    Interested in a great monthly newsletter about shooting? If you are, I highly recommend Dennis DeVault and Dean DeBow's newsletter. Each writes a short informational piece. Once you get on their list, monthly newsletters are sent as attachments to email messages.

    This month, Dean wrote a very interesting piece on remaining hydrated when shooting in hot weather. A key piece of information involved the need to avoid raising sodium levels while drinking things to remain hydrated.

    This is important, he explained, because salt without prolonged exercise is not beneficial to shooters. Salt makes us retain water. Water swells our tissues, some of which are on our face. When this happens, our eyes align or actually, misalign with the ribs on our guns making the POIs change (or makes us feel like something is wrong).

    Many of us eat too much salt. We don't need more when drinking a can or bottle of whatever to keep hydrated while shooting. He continued listing available drinks that have vitamins B and C, some with +Lutein or potassium but with virtually no sodium. There are also drinks that have no sugar for us diabetics.

    Dennis, this month wrote an interesting piece about stock pitch and the effect it has on POI and our shooting in general. (He and I will resolve the difference in the way we define positive and negative pitch this winter.)

    Hopefully, Dennis or Dean will post to this thread and explain how to get on their emailing list. (I knew once but have forgotten.)

Again thank you and we will take all the names we can. You can also view past newsletters on our web site at www.devaultind.com
