Re: Please Help Me Buy a Flashlight!

Any of the major brands should have something that fills your needs...Surefire, Streamlight, Fenix, Inova, 4Sevens, Olight...etc. Check over at Candlepower Forums if you really want the gory details on any light that strikes your fancy. Maglights just don't cut it anymore for serious work....too big...

I'll be married 20 years this year, for the last 20+ years my BIL has deep fried a turkey for Thanksgiving, he's very good at it, they're always good! Well, he recently bought a Char-Broil Big Easy oil-less fryer and has fell in love with it! He said he will NEVER deep fry a turkey again! This thin...

Maybe for modern steels but there are still plenty of 1095 knives out there that work just fine with an Arkansas stone.

Re: Old Forum Members: Where Are They These Days?

Been here since 2006 actually but due to a long hospital stay, a dead computer and life in general my current join date is 2011. I speak with Dr. Lecter at least once a week and through him I have checked on Dr. Snubnose, Chad Los Banos and a few other folks. It is sad that folks who we form friends...

Re: New 30-30 in the house!! ;)

In my experience.... Marlin- (especially the pre-Remington, JM Marlin models) the gold standard of lever actions. Rugged, aesthetically pleasing, accurate, good variety of calibers and configurations for your hunting needs. Savage- often overlooked but is honestly the pinnacle of lever action develo...

Re: Beards

I retired from the Marine Corps in 1995 and quit shaving the same day. I've only been clean shaven twice since then and they were both for major surgeries. I do clean up and shape the bottom about once a month and trim the 'stache once a week. It has been "belly button" long a few times but I prefer...

Re: Springfield Saint Victor.

Springfield attempted to make a deal with the politicians in Illinois to make themselves exempt from the laws being passed controlling and constricting firearms sales. It was in late 2016, early 2017. They were willing to sell out other manufacturers and firearms dealers to carve out a safe spot for...

Re: Horrible: Store broken into and Spyderco knives, etc stolen.

Perhaps one remedy would be to have store display windows made from some form of laminated transparent polymer/shatterproof glass composite that is break proof and have everything well-anchored into solid steel? I remember bars on the windows of all the stores in Baltimore, MD when I used to live t...

Re: Horrible: Store broken into and Spyderco knives, etc stolen.

I know right where that store is and use to be a constant customer until I moved further south. Was a great place to pick up a bargain or 2 amongst the loads of stuff they had. I'd heard that the neighborhood had went downhill somewhat.

Hope they catch the clown and throw the book at them.
