SOTG 592 - Parental Guidance Suggested

(Photo Source: MPAA)

What does “parental guidance” mean to the Student of the Gun listener? Why have we chosen, on our own, to give SOTG Radio a “PG” rating? Professor Paul will explain.

During our Fighting Fitness segment from SWAT Fuel, Jarrad will reinforce the importance of hydration and drinking the right amount of water. Also, can a person drink too much water?

Also, during this week’s Brownell’s Bullet Points, Paul poses an important question about guns and ammunition. Listen louder my friends.

Topics Covered During This Episode:

  • Fighting Fitness brought to you by SWAT Fuel: Drink water, hydration is important. No, ice in your drink doesn’t count (unless the drink is water). Yes, too much water is possible.
  • Professor Paul relates a personal experience with hyponatremia.
  • SOTG is rated “PG” Parental Guidance is suggested.
    • There was a time in America, before the baby boomers started to make the rules, that adults actually “parented” their children.  
    • Instead we now parent with policies and govt instituted safety standards and guidelines.
  • Brownells Bullet Points: Survival Guns: Ring Guns/Training Replicas: If you aren’t buying what you think you need or desire now, you are missing out.

From www.studentofthegun.com/articles:

Continuing our series on wilderness survival, no one ever plans to get lost or to be injured and stranded in the woods. Just as we don’t wear our seat belt because we “plan” to be in a crash, and we don’t have a fire extinguisher in our kitchen because we “plan” to have a fire. We don’t carry survival gear because we are expecting an emergency, we carry it because we realize that we live in an imperfect world and sometimes emergencies happen. We cannot sterilize the world, but we can indeed prepare ourselves to deal with unforeseen crises.

One of the biggest killers of people who get lost or stranded is dehydration. Humans need water. There is no getting around it. When your body starts to dehydrate it will not only affect you physically, but mentally. Your brain does not like to be short on water. Dehydration leads to a clouded and confused mind. You start making poor decisions, and your situation goes from bad to worse and then potentially to fatal.

Find Water

If you are lost in the woods of North America, finding water is doable. Rivers, streams, creeks, lakes, and ponds abound in the green forests. In rocky areas, you will often find shallow pools of water in depressions or “rock bowls”. Remember, water flows DOWNHILL, look for water at the bottom.  Damp, muddy soil can be scooped into a T-shirt and wrung out. (Yes, it’s nasty, but so is dying of dehydration). Snow can be collected in a cloth sack/pouch and slowly melted into a container.
