0278 - Three Reasons I'll Be Going to 'See Act of Valor' Again

/
If you like action movies and at the same time despise what Hollywood does with them you are in for a treat with 'Act of Valor.' A great story with amazing action delivered by the men and women that are taking it to the mattress with dirtbags around the world. A great movie. I don't know what the last film is that I saw in a theater but by next week the last two films I will have seen will both be 'Act of Valor.'

0275 - The App That MUST be on your Smart Phone

/
I have a good number of apps that I use on my phone and I must say I have become a bit of an app snob. Today we talk about the Pocket First Aid and CPR App from the American Heart Assoc. It is a good app. Check it out.

0268 - Interview with Zach of Helix Arms

/
Today we have an interview that literally had me laughing out loud both during the recording and again throughout the editing. I hope you find the conversation I had with Zach of Helix Arms as much as we did. We do talk about some serious topics, and no, you shouldn't load your shot shells with rock salt.

0251 - Make Note of AED Locations

/
I can't speak for anyone else and thier life experiences, but without a doubt I have used my life saving skills more often and with greater consequence than my life taking skills. Just like our tactical training, we need to make sure that our medical training is up to date. AED's are becoming more and more common every day and they are life saving tools. it is estimated that 50% of people that die from cardiac arrest could be saved with a speedy application of an AED. Check out today's show to find out about what you need to know.

0137 - Impressions of a First Time Shooter

/
One of the common themes of my life has been teaching. No matter what I get involved in I end up teaching it. I have taught lots of fun stuff throughout my life but today I got to teach a common topic for me to someone I NEVER thought I would have a chance to teach. My sister asked me to take her shooting. I was thrilled and jumped at the chance.

0102 - Got a Blow Out Kit Yet?

/
I am a huge fan of First Aid Gear. When people ask me why I carry a gun I explain to them that because despite the efficiency of the 911 system and the professionalism of our law enforcement officers, a police response is most likely 3 or minutes away if I am involved in a violent encounter. That is assuming I can get to my phone to call immediately. Again as efficient as that is, it is probably about 2 minutes 50 seconds too late. In that 3 minutes I have the ability to save my own life, or the lives of others. Now this answer is a very well thought out logical answer based on why any firefighter or paramedic would tell you to get trained in first aid. There is a gap in time between when you call for help and when help actually arrives and in that time if you are trained in first aid you can give life saving aid.
