Re: The Tactical Bottle Opener: Spyderco ClipiTool Standard

The beer may be in cans, but when I receive my Care Package from the Beer of the Month Club I get to deploy the Standard to slit open the carton. Brewed in Jackson Hole Wyoming, this 7.5% ABV IPA reminds me of when I attended the rodeo there. The announcer introduced a bronc rider from Montana sayin...

The 2020 Houston Art Car Parade fell victim to Covid 19 but you can check the Google Images from previous years to get an idea of how creative those people are. When I lived in Houston I attended a couple of the parades. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/da0w2Se5Rh-g18C81nc1YC0nmdVO6MfCv0bHiS_I3G12P...

... To Ride, Shoot Straight and Speak the Truth by Col. Jeff Cooper, USMC Ret.
If you have not read it already, you might like Cooper's The Art of the Rifle.
In it one can see the origins of the Scout Rifle concept he advocated later on.

Re: Cara Cara 2 sized hawkbill?

Something like the S blade on the Matriarch or Civilian. The length would fall in between those two.
Give it a name of its own. The Vulture.

(A Caracara Eagle is not above eating carrion either. I've witnessed it and have them on my game camera.)

Re: Vacation Knives

This 8% Double IPA from Louisiana is the only Parish brew I've had. I wrote about it here on my ClipiTool Standard bottle opener thread . It's grown to 22 pages and has more than 68,000 views. I don't think they're in it for the Standard. And FeistyKat, when I'm on a driving vacation my Seecamp is i...

Re: The Last Gun You Bought

Out here in the country, I have been able to use predictive fire, also called map shooting. Printing google satellite photos of the pasture north of my back porch, I scribed the radius in yards from my picnic table and penciled in the hold off at 50 yard intervals. Coyotes have fallen to my 220 Swif...

Finally, I spotted something new in my little neighborhood Brookshire Brothers Express.

Did TSA confiscate your LADYBUG

Yesterday I bought a discontinued LADYBUG™ II BLACK FRN LBKII serrated sheepsfoot like the one below from a guy in a parking lot. I was there for the Ontario SP-1 and SP-10 he had on CraigsList but he also had a ziplock bag full of pocket knives that he bought from the State Surplus Store in Austin,...

Re: The Tactical Bottle Opener: Spyderco ClipiTool Standard

We bid a fond farewell, once again, to Galveston Island. Eric Glesser's clever bartender's tool had a workout lifting the caps on beer bottles and slashing open bags of ice. Of course I could have torn the bags open with my hands, but what's the fun in that. Until next year... Glen Campbell - Galves...

Re: The Tactical Bottle Opener: Spyderco ClipiTool Standard

The Devil's Backbone is a popular road for sportbike riders in Austin. Sort of a Texas version of Mulholland Drive with Riley's as a stand in for the Rock Store. My riding days are over now but in roughly 100,000 miles on two wheels, I fortunately suffered nothing worse than a self-inflicted broken ...

Good surfing in Galveston is hard to come by but one determined group has found a way. They chase down oil tankers and surf the bow wave. It may not be a big wave, but it lasts a long, long time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8n1wqUgC7x4 Another possibility would be to reshape the seafloor. Costly...
