    I got 8.

    I didn't know about dogs or sharks.....

    I think that's a really bad quiz. Not enough background is given, and then there's 3 answers that all could be correct given slight variations in the situation.

    For instance, if you have a chance, there are many times where trying to disarm a gunman could be a MUCH better option than complying. People often willingly position themselves, walk for miles, or otherwise help to prepare for their own execution, by trying to gain the gunmans favor and not cause a problem, even passing up disarming oppertunities. The gunman knows this, too.
     
  3. I got 9. Seeings as we don't have any sharks in Lake Michigan, that shouldn't be a problem. And I never fly so thats another thing.

    It's not the best quiz. In some situation I'd do something they didn't even mention.

    Definitely not the best, especially on the gunman situations. They forgot to account for concealed carry permit holder who are also armed, and know how to handle such situations very differently, but I realized they were referring to unarmed, untrained individuals so, got 17/17.

    10/17 .... I'm barely alive.

    The one about not rationing the water in the desert is bull though.

    .....Nah.

    You took their CC class to get the permit.... you're not an expert in anything.

    Now, for people who know how to handle such situations, as you say, many gunmen CAN be disarmed with little danger.

    Anyway, my point is that you carry your balls in a holster. And a wimpy pocket holster, at that.

    As for rationing water, you really don't want to ration hard. The reason being that you'll benefit less from water if you're already badly dehydrated, becomming disoriented, overheated, headache, etc. It well be too little too late. You shouldn't just drink it super fast, go as slow as you reasonably can, but also do drink it. But I didn't like those questions because they made assumptions about people knowing where you are, searching in time, etc. Maybe I'm in the desert and NOBODY knows where I am, I'd be dead in 2 days if not found.... I'd drink my water slowly but not too slowly, determine a direction, and start moving, even if it was just to try to find a cactus to drink or some shade. Not sitting there while everyone scratches their head, better to die trying than twiddling your thumbs.

    12/17 then again I don't fly any more. I suppose if I did I could have done better. I also missed one shark question but not likely to need that unless I go to the zoo and something goes terribly wrong..... Also missed a hostage question and one of the desert questions about water. I would have rationed. I guess I would be dead for the most part.

    What worked for me with large trained attack dogs, I don't recommend with wolf hybridds. Their reflexes are fast!

    10/17 I always want to disarm the gunman, because a gunman disarmed is no longer a gunman. He's just a man. And you can bring down a man by simply kicking him in the balls.
