Native 5 salt...100%

If you dont want serrations forget h1, lc200n is a better option.

If you are constantly working in the rain a salt series is much easier than anything with carbon or tool steel.
I agree with everything VDC said, I'd go with the Native 5 Salt!

I’ve got a few discontinued knives (10) that I’d probably move, this Wegner Jr. is going in my coffin with me!

Re: Something we don’t see enough of

I have a large Wegner, and yes, it is a beautiful knife that feels great in hand. Oddly enough, it’s one of the few knives I own that I’m a bit overly-protective of. I have CRKs that I’ve been less-than-kind to, but for some reason, I protect my Spydie Wegner. Jim I have a C49 Wegner Jr. and I feel...

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

Anyone here have any experience with a Zero Tolerance Les George 0909 model? I know where a brand new discontinued one is for a decent price, just curious if anyone here has one and what their impressions were? I know it's a beast of a folder!

I'm watching.

We seem to have been adding "Warnie" blades quite a bit lately. Probably Mike's fault. :p

Re: The Last Gun You Bought

VERY nice. The LEM is the firearms equivalent of the Spydie Hole. You can get a knife without one, but why? Thanks RI, my only problem with the LEM system (and I have 4 of them now), is that I (me) have to train solely with it. I feel like I get a little out of sorts when I shoot my Glocks, my DA/S...

That is a fantastic pistol, my wife bought me mine in 2005, no telling how many thousands of rounds have been through it?

Re: The Last Gun You Bought

Finally found my unicorn yesterday afternoon! HK P30L 9mm in V1 light LEM. It’s the LE model which has an extra mag (3 total) and Meprolight night sights. I paid more than I wanted to and still got a pretty great deal, I’ve been looking for one for well over a year, I pick it up Tuesday. This shop o...

I collect big things. If it weighs less than a 3000 pounds, I'm not interested.

Re: Collectibles

Still waiting for the right time/buyer for this one. When my parents moved to VA 5-6 years ago, they needed me to come to their house and take a bunch of stuff I kept there over the years because they had way more storage space. I started looking through all my old cards and came across this one. O...

Here's a custom I made on the Rawling's builder, I'm pretty proud of this glove and the way it turned out.

Re: Collectibles

My main hobby is collecting baseball gloves, mainly custom, pro-issue, and exclusive Rawlings, not retail gloves! At the time of this pic, this is about a third of what I own or have owned. My daughter is a freshman playing college softball, all through travel ball I was always known as the glove gu...

Re: Home Protection and or CC

I’ve had friends, church members, and people in my softball circles who know I shoot ask me about buying their first handgun, I tell them not to worry or stress over it. It should be a fun, learning process, and by the time you actually buy it you should be very well informed! For strictly home defe...

Yeah, this forum really needs a “like” button! Paul, great looking Sig, did a little research and reading on it, great pistol. I think I’ve only ever seen you post your snubbie revolvers, and today you show off this jewel!
