Day 3 , Guns and ammo

Jan Martin Berg took us to the shooting range today, training for a possible polar bear encounter. Hopefully this will never happen, but good to be on the safe side. This also making it possible for us to walk freely into the wild. The gun we used was an old german mauser from the second world war. We also practiced shooting with a signal gun. The theory is to scare off the bear with this first, and as a last resort using the rifle.

Theory first of course.

Exited artists, ready for action

A polar bear at a distance of 30 to 40 meters is a last resort distance Jan Martin tells us. Be quick to reload, polar bears are obviously fast runners.

Ready, aim, fire!
