    Great episode and great blog. Stumbled on this site and podcast the other day while doing a long solo drive. Its really good to hear sane advice about prepping in an Urban environment. Been living in DC for the last nine years and I can attest all the extra hurdles urban life puts in the way of emergency prep. My question for this episode (if you check the old podcast) is do you have a good recommendation for a tactical light that will fit a Walther P22? I bought the P22 so my wife (and me too) can get used to shooting handguns, etc. Really like the gun, but this episode made me think about getting a light for it. Thanks in advance.

      Thanks for the good words, DC Matt.

      To answer your light question, checkout the Streamlight TLR series. If your Walther has a rail on it I think the lights from that line will fit. But OpticsPlannet.com could answer for sure and is a pretty decent place to shop (This is based on person exeriance. They are not associated with ITRH in any way).
