Re: Has the Coronavirus affected your daily life?

I have been seeing people lately in the stores shopping with masks and gloves on. So I just dunno. Might be a good idea or not yet? :confused: Just went to the store and a work meeting. I’m finally used to wearing a mask when I’m out. I really don’t think I need to filter, but it sure keeps me from...

Re: Has the Coronavirus affected your daily life?

I’ve been going shopping about one day a week lately. I go right around opening time (there are a couple good stores here that open at 7:00 AM). There aren’t many people there yet, and the stores are probably as clean as they’ll ever be for the day. I wear vinyl gloves when I go shopping. I make it...

Re: Has the Coronavirus affected your daily life?

I actually have a friend who is "quarantining" his groceries. He goes shopping for his family, then leaves all the groceries in a special box in his garage for three days before he unloads them, so that if they picked up any virus at the store, the virus dies off before he brings them in the house....

Re: Has the Coronavirus affected your daily life?

I thought this thread was about our daily life. I get that some here have preconditions and at-risk dependents. That is a terrible worry I wish on no one. But advice springing from such worry changes this thread’s intent and puts it on boil. Other threads on this virus boiled and got turned off. Ba...

Re: Next Sprint Run? Old School Alloys are BEST!

I'm thinking maybe a Native Chief with mammoth tooth scales and a copper/arsenic alloy blade. Thoughts? I thought my EDC was retro.

Re: Please educate me on Flashlights

I’ve never handled a SF so cannot comment. All I can say is that - for me - after 3 decades of daily inspections of very dark places, LEDs then 18650 cells were the game changers. I can understand why integral charging is increasingly popular, now, but stupidly complex UI’s and constant drain switc...

Re: Please educate me on Flashlights

I still like Surefire because I like to support "Made In The U.S.A." companies. Also Surefire has dependability like few others I've used over the years. I had a couple of Fenix models at one time but they just weren't as durable as Surefire. Also Surefire's customer service is very similar to Spyd...

Re: Recommend TV Shows to binge watch while you Shelter-in-Place

Oddly enough I've not been watching TV much at all during this Virus Shutdown here in our area. I've kind of been glued to the internet and have been volunteering for my church to help old confined people that can't get out. There are 3 websites that have really good recent news on this Corona outb...

Re: Please educate me on Flashlights

Aren’t Surefire shock resistant for weapon mounting? I do like the P60 format. It seems much less popular now, but the Lego-ability of the format giving me the option of top drawer LED drop-ins and batteries in budget but robust bodies has been an absolute winner for me. Having said that, my latest...

Re: Please educate me on Flashlights

Most people aren't even buying Benchmade or Spyderco level knives. Go look at the best selling pocket knives on Amazon to see what people are buying. Lots of people are buying Fenix and Olight flashlights, which are kind of the Kizer and WE knives of flashlights. I also know of several cops who car...

Re: Please educate me on Flashlights

The CRK of flashlights is HDS Systems. Surefire and Streamlight are the Benchmade and Spyderco of flashlights. The CRK thing was more about cost than the knives... Over the standard that most people would get. But yeah the HDS are expensive for sure, more so than the Surefire, and they aren't cheap...

Depends on what you are looking for. Like most things you get what you pay for. You can go with what the professionals use.... Surefire is the main one. Surefire and Streamlight are the ones that I have seen MOST professionals use, ones they actually have on their duty belts. So like I said it depen...
