Re: What was your first pistol?

The first pistol I owned was a Ruger Security Six in .357. I traded my cousin a TV for it and kept it for a year or so. I pawned it when I was real desperate for cash and didn't get it out in time. I got paid on a Friday and went to pick it up but I was 3 days late. They sold it already :-(. On my 2...

Re: the Defensive Shotgun; How we make it work--MilCopp Blog

I agree on all points save one.... Ammo selection. I have seen animals and people shot with 00 buck and still have plenty of fight left in them. I have heard of many such cases also. I have never even heard of anyone hit with a slug COM putting up a struggle and never heard of a person surviving su...

Re: Awkard moments or negative responses while using your ED

Just bought an '87 Chevy R10 from a guy on Craigslist. I brought along my trusty wife as back up. She's checkin' out the truck and opens the passenger side door. As it opens we see smoke and I smell the distinct smell of shorted wire. I'm thinking "Oh shit, the wiring harness is FUBAR and it's going...

Re: PVC Sheath for Machete

Check out your local Surplus store. I found a Mil-surp Machete sheath. It's made out of plastic and is marked "1991 Machete". My 18" machete fits in it perfectly. My only gripe was the M1910 wire hanger had little use until I bought an ALICE pack for a BOB :-)

First up I'm jealous, you are doing a hard core 26 mile Bushwhacking adventure. Not a lot of people can do that. Just some suggestions. Don't bring multiple knives and heavy junk. You have a gun, I would pick a small to mid-sized "working knife", a Machete if you think you need it for bushwhacking ...

Re: Cold Steel Tomahawk Modification

I used my Trailhawk last year to butcher a deer during hunting season. I left the blood on it overnight and the blood stained the handle. I sanded the handle down and painted it with a little olive drab green and flat black "camo". I sanded the epoxy/lacquer off of the head. The cord wrap has been t...

Re: Shopping mall bought SS Katana hacked to peices !!

If my first post was snarky, I apologize. In all fairness, though, the thread title lead me to believe I would see someone destroying a shitty sword with some non-shitty bladed implement. So I was feeling betrayed. I took it all in fun. I do think a quality carbon blade probably chop through the so...

I've considered my pets in a total SHTF scenario, and the outlook is grim. I have a pit bull, and two house cats at the moment, but no birds- ours died.

Airsoft and ninja gear from the same dealer? That was totally unexpected. Most of that stuff isn't my cup of tea but to each their own.
