Re: Reflections on Self Defense and Martial Arts classes

I hate to say it, but the layman (read "average juror") won't be able to tell that your armbar was more gentle than a choke, especially if Drunky McJagermeister smacks his head on the ground while you apply it. You have to assume that any scrap you get in is a possible murder rap, for him or for you...

Re: A New How To: Get Killed in a Fire Fight.

How hard is "Lay down behind something and kill everything that isn't us"?
Hell, my ten year old knows how to take cover, lay down cover fire, and do 3-5 second rushes. Somebody get these yahoos a playstation and some Modern Warfare games.

Re: Reflections on Self Defense and Martial Arts classes

I think I mentioned on here about the dude I slammed in a parking lot a while back. TheLastOne's post really rings a bell with me because of that. Basically, I went with what I know, (wrestling, in this case) and halfway through realized that there was a good chance that the dude I was wrestling wit...

Re: Alice Pack on a 3XL Guy

Did the foam help appreciably with rigidity? I would think the difference would be small compared to the weight added. the tubular section of PVC is already well designed for rigidity and bending resistance, and adding material to the middle is adding it to the least useful area. Especially when the...

Re: DeWalt Sidestrike Chisel as camping knife/tool?

My problem with chisel ground knives, for batoning or chopping, is that the line of force and the cutting edge never line up, and you end up with a curving cut. You also can only chop at something from one angle.
When I was doing knife making I experimented with them, and never could stand it.

Re: Reflections on Self Defense and Martial Arts classes

What sort of training did you have in mind, and how short of a stick? I think there comes a point where a short baton really becomes more of a long kubaton, and you have to shift gears. The increased tip speed of a longer stick is what really makes it an effective weapon, IMHO. I think you might be ...

Re: Slingshot Channel Firearms Excursion

They're pretty harsh on judging what constitutes rifling. A couple scratches won't do it. It needs to CLEARLY be effective rifling. I would go with four lands/grooves. I don't think two would be enough.
A rifling machine for a barrel that small should be easily within Joerg's capability.

Re: The importance of sharpening supplies in everyday life.

I've got a bunch of stuff. One of those 4-sided diamond blocks from Harbor Freight works pretty darn good. However, in the woods, I've been known to rub one good sized pebble on another until I got a reasonably flat spot, then use that. It works. If you rub that pebble on concrete it works even bett...
