How to Choose a Good Gun Safe for Your Home?

Most of the time we post about fitness but we are also avid believers in that everyone should have the right to their own gun. But if you have a gun then you should make sure it is secured properly. The last thing you want or need is your children getting hold of them. No matter how you look at it more deaths occur every year from family members using guns in there own homes, so stay safe!

Owning a gun is the first step to ensure your personal protection, but you will also need to secure your firearm to prevent its loss, theft or unauthorized usage. As a gun owner, it is important to be responsible in storing your gun in a safe way. The market abounds in many gun safes and it can be tough for you to understand which model you should choose for your own home. Here are some important things to consider while choosing a good home gun safe.

Good lock

Gun safes come mainly with any of 3 types of locks today. These include dial locking system, keypad locking system and biometric locking system. Dial locks are opened by entering a password combination. These need the least maintenance and can last for the longest time. However, these take more time to open up than keypad lock safes. Most of such locks do not lock automatically when the safe door is closed. Keypad locks are faster while biometric locks are the fastest. However, batteries need to be changed regularly.

Fire Protection

Make sure that the gun safe can withstand fire for a prolonged time period. It should be capable of sustaining against 1000+ degrees Fahrenheit for a minimum of 45 – 60 minutes, and not melt easily unlike a standard safe. Look for safes having an additional layer of sheetrock or ceramic panels for better fire protection.

Weight

Gun safes of larger size are hundreds of pounds in overall weight. If you live in a burglar-prone neighborhood, get a safe that is around 750 pounds. This would reduce the risks of the safe being stolen and moved easily by burglars or gun thieves. Choose safes that are designed to be screwed or bolted to the surface of the floor or wall, in order to ensure additional security.

Build strength

A big and heavy safe is no surety of the contents being properly protected. You should buy a gun safe with at least 10-gauge steel which can offer utmost protection and prevent most cutting or drilling attempts. Stay away from safes having sides built of light 12 – 14 gauge steel, as these can be cut with an axe.

Additional armor

A lot of high quality safes consist of relocker, steel plate or other additional armor that activates when attempts are made to drill their surfaces and makes it tougher for unauthorized people to access the contents of the safe.

Fitness Plans For Your Goals!

Are you in bad shape and want to get into shape, or are you in good shape but want to get better? If that is the case then this article has been created for you. These tips and tools will help you regardless of your level.

One of the best way to get into shape that we strongly recommend is doing home fitness. It is so much easier to do it from home and you have no real excuse not to do it! Basic exercises like running around the street or walking up and down stairs can be a great cardio boost.

Best of all at home you do not have to worry about strangers at the gym or public music being played as you can play your own favorite music! One of the our favorite pieces of equipment is an indoor spinning bike for home workouts. We highly recommend looking into one if you can afford it!

Now back to your goals in mind. You need to not think short term and think about the health you want to enjoy for the rest of your life. And a lot of this is not just about working out in fact most of the work is done with your diet. A lot of big overweight people may actually be healthier than super skinny people. It really depends on their nutrition. The image below is a fantastic but not always image of ‘you are what you eat.’

Another great workout can include plyometric workouts. That means resistance and pushing exercises only using your body weight. So these can include, squats, pull ups, lounges, crunches and many more. This way you don’t even need to buy any gym equipment and you can still feel the heat!

Remember when you feel the burn and your heart rate is elevated then you are likely in the zone! Try to stay in it and push it even harder (be mindful of your age though!). If you get sick or it is getting to hard for you then it may be time to take it easier and relax a bit.

Another great thing to do is to play some sports. If baseball is your thing then go for that. If soccer is your thing then for that. It doesn’t really matter, as long as you are outside and doing some cardio work. The competition however will likely make you push your limits without you realizing it, and this can have great benefits!

 

We hope these tips helped. They are very generic, but fitness usually always is unless you are specifically working with someone who has specific needs. We will try to cover new and specific posts in the future! Moreover Diets will be a bit part of it!

Simple Tips On How To Take Good Pictures For Instagram

For helping you to get wonderful pictures and get super popular with visitors on Instagram you need to feed people with good photos of you. The photos need to be so good that they make them say “wow”. However, you should understand how to take good pictures for Instagram before capturing the photos. It may be harder than you think.

The first thing that should you do is set up your hand phone or mobile. The things that you should prepare first are about the composition, editing, and lighting. Regarding about the camera of your phone, I think you should know about under-exposing the shot. It means that you can brighten the shot that you want by editing. But, before you edit this, you should, of course, set the camera on the best exposing shot so the over-exposure can be taken. Then, the photo posted on Instagram is not also created by using HDR camera.

Why can we do that?

Yes, because the HDR is hard to use. Moreover, if you are wrong in using it, your picture will look overdone and it seems unnatural.

Besides these things, when we talk about taking good pictures for Instagram, we also talk about the way of capturing the photos. The main key to creating the best photos for Instagram are based on the composition and the lighting of the image. The picture is said of having good composition when the viewer can be addressed to the subject of the shot.

The most important component that you can do first is turn on the grid. For getting successful composition, we can make the shot into 9 parts in the grid lines. Then, the next composition that is important is about using the palette.  We can consider what theme that we will use for the image. Usually, the theme of nature and landscape is using cool palette. It will help the image very well.

The next thing that is important in taking good pictures that you want for your Instagram page is setting up the lighting. Actually, lighting can show your feeling in the image. You have to remember that the bad picture you capture will generally have bad lighting also. So, you should consider the lighting A LOT. I believe that you have known about how to set up the lighting on your phone, but I just remind you again that natural lighting is the best choice.  If you want to take photos at dusk or dawn, you should plan the result in the light contrast or soft shadow.

Then, what are the best conditions in clouds or sunny? The best time for shooting is in cloudy conditions.

Just for the final tip to take pictures for Instagram, if you want to feed your instagram viewers with amazing photos, you can start with foodies’ photos. Just use wooden tables or marble slabs for putting your food or some food products, it will make your rather photogenic and is trending like hell at the moment. Increase your contrast and exposure composition then add just a little fade. And your picture will be awesome!

Lastly as we generally only talk about gym stuff here. If you are in the gym or taking a picture in front of a mirror for Instagram, make sure you turn the flash off and get a bit of distance from the camera. This way you will look a lot better!
