Re: Knife Sharpening

In the right hands a butcher's steel can return a knife to hair shaving sharp. It won't sharpen a dull knife, it just puts the edge back. If you don't know what you're doing it can dull a good edge pretty quickly. I've also known a couple of guys that could work magic with a stone. The fancy stuff i...

Re: Prison Break - Haiti - February 2021

There's a maximum security prison not far from where I grew up. I cleaned horse stalls for the guy who taught the welding and wood shop programs. Back in the day when there was an escape the farm wives would pack up a lunch, drive the car down to the end of the lane and leave the lunch and the keys ...

20 years ago you couldn't swing a dead cat without hitting someone that was building a FAL. Now, not so much. You might check out Falfiles.com. Lots of knowledge left on that board and still plenty of parts trading hands

Poison bait in hidden places works wonders. Tom cat is the brand I use.

OP mentioned dogs, so poison bait probably isn't a great idea. No matter how well you hide it, dogs and cats are still at risk of of catching a rodent trying to flee from its own burning, melting guts.

In my defense, I was using a gun I had zero experience with and that had probably last been sighted in when Teddy Roosevelt was still in office.
Well, that explains it. Roosevelt was damn near blind and a terrible shot. He left wounded game all over North America and Africa.

Re: Just a reminder not to forget

"Netflix worthy" isn't a very high bar. Sure they've got Stranger Things and The Umbrella Academy, but a lot of the rest is pretty lackluster. If they were aiming for "Disney+ worthy" I'd be a little more intimidated.

Newsies this evening showed the Portland shooter setting up his shot - he stepped off the sidewalk into a parking garage and waited for the victim to pass by, then stepped out behind him.
Situational awareness and checking your surroundings may have helped avoid this simple technique.

Interesting. A sustained ROF of six per minute compared to a well trained longbowman averaging 8-20 a minute. Although the time appears to mostly spent reloading. the two are not comparable, a well trained longbowman takes years of training, where as crossbow training takes a couple of minuets. a c...
