Re: Grohmann #3 Knife

That knife is so fucking canadian. :lol: How do you figure that? An in depth analysis of the steel's heat treatment and grain structure of the wood determines the knife is of canadian origin. :lol: Also the Roach Belly blade shape is very traditionally Canadian, going back AFAIK to French fur trapp...

Re: Cold Steel Viking Hand Axe

I have their large Viking axe and have been considering the hand axe as well. With a price point around $50, it's reasonably priced, and comparable to Museum Replicas' offerings. Regarding the large Viking axe (NOT the hand axe, but as a point of reference) came with a nice, thick head, nicely shape...

Re: looking for a reasonably priced ccw,have a few needs/des

Caliber should be .45acp for practicality and further cost effectiveness, unless I can be steered in a new direction . That said, get a 9mm. Ammo is half the price, modern top shelf 9 is just as effective for self defense, you get more rounds on board and faster follow up shots. These bits are impo...

That's gorgeous. I'm more of a snake hugger than a snake killer, but it looks like a good tool for the job. Incidentally, rattlesnakes aren't poisonous, they're venomous.

Nice build. Hopefully it will influence others to trim some weight from their 9lb AR's with all the "improvements" hanging off them :wink: It is influencing me.

Re: S&W M&P 15 Sport

A good trigger is the best bang for your buck in terms of improving your accuracy with an AR, and this one is not much more buck. I love it. A rear sight of some sort can also aid in an AR's accuracy. http://i1012.photobucket.com/albums/af242/boomslang45/smartypants-1.gif Ah. Yes. Fair point.

Re: S&W M&P 15 Sport

Doc I am about as gun illiterate as possible, I'd be afraid to try and assemble my whole kit. BCG's sure, but not a whole rifle. It is absurdly easy to assemble an AR-15 lower. I was a little intimidated too. Did my first a couple months ago, and my second a few weeks ago. Seriously easy. I haven't...

Re: Pistols as primary

I've been thinking for a while as I slowly build up my ammo stock pile. What I am thinking is that a pistol would be far superior to a rifle in a big out where you had to travel on foot for a long distance. Forgetting the pros to having a rifle I want to point out my thought process as far as going...

Trigger reset: Press, trap trigger to rear, cycle the action, reset trigger, decide whether to shoot again) I find it a little surprising that method was taught, due to the fact that it will cause a slam fire with some shotguns.

How much did it cost you? I paid $725, used, because it came with the factory side-folding stock (not Ram-Line aftermarket).

Re: Sighting in a .308 rifle...

As I understand it, and someone please correct me if I'm right, but 100 yards is approximately the apogee or whatever, the highest point on the ballistic arc of the .308 round. So, by zeroing at 100 yards, you know that you will always hold high, the question is just by how much. And the answer depe...

In general, I would say that a scoped, .308 bolt action is a great thing to add to one's armory. Bear in mind my current mindset towards firearms purchases is that they should enhance the spectrum of skills I'm able to learn, and serve as tools I can use once I master those skills. I don't mean to s...

I do tend to run full-power 180gr in it, but it's a problem with the 17L too with light 115gr. I think its just jerking the trigger and having big mitts with long fingers. G30S is about the right frame size, G23/G17 is a bit narrower and I'm sure I'm pushing with my finger as the trigger breaks. I ...
