Re: Best Edge Performance Steel between these choices?

Never say never, but I don’t think I’ll ever buy Maxamet. Too little reward for the effort.... It's expensive but you really should try it if you get the opportunity. I haven't been very impressed by S110V but Maxamet is a different story. I was fortunate that one of the members here picked me up a...

Re: Has the Coronavirus affected your daily life?

If you want people to leave you alone, all you have to do these days is cough loudly and start sniffling. Works great.

Re: Has the Coronavirus affected your daily life?

To combine your points (sort of), my wife has a PS90 (it used to be mine, until she shot it and decided she liked it) and can easily go through 500 rounds in an afternoon. 50 round magazines and 50 cent rounds on a firearm with basically zero recoil and super fast follow up means that you can chew t...

Re: Has the Coronavirus affected your daily life?

And I just WAY overpaid for a case of 9mm, but it’s only going up. A case? How much is a case? Sounds like enough to light up the town. Just hope you stay where ever you are. Myself I lean more towards my M-14. When referring to ammo quantity, a "case" generally refers to 1,000 rounds. I generally ...

How much did that Armalite set you back?

Those are nice looking rifles, for sure.

Hmmm, keep the manix g10 rex45 or replace with this?
I'd happily trade the Rex 45 for this one, personally. But if I can keep both, I will.

Re: SNK Manix 2 4V Coming....

I'm definitely into this one. Favorite platform, favorite steel...I'd buy multiples if I could. I'll be scrambling to get one, but I guess with everyone at home, they'll sell out super fast.

Re: Leatherman Raptor scissors - overpriced, or worth the price?

It's obvious (at least to me) that they were designed for the purpose of being carried either A) clipped to your clothing or B) to equipment you carry, allowing you to access them within seconds rather than having to dig them up first from inside a bag or so. We carry them inside drop leg emergency...

If I were you SpydieGrill, I would buy a Gen 5 Glock 17.
How do you like the Gen 5?

Do you think it's worth upgrading for someone who has an earlier generation 17?

Re: Home Protection and or CC

Second up would be a AR pistol or AR SBR, my next purchase will be a AR pistol in 300 Blackout just for HD! As far as handguns someone said you’d get a lot of suggestions, with guns that’ll always be true! There’s so many excellent pistols out there, my preference is ALWAYS Glock and HK, never regr...

Re: Leatherman Raptor scissors - overpriced, or worth the price?

I own them. They're definitely nice, but plain old shears would work too.

I bought them to test for our emergency kits at work, and eventually just went with (much cheaper) shears for the kits (rather than buy 6 of the Raptors).

Re: Home Protection and or CC

I'd call your local police department and ask what their officers carry. If you're ever involved in a self defense shooting, that lines up a great legal defense in case you're accused of excessive force. "I asked my local professionals what they would use to protect a citizen's home and person, and ...

Re: Has the Coronavirus affected your daily life?

I've definitely added some pandemic pounds at this point. Not being able to get as much exercise, plus being stuck at home with my wife, who is an amazing cook, putting together three meals a day. She's gone to 100% remote work (our area isn't calling in off-specialty doctors for Covid units yet, so...

Any chance we get a run of UKPK with Rex 45 in both FRN and G10 burnt orange?

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. ...
