Re: Interested in getting my PPL. Any pilots out there?

I really appreciate the advice! It’s cool that you are float rated, you can see I just mentioned I’m interested in that in my response to Pinetreebbs. I’ve been drooling over Kitfoxes with floats for the past few days haha. I’ve watched a few videos from the Air Safety Institute that detail various...

Re: Interested in getting my PPL. Any pilots out there?

GPL, PPL, and then CPL and a float rating here. I owned a Cherokee 140 for 10 years which was a lot of fun but just turned into a financial headache in the end. The cost of maintenance and fuel went way up, and I ended up losing interest in making a career out of it so I sold it in 2014 and haven't ...

Re: Small knife saves Canadian man from grizzly bear

Where I used to work in a wetlands area in North Missouri we have Mountain Lions back in the region. I saw first evidence of them all the way back to 1999. One of the neighbors seen one on the same road our lodge was at 2:00 am one night on her way home from work back around 2005. Since then I've h...

Re: Riddle me this!

Oooh I love these. My favourite one is the Monty Hall problem: Suppose you're on a game show, and you're given the choice of three doors: Behind one door is a car; behind the others, goats. You pick a door, say No. 1, and the host, who knows what's behind the doors, opens another door, say No. 3, wh...

Re: Manix 2 - replacing scales...

I think your G10 scales are meant for a regular Manix with liners. That's probably why I can't figure it out... thanks! So the translucent scales are not replaceable? The handle is riveted together. I don't own a lightweight but it would seem that you cannot take it apart without drilling the rivets.

Re: Why all the Manix love?

I recently had mine somehow open part way in my jean pocket. When I reached down to grab the knife I ended up with a nasty slice in my thumb. I don't know how it happened but I will be extra careful going forward. Bugger. Do you remember how the knife was orientated in your pocket? Blade facing dow...

Re: a painful lesson relearned *update*

As a Canadian who sometimes orders stuff from our neighbours to the south, I prefer USPS over any of the couriers.

Re: A month with the Para 3 lightweight!!

I quite like mine, despite the slippery feel of the handle. It gets extra slippery with dry hands.

Call them.
Their toll-free number doesn't work in my area and I am not sure I want the long distance charges I'll incur by calling the other number.

Replacement Screws

Has anyone been able to get replacement screws from Spyderco? I emailed customer service a few weeks ago with a screw request for my PM2 and I haven't heard anything since, even after a follow-up email.

Re: Bolt Action Rifles: Are they the most accurate as some claim?

I don't do serious target shooting. I hunt and shoot for fun. Since I have to be sitting at a bench on a calm day with a sandbag to even tell the difference most of the time it is a moot point to me. I struggle to understand why folks need a rifle that shoots so much more accurately than their own ...

Re: Bolt Action Rifles: Are they the most accurate as some claim?

Bolt Action and Breech Loading Firearms were made experimentally and as prototypes even back into the 1700s and early to middle 1800s but were not adopted in mass by soldiers until the 1860s period and later. Why do you all think this is? Why such a long time for such effective things to replace th...

Para 3 question

Hey everyone,

I just got my first s110v knife, a Para 3. The knife looks perfect, except for this spot in the finger choil that is a bit rough. I am just curious if this is normal. Thanks!

Re: Curiosity....What handgun do you carry????

Since I am in Canada I don't have many options for handgun carry. However, when I am in the woods where bear/wolf/cougar defense may be required I carry a 12g pump-action shotgun with a 13" barrel.
