Ticks

 

Disclaimer: I am not a Doctor, I am a Doc. consult with your medical care provider for any issues you may have. The following is for informational purposes only and does not constitute my giving medical advice.

Those of us who like to hike or camp or do outdoor activates in the woods or tall grass are at risk for tick bites. Most of the time these bites are harmless and may or may not cause a small amount of pain

Limit your digital footprint

From the moment you leave your house you are tracked, somebody somewhere is watching you.

That is not a paranoid tidbit written by some tinfoil hat wearing shut in although I wish it was. Unfortunately in today’s world somebody is watching and tracking your every movement, be it a Government employee, a corporation, a Law Enforcement agency or an automated computer system that harvests data about your actions and compiles them into reports to be sold in bulk to the highest bidder so you can be served targeted advertisements or in the case of the shadier side of the business, your information can be sold to leverage attacks against you like identity theft and stalking.

Hiperfire Triggers

Ask any competition shooter what the key upgrades for accuracy are and undoubtedly you will receive the answer: quality handload, trigger and barrel in some order or another. Personally my belief is that the most noticeable difference received from any firearm upgrade comes from a consistent, quality trigger. The trigger market is very competitive, offering many very good options. Personally at this point I have tried the majority. One resounding theme I have found to hold true is that you get what you pay for, and if you want a trigger worth owning expect to pay a minimum of $175.

How not to be a Heat Casualty

As we warm up from our deep freeze this winter and the weather gets warmer it is important that when doing outdoor activity like shooting, hiking, camping or what have you that you are vigilant in checking yourself and whoever you are with for signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion. If left unchecked you can develop heat stroke which is a life threatening condition.

Combat Mindset

Combat mindset

 

As we go through our day to day lives, some people seem to have better luck than others. We all know the guy that has been beat up at the bar a few times, or mugged. We also all know the guy that it seems nothing bad ever happens around. Although there is an element of luck involved the truth is that one most likely spends a large amount of time in a white mindset, while the other probably regularly alternates between yellow and orange. Below is a breakdown of the stages of combat mindset and how to notice which one you are in.
