You guys are much more patient. I simply refuse to engage with a generation me kid talking about toxic masculinity. There are always better things to do.

Re: Ladies On The Edge

Okay, MAJOR disagreement with some opinions here. But first, on-topic : I don't think it's surprising that more women are interested in knives. Outside of a few brands, I feel like the marketing and distribution of knives, be they pocket- or fixed, makes it easier for female customers to be interes...

Re: Knife Block

Didn't know knife blocks were still a thing. Gave mine up years ago and went to magnetic strips like the restaurants around here use. (Health department doesn't like knife blocks due to bacterial growth.)

Yours is beautiful and well laid out. Congratulations.

Self medicating with either prescription or illicit drugs is a very bad idea. Live fast and die young I guess.

Re: What's Cookin'?

Going to be smoking peppers this weekend to have for the winter. My jalapenos, habaneros, anaheims, serranos and whatever else that my buddy drags over from his garden. Smoked then chopped or ground and put in Mason jars and sealed up.

Re: I have a new girl friend and my wife is fine

Last 4 phones have been Samsung's....Note 3, Note 4, 8+ and now a Note 9. No issues whatsoever. Note 9 takes better pictures than my daughter's iPhone X. I stay a model or 2 behind the newest ones to let the bugs get worked out. And yes, they all listen. Even after you "disable" all of the apps snoo...

Re: What do you think of the 6mm ARC?

As anyone who shoots targets or is a long range shooter knows, the higher the ballistic coefficient the higher the retained energy and velocity, and flatter the the trajectory. That is what the ARC does and why others cannot. It was designed for heavy for caliber bullets that are longer with extrem...

Re: Emerson knives??

Have owned several (20+) different models thru the years but currently only have one Emerson karambit left. They just never really caught hold with me...out-dated steel, poor edge geometry, uneven grinds...I just kept going back to Spyderco for my EDC needs. I don't buy customs so I can't speak to t...

Re: New S & W 629 PC

What would you guys recommend for a new (stock) revolver? Sounds like S&W may not be the most consistent. Is someone else better? The only revolver I own is a Ruger LCR (.357) and that one has been fine for me, but I've only put a couple hundred rounds of 38 and maybe 30 rounds of .357 through it. ...

Re: New S & W 629 PC

OldHoosier62, Colt used to make some great stuff back in the day. I was too young, but I know my dad loved the Pythons, and several others. I'm surprised to hear things have changed. They were once a great company but since the 80's they have steadily gone downhill and every time they are sold they...
