 Hi guys, in this podast I answer a few questions received, mostly about the December 2001 riots, self defense and post collapse money making.

I tried to upload it to itunes but its not that easy. If anyone knows how to do it or found a good tutorial I'll gladly upload it.
Take care!

Speaking of one's hands under stress.
My friend was in 5th SFG. He said after action sometimes he had to pry a weapon out of a dead man's hand, there is such a thing as a "death grip."

Fantastic point about the legal consequences of using a gun, even in self defense. We tend to have the knee-jerk John Wayne attitude of 'shoot now, ask questions later' instead of learning how to avoid placing oneself in a perilous situation in the first place. Cody Lundin visits this important point in his books. I will do everything to never run up against the corrupt legal system first before worrying about which is the best holster to use. There is too much pressure to find someone guilty instead of finding the truth. I recently turned in a lost wallet full of credit cards and was subjected to ridiculous questions by our local police. Can't imagine what would have happened if I turned in a lost gun.

Thanks again for the info.

I would note that some sections of the USA have very high homicide rates --even by Buenos Aires standards.

Here is a recent weekend report --including the case of a Marine (who had been in Iraq) being killed by a knife just because of a stray street quarrel.

Sometimes the stupid assh$#@s are dangerous. The economy has put a lot of stress on people and they can explode without warning.

ghpacific, I've read Cody Lundin and he probably has the worst, most dangerous advice regarding security and self-defense I've ever read. I honestly hope no one takes his advice because I know if they ever needed it's going to get someone killed.
About the legalities of self defense, you must know what's self defense and waht's legally not, but when the chips are down its not time to have second thougts. When you have to fight, fight to live, always! You can later explain yourself in front of a judge but as the saygin goes, its better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6. Know the law well, but dont ever doubt when fighing.
And the holster (and belt) is kind of an important piece of gear... :-)
