    I enjoyed the show. I live in a restricted space dwelling when it comes to prepping. I appreciated your tips and recommendations and also look forward to one of your guest to discuss an effective means of prepping in apartment/townhomes setting. Can you discuss in future show alternative means to access water source such as water pipe and means to suction it out with a suction generator pump and how much power. Distilling water options from lets say Bayou as a last result. Thanks. Keep up the great work!

    I cringed at your answer to “What home self-defense options are best for the legally blind?” as it was off base.
    First, you need to understand what legal blindness is.

    Defintion… Legal blindness occurs when a person has central visual acuity (vision that allows a person to see straight ahead of them) of 20/200 or less in his or her better eye with correction.

    With 20/200 visual acuity, a person can see at 20 feet, what a you and I with 20/20 vision see at 200 feet. The DETAIL (facial expression, object in hand, etc) that you and I see at 20 feet, this legally blind person will see at 2 feet or so. Any malfunctions which you and I easily see at arm’s length are not easy for a visually challenged person to pick up on at that same distance.

    definition continued… In determining legal blindness, visual field (the part of a person’s vision that enables them to see what is happening to the side of them) is also considered. A visual field of 20 degrees or less is considered to be legally blind.

    Once you understand the characteristics of their eyesight, then you can delve into the universal set of questions to help determine which firearm is best for them.
