I'd like to donate to your project, but don't have a paypal account. Do you have a Bitcoin address I can send to?

That's too bad, it's really easy and free to accept.

I came across your site from the XCR-M video review you did. I'm an expectant father and I appreciate what you're doing to raise safety consciousness in women.

Hi there, thanks for all the wonderful info you provide! I have three small children in the house and have been looking for a more secure way to store my pistol, like a hard case with a combo lock. Could you recommend something?
