During the second hour of the show we’ll consider the differences between training and practice and just what those are.   We’ll again go to the SOTG mailbag for a question about being armed in a marine environment.  Paul takes some time to discuss rust-resistant firearms and also what you can do to keep your guns rust free.

      You should “train like you’re going to fight”. That means, if you plan on wearing body armor when the SHTF, you should practice “shoot, move, and communicate” with your body armor on. It does add weight and bulk which you should be used to when the time comes.
