ETA; while they have their legs up, jam a tube up their pooper and administer fluids through that.

Re: Bear and feral pigs whilst running

The efficacy of bear spray simply can't be questioned. It freaking works. Studies show it, real life shows it. Firearms vs. Big bears is hit or miss (literally) There isn't a very large kill zone on a charging bear, so you're a bit SOL IMO. I agree with the consensus, in FL, the main concern is not ...

Re: Slide release vs overhand rack WITH A HUGE SLIDE RELEASE

Try and cultivate and take advantage of your body's natural tendencies. Don't try and create them for yourself. Sometimes you don't have that luxury. Running a Walther PPK/S as a BUG, and it does not have a slide release. If you find yourself in this position, my advice is to train the same way wit...

Re: cauterization, viable technique?

Very good points. I should have been more specific with my tourniquet guidelines. He is correct, removal ASAP. I should have said: "Tourniquets have been known to be on for more than 7 hours without damage" The quickclot warning was from my most recent training, as of July. I haven't experienced it ...

Re: Slide release vs overhand rack WITH A HUGE SLIDE RELEASE

So.... What handguns have a slide release that = huge? I bought the GF a Baby Eagle .45, and whenever she would reload, her thumb would accidentally bump the slide release. I would call the slide release on that gun huge and sensitive. I have since trained her not to do this, but it took a little b...

Re: Sugar water IV

I don't see a valid purpose for the sugar. Saline solutions can help in some instances of pure fluid loss, but if too many red cells are lost the system cannot stay oxygenated, hence the reason for a blood transfusion. Glucose and Dextrose solutions are primarily administered intravenously for malnu...

Re: cauterization, viable technique?

At any level of training below surgeon: Never. You will only compound the injury and make it more prone to infection. I'm assuming this is in reference to gunshot level wounds, and the best thing is still to pack the wound, apply pressure,and elevate. Then evac to get more highly trained help. If it...

Re: BullPup Unlimited 870 Conversion

I don't know about these. I have had bad luck with these after market bullpup stocks on rifles. I have tried the one for the mini-14 and the much newer version for the SKS. Neither was all that great, and they felt like cheap plastic. How well has this one held up? Have you used it for very long? I...

Re: Marking criminals in the PAW

I have to agree with the removal of branding and the wanting to know their location asap. To me, branding is a cowardly punishment. Either learn to handle your justice, let them atone for their misgivings, or let them go their way. If I did encounter more brandings I would definitely set up a "refug...

Re: Marking criminals in the PAW

I think varying degrees of punishment need to exist in a PAW. I foresee it coming back down to "eye for an eye" type of thing. Murderers get put down, Thieves get forced labor to repay debts, Rapists get neutered. Unless guilt cannot be proven, then options for leaving town should exist. Again, remo...

Re: Pocket and compact prying tool over full size prying too

My theory on a small prybar is to use it for the sort of jobs that I don't want to use my knife on. Yep I think that is were the spread of the little prybars came from, people realizing that your knife is not the tool to pry with. Something to consider with the small pry bars, you can gain the mech...
