Re: Knife or Cleaver? S&W CK300 Bullseye

It's for splitting sternums and pelvises when you're dressing a deer or elk. That's why you'll find them in game dressing sets. A hatchet works well too, but some people find it easier to carry a small cleaver. A really sharp hunting knife made of good steel works too, but not as well.

Re: Living Off The Land: Delusions and Misconceptions

Very true, but what percentage of your state's population were pocket camping the same weekends that you were? If 99% of the people dropped dead of some plague I like Average Joe's chances living off the land, but if some other calamity occurred that did not involve rapidly right sizing the populati...

Re: Knockdown Power

Seen that one before. Not entirely scientific, but it does bring up some interesting points. Why does .32 ACP have a 10% higher stop rate than 44 Mag? Why is there an average 50% stop rate across all handgun calibers, .32, .380, and .22 beating out the magnums and creeping up on rifle/shotgun range...

I think Manhatans and Old Fasioneds would gag a goat. Irish Coffee is always good. A Fancy Whisky has citrus liquore in it (Grand Marn or Tripplesec), and maybe some Angostura if you're a masochist. I like it in Coke, but my favorite is a Dark & Stormy with a good single barrel. Basically a real, st...

Re: New 1911 grips anyone?

Have you thought about trying one with Ray Skin? Sort of the opposite direction in terms of strength and durability. Honestly, I'm a buyer if you can replicate your excellent work in ray, and it comes from the critter pre-stippled with all those little boney projections in it. I would guess it would...

Those are really beautiful. You have talent. Will they last? Will they hold up under sustained use? Is there anything on them to strengthen them?

Re: Knockdown Power

"Knock Down Power", or down range energy in Ft/Lbs on a ballistic table for that matter, does NOT mean literal "knock you down", as in slow, blunt force impact moving a body in the opposite direction. The period of the impact is as important as velocity and weight. Try moving into a punch rather tha...

Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms rela

I had an old, mistreated, and defaced Winchester, lever action, Model 1892, Trapper, in .32. At some point in the past it was allowed to rust, and there was pitting on it, as well as the wood being severely damaged. The bore was actually ok. It may have even been safe to cycle a round, but I would n...

Re: A wilderness bug out is likely to get you killed

I think there's a happy medium. My cabin is no doomsday castle, but it's stocked for an extended stay, there is a lot of wooded, hilly land around it, and it sits on a peninsula on a 12 acre lake, making it easy to defend. People who've been to it several times get lost and I have to go meet them on...

Not that I needed another (or intended to buy it), but when a great deal comes along you have to pull the trigger...so to speak. This is a shooter grade. The factory grips are perfect, so I took them off and put these Colt rosewood burls on it. I took it to the range and sand bagged it this morning,...
