutch to find and reach it; thus, they can avoid distractions on the track or course.

Textured seating surface:

The Suzuki RM85 has a brand new saddle. But beyond the novelty and glamour, this chair has another purpose. The saddle has a textured surface on the sides, which provides excellent traction and grip on the rider’s knees while riding. This not only reduces the risk of falling off the bike, but also increases the stability and control of the bike when riding and cornering at different speeds.

Is this bike suitable for your 11-year-old?

This bike is not for all 11 year olds, but it might be what your experienced 11 year old is looking for. The Suzuki RM85 is an adult motorcycle with adult features usually only found on adult motorcycles. But if your child is ready to make the transition to junior bikes, this might be the bike for them. The only thing I would recommend, besides your child’s experience, is their size. The seat height of the Suzuki RM85 is 33.5 inches. This is relatively large for some 11 year olds, so I would make sure your child can comfortably and easily hold the bike with at least one foot on the ground when in the riding position. Large motorcycles are not necessarily dangerous for young children, but you must consider their comfort level with the motorcycle and their experience level.

Yamaha TT-R110E Dirt Bike

Yamaha makes great bikes for young people, from entry level training to bigger bikes. The Yamaha TT-R110E is a great bike for 11 year olds just starting out or looking to gain more experience. More detailed specifications about this bike can be found here on the Yamaha website.

What is the cost of a bicycle?

The 2020 Yamaha TTR-110E costs about $2,300. This is honestly one of the cheapest bikes for aspiring teens, but it’s always worth checking to see if the owner will sell it for less than the new bikes.

Is this bike safe?

This bike has great safety features that a mature young rider can enjoy while improving their riding skills. Here are some features to consider:

Transmission with automatic clutch:

When children learn to ride motorcycles, the clutch can often cause them problems when they have to get used to controlling the bike and keeping their balance. The automatic clutch makes this bike an excellent learning tool for your young rider. The bike has four gears that are easy to engage and shift. They allow your young rider to get used to shifting without having to use the clutch.

Low seat height:

The seat height of this bike is low (26.4 inches), which is suitable for most 11-year-olds to ride. The low seat height of this Yamaha bike not only makes it accessible to kids of all sizes, but also gives kids plenty of room to stand and move around while riding.

Ignition with key:

Here’s a feature you probably appreciate more than your 11-year-old son. A key operated ignition system means that the motorcycle cannot be started without the key. If you don’t want your 11-year-old to drive while you’re away, just remove the key and he won’t be able to start the engine unless you come back with the key.

Is this bike suitable for your 11-year-old?

I think this bike is perfect for most 11 year olds who are more experienced or old enough to learn to ride. The only problem an 11-year-old might have with this bike is its large size. Everyone’s a little different. So if your child is older for their age, I recommend trying the bike out to make sure it’s not too tight before making the final purchase.

Honda CRF110F Dirt Bike

Honda is one of the most famous companies that make high quality motorcycles – small and large. We’re talking about one of Honda’s mid-range youth motorcycles here: Honda CRF110F. For more information on this motorcycle, visit the Honda website here.

What is the cost of a bicycle?

The price of the 2020 Honda CRF110F is around $2,400, but it’s always worth searching for this bike on sites like Cycle Trader and Craigslist.

Is this bike safe?

This bike is especially safe for young cyclists who are new to cycling or who are looking for a bike that is bigger than their current bike. Here are the three main safety features this bike is equipped with:

Adjustable throttle:

An important aspect of learning to ride a motorcycle is the throttle, and the throttle can cause a lot of problems if you are not yet used to handling it. This is where the adjustable throttle limiter comes in handy for youngsters learning to drive. The adjustable throttle limiter allows you to limit how hard your 11-year-old can turn the throttle, and therefore how fast he can go. If the speed limiter is set correctly, you and your child will have less to worry about if they lose control of the bike if they step on the gas too much.

Backup Kickstarter :

Nowadays, many motorcycles are equipped with an electric starter instead of a kickstarter. There is currently a lot of debate about which is better, but the Honda CRF110F backup kickstarter represents a middle ground between the two options. In most cases, your child will likely start the Honda CRF110F with an electric starter. And why not? It’s quick and easy to get them on the trail. But if you’re afraid the electric starter will fail, the engine has an emergency starter motor that will start it if nothing else works.

Automatic coupling:

The automatic clutch is another great feature for your 11-year-old learning to ride a motorcycle. Once your young cyclist gets used to balancing the bike, handling it, etc., he won’t have to worry about complicated handles while riding. Instead, they can use their feet to shift the bike’s four gears, making the process smoother and easier as they master the ride.

Is this bike suitable for your 11-year-old?

This bike is suitable for most 11 year old cyclists, beginners or slightly more advanced. The automatic clutch makes shifting gears easy and smooth. The adjustable speed limiter allows you to slowly adjust the speed your child needs for a comfortable, fun and safe ride, even as they become more experienced. The seat height of the bike is 25.9 inches. Again, it’s always a good idea to make sure the bike is appropriate for your child, as a bike that is too big or too small can be more dangerous than anything else. But if the bike fits, I’d say it’s a great bike for your 11-year-old and he won’t be disappointed with this reliable machine.This is a detailed guide on camping gear, including tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads and other items, with prices.

Follow along as I walk you through the process of developing a pricing strategy for a product, including an example of a pricing strategy that I used for a product that is now on the market. Next time you’re considering upgrading or adding a new tent to your gear collection, consider a lightweight freestanding model, like the new MSR Hubba Hubba NX 1 or MSR Hubba Hubba NX 2. These two models are the lightest freestanding tents on the market, weighing in at just over two pounds each. They’re also quick-to-set-up and easy to carry with the included backpack straps, making them the ideal choice for backcountry camping.

What are the 5 pricing strategies?

I hope by now you’ve realized that there’s no silver bullet to make money online. Thankfully, there is a lot of help available to guide you through the process. And the best part is that each of these strategies has a proven track record. If you want to make money in the outdoors, you need to know how to price your services. If you don’t, the potential customers who will buy your goods may have no choice but to go elsewhere.

What are the 7 pricing strategies?

There is no shortage of campgrounds to choose from, but picking an affordable one can be a bit confusing. This guide will cover popular strategies used by campgrounds, and provide a comprehensive list of the best and worst options. Many campgrounds will have their prices “hidden” under the “Rates” section, making it hard to tell exactly what the real cost is. To avoid getting caught, you should check out the campground’s site before making a decision. Camping is a great way to get outside and explore nature, but it can be an expensive hobby. This guide will help you determine how much to budget for your trip and how to make your camping trips a little more affordable.

The deer with a hairy eyeball: The case of ‘Damn Unlucky’

Yeah, you read that right. That’s the title of a blog post by an incredibly bored deer (who is also quite lucky, if you ask me)! This is a story about a deer who got a nasty scratch on its eye from a flying tree branch, causing it to scratch and tear up its eyes. An eye infection set in, resulting in some serious swelling. The deer’s original eye was already quite swollen, so when it couldn’t see straight, it got thoroughly freaked out and ran away from the herd.

In this story, we explore the case of a deer that had a cellulitis infection in its eyeball, due to this deer’s skin infection of the eye with mites. These mites were known as deer eye mites, and this deer was suffering from the wound, which was swollen and covered in the mites.

So you’ve most likely seen a deer with “pasty-white” eyes in your lifetime. But what exactly causes them? And why are they so seemingly “unlucky?” Well, the answer to the first question is quite simple—it’s pretty much a genetic mutation. It’s been estimated that about 25% of white-eyed deer in the wild are afflicted with the condition, and it’s believed to be a recessive gene. But what causes it? It’s thought that they’re born with a different color of eye, but the lack of pigmentation causes them to appear “white.”

Damned Misfortune had, quite simply, a hairy eyeball. Scientifically, the Tennessee deer had corneal inflammation, a very rare disease. The deer were killed in August, and the strange discovery was made at the same time. (Photo courtesy of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency). Bob Zinc , author of the article. One early morning, I saw a headline in the National Deer Association’s online newsletter: Buck’s sample had corneal dermoids. In my pre-coffee stupor, I thought: Why does a man need cornmeal? Wait, what are dermoids? Lindsey Thomas Jr.’s article was, in a word, fascinating. I just finished a lecture on the human genome and how amazing it is that all or most of our cells have a DNA blueprint to create whatever we want, anywhere in our bodies. Even cooler is that the genes for making nails are only activated in the cells at the tips of our fingers (and toes, in the case of toenails), the muscle cells are in the right places, and the genes for our compound eyes are in the sockets of our skull. This process is a matter of genetic regulation. So we don’t have toenails on our heads, eyeballs on our knees, etc. However, sometimes this process goes wrong. The fruit fly has mutations that turn its feelers into legs – cool, but not if you’re that fly. Other flies may have two sets of wings. Sometimes the development process gets very confusing, and we’ve seen a cow with two heads, turtles with heads at both ends, and humans with tails. Yes, some human babies have a tail (there are less than 50 known cases), which is usually surgically removed. The term for the genetic expression and growth of an abnormal structure in an abnormal location is atavism. The aforementioned monster, who would be Damn Unlucky (DU, with apologies to Ducks Unlimited), was shot in East Tennessee in late August 2020 at the age of 1-1⁄2 while wandering around in a stupor and obstructing traffic. No wonder DU was wandering around; hair was growing out of his eyeball. Remember that vertebrate eyes consist of an iris (the colored part), a pupil (the dark, open center), and a lens, all covered by the cornea – the thing that, when you scratch it, hurts terribly. DU’s cornea was the site of random skin genes doing their job and forming hair, as they should, but not there. DU’s condition was exacerbated by EHD, epizootic hemorrhagic disease. Unlike CWD – which is actually something completely different – EHD is caused by a virus that spreads the bulky no-see-ums. Populations are often severely affected by HDE, but the viral infection in the population disappears over time. CWD, caused by increasing amounts of abnormal protein, a non-living entity, accumulates in the soil as an environmental toxin and continues to infect deer regardless of the number of deer in the area. The deer’s genotype can prevent the development of the disease, but it is currently considered 100% lethal. EHD and CWD are very different from each other. However, DU had EHD and showed similar disorientation symptoms as deer with CWD. It is not known whether DU’s eye problem is related to EHD. Many deer had EHD without reports of corneal dermoids. This deviation of the eyeball is called corneal dermoid. The term dermoid comes from dermis (skin) and refers to a functional piece of skin that grows where it normally would not, in this case in the AU cornea. Genes can produce glands and other features in addition to skin. Many other animals have suffered from this condition, including dwarf rabbits, hairless guinea pigs (how ironic), livestock and at least one human. Sir, I’m sorry. Thomas reports that the pathologist suspected that DU had been suffering from the condition since birth and that he probably survived so long because he stayed in a relatively safe urban area and was cared for by his mother, at least in the early days. It is not known whether the dermoid increased in area and severity over time, or whether DU was in fact blind from birth, or whether his condition gradually worsened. Damn Unlucky is one of two deer that suffer from this condition.  Another known whitetail with corneal dermoids was an 11⁄2 year old doe killed in St. John’s Parish. It was described in an article by LaDucer et al. in the Journal of Wildlife Diseases. Unlike the DU, this doe had three relatively small spots only on her left eye. Necropsy revealed that these three formations on the deer’s cornea consisted of hair follicles, sebaceous glands (which produce oil) and apocrine glands (which produce sweat), and well-differentiated cartilage. The most surprising thing to me is that the authors report finding a cystic tarsal gland in the eyelid! Talk about bad genes! The tarsal gland (foot gland), which appears on the eyelid… These corneal deroids are a reminder of how well coordinated the developmental systems of vertebrates are, from a single fertilized cell to millions of cells developing in the right places to create a body as complex as that of the white-tailed deer, which had hairy eyeballs in only two known cases – out of a total of millions of prey.There is a natural phenomenon that is all to common in the rural parts of the world. This phenomenon, which is known as “Damn Unlucky”, occurs when a deer has an injured eye and loses its sight in that eye. The animal, due to its erratic behavior, may become a danger to humans. There can be upwards to three such deer in any given location. There are both male and female deer with the ability to reproduce, so the odds of finding such a deer in a given location is higher than the “Damn Unlucky” phenomenon..

8 Best Ice Fishing Tents of 2021

If you’re looking to stay warm during the cold winter months, you should check out a winter tent. Here are eight tents that will keep you warm in the coldest weather.

Regardless of how cold or how many people are around, there’s always a place where ice fishing is allowed: a lake. But what if you want to go out on the ice in a warm tent? Then you need a tent that not only survives the elements, but offers the space inside that you need for a good fishing spot.

While the idea of spending hours trying to catch a fish isn’t for everyone, for those who enjoy it, there’s much that can be learned about the sport from a good ice fishing tent. The following are eight tents we’ve tested to see if they could stand up to the brutal Canadian winter.

7. Best foldable ice chest for the money: OTTER Outdoors Pro Lodge X-Over Ice Fishing Lodge

Otter has made an award-winning design even better. This glacier can be considered one of the best. If I had to list the reasons why you should buy X-Over, I don’t know where to start. Users will find that this protection starts with a quality sled from Otter and ends with something even better. The sled is durable, which is not surprising considering Otter is a leader in sled building. It is easy to pull, resistant to abuse and offers plenty of space. The square frame is much better than the round models used in many other shelters. Not only does it make for a stronger frame, but it’s also easier to deploy. The leather is very durable and provides excellent insulation, even on the coldest days. Many users comment that it can be too warm, especially if there are several people inside and you have to take off your coat. The days when an auxiliary heater is needed are very rare. Finally, there are the doors. Otter was the first company to introduce a side entry, and this feature has become popular with users. No more tripping over others or your equipment when you are outside. I’m sure this design will be copied someday, but for now it’s hard to top Otter’s Pro Lodge X-Over. PROS

  • Equipped with some of the best sledges in the world
  • The large square frame provides a maximum catching area
  • Extra thick fabric for extra strength and insulation
  • The side doors make a difference and make it much easier to get in and out.


  • At 124 pounds, this shelter is very heavy.
  • Cost is not a cheap resort

8. Best hub ice fist for the price: ESKIMO Quickfish 2 stroke ice fishing tent

word-image-5926 It’s just an exceptional ice fishing lodge. Eskimo has taken a very popular but often problematic hub design and turned it into one of the most comfortable tents on the market. This shelter has all the advantages of the hub design without the disadvantages. Inspired by the popular folding hunting hatches, this shelter can be assembled in 60 seconds. Simply remove each side, lift the roof and install six ice anchors. You’ll catch fish in no time. The fishing area is 25 square feet, so there’s plenty of room for you and your favorite companions. Weighing in at just 21.5 pounds with a quick release backpack, it’s easy to carry, even if you don’t have a sled. It doesn’t have the brittle materials, cold drafts and questionable stability that most shelters suffer from. IQ fabric is not only very warm, but also very durable. With two layers of fabric on each side of the insulation, it will last a lifetime. The extended skirt, which can be attached directly to the ice, reduces gaps so less cold air is blown onto your feet. Double stitching, YKK zippers and reinforced corners ensure reliable use over many seasons. All-metal, fiberglass sleeves and one-piece rods provide better support for greater stability in all conditions. Although this shelter costs a little more than the others, it is well worth the money you spend on it. If you spend your days on the ice, you can do so with ease and comfort with this model. PROS

  • Very easy to transport and install
  • High quality materials
  • Manufactured by one of the leading companies in the ice protection industry.
  • IQ insulation and longer skirt for better heat retention


  • The windows are very small and limit the view
  • Condensation is a problem
  • Heavier than other comparable models

Why you should buy an ice cream maker Benefits of a high quality ice chest

word-image-5927 The reason for making an ice shelter is simple: Protection from the elements. It’s hard to have fun when you’re cold and windy or snowy. Ice protection keeps nature at bay. This way you can extend your time on the ice. A high quality ice cream stand will do even better. Thicker, better-insulated walls keep the inside warmer, and stronger construction prevents your shelter from tipping over or collapsing in the wind. A good quality shelter is even easier to transport and install. It also lasts longer and saves you money in the long run.

Customer advisory service How to choose a tent for ice fishing

word-image-5928 If you’ve never bought ice protection before, prepare to be amazed. There are many styles, sizes and brands to choose from. They all claim to meet your needs, but none of them say: Don’t buy from me. You should determine what you are looking for and compare models before making a decision. Don’t think that price alone is an indicator of quality. Many low-end covers last a long time, and some high-end models you’ll leave at home after your first outing. We can help you by reviewing some of the features you should consider when purchasing.


Yes, there is more than one type of shelter for kingfish. There are four. Let’s start by taking a closer look at each of them. Flipestyle word-image-5929 This is the most common model. It consists of a tent and a foldable metal or fiberglass frame attached to a plastic sled. When not in use, the shelter is stored in a sled. To use it, you need to put the sled in place, unfold the tent, secure it and fold it. The skids that remain are used for storage or even as seats. These shelters are very stable and provide excellent protection from the wind. They are also highly mobile, making them a top choice for anglers who like to move around a lot. Unfortunately, they can be very heavy and only accommodate one to three anglers. They may also be the most expensive of the four types.   Cabin style word-image-5930 They look like a small square tent and are set up in the same way. The biggest advantage of a hide is that it has a floor. A floor that can be drilled through creates a barrier between you, the ice and the elements outside. With a heater, it can be surprisingly comfortable. Of course there are disadvantages. They are not quick and easy to assemble, so they are not suitable for frequent travel. They also do not include sleds. They are light enough to carry on the back, and many come with a bag for that, but for other gear you will probably need a sled.   Shape of the hub word-image-5932 This option is reminiscent of the pop-up hunting caches that have become very popular in recent years. They are made of a durable, even insulating, fabric exterior. This fabric is attached to an internal frame that folds into a compact bag when not in use, but can be quickly assembled into a tent-like structure. Since the construction is generally higher and lighter than a flip-up, it is usually attached to the ice for better stability. The advantages include ample space for multiple anglers, quick installation, light weight and low cost. However, the extra weight and space can also be a disadvantage. In high winds, these shelters are less stable and can fall over or be damaged.   A break in the wind word-image-5934 They are not necessarily shelters, but they provide limited protection. Instead of a full enclosure, the windbreak looks like a big tent like you see at the beach. Once mounted, it covers the angler in the seated position on three sides. The construction is similar to a flip-up, there is a rigid inner frame covered in fabric. Benefits include low cost, ease of use and high mobility. The disadvantages are the limited protection against the elements, the small size and the insufficient stability in strong winds.


The larger the accommodation, the more people you can take with you, or the more equipment you can store if you are travelling alone. If you like company or want more space, more is better. Keep in mind, however, that larger sizes usually mean more weight, higher cost, and sometimes less heat.


word-image-5936 You probably don’t want to be on your feet or on your knees on the ice all day. This means that a comfortable fit is a priority. Folding awnings usually contain one or more seats. Some may even go on to have criminal records. Most other models do not include the seats; they must be purchased separately.


The type of material that makes up the leather or exterior is particularly important. Most ice tents are made of nylon or polyester, although some are made of the same material. The thicker the material, the more protection and durability it provides. Thickness is measured in deniers, and a 600 denier fabric is thicker than a 300 denier fabric.


word-image-5938 If you are fishing in particularly cold conditions, an insulated shelter is advantageous. Without insulation, you will need to add a portable heater to maintain comfort. There are many different types of insulation. You should look for one that not only stores heat, but also transfers solar heat. Although insulation can be critical in cold weather, it increases the price and weight of the shelter.

Available options

There are always a few benefits that can make the trip even more enjoyable and influence your choice when comparing different models. These parameters include lighting, storage areas, size or location of doors, and the ability to open windows when needed.

Top brands

Choosing an established manufacturer is a good way to start your search. While it is impossible to discuss all manufacturers of ice fishing tents, here are some of the most popular.


word-image-5939 Based in Plano, Illinois, the company is one of the oldest manufacturers of fishing tackle in America. From bait management systems to landing nets and of course ice guards, Frabill is a leader in the field. Shelters on the ice range from structures for one person to larger structures that can accommodate more than four people. They also offer plug-in and folding models. Although Frabill is known for its high quality products, its ice shelters are reasonably priced and ideal for the average ice fisherman.


word-image-5940 The company is headquartered in Cumberland, Wisconsin, in the heart of some of the most challenging ice fishing areas in the country. Since 1960, Eskimo has provided the equipment to meet this challenge and has done so incredibly well. Their ice shelters include both collapsible and upright models in a wide range of sizes. They are known for their patented fabrics and insulation capabilities that are claimed to be 35% warmer than the competition. While their products are slightly more expensive than some of their competitors, they are certainly not the most expensive. Their main target market is anglers who spend a lot of time on the ice, even in difficult conditions.


word-image-5941 This is another business in the heart of the ice fishing district in Rogers, Minnesota. They are undoubtedly the leading manufacturers of ice fishing equipment, including shelters. It was the first company to introduce a convertible shelter. Their engineers were the first to use Thermal Trap insulation in shelters and clothing. The Stealth series was the first tarp to use Tri-Bond technology to achieve a completely dark interior, much to the delight of trolling and sport anglers. Every year their products become one of the most innovative and sought after on the market. Although Clam offers several low-cost models, many of its products cost three to four times more than the competition. Their target market consists of the most dedicated and hardcore ice anglers.


word-image-5942 How do you pack fishing gear in a cooler? How you pack your gear and enclosure depends on the specific style and equipment you choose. The foldable shelters have a built-in sled, so you already have a place for your stuff. In some flips, you can put the smallest and lightest gear on the sled, with the folded shelter on top, and the largest gear on top of the shelter. The canopies of the high chair and cabin are smaller and more compact, so they can be carried in a bag. There is no room in this bag for additional equipment, so it must be carried in a separate sled.   How do I install ice protection? It depends on the type of shelter you are using, as each shelter is built differently. Foldable shelters are towed to their location with a sled, then the shelter is unfolded, secured and folded onto the fisherman. Shelters of the cabin type are either transported on site or towed on separate sledges and set up in the same way as a tent. Hub roofs are also transported or towed to the installation site, but assembly is much easier and faster. The side walls are pulled until they are secure, then the roof. The cab and hub may also require ice anchors attached to the underside of each wall to provide more stability in windy conditions.   Recommended reading: The best ice exercises: Definitive guide 12 tips and tricks for safe ice fishing!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best ice fishing tent?

It’s summer, and that means a lot of hours spent outdoors. Whether it’s hiking, camping, or just hanging around the campfire, one of the most common activities is ice fishing. However, if the fish are too far away to use a regular ice fishing pole or lure, what should you use? Today we’re going to look at the best ice fishing tents to use during your next ice fishing trip. Anyone who has the pleasure of spending time outdoors on a frozen lake or river will understand what an essential piece of gear the ice fishing tent is. Even if your ice fishing is just going out on the lake for a couple of hours, it is still a worthwhile investment to buy a decent ice fishing tent because of the protection it provides you from the elements. There are many different brands and models of ice fishing tents on the market, but the one that tends to do the best is the Coleman® Camo™ Ice Fishing Tents . These tents are built to withstand the harsh winters of the north and can be used year round.

Who makes the best ice fishing shelter?

At some point in your life, you’ve likely dreamed of owning a small cabin in the woods and making it your home. If you’re not big on building, you can always purchase a pre-built cabin from a home center or other retailer. But if you truly want to get in touch with nature, there’s nothing better than building your own ice fishing shelter. No matter the season, it’s almost impossible to beat a trip to the great outdoors for an ice fishing excursion. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran, or you just found yourself in a new spot, a quality ice fishing shelter is one of the most important items you’ll need to get your trip off to a great start.

What should I look for in an ice fishing tent?

Don’t let the temperatures drop. In the spring and summer months, ice fishing is a great way to spend time outdoors. Whether you choose to ice fish for trout or walleye, you don’t need to shell out $100 or more for a fishing tent. This guide will help you select the best ice fishing tent for your budget, on your fishing trip. Most ice fishing tents are the same: a block of ice encased in a large cloth that will keep the ice cold for a long time. However, it’s important to get a tent that will keep the ice cold for more than a few days, because when the ice melts the tent will start to warm up.

On The Water Celebrates 25 Years

On The Water is celebrating 25 years of publishing in 2013. This year is a big one for us in the editorial department. We are announcing the creation of On The Water Field Guides , our line of books on hiking, camping, and boating topics. You have seen us publish magazine articles for many years, and now we are going to get back to our roots.

We have grown and evolved over those years, and we continue to delight our customers by providing the best outdoor products available.

On The Water is a journal that reports on a wide range of activities and issues outside of traditional camping. From hiking, biking, and motorcycling to sailing, canoeing, kayaking, and camping in the wild, On The Water is there with you to provide you with the best information on such activities.. Read more about on the water tv and let us know what you think.Bill Hough (left) and Chris Megan pose for the first cover of On The Water magazine. This photo was taken on a dock in Falmouth, Massachusetts in March 1996. Almost 30 years ago, I arrived in Cape Town for the first time. I was a young twenty-something who wanted to conquer the world as a sales manager for the newspaper group The Enterprise. I met Bill Howe through a consultant. He and his sister Margaret wanted to expand the family newspaper, which was soon taken over by their father John Howe. My first conversation with Bill lasted almost five hours and we hit it off immediately. A few weeks after Bill arrived on Enterprise, we fished his 17-foot whaler off the Elizabeth Islands for spring flounder. I’ve been to the Cape from time to time, but I’ve never seen Elizabeth Island, except Woods Hole. One trip along these pristine shores was enough to captivate me. The rest of the summer I fished with Bill whenever we could get away, usually at night when our kids were asleep. At that time I had three children under four and Bill had two under three. We learned how to get by without sleep, sliding over rocks on his classic Montauk boat, drifting with the current and looking for eels in the dark for the big bass hiding on the shore. The nervous pull of a nervous eel, followed by a jerk in the night and the snapping of my line, was addictive and we couldn’t get enough. There’s nothing quite like the explosion of a trout in six feet of water on a new moon, and that’s exactly the feeling Bill and I wanted to convey when we came up with the idea for On The Water magazine. The following year we had another child in our family and the dream of starting an angling magazine slipped away, but we never lost sight of the bright idea that became On The Water magazine. I had four children under the age of five at the time and time was a precious commodity, but together with my holy wife (thank you, AnnaMaria!) I worked hard and fished a lot when time allowed. I bought my first boat, a 20-foot Shamrock with an onboard direct drive and full keel, and the dream was getting closer. Finally, in 1996, Bill and I had the time and resources to begin publishing On The Water magazine. is Chris Megan’s first boat, a 20-foot Shamrock with a traction engine and a full keel. In 2005, Bill gave me the opportunity to become publisher and sole owner of On The Water while he focused on growing Enterprise Newspapers. I am eternally grateful and Bill will always be my dear friend. Besides Bill, there are many other people we thank for making On The Water what it is today. This includes our current and past contributors, as well as hundreds of contributors who have pushed the boundaries of what a fishing magazine can be. We thank our passionate audience of anglers and like-minded people! Thank you for subscribing to On The Water magazine, listening to On The Water’s angling adventures, following our digital and social platforms, fishing the Striper Cup, visiting our stores and celebrating StriperFest with your family. photo of Megan’s family enjoying a day at the beach at Tarpaulin Cove. word-image-2848 For over 25 years, you have helped us define On The Water as a place where passion and relaxation come together. Whether it’s a trout stream, a sandy beach or the open ocean, our goal is always to help you get to the place that means life on the water to you. So congratulations on your 25th anniversary, OTW, and thanks to everyone who made this ride go smoothly and mostly dry – unlike the 20-foot Shamrock, which I still love so much!

8 Best Bedside and Under Bed Gun Safes of 2021

Guns are a common feature in the backcountry. They’re used for hunting, defending small trails and campsites, and even for giving a small bushwhack a bit of extra firepower. But while owning a gun may seem like a good idea, doing so can also be very dangerous to your health, as there are some safety precautions you need to take.

If you’re a gun owner, then you know that having your firearms close by when you need them is important. This is especially true if you live in a high-crime area. For this reason, bedside gun safes are some of the most useful, and they’re also some of the most expensive. Gun safes are a type of security vault designed to keep your firearms and accessories safe, available, and hidden. The benefits of a bedside gun safe are the obvious ones–you’ll have your firearm in the room you sleep in–but more importantly, you’ll have it within easy reach should you need it.

Gun safes are a common way to keep your guns safe from theft. They are a good option for your guns because they are relatively inexpensive, safe, and secure. Bedside safes and under-bed safes are among the most popular gun safes on the market. They are not the most expensive options but they are not the cheapest.

Underbed safes vs. night safes vs. other home based weapon safes

Under-bed weapon safes and night safes serve the same purpose: They secure your firearms by storing them for quick access. Unlike other gun safes. Most gun safes are carefully designed and hidden. They are often fireproof. They protect your collection against theft and unwanted access. However, large, rugged gun safes often have more secure locking methods that are slower to open. And when faced with an intruder, you don’t always have time to get to the cabinet or even leave the room to get to the gun safe. Home Defense gun safes are not designed to hold your entire gun collection. They’re only big enough for two weapons. Often these are faster access methods that are not as burglar-proof as the larger ones. Some fit in drawers. In general, you need a large safe for the bulk of your gun collection and a smaller, faster safe for your defensive weapons. word-image-5996 The difference between a nightstand and an under-bed safe is convenience and size. A nightstand fits in or under a nightstand, so all you have to do is walk up to your weapon, enter the code, swipe your finger or click on the RFID tag and get your weapon out. With the safe under the bed, you have to get out of bed or make an effort to reach the safe. But when it’s open, you have access to a larger pistol or even a rifle!


  • These gun safes allow you to keep weapons on hand in case of an emergency.
  • They are also useful to prevent children from finding your weapons and causing a tragedy.



  • These gun safes are rarely fireproof.
  • Under-bed safes and night safes are designed to protect firearms from other family members and generally do not offer much protection from theft.

How to choose a safe nightstand or gun

Gun safes, even small ones, are a serious investment. Some gun safes can be worth as much or more than the weapons hidden inside! Of course, you don’t want to spend money on a product that isn’t right for your needs. So let’s try to figure out which type of safe will keep your firearms and your family safe.


word-image-5998 The first choice is whether you want a gun safe that fits on your nightstand or one that fits under your bed. Your furniture can sometimes help you make this decision. If you don’t have a nightstand or desk next to your bed, you can’t have a nightstand weapon. However, if your bed frame extends to the floor, you cannot install a safe under the bed. For example, some safes can be installed anywhere. For example, the compact Titan safe, which can also be installed between the mattress and the headboard. Night safes are easier to access.


word-image-5999 Weapon locks for under the bed make it possible to store larger weapons. If your defensive weapon is a 12 caliber shotgun or an AR-15, your only choice is one of the long gun safes. And all the boxes are under the bed (unless you have a huge nightstand!). However, if your defensive weapon is a handgun, almost any safe will do. However, this depends on your gun or revolver and any accessories. For example, a full-size 1911 with a 5″ barrel, RMR scope and flashlight might not fit on the otherwise good Vaultek VT20i. But a 1911 stock is good too. If you plan to arm a loved one and keep multiple weapons under surveillance, you will need one of the larger gun safes.

Input methods and access speed

word-image-6000 Another factor to consider is how you plan to enter the trunk. All of the safes listed above have one or more of the following four burglary capabilities:

  • RFID
  • Biometrics
  • Keyboard
  • Key

Let’s take a closer look at each of these methods, as they each have their own advantages and disadvantages. RFID word-image-6001 RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. Both the safe and the RFID tag are equipped with a radio receiver. The RFID reader dome emits radio waves and the RFID tag receives these waves and is energy efficient enough to be powered by it. It answers with an identification number. If these data match the expectations of the RFID reader, the safe is unlocked. RFID tags can be part of a wristband, a device you attach to your keychain or even a sticker. You can stick this sticker on the casing of your phone or on any other object. Sticking the sticker directly on the phone may not work since the electromagnetic field of the phone may interfere with the radio waves used for identification. For RFID devices, only one RFID tag may be attached to the device when it is powered up. However, you need to keep an eye on these RFID devices, even though that can be as simple as keeping your keys on your nightstand. In addition, RFID tags can sometimes malfunction, so it is advisable to check them from time to time. RFID increases the price of the safe and requires electricity to operate. Biometrics word-image-6002 Biometrics uses unique biological markers, in this case fingerprints, to unlock the safe. When you install a biometric safe, you lock multiple fingers at different angles. Then when you place your finger on the sensor, it reads the fingerprint and compares it to the data. Is this appropriate? Then the trunk is unlocked in seconds! However, fingerprint readers generally use capacitive sensors that are sensitive to too many factors to be comfortable for some people. If your finger is too dry, the meter may not work. Excessive moisture can also cause a breakdown. And some people can’t get up to read, no matter how many times they try. Moreover, biometrics always require energy to operate. Fortunately, all biometric gun safes have another way to unlock the safe if the quick fingerprint doesn’t work. Keyboard word-image-6003 You can enter a numerical code into the safe using the keypad. If the combination matches the previously set combination, the safe is unlocked. Many safes have electronic number plates, which are often (but not always!) backlit so you can see the numbers even in the dark. The ergonomic shape of the keys, which resembles that of the human hand, can also help you find the keys in the dark. The lack of power also makes electronic keyboards useless. The same applies to excess electricity in the form of an electromagnetic pulse. There are also mechanical combination locks that do not have these disadvantages. Mechanical pushbuttons that activate a mechanical lock do not suffer from power loss, but this option is rare. However, many people prefer the added security of a mechanical lock. Key word-image-6004 Key locks are simple and are often used as a replacement for electronic access methods. The problem with a keyhole is that you can choose any keyhole. And the tubular or barrel style used in most night safes is also vulnerable to penetration. However, as long as you don’t lose your keys (and don’t keep them near the safe!), this is a reliable way to access the safe.

Safety / Installation

word-image-6005 Overnight safes are not as secure as the big safe in your closet. That’s not the point. Still, such a safe can be much more secure than a locked wooden box. Almost all gun safes that are placed under the bed or on top of the bed have at least the option of securing the safe with a steel safety cable to prevent it from growing and floating away. Wrap it around the bed frame so the thief has to disassemble the bed to remove it. It is even better to use a safe with pre-drilled mounting holes. You can drill suitable holes in the bed frame, the bottom of a desk, a nightstand or even the floor and screw the safe to a secure object.

Hornady Manufacturing Company

word-image-6006 Hornady is one of the biggest names in the American firearms industry. Hornady, based in Nebraska, is the largest independent ammunition manufacturer in the world. They also sell high quality reloading parts and the tools needed to load ammo at home. In fact, Hornady is one of the most innovative ammunition companies. So Hornady invented the LEVERevolution cartridges, which finally made it possible to use ray bullets in lever-action rifles. Hornady also works with other companies, including Ruger, to develop patterns, such as the .375 Ruger. But ammo isn’t the only thing Hornady makes. Hornady also pays special attention to firearms safety. Mainly safes and weapon storage cabinets, but also weapon racks and dehumidifiers. The Rapid Safe line is the most technologically innovative range of gun safes to hit the market in recent times. Instead of relying on expensive and complex biometric technology, Hornady has equipped its safes with robust RFID technology. However, Hornady gun safes are not the most theft-resistant safes on the market. None are fireproof, and half are ordinary gun safes. However, if you need speed and are more concerned about unwanted access than theft, Hornady safes are among the best on the market.


word-image-6007 Vaultek is a company that focuses entirely on technologically advanced weapon safes. Not all are equipped with biometric fingerprint readers, but many are. But biometric technology is not Vaultek’s only achievement in the world of gun safes. Vaultek offers an app for iPhone and Android that can connect to its vaults. This allows the electronic components of the safe to be controlled and the alarm to be activated in the event of an attempted break-in. Some safes are also equipped with WiFi. Another small but handy feature is the backlit keyboard that lights up when it detects your hand. But what’s even better is the way Vaultek responds to criticism and discovered security holes. A vulnerability in the LifePod series of locks was recently discovered that people familiar with the platform could exploit. The security specialist found a way to get in through the side of the case and access the software button from the outside. In response, Vaultek redesigned the LifePod to prevent access to the button when the door is closed. An update kit that fixes this vulnerability is available for free. This is a good response from a company that cares about the safety of its customers. Most other companies would not respond to this vulnerability in this way, let alone offer a free patch!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best bedside gun safe?

Gun safes have been around for years, but they’re not very efficient. Traditional bedside safes are too bulky (from a gun’s perspective), and their smaller boxes just can’t hold enough to be useful. The most common bedside gun safes are the gun case and the gun chest, and they both have their problems. Gun cases and gun chests do give the gun a little more protection from being stolen, but they lack space to keep a gun’s accessories in separate compartments. Gun safes are a hot commodity these days, with more people buying them than ever. With the recent tragic reality of school shootings and other gun incidents, it has never been more important for responsible gun owners to store weapons safely, especially if they have children. This article will look at the most effective handgun safes available today, from the latest technology to the least expensive options.

How Fishing Dollars Contribute to Conservation Efforts

Every year, anglers and conservationists alike spend tens of millions of dollars on gear, travel and licences to make a strong impact on the conservation of endangered species. Unfortunately, with all the fishing, anglers never stop to think about how their actions directly affect species conservation. If more anglers were to work towards conservation efforts, they could have a greater impact than they currently do.

“Sport fishing is a billion dollar business that funds conservation efforts throughout the world,” says Paul Strobel, president of the World Wildlife Fund’s (WWF) United States branch. “Other forms of wildlife protection and conservation don’t come close to the monetary value of sport fishing.”

In the fight for the future of the environment, it is often the overlooked catch that makes a big difference.

Fishing is not only one of the oldest and most sustainable forms of recreation, it also has a huge economic impact on our economy. Fishermen are the backbone of a number of businesses that account for more than 800,000 jobs. Jobs in the fishing industry range from manufacturing to selling fishing tackle and fishing tackle shops. To put things in perspective: The amount of money spent by fishermen to support fishery-related retail sales is said to be 51st on the Fortune 500 list.

How much revenue do fishermen derive from the sale of licences and equipment?

There are 33 million sport anglers age 16 and older in the United States. Annually, anglers spend $48 billion on boat equipment, gasoline, fishing tackle, licenses and other fishing-related products. In 2010 alone, excise taxes on package cars totaled $390 million and license sales totaled $657 million. In addition, $403 million was collected in private donations and total state agency revenues were $1.45 billion.

Where does revenue from taxes and duties go?

Many people hear about the state excise tax, and their next logical question is: How do they spend the money that increases the price of my equipment? Compared to other federal taxes, the Dingell-Johnson Act of 1950 gives fishermen direct visibility into how their taxes are spent. By law, 10% of the value of the fisheries products is paid into the fund. Once the money is raised, 100% of it is donated to the Wildlife Restoration Fund and the Sport Fish Restoration Fund. This money is then transferred to the states based on the number of permits sold by each state. At the state level, the law requires that all permits sold go to state wildlife conservation, fishing or hunting programs. This money cannot be allocated to other governmental entities or used for projects that do not fall into these categories. All the work done through licence fees and tax revenues benefits the fishery and all fishermen. Bill O’Callahan stands on the banks of the Hoosick River in Williamstown, Massachusetts.

Examples of the use of excise money foractivities

  • In October 2015, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation announced funding for 13 grants totaling more than $1.2 million. The grants were used to restore forests and rivers in six New England states. Funding was provided for 13 miles of eroded banks and 118 miles of streams. Participating organizations include Atlantic Salmon Federation, American Rivers, Connecticut River Watershed Council, University of New Hampshire, Merrimack River Watershed Council, and Trout Unlimited. The six organizations received a total of $403,400 in funding and were represented by Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut. Measures taken include improving trout habitat, restoring fish passage in streams and recruiting volunteers to help with many of these projects.

As a result, millions of dollars in fishing industry incentives are being utilized by governments and non-profit organizations to protect endangered species, such as the critically endangered vaquita marina, from overfishing..

Frequently Asked Questions

How are conservation efforts funded?

Funds from the state and federal governments support a variety of conservation efforts around the country, from funding wildlife studies, to building wetlands, to reforestation projects, and more. But how exactly are these funds distributed? What types of projects are supported? How much money is spent in each state? When most people think of conservation, they think of national parks or wildlife preserves, but there are also dozens of conservation efforts that are funded by non-governmental organizations, many of which count fishing as a major component of their efforts.

Who contributes the most to conservation?

The amount of money the federal government spends on fish and wildlife conservation has been declining steadily since the mid-1990s. In 2001, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) received $56 million in receipts from the Pittman-Robertson Act and its associated excise taxes. Three years later that number dropped to $27 million. A decade later, in 2011, the FWS received $16 million in Pittman-Robertson Act revenues. Most people can’t make it out to the woods to catch a few fish, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t contributing to the conservation of fish and wildlife habitat. The money you spend on fishing goes to a wide variety of initiatives, such as the purchase of new boats and tackle, expenses for field research, and even funding of partnerships like the International Game Fish Association’s (IGFA) partnership with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS).

How much money do hunters contribute to wildlife conservation?

The topic of this blog entry is the debate about the economic benefits of hunting and fishing. In this chapter, I will outline the facts and figures behind the economic benefits of hunting and fishing. For many people, the idea that one person’s “catch” can make a lasting impact on the environment is hard to believe. It’s also a difficult concept to grasp, especially when you realize that only one percent of the world’s population fishes. According to the World Wildlife Fund, there are more than 1.2 billion fishermen and women in the world, and when their combined efforts are taken into account, about $4 billion is spent each year to protect the fish and animals that are harvested by commercial and recreational fishermen around the world.

Origine du sac

L’origine généralement admise du terme “duffle bag” vient de la ville de Duffel en Flandre, en Belgique, où le premier sac polochon aurait été fabriqué en tissu dense. Aujourd’hui, le terme désigne simplement un sac cylindrique avec une ouverture supérieure, utilisé à des fins diverses.

Bagage à main comme bagage à main

Les sacs peuvent varier considérablement en taille et parfois même en forme, mais la plupart des sacs font 22 pouces ou moins de longueur et peuvent facilement être transportés dans un avion. Les grandes valises peuvent être prises si elles ne sont pas entièrement chargées, et cela peut être un bon moyen d’éviter de payer pour les bagages si vous ne prévoyez pas de revenir avec tous vos biens.

Sac de voyage contre valise

Les valises sont généralement optimisées pour une et une seule chose : les vêtements. Si vous avez un tas d’équipements de sport volumineux ou beaucoup de chaussures et d’autres articles de forme bizarre à ranger, le sac polochon est la meilleure option pour vous, car il vous donne plus de flexibilité dans l’utilisation de l’espace de rangement disponible.

Qu’est-ce qui contient le plus : une valise ou un sac ?

S’ils sont de taille proche, vous pouvez faire rentrer plus de choses dans le sac que dans une valise rigide. Toutefois, si vous voulez éviter les rides, optez pour une version rigide.

Un sac de sport peut-il être mon bagage à main personnel ?

Tant qu’il passe sous le siège devant vous, vous ne devriez pas avoir de problèmes. N’oubliez pas de ranger les élévateurs. Les agents de bord n’approuveront pas si vous ne le faites pas. Fais-moi confiance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which duffle bag is the best?

If you’re headed on a camping trip, or simply running around town, you need to be prepared. There are many different types of backpacks and duffle bags, but which one is the best? I’ve spent the last two months studying the top brands and models, and have concluded that the bag you choose depends on what you want to carry with you. Duffle bags are one of the biggest camping gadgets out there right now; you can find bag after bag after bag of the same thing—but not always good ones. You want a bag that can fit your gear all in one place, not one that only holds half of your things. You’re looking for a bag that can actually take abuse, since you’ll be throwing it around in the back of your vehicle.

What size duffle bag should I get?

If you’ve been hunting for the perfect duffle bag for your gear—and you know that you’ll be doing a fair amount of traveling with it—you want to make sure that you get something that’s big enough to fit everything you need. And, of course, you want it to be stylish, too. If you’re a frequent traveler and you’ve been toting around big duffles for a while now, you probably know that there’s a little pouch of the bag hanging out in the back of your mind. You’ve been to the mountain, the beach, the lake, and everywhere else and you wonder “What size duffle bag should I get?”

What are good duffel bag brands?

Your duffel bag is your most essential piece of equipment when you’re out in the backcountry. For long trips, where you might need to carry a sleeping bag, tent, headlamp, and clothes, it’s good to have a bag that can do it all. On one hand, a duffel bag is a simple bag with a simple purpose. You put all your stuff in there, and you carry it with you. It’s simple, and it’s easy. But a duffel bag can also be a lot more than that. For example, it can provide a place to keep your stuff organized, and it can help you keep organized. But the best thing about a duffel bag isn’t just how it helps you, it’s how it helps you keep it all organized. Here’s why.

8 Best Biometric Gun Safes of 2021

It’s not often that technology and the outdoors come together, but that’s what makes these biometric gun safes so great. These safes are literally designed to keep your guns safe from those who would try and steal them.

What are the best biometric gun safes of 2021? For the summer, get to know the top 8 biometric gun safes that are available on the market, and which one is the best.

It seems like a good idea, doesn’t it? When you think about it, leaving a loaded gun lying around can be a bad idea. Not only is it a potential fire hazard, but also it’s a serious safety hazard. A gun can be stolen, or your gun could be used in an accident, or your gun can be used to harm someone else. So, you want to keep it locked up, and you want to lock it up securely.

When to choose a biometric weapon safe

Firearms should be stored in a safe place when not in active use. The ideal gun safe is strong enough to withstand fire and all break-in attempts. But they’re not very fast! The principle of a biometric safe is that you can open it by touching or sliding a finger. This reduces the time spent fumbling with keys or entering easily forgotten PINs on the keypad. Fingerprint gun safes, however, have a weakness: They are not as robust as traditional safes. Even if the rest of the construction was equally solid, the electronics are a weak point that can be easily damaged. This means that biometric safes are the best for home gun protection. Keep a pistol or rifle in your home so you can respond to a break-in within seconds. They’re not for everyone. But they’re safer than hiding a gun under a book in a nightstand. And even small safes fit in this box!



  • Access to biometric vaults is very fast compared to other unlocking methods.
  • These gun safes are usually small and can be hidden near the house.
  • You can fingerprint multiple people to give your spouse access to the gun without having to remember a PIN or carry a key.


  • Batteries become discharged over time
  • Biometric safes are more expensive than other gun safes.
  • The electronics are the weak point and cannot survive the fire.
  • The sensors cannot read your fingers if they are too wet or too dry.

Selecting a biometric gun safe

word-image-6070 Once you have decided that you need a biometric safe or a gun safe to keep your weapons handy and protect your family, you still need to decide what type of safe to buy. Biometric weapon safes range from small devices that fit in a pocket to large safes weighing more than 50 kg. Of course, you can’t use one as well as the other. If you don’t have a lot of money, the BILLCONCH smart gun safe is a fairly inexpensive but reliable choice. The Vaultek VT20i is an excellent choice if you want to travel with your gun or store it in a desk drawer. And if you want to hide your weapon behind a fingerprint reader, you can choose from several safes from Barska. If you are still unsure, the answers to the following questions may help you decide.

What do you keep in the boot?

word-image-6071 A good tip is to buy a safe that is big enough for everything you want to store in it. If you want quick access to an AR-15 for home defense, buy a Barska 4 gun safe. If you have multiple firearms for home defense and want to divide them among family members, buy a 16 shotgun safe. Otherwise you need a gun safe. Biometric gun safes can be used for more than just storing weapons. A two-compartment model, like the Viking Security VS-20BLX safe, is a good choice for storing a firearm, as well as jewelry, documents and other valuables. However, if you don’t want to hide other items, a larger safe will cost more without adding value.

How many weapons are you hiding?

word-image-6072 If you live alone or are the only person in the house who uses a firearm for self-defense, consider buying the smallest safe you can afford. Smaller safes are easier to hide, and you have less to investigate when responding to a break-in in the dark. However, if you live with other people who are familiar with firearms, it is advisable to keep everyone’s firearms in a safe that can be opened quickly. The Stealth biometric handgun safe is an excellent choice for families with multiple shooters. Again, I recommend keeping only the weapons you plan to use in a biometric safe and leaving the rest in a slower but more durable traditional safe.

Other considerations

The type of gun, what you will store around it and how many guns you want to keep in the safe are only part of the equation. Alternative input methods word-image-6073 Fingerprint readers can be reliable, but even the most reliable fingerprint sensor may not be able to read your finger if your skin is very dry or sticky with sweat. And some people just have no luck with fingerprint readers! If so, consider other options. The keyboard is almost as fast as a biometric reader if you are used to typing in the code. All biometric safes come with spare keys, but these are not always easy to use. Sometimes the keyhole is hidden by the logo plate, which must be unscrewed to insert the key. You can speed up this process by unscrewing the panel and leaving it in place, but this increases the chances of someone breaking into your trunk. Battery life word-image-6074 All biometric safes work on electricity. Most of them run on batteries. Some take months, some take years. Did you forget to change the batteries? If this is the case, avoid safes with a short lifespan! Consider one of the safes that last for years, or one of the safes that can be plugged into an electrical outlet. Mounting points Almost all gun safes have pre-drilled holes so you can permanently attach the safe to the floor or wall. It is advisable to use heavy bolts or a flexible lock for this. However, the latter option is easily destroyed. But if you want to travel with the suitcase, the attachment points are more of an obstacle than an advantage. Resistance against burglary word-image-6075 Weapon safes can be nearly impenetrable, burglar proof or forged as if they were made of butter. Personally, I don’t pay as much attention to this quality as some people do, and here’s why: If the burglar is in your room and has physical access to the gun safe, you have already lost the gun safe, unless it is a multi-hundred pound monster. Even if you have the safe bolted to the wall, a burglar who wants the contents of the safe can pry the safe off the wall with a crowbar. You can then take the safe home with you and open it at any time. At other times, a modest capacity is sufficient for a gun safe. If the safe prevents children from accessing your weapons, it serves its purpose. Keep your most important documents and the rest of your firearms collection in a safe that is sturdy and heavy enough to prevent a burglar from taking it out of your home.

Top brands of biometric weapon safes


word-image-6076 When I first saw that Barska sold gun safes, I had to step back and take a breath. To me, Barska is an optics company. The company basically describes itself on its website as a global sports optics company. And that’s what the company is known for. Barska riflescopes, reflex sights, binoculars and rifle scopes are available at sporting goods stores in the United States and around the world. The company’s offerings are a bit more expensive than budget, but generally good enough that most people are satisfied with their products. It appears that Barska safes are also very good! The company seems to have discovered a niche that was missing in the world of fire safes: biometric gun safes. That’s why they took over this niche. Barska also offers many small safes and even biometric door locks. None of these safes stand out, but the most reliable safes can command a significant premium, so a good safe will suffice for most people. Most Barska products seem to fit into this theme. The company offers nothing advanced or cheap to be unreliable. And if all you need is a good biometric gun that won’t infringe on your bank account, the Barska is a good choice.


word-image-6077 Vaultek is a company that focuses on one thing and does it well. It is one thing to combine reliable engineering with modern, intelligent technology to produce the most advanced safes on the market. The VT20i (and its biometric version, the VT20) was Vaultek’s first product. It took months to perfect this design before the VT20i was launched. The safe became an instant bestseller and to this day is the best gun safe, regularly winning Best Of competitions. Vaultek has many other good safes, but they are all more advanced than the competition. Some come with Wi-Fi, most with Bluetooth, and some even float when you put them in the water! This is not what other safe manufacturers claim. Vaultek is not primarily a manufacturer of sports equipment. Although most of their safes show guns in their promotional materials, Vaultek safes are perfect for anyone who wants a safe that can be opened in moments, but won’t open if someone else tries to break in.


word-image-6078 Verifi is a secure company owned by Zvetco and should not be confused with Verifi, a payment processing company. Unlike most other companies that sell gun safes, Verifi did not arrive at this product through gun safes, but through biometrics. Zvetco is a biometrics company that has helped develop some of the best practices in fingerprint sensor design. The Verifi range is proof of this. All their safes are equipped with fingerprint readers. You can also purchase individual fingerprint sensors from Verifi, as well as smart card readers. Some of these products are used by banks, Fortune 500 companies and government agencies. When it comes to reliable fingerprint readers, Verifi is the leader in the field. If you want a handgun safe that can compete with the safes trusted by the world’s largest financial companies, buy the Verifi Smart.Safe.


word-image-6079 How do biometric gun safes work? Biometric gun safes are electronic safes. But instead of entering a PIN, the capacitive fingerprint sensor displays a unique pattern of bumps and dimples that make up your fingerprint. If the received image matches the image stored in the electronics, the safe is unlocked. Depending on the trunk, this is done by moving the bolts or loosening the bolt. Are biometric safes secure? Biometric safes require electricity to operate the fingerprint reader. It usually runs on batteries, although some models can be plugged into an electrical outlet. Does that mean you’re locked in a vault when the battery dies? No. All biometric safes have spare keys that can be used to unlock the safe in the event of an electronic failure. This makes biometric safes very secure. If you can’t open it with your fingerprint, you can unlock the safe manually. Note that capacitive sensors require a certain amount of moisture on the skin to read a fingerprint properly. Too much or too little moisture will prevent the reader from reading your fingerprint correctly. Some people have more problems than others. In addition, skin moisture can change with age, so biometric safes are generally more reliable for younger people.
