Re: "Z GRIP" on a real rifle?

I googled video of people shooting the paintball guns with Z grips. Never realized: paintball guns don't have stocks, and the users don't hold them with arms extended the way you'd hold a pistol. They sort of curl the whole gun up to eye level. That puts their forearm almost pointing straight up. I...

Re: "Z GRIP" on a real rifle?

I've often wondered why I've never seen this style of grip on a real firearm. Because real firearms have something called recoil that would suck sweaty balls with an angled grip like that! Try holding your paintball gun at full extension, one-handed and see if you can fire it that way. In the real ...

Re: Are firesteels really worth a damn?

If you can't light the tinder with a match, then it's your tinder/fire prep that's the problem and not the firesteel. This is a good point! Like I said before, many fires have been started with much more primitive methods. In my case, fifteen matches later... Try Storm matches! If you cant start a ...

Re: Military 2Qt Plastic Canteen BPA Free? (1A863, 2003)

Honestly I think some of the makers of SS bottles had more to do with the BPA "scare" than anyone. Sales at companies like Kleen Kanteen skyrocketed after it went public. In the studies the lab animals were given grossly exaggerated amounts of BPA. Each quote is linked to the website where I found i...

Re: Are firesteels really worth a damn?

Firesteels throw a very hot spark, much hotter than flint and steel. Our predecessors built fires in all temps from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes using the flint and steel method. If you cant start a fire with a firesteel, you're doing it wrong. Know the fire triangle, know how to recognize ...
