    How to take a bullet.

    I went shopping with Mrs. Miggy at our local BJ Wholsale store and I found again a book I saw about three weeks ago.
    The book is The Complete Worse Case Scenario Survival Handbook and the first time I opened it, I landed on a chapter titled "How to Take a Bullet"
    Now, I did not read anything else from the book but I have to admit it rubbed me the wrong way. IMHO it seems to convey the message that getting shot is OK and almost painless. Again it is just my opinion and I might be wrong.
    I had my camera so I took pictures of the book and "offending" chapter.
    The pics are big on purpose so you can read them. Here are the links

    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    Having been shot Ill say the book is all wrong . My advise is to run randomly screaming like the little girl who won the prom queen . It may distract them and make them miss . Being shot hurts , Dont do it . Having been shot i am now more than glad to shoot you if you look like your going to try and shoot me again . But hey i am glad such experts are out there making money with wisdom such as this book lol .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    One of the officers I ride with told me that in the event of gun fire from an unknown direction, I will have to keep up with his dust as I will see how fast he can do a single flying leap over a car for cover. So if i've got to take one, i hope it would be in my hind end.

    I think that is for IF you have no other options and you are getting ready to take bullet. Still not going to do much, cause if you are stuck your stuck and you will likely take many more than just one.

    I do believe those books are in the entertainment/comedy section and not in the non-fiction section between DSM-V and Anatomy

    Sit down and face the shooter? Why would you just sit there and get shot? Fight to the death!

    I'm thinking the only time I am going to sit is: waiting behind cover to blast the BG's core in 2 mush.

    I have read most of that book and the subsequent one. Some of their scenarios are very funny.

    Just based on the cover of the book, showing someone hammerfisting an alligator's snout, this has to be for comic relief!

    Don't you follow the Rambo example and push the bullet out and then seal the wound with a smoldering stick?

    Interesting, set on your butt, pull your knees up, arms to the insides of the legs and cover your face.....going to be VERY difficult to return fire in that position!! Of course maybe they figure the load you will leave in your pants will help protect you.
    Sounds like this book was written for sheeply not someone who has any sense.

    I think they forgot to add.

    While sitting on ground. Start rocking back and forth, and all start talking to your invisible friend. Then the shooter will feel bad for you and get you help.

    I dunno, the sitting back trick makes it much easier to move your head foreward, and kiss yor a$% good bye!
