Recommended: Gtgconsult - dry fire practice videos

Danish veteran and sports shooter Ebbe Wolff is releasing a bunch of videos on his Instagram page "Gtgconsult" focused around the basics of pistol shooting. I haven't met or trained with him myself, but some people I trust a lot have taken his classes and know him personally. The videos are short an...

Re: Soon to be new parent

Thanks for all your answers :) I will of course update as things progress, and any and all advice are very welcome. We were lucky enough to get a stroller and baby-holder-thing for the car (baby protector? I don't know) from friends whose kids just outgrew them. We were signed up for birth/parenting...

Soon to be new parent

Hi Our first child is due late May. We've been prepping for years and are pretty well set for the most part. But this is new territory as you might expect. Mostly I'm looking for advice on what items to add to my preps. But also what you wish you knew beforehand about dealing with difficult times wi...

Re: "Daily COVID-19 SITREP In Your Area"

So far, I feel that Sweden is handling the pandemic fairly well. Recommendations are for everyone 70+ to avoid social interactions entirely. For everyone to work from home if at all possible. Avoid all unnecessary travel. Stay at home if sick in any way. Gov will cover sick leave to help employers (...

Re: Australian Bush Fires

Sister in law has many friends in Australia. All safe so far, but this is a real mess.

I've been in a few wildfires (armed forces supporting fire department), not fun.

A massive STAY SAFE to all ppl fighting the fires and those trapped in its path.

Reintructions might be in order.

Hi. I've been gone for some time but am getting more and more fed up with the current state of social media and the Internet in general. I was very happy to find the old forums still up and running.

Interesting.
I live in Sweden which apparently is the tenth safest country, with some family and close friends in Malta - the second safest. Pretty ok.

Also, it's dark here. Probably something to do with the fact that it's 11pm.

Re: My new camping wood stove

Would you be willing to share the design?

I'd happily order one from the same guy, but I'm thinking shipping it halfway across the globe would be kinda cost-prohibitive.

Based on the second image, I came up with this design.

I must also figure out how to attach it to the bow.

Re: New project. Arrow rest/whisker bisquit. *Input Wanted*

I have the stick-on plastic thingy on it now. It works, but it's not very nice.

After that I'll try to make sights and, if I can figure it out, dampeners.

New project. Arrow rest/whisker bisquit. *Input Wanted*

With an (albeit primitive) release finished. The next part of my cheap-ass bow project is a new arrow rest. I'm still in the planning phase and would like some input. Right now I'm leaning towards some kind of captive design, like a whisker bisquit. Maybe like this: http://i226.photobucket.com/album...

Re: DIY archery release. Pic heavy. *FINISHED*

Nice site, seems to have lots of interesting info.

I've been thinking about turning the bow into a project where I try to build our improvise as many accessories as possible, your link is sure to come in handy.

Ok, I know what you mean.

No, I dont think it's grafted. It looks like a single trunk that just branches out. I'll get some pics tomorrow.

Re: My attempts at gardening.

Can you tell if it is a grafted apple tree? Are there any other apples around to pollinate it? They're very pretty when they bloom even if they don't set on fruit. I don't know what to look for. It appears to be starting to form fruit. There are probably other trees nearby, but I haven't really che...

Re: Making an archery release. Pic heavy.

I finished it today.

I sanded the whole thing down and applied a coat of linseed oil.

The grove for the string required some adjusting, I damn near gave myself a nosebleed when it let go at half draw.
