How To Survive A Volcano

The first rule is “Don’t jump in.” Go ahead and laugh it off. Ha ha very original. Now that you’ve got that out of your system consider the following.

While cinematic moments abound with people leaping into live volcanoes the gruesome truth is you’d probably need the assistance of a helicopter to do it, because before you even got close to the caldera either your boots would melt making walking impossible or you’d get suffocated by boring old poison gas.

Yesterday we had a special event at our local gun club. In fact it was very secretive when they announced it about two weeks ago. They gave a few obvious hints for people who were paying attention. Required equipment: pistol, rifle, and shotgun as well as the necessary holsters, mag pouches and shell carriers for reloading on-the-go.
