I’d like to throw a shout out to a fellow blogger, and community member, who did a great writeup on waterproofing a pack. I’ve got a bit of experience here, but given his background I think it’s best to just hear it from his mouth.

Every once and while, you see, hear, or read something that you just stop and can’t help but nod along with. That happened to me recently while listening to the Fieldcraft Survival podcast. Mike and Kurt put out a lot of great content, but this one definitely stuck with me.
The conversation starter series is an opportunity for members of our community to talk about a specific question or problem. We have readers and commenters from a wide variety of background.

I’ve touched on the magic of angular measurements before. Typically, you’re going to run into one of two flavors: minutes of angle or milliradians.

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I have a strong distaste for internet and gun store lore. That’s especially true if that lore isn’t much good for anything other than burning a hole in your pocket.
Practicing rifle positions will take you far. You’ll be able to get in and out of them quickly, build up a stable shooting platform, and even be an effective marksman. But getting good with your natural point of aim will make you even better.
This is a rant, and I’m going to take heat for it. Gun people are some serious fanboys at times. I’m focusing my rant here on Glock because they’re low hanging fruit. Well, that and their well-known tagline: “Perfection.”
Most training courses offered to civilians focus on quickly and accurately running a carbine.
This course is all about small unit tactics, and it’s amazing.
