Re: Dealing with a knife threat

Well here we talk about security and I have some experience in crisis management so I just peck my keyboard when the dots join up and have an opinion to share, If we listen to the so called street smart Metropolitan Police on this primal fear arousing subject, how to avert the knife offense we are l...

Re: Pocket pistols make my peepee hurt

Concealment is for the strict purpose of not having a gun taken away from you before it is used! This is true for both illegally possessed weapons and legally obtained 'readiness' purposed weapons. The axiom must be reiterated regardless of modern interpretations that gets bounced about. Catchy doub...

Re: Dealing with a knife threat

Good luck grabbing a knife wielding attacker with two hands after you spit in his eye. Well you see Regular Guy if it gets hairy enough that I am spitting like a dehydrated camel at the offender, luck really is no longer on my side at that point I will do as Gunny Instructor Hartman insists, "Gouge...

Re: Dealing with a knife threat

Spitting in the offenders eye Are you kidding? :? If you spit at someone you all but guarantee a fight. The whole point is to avoid a fight, especially one with knives. If someone is pointing a knife at my face, torso, pelvis I predict much more than a fight is about to happen. If the attacker is b...

Re: Dealing with a knife threat

Maybe I'm misunderstanding. You advocate breaking contact, but breaking contact got you stabbed Correct. And taking evasive action when a gun is swung about by a belligerent may still end up with a ricochet wound. While taking a Jet Li stand with your hand in their pocket caused your attackers to r...

Re: Where to buy flintlocks?

it just came back from the gunsmith who did test fire it so that tells me the barrel should be clean of anything. I can take the .32 caliber cleaning brush and attach it to a .22 rod and it will go all the way down easily. Well I guess that means you will have an accurate rifle, take some fine emer...

Re: Where to buy flintlocks?

I'm stuck now on mine, got everything but the powder. But the .32 caliber ramrod I bought goes in a few inches then gets stuck, its like the barrel gets narrower. So I have a call into the gunsmith to see what he shot, maybe it is smaller then .32 caliber. 1) Have you cleaned the barrel to flush al...
