From Collenen F: hello! I hope you can help me – there are so many websites that suggest women’s guns for beginners/first time owners – even those that contradict each other! This much I know – a revolver is out. I am on disability and do not have much strength in my hand…
Answer: What I recommend doing is going to your local gun range and renting a few different guns to try. The key is to find the right gun for you and one that you can safely use. You mentioned you don’t want a revolver but if you don’t have much strength in your hands a semi-auto could be difficult to use when pulling back on the slide. However, when at the gun range I would rent both a revolver and semi-auto. As for semi-auto’s I would try a Glock 19 and see how it feels to you. This is a great beginner gun and it’s a sub-compact size.

From Brian M: I received my SurvFilter. It seems like a fine filter — if ONLY it had some instructions!!! I can’t figure out how I should “assemble” the pieces to operate it properly. Maybe I am dumb, but could you offer some help?
Answer: You take the filter and insert it into the quick connect end of the tube, which is the end opposite the end you drink from. Then you simply drink from the straw while the filter is in the water you are drinking from.
From John C: You mentioned the Glock 19. In comparison, what do you think about the Glock 23?
Answer: These guns are nearly identical to each other except the Glock 23 is a .40 caliber and the Glock 19 is a 9mm. Now, there has always been the fact that the .40 provides more stopping power, which is why many people prefer the 23 to the 19. With that being said, with the quality of ammo you can buy these days I’m completely confident carrying a 9mm defensive round and I trust that it will stop a threat. I know there are a lot of people who still say a .40 is better, but the Glock 19 has less recoil and is easier to shoot more accurately. I think both guns would be great to own and it’s important to find which one fits you best.

From Michael S: Imagine waking up tomorrow and North Korea has dropped as nuke on us what do you do.
Answer: When it comes to preparing for a nuclear attack you want to do many similar preparations as you would for other emergency situations. You want to stock up your food and water supply, including having a bug out bag or bags for your family. In the event of a nuclear bomb, you would want to stay inside your home in a basement or shelter with no windows and as little exposure to the outside as possible. Most importantly, you wouldn’t want to go outside until it was safe to do so, which could be an extended amount of time. In addition, you want to put as many barriers between you and the outside air as possible.
