Re: Looking for reviews of compact binoculars?

I guess i should have been more specific. I'm replacing a $20 pair of camo, rubber coated, tasco 8x20's. That's sat in my hiking bag for maybe 30 years. And still work fine. But fog up easy. I also have a Pentax 8x40. That i used doing surveillance work. Back when i still worked myself in the field....

Could you be a little more specific about their specific or main use?
Hunting out to a few hundred yards. Bugging out, inch.

Re: Downloadable gun manufacturing files.

I'm no lawyer. And may be way off base. But it seems there is also case law at play here I am not a lawyer either, but I think that to be case law, it has to be adjudicated. a settlement doesn't establish case law. I didn't mean this settlement was case law. But that if they'd decided any other way...

I'm no expert but I could see AR-15 lowers being made this way. Besides a goofy single shot, has anyone designed a modern 3-d printed firearm?
In the videos he shows AR's he's built with the machine.

Re: Downloadable gun manufacturing files.

I don't think that's what he has in mind at all. It doesn't matter if the laws are unenforceable. The law against murder, rape and theft are unenforceable and can only be applied after the fact. I think what he attempted to prove and have upheld by the judicial branch ruling is that home building a...

Re: Downloadable gun manufacturing files.

IMHO, educating the public about legal home builds is more likely to turn around and bite the build community on the ass than benefit it. The further out of the public eye such things are kept, the better. All educating the public is going to do is bring it to the attention of those working to rest...

Re: Can someone explain this style of blade to me?

Ya. I will never pay $475 for a knife. I'm sorry. I don't care how much money I had. That's highway robbery. It's not made out of unobtainium. Or cut with space lasers. The other thread I started about this in Bug Out Gear has some very interesting videos on how to make a similar blade out of a mach...

Re: Downloadable gun manufacturing files.

it is in the short term. the long term depends on who shoots what, and the spin of it all. I can see it also leading to the outlawing of home made firearms. there are already some pushing for it. We can't quietly sit by while our home building rights are taken away. We (meaning myself. I manufactur...

Uh. Ya. For just a little more you can get micarta handles. The Ontario is $25. For about $20 more you get micarta in the machete by ESEE below. It's 17" blade is longer than the first vid. But shorter than the second - where that Alone guy does his thing. (What a smart guy. I remember that season. ...

Love those videos. I'm wondering if theres any advantage or disadvantage to one of starting with one of these: https://themachetestore.com/products/gavilan-machete-12-inch/ It has a saw back, bottle opener, and twine cutter(?). Or there's this one that looks a bit thicker. But no measurement given. ...

There I fixed the vid. Really interesting thought process this guy puts into sharpening a machete so that it will both chop, cut, strike ferro rod, crush stuff open and peel bark and make tinder. That's a lot to ask of one blade. But he appears to do it. I really want to pick up a machete now and do...

Ah. It's a draw knife and a hatchet of sorts. I get it now. For bushcraft. You can shop down the poles and skin them with one blade. I guess. lol. I'd hate to have to sharpen it!

Really nice, economical sheath maker on etsy.

I found this guy on Etsy. He makes these sheaths for $35 for any knife you have. I really like the blade retention and the looks of it. If he doesn't have your knife. You can send him yours and he'll custom make you one for the same $35. https://www.etsy.com/listing/492167181/buck-knife-fixed-blade-...
