    you would think my wife would get tired of asking that....

    Last night I participated in an even called goruck constellation. It was an urban survival course covering everything from first aid to evade and escape and how to escape if captured. There was orienteering, fire starting and a lot of info on where to find supplies you might need. The culmination of the night was to build make shift gas masks out of materials laying around. In this case, a pop bottle, duck tape, and normal dust masks. Then.......

    They pepper sprayed us to see if we did a good job.

    Well my face was awesomely protected, but the rest of my body is on fire.

    If this event comes near you, I would highly recommend it.....[​IMG]

    Lol yeah im in the same boat paying for what!!!! Sounds pretty fun if you ask me. I was an OC (pepper spray) and handcuff instructor. I probably been sprayed close too 100 times. You do get used to it but it is mostly a mental thing. I always use to tell guys that even though its a tool at our disposal it is it is just a horrible thing to put someone through.
