Home invasions seem to be posted on patch DAILY now a days. WTF is going on? There is no substitute to a firearm. If anyone has any questions or would like more information, someone to take them to the range, etc... please let me know. I would be happy to help my neighbors equip themselves to protect themselves.

WFM Alarm Company in Springfield, Pa. I highly recommend them. They are always available when you have questions or concerns. My alarm system has been a tremendous comfort. You can also have cameras placed around the outside of the house if you choose. Very good company with knowledgeable people. Number in phonebook. Worth peace of mind to know you have protection.
