Re: Full size 9mm Recommendations

Ok, don't know if anyone recommended it yet (cause I won't lie, I didn't read EVERY previous post) but my vote for a high-capacity full-sized 9mm goes to the classic Beretta 92FS. And when I say high capacity, I'm talking 20 rounds. I've found these 20-round mags online for like $20.00. Look great w...

Re: What is the best camping hatchet?

UPDATE: I just recieved the Kershaw Camp Ax and also the sharpner I ordered. FIRST IMPRESSION: I think I'm going to like the little Kershaw. It actually came SHARP, and I like the grip angle and feel. It's also LIGHT, which is what I wanted to pack lightly in my 2-day hiking pack. The Estwing is a g...

Re: What is the best camping hatchet?

Ok......just wanted to post an updated about what I finally decided on and why. I CHOOSE: 1.) Kershaw Camp Ax (small hatchet really). This thing is light, has a good coating, good ergonomics, and packs well. I'm not a lumberjack, and am only expecting some light camping, so I feel anything else at t...

Re: What is the best camping hatchet?

Ok, I think I'll clarify a little bit here: It's true, I've never really camped hard before, but grew up in rural Northeast and grew up using not only hatches of all sizes, but Axes as well. I've cut down and chopped up whole tree with an Axe, and have never hit myself or had a head fly off. Growing...

Re: What is the best camping hatchet?

Ok, I also wanted to pass on that I found this "Camp Ax" (more of a Jr. Hatchet) from Kershaw.......it's about 12" long, weighs 1.0 lbs, and is only $26.00. Seen some good reviews on it. I'm thinking of staying away from anything but a "one-piece" design; I'm seeing too many horror stores of the hea...

Re: What is the best camping hatchet?

I have, and love, an Estwing 16" camper's axe. It actually measures closer to 19". If you want something smaller, the leather-handled Estwing hatchet might be better for you. Made of one piece of tool steel, Estwings just don't break unless you're doing something so poorly that you shouldn't be all...

Re: What is the best camping hatchet?

For camping I'd say you don't need a hatchet. I've usually found that 30-45 minutes worth of gathering and breaking will give me enough fuel for a fire for a couple of nights. Anything that requires you to hack at it to use it just isn't worth the effort for me. See, I was thinking that, and hence ...

Oh yes, I see that that hatchet is the "Rolls Royce" of the hatchet world, and it should be for $180.00!!!!! :shock: http://www.smkw.com/large/knife/GB475.jpg http://www.greenwood-direct.co.uk/graphics/library/475%20Carving%20615.jpg I think the price not exceed $100.00??? - The Delta Force

Hello ZS Forum! Recently I've been putting together (2) nice packs. (1) for camping with my young son, and (1) for Bug-out-Bag. They are stored in the same location.

Re: Completed: Beretta 92FS project

I like what you did with it. Keep us posted with how it shoots. It looks like those grips extend past what the stock grips do. Is this to cover the stock magazine base plate? Very nice nonetheless. Yes, the grips extend down below the frame, and cover a normal magazine base plate. I'm using 20-roun...

Re: Beretta 92fs vs springfield xdm 9mm

I'd say the Beretta, but I am a bit prejudiced! If you want an "accurate" Beretta, then you've got to get an Elite II or else "do-it-yourself" like I did on this one. https://public.bay.livefilestore.com/y1ppMwJ50PfY0to1y5rikEv4bfPvvPGJlYqGkQqAmWsScrxIn6gcFO8syu7nRjUBjhLyF5If2FzcpkFxig1aLbBaw/4.JPG?...

Re: Wife wants a pistol caliber carbine

Did the original poster pick up a carbine yet? I saw that they live in New York, and found it ironic (or sad?) that no one mentioned the Just Right Carbine, which is made in New York. This is a AR-styled carbine with it's own design features but yet still retains a lot of the compatability with afte...

However, if I am looking to just shoot Zombie silhouette's and go through a brick of cheap Federal bulk ammo, than there is one weapon I turn to: The Kel-Tec PLR-22. It has more substantial mass than yo...

Hard boiled eggs; I've got to keep that one in mind!!

VTAC Targets are the bomb-shizzle. 6 bullseyes on one side, silhouette with anatomy and realistic-sized and placed A-zones on the other. Best training target on the market.
