Re: Soon to be new parent *UPDATE* my daughter was born this morning

At 0040 this morning local time my bautiful daughter was born. The birth was short, mostly uneventful and without complications. Mom and daughter are still in the hospital, probably for at least 48h per standard procedure. Normally I would be staying there as well, put with Covid-19 there is a compl...

Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms related)

My Aliengear Holsters finally arrived. An OWB/paddle and an IWB. There's no legal carry here, so the IWB is mostly just for the novelty and dicking around on the range. The OWB might se some actual use. Because I want to move away from competition holsters and get a feel for working with carry holst...

Re: Handloading f*ckup

Thanks for the share, glad the weight change didn't bite you! I have to say I never weigh bullets unless the label fell off or something. Maybe I'm too trusting. No, you kinda expect the numbers on the box to be right. I'm glad too. As I said, 9mm is somewhat forgiving. But it still could have gone...

Handloading f*ckup

I'm gonna share my own safety screwup, so that other people may learn. TL;DR Always double check your components before loading a cartridge. I am by no means a professional handloader, but I've loaded and shot more pistol ammo than I care to count. Last time I bought bullets I ordered 10k of my favo...

Recommended: Gtgconsult - dry fire practice videos

Danish veteran and sports shooter Ebbe Wolff is releasing a bunch of videos on his Instagram page "Gtgconsult" focused around the basics of pistol shooting. I haven't met or trained with him myself, but some people I trust a lot have taken his classes and know him personally. The videos are short an...

Thanks for all your answers :) I will of course update as things progress, and any and all advice are very welcome. We were lucky enough to get a stroller and baby-holder-thing for the car (baby protector? I don't know) from friends whose kids just outgrew them. We were signed up for birth/parenting...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

So far, I feel that Sweden is handling the pandemic fairly well. Recommendations are for everyone 70+ to avoid social interactions entirely. For everyone to work from home if at all possible. Avoid all unnecessary travel. Stay at home if sick in any way. Gov will cover sick leave to help employers (...

Re: Australian Bush Fires

Sister in law has many friends in Australia. All safe so far, but this is a real mess.

I've been in a few wildfires (armed forces supporting fire department), not fun.

A massive STAY SAFE to all ppl fighting the fires and those trapped in its path.

Re: My new camping wood stove

Would you be willing to share the design?

I'd happily order one from the same guy, but I'm thinking shipping it halfway across the globe would be kinda cost-prohibitive.
