The AWG, to me, sounds like a pretty switched on idea. The US Army has given a small group of Tier 1 guys the resources to zip around...
Could an LEO or someone else in the know offer advice on what is a legal and practical form of self-defence in Canada?

Does anyone have a soft copy of one of these they can email me?
I used to have one that covered:

The one I had was pretty sweet, but I seem to have misplaced...

Came across this website on another forum. The Montana Meth Project is claiming a 45% decrease of Meth use in Montana since 2005. I think the cause and the methods worth drawing attention to here.

The reason I'm asking is that I was just at a dinner party...

Make a paste of 3 parts Baking Soda, 1 Part water. Apply it to affected skin and let it dry. I've had this method suggested to me by a few different people, and I'm giving it a try now. I'll report back with the results!!
