Re: Experiences with automatic knives?

I'll agree with the other posters and say that I've never seen an otf that actually got used, and didn't turn into a rattletrap. I've been carrying Spyderco knives for years and they get the zip tie wave treatment. I've owned OTF and "switchblades", and there's simply NOTHING faster ( ETA: than the ...

Re: Remembering Names

Honestly, for me, most of the people I meet don't even register as discreet individuals. It's just "rock n roll guy #65" or "blue haired chick #73" or "boring old fuddy duddy at the bus stop". These days, unless someone really strikes me as an individual, or I have to deal with them regularly, I ca...

Re: Remembering Names

So i travel a LOT for work, and regularly will meet 50-100 new people in a day, most of whom I will likely never see again after that day. For those I'll see again, I'll often get their number (networking) and as i enter it into my phone, I'll ask to take their picture, then add it to the contact. T...

Very likely that you are right, but material science is coming a long way rather quickly, so I'm hopeful. I'm sure it won't be long before someone does side by side comparison between the two.

OK, so I've been waiting for this ever since they came out with the AR version. I'll be curious to see if these can hold up to the standard set by the famous circle 10s.

Kel-Tec RFB gifted to me... thoughts?

OK so a friend of mine recently decided not to hold on to his firearms any longer. Technically, um just holding his stuff for a while, but it's not looking like he'll be wanting them back. It came with an Eotech and a vfg. This thing is sick! One of the extractors is broken, but I know KT will make ...

Re: Knot tyers?

So I most commonly use a running bowline to take the weight off of a choker hitch made in wire rope, that is made up with a shackle around an I beam. I tie it around the steel, then lower it below another shackle that has the weight, then let go of the knot to cinch it down, capturing the lower shac...

Re: Remington 870 is constantly jamming

When the chamber of my Mossberg is really dirty, I have a similar problem. I think it's a similar concept to pennying a door, in that the friction on the sides of the chamber effectively lock the brass in. A good cleaning may clear that up, presuming it wasn't cleaned after you bought it.

Re: Pistol safe/lockbox for a vehicle - Had a pistol stolen

Abloy makes a huge variety of lock types. I may have mistakenly linked to padlocks, but they also have almost any standard lock, made with their exclusive key profiles and unique mechanical locking mechanism. You can replace your home door locks, desk locks, filing cabinet, padlocks, etc; but what I...

Re: Pistol safe/lockbox for a vehicle - Had a pistol stolen

Pick up one of the small Gun Vaults, with just the basic mechanical lock, then buy an inexpensive, yet high quality replacement for the lock assembly itself here:
