Re: Bow vs air rifle for shtf/prepping?

I really like the earlier suggestion of a wooden crossbow with some modern tweaks. Doesn't seem unreasonable. And I'd take some of JoergS"s stuff over an air rifle, I think

Re: Deepeka Baskethilt

Been looking at a Scottish Basket hilt Backsword or Broadsword. It's more of a Renfair decoration, but if I buy something, it's going to be functional. I've been big into genealogy lately, and have obtained a kilt in family tartan, as well as a beautiful Devil's Edge Sgain Dubh, and Dirk in Damascu...

Re: Atlanta Walkout

This is because the DA has lost all confidence of the law enforcement community in the area. One week he went on TV and told the world that a TASER was deadly force and the officers were wrong for using it to enable an arrest. A couple of weeks later he reversed himself and said it was not deadly f...

Re: Seattle: The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone

Local news sources are now reporting that security forces have retaken control of rebel held areas. In a show of force they are closing businesses (including those who filed lawsuits against CHOP) by not allowing anyone into the “secured area” local news teams that were on scene during the 3rd wave...

Re: Which is the better weapon Kukri or Katana?

If I "HAD" to pick, I'd go katana because it's longer. That's it. Hopefully, my baseball seeing will easily translate to difficult katana skills. But I'd prefer a blunt weapon. And if I had my pick of blade, it'd be a traditional machete. But now I'm thinking kukri. I dunno... I train a little in H...

Re: Which is the better weapon Kukri or Katana?

Yeah, I wasn't *quite* ready to pay even Cold Steel prices on a Ren Fair piece....Maybe soon. The Deepeka said battle ready at Kult Of Athena, and was like $150. The quandary, is it's mostly decorative, but something irks my about having a weapon that's essentially fake, that I can"t use in a pinch

Re: PSA AR-10 Handguard

Well, I'll post pics when it's done. Sounds like I'm getting my feet wet with MLOK, because I'll actually hunt with this rifle too, vs don't with my AR/AK. And weight SHOULD factor in the decision making process. Thanks!

Marlin makes a fine lever gun as well. Man, I have to disagree there. Marlin used to make a fine lever gun, but their current offerings are sub-par. And the models they made in the years after they moved the factory are downright junk. I bought my last one around 2003, so I won't nay-say you... I'l...

Marlin makes a fine lever gun as well. However, if price is a factor, the 30/30 is probably the cheapest, most well rounded lever gun caliber out there. Well made by many companies. https://www.sportsmans.com/shooting-gear-gun-supplies/rifles/marlin-model-336-lever-action-rifle/p/p30459 This is new,...

As is typical for 2020 there are denials and "clarifications" over this matter. “This is not an organized thing, it’s not a blue flu, it’s not a strike, it’s nothing like that. What it actually is, is officers protesting that they’ve had enough and they don’t want to deal with it any longer,” he sa...
