    In part due to this and in part due to the manufacturer's name (Ruth Lee), our Rescue dummy is called David Lee Ruth.

  6. question The Lifespan of Carabiners?

    Petzl says metal gear is good for lifetime if it passes inspection.
  7. Where are they now??

    No kidding!
  8. Best Topo app for Android?

    Big fan of Locus maps here. Lots of available maps out there. Sometimes you have to do a bit of conversion work. You can d/l all sorts of online stuff (GE etc) for use later. Make sure you run the Locus maps tweak app to get access to extra sources. Only thing that really bothers me is that it is a multi stage process to mark a waypoint.
  9. Yet another shooting

    According to a couple sources I just checked via a quick Google, Americans actual own ~3 times more guns per capita than Canadians. 31/100 vs 89/100. Switzerland is ~25-46/100 - military rifles kept at home included. Not sure why the range in that figure. In my mind it would be interesting to know the numbers when you start counting handguns. I suspect the difference would be much more dramatic. In Switzerland the guns are kept at home, but only 2000 specialist militia members are allowed to keep military issued ammunition at home. The rest have to go get their bullets from an armoury when the time comes... I don't know what Switzerland's ammo control laws are.
