“If ever I meet one of you Texas waddies who ain't drunk water from a hoofprint, I think I'll... I'll shake their hand or buy 'em a Daniel Webster cigar.” Rooster Cogburn, True Grit, 1969
They say you can live three days without water. Whether deployed, travelling or in an emergency survival situation, safe drinking water is key to survive and thrive. Consuming water saturated with microorganisms or industrial contaminants will simply make you sick and reduce your survival window. I have spent a good deal of time in SW and SE Asia working and travelling. On many trips or deployments, I would take a water filtration system and water purifying treatments. This was especially handy when in the Golden Triangle between Thailand and Burma, where there is ample water but little of it is consumable without filtration or treatment. These bulkier systems took up precious space within my loadout.That was until I stumbled upon the NDūR’s Pull Top Canteen.

As you know from previous blogs, I believe that targetry is an important point of tactical training. A poor target can create training scars. Canada Targets is home grown company that produces a number of high quality targets for tactical shooters. Canada Target also produces a line of 'zombie' targets, if that is your thing. They can be contacted through their website here

The PSO wants to deliver accurate defensive fire while extricating his principle.
