0125 - FF LA Contest and Hotel Robbery Shooting

/
Man, what a weekend! We got hit with a pretty decent storm Thursday night through Friday which creates a load of extra work for me and gets me behind in my game. Add to that the fact that I had family come in to town for a family birthday and Friday's Podcast just had to wait! Now that we have a show up, check out the great performance of a hotel clerk in this shootout. There are some things we will talk about that could have gone better as well!

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.

As far as the threats we face in society one of the most dangerous and chaotic that I see is the threat of civil unrest. The events taking place in Egypt may seem like they are half a world away, but the reality is much more close to home.
