Re: Spyderco and law enforcement personnel

People on this forum are outliers obviously as I have more Spyderco’s than I can count. Most guys I work with carry cheap “tactical” knives with a serrated edge and glass breaker. I’ve seen a few guys with ZT’s and microtechs. Are the guys you work with LEOs/Military people ? I find those who reall...

Re: The Gauntlet Stands Revealed

I'm betting it's easier to sharpen serrations with the gauntlet. If i was a really new guy to the hobby or had a minor passing interest in keeping blades sharp the Gauntlet would be interesting. If i saw it on a shelf at bass pro or walmart or wood crafters I'd consider it. It looks nice but not for...

Re: Librem Computers and Phone

why wouldn't VOIP apps do similar data mining to cellular carriers? My brother has used VOIP due to poor cell service in his area, it's been a mixed bag as far as call quality and incoming connectivity. Free and open source VOIP, encrypted end to end. No baseband antenna in the phone until/unless y...

Librem Computers and Phone

Any thoughts on these? Maybe by a company called Purism. Anyone know if they're using x86 chips in the computers and whether they've disabled the backdoors from everything negative of the 0 ring? We know that the management engine still has some undecyphered blobs which causes some concern but is ev...

Re: Homelessness Insurance: How come we don't see this? Could insurance companies market this?

There is another way around the whole problem, but, it would require a very advanced and sophisticated society, and it still would have possible flaws, due to the moral nature of said people. If there was some way to upgrade every person no matter whom they are, and no matter what their previous ge...

The 2019 DLC Shaman costs over $200😂😂😂😂 that’s truly laughable for G10 and S30v. The sprints will probably cost $280+/- hard pass.
Honestly, your post will likely be the response from most people who'd be looking at it.

Re: More on Zombie and Vampire Apocalypse

We're already in a zombie apocalypse. You think those are rational, thinking, educated human beings you see everywhere? At best they're NPC, non playable characters, at worst they're zombies. How many people do you meet every day that can handle truth about how things are? How many people would rob ...

Re: Using Spears for Survival and Hunting: What do you know?

Something about breeding and training dogs to hunt and catch hogs while the person uses either a long knife or spear to kill the hog harkens to me as a primal, true way to hunt. Likewise with bow or spear fishing. Those methods of collecting meat seem to resonate with me as the only pure ways to hun...

My oldest nephew was always quite different than the rest of the family,. Even when he was only 8 years old he seemed like being in the company of another adult. He could hold very intelligent conversations than many people in my own age group at the time. He quit high school when he was only 15 ( ...

OK, I'm calling BS right now... too many RKBA people use the tired old saw of driving being a privilege, not a right. Are you seriously telling me that if your "privilege" to drive a car was revoked that it wouldn't affect you as much or more than the revocation of your "Right" to keep and bear arm...
