So someone jacked my dvd player a yr ago so i told myself i wasnt going to get a new HU til i got an alarm so i did. Viper 5901 with two way remote. Someone just tried to come back and call my bluff thinking my alarm was a fake. . . i was out there in 5 seconds and now they know my alarm is REAL.

note now sitting on my cener console: DO REALIZE I OWN 3 GUNS! GO **** YOURSELF (with 5 9mm hollowpoints sitting on it)

make sure you get good sensors too the glass breaking sensor is a must

might want to look into your local laws regarding "popping a couple into the air" to "scare them off."

those rounds could come down anywhere and kill someone, and you can do time even if you dont hurt anyone.

Ya you will feel it. There is a reason the cops dont use them anymore. to be honest you can take hits of those and keep coming. especially the methheads where im from you would have to hit them in the head or heart. If you are that good of a shot under pressure be my guest.. Ill keep my .45 and just blow off a leg

and last time I checked in most states you cant shoot someone breaking into your vehicle. I have a conceled license good for 38 states and even if you are int he vehicle if they are not threatening your life you have to just give them the vehicle...

I sure hope most are a good shot under pressure, especially if you have a concealed permit. If not, what is really the point of having your permit, ya know? And I will definitely agree with you there about getting in trouble. Most, if not all states will lay down a heavier punishment for pulling it out and shooting it in the air, vs. shooting the suspect. IF you pull it, you better pull it to shoot.

true. You really have to read read read to be sure when yo use it. Lots of the lines are blurry. and you would be surprised. The class I took they had to shoot one shot out of a .22 hand gun and hit a 2' by 2' box from about 6' away. They give permits to anyone. you have to go out yourself and practice. and I can hit a coke can from 30 yards but theres no telling if I was under pressure. hard to imagine. Hope I never have to. I want to hear the story on here where someone catches the guy hanging out the window and just beats the dog **** out of them then calls the cops.. lol.. **** thieves always get away

the pellets coming down won't kill anything...i've had lead rain on me plenty of times out bird hunting...a rifle or pistol bullet coming down is a diffrent story....

Yessir. Lots of people get their permits, without even reading into it. But a lot of these people also just keep their guns at home. I plan to get mine within the next six months, and plan to do nothing but read and reread every little bit of information I can gather before doing so.

ya. really need to have your mind made up what you are going to do given any situation so you know in advance and just hope it never comes. but most of what I have read you can only use it if they have a weapon or directly threaten your life or you can use it to stop a crime of rape, kidnapping etc.. and then of course protecting your home.. but really thats about it..

I am PRETTY sure, not 100%, but pretty sure that you can't use your pistol to stop another crime. I mean, in hindsight, you may be let go because of your actions as trying to be a hero, but I am pretty sure the law says you can not use it to stop another crime. But again, I don't have my permit yet, so I am not 100% sure. Detroit is pretty rough as well. Downtown and Midtown are nothing but beautiful, but going to the inner city on the eastside, shiz is like a whole nother country.

The thing is adrenaline & emotions come into play if and when the situation ever does come.. so the outcome is really unpredictable even if you have thought it out as to what you will do.

i really would not want to do that. if i was going to shoot, i will shoot to kill. cops ask what happen, i would just say "officer, this person was trying to attack me, i was in fear of my life, and i did what i did to protect myself, my family...etc" they look at the dead guy, cant ask him anything because that lifeless body is on the floor. but if you just wound a robber, or anyone fearing your life, they can come back and take you to civil court and sue you for disability charges and whatnot. it happens a lot. so next time you gonna shoot someone, shoot to kill. even cops will tell you that to save yourself the trouble. BUT, if the person tries to come up with any of your equipment in your vehicle, in your driveway (some states prohibit shooting robbers on the driveway), a decision goes into place, a $500 deductable from the insurance, or a $5000 or more charge for lawers fees, court fees and all that while trying to clear your name in court. something ppl have to think about. even the deceased family can sue the shooter(in most cases, homeowners). ***** but thats how our ****** system works

It's a pretty gray area. It was explained to me like this, never shoot someone in the back...you will go to Jail. If someone is breaking into your car, you have every right to confront them, if there is any indication of aggression from the perp, or you "feel" at all intimidated, you can shoot them, in the front, at close proximity. Basically, grab them, hit them or whatever, make sure they hit, push, grab you in the scuffle, then shoot them in self defense......!

thats scary. in ohio its a 8 hour class and 4 hours on the range. we went through around 150 rounds each. and the standards for ohio are going to be going up again in the next year or two.

its sad that some states dont actually take the time to teach people.

also in ohio laws were just passed/are being passed that make it legal to use your weapon to defend yourself and your property. as well as being allowed to carry your weapon into places that have class d liquor licenses as long as you are not consuming any alcohol.

Search Google (http://www.google.com) for DEI 513T



What add ons should I have installed to my Viper 5901?

There are a few, but the most important are battery back ups.. both battery (DEI 520T or larger) & siren (DEI 515R). I would highly recommend multiple sirens along with the proper sensors to detect for your specific needs (at least a good shock & pin switches for all entry points).

I have a 82 malibu sedan so can i get sensors put on all four doors to let me know if any of them are open only the two front doors have added power locks. also if you were to up grade the siren that comes with the 5901 what would you recommend? The siren that comes with alarm seams to be puny to me not load enough where can i purchase one from?

Yes. Usually you just connect to your existing door switches.. either positive or negative ground. There are separate pin switches that are usually used for hood & trunk.


Also.. if you were to upgrade the siren that comes with the 5901 what would you recommend? The siren that comes with alarm seems to be puny to me.. not loud enough. Where can I purchase one from?

I use 30w home security alarm sirens. Sometimes you have to cut with a hacksaw some of the plastic flare to fit. *Use the warble tone

Anything those hit could cause you a lawsuit or jail time.
