    "Right-handed privilege"

    As a natural lefty I carry a revolver in my left hip pocket, it's sometimes primary sometimes a backup. The Taurus M380 is so sweet for this role. A revolver because no external controls to hunt for, which is a bonus because I am still most comfortable shooting with my right hand as my dad...

    HellCat verses Sweat! Words of Warning

    I have used Birchwood Casey's gunstock wax on the outside of blued and stainless firearms for probably close to 30 years or so. Works great, they look great. My 60s east German Makarov I carried daily for almost 20 years looks basically new. I wiped them down with the cloth I remove the wax down...

    Outdoor Survival Knives

    I agree, I never have less than two knives on me, in the woods usually three if you count a pocket knife, or often a belt ax instead of a larger knife. But, the man asked for a knife, not knives, so I answered accordingly. And it's at best, a compromise.

    The Irony

    Not placing any blame, I was not there but one thing I am curious about is. Why was the gun pointed at this person when the trigger was pulled if the firearm was used in a scene of the movie? My understanding, she was not an actress.

    I think when an outdoors survival knife is discussed generally it is considered a blade which will help you survive in the wilderness. This includes tasks like shelter building, fire building, food procurement and preparation, and any other number of other tasks, including self defense. Of...

    Outdoor Survival Knives

    Well since we are talking outdoors survival the first thing we need to agree on is that a knife is a poor substitute for an ax. And a large knife that can be used decently for ax tasks, will be a poor substitute for a skinning knife. Therefore a do it all survival knife will have to be a...
