    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I agree with the above post. Just like I tell my students during gun disarm techniques-I dont have to be faster than a bullet- just the asshole with the gun. Having a firearm and retaining it are two radically different things. Some people once the gun is removed-that is it.Kind of like a one trick pony. Even with a strong martial backround-one must maintain a certain level of cardiovascular conditioning to be optimal at the end goal- survive.

    Spoiler:
    A wild n00b appears. Shh, don't scare it. I am hungry


    So, n00b of Krav Maga origin and badass gun disarm extraordinaire, what are you talking about? Because your post is unclear.

    Did you mean this post?
    Homeboy could just run right out of a disaster situation. Things are probably better 100 miles away.
    I hope so, otherwise....it came across to me like

    Well said, so true.

    To make this post semi-on-topic, I imagine a guy like Anton who can endure pain and fatigue at a level most of us can't imagine has a better than average chance at survival.
    I have clients who do 100 mile off road running races.
    The local course has well over 3000ft of elevation change per lap, 5 laps with real food 3x per lap.
    They actually have pit stops where they hose you off, feed you and help you change.
    Yes, pizza is served at one of the stops.
    A client of mine uses that as a mantra while running, "6 more miles to pizza, 6 more miles to pizza... ...5 more miles to pizza..."
    Only about 20% of the field, that has to qualify first, even finishes.
    Salt management is key.
    My client finished the last one in 35 hours, fucking nuts.
    Ironman Kona only took her -11 hrs.
    She's not super skinny and can do many, many pushups.
    She can also shoot, so i'm guessing she'll do fine come shtf.
