Gun Blog Variety Podcast #157 - Protests, Pepin & Plasma

Sun 20 August 2017 by Erin Palette from Lurking Rhythmically

There’s a saying among campers, hikers and other survival buffs: “Cotton Kills”. This is because cotton loves to absorb moisture but hates to let go of it. In cold weather, if you get your cotton clothes sweaty, or you fall into water, you will likely become hypothermic if you ...
