SurvivalBlog presents another edition of The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods— a collection of news bits and pieces that are relevant to the modern survivalist and prepper from “JWR”. Today, we focus on stress inoculation gun training.
Stress Inoculation Gun Training
I spotted this training video, over at Full30.com: Stress Inoculation Training. JWR”s Comments: I can’t over-emphasize the importance of gun training that involves plenty of physical exertion. That is realistic training. As soon as you have the basic mechanics and fundamentals down, then you shouId add stress to your training drills–both time constraints and physical exertion. Get trained to the point that you are ready to attend team tactics training, such as that offered by Max Velocity. That will be your “Finishing School.”
I can recall as a 12-year old, proudly showing my father a paper target with an unusually tight group that I had deliberately shot with a .22 pump action, at 30 yards. He said, “That looks great, Son. Now, do 20 sit-ups and 10 push-ups an then right away shoot me another ten-shot group.” The results were predictable. I’ve never forgotten that important lesson.
I highly recommend attending competitive shooting matches. The stress of competition is only a fraction of what is felt in combat, but at least it gives you a good idea of how poorly you might shoot on a two-way range! The old saying is: “Your best day in a gunfight will be worse than your worst day at the range.”

Toxic Air Findings
Reader Henry K. sent this from Zero Hedge: Toxic Air Kills 100,000 Americans Per Year, Costs Economy Billions, Study Finds. JWR’s Comment: This is just one more reason to move to a lightly-populated region! But don’tlive down-wind of a major farm that uses herbicides and pesticides. Here is a brief quote:
“Air pollution is poisoning Americans: A new study links air pollution spewed from industrial factories, motor vehicles, and farmlands to approximately 107,000 premature deaths each year.
The report, published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, said the economic toll of air pollution costs taxpayers $866 billion per year.”
