Hiding Christmas presents in the old shed in your mama's back yard is a terrific idea. Until the old swollen-up door and its pile-of-crap-on-a-park-bench handle lock get stuck and you cannot access the gifts for giving. Honestly, at this point I don't think I have any choice but to bust it down. And honestly, I'm kind of looking forward to it.
The breach isn't a huge job. Not Tech Torch caliber anyway. But I was thinking I'll probably need more than my foot, and that thinking led me to the Hot Shot Tactical titanium breaching bar you see here. It's around 9" long with a 4.25" blade, and wrapped in 550 paracord for grip. Nice and compact and effective, but still requiring some muscle to get the job done so I'll come out the other side of it feeling like a Burly Man. What would be even better is if my mama's neighbor's fat cat Willard were trapped inside the shed. Then I'd get to save a helpless animal (even though Willard is an a-hole) during my display of brute force and be a hero as well.
In addition to broke-ass shed doors, the titanium breaching tool can pry open other broke-ass interior doors, plus drawers, windows, and cabinets.
