Suture Wound Video

There may come a time when access to emergency medical help is not available.  Everyone should know how to suture (stitch) up a wound.  Download and watch this video (requires flash player) for a good primer on how to do just that.  Keep it on your thumbdrive along with the other survival books for future reference.

Also of note, this weekend I was able to go shooting on some private land.  I was able to do some good drills that are generally prohibted at most shooting ranges.  Rifle shooting while running, transitioning to pistol, shotgunning at distance, putting inert rounds in firearms to simulate malfunctions...  I got the Advance Kalashnikov training video from Suarez Internation and was able to run many of those drills.

Finished up by shooting some skeet.  Overall very fun day.  My .22 is so accurate it amazes me.  I can consistantly get 1" groups at 100 yards.  Also, I removed the scope off of my AK.  It shoots much better without it-faster acquisition, lighter, and it is also very accurate with a cold barrel- once it warms up the grouping spreads.

I've also decided that I want to get an AirSoft gun to practice with.

Good move. I removed the scope from my rifle many years ago. I found it difficult to pick up and stay on target when something is moving fast toward you!
