Anybody play with one? picked up one in 177 for myself for 100 with two extra mags for 3 dollars a piece.  Picked up the 22 version for 100 for a guy down the road.

Will have to play with them compared to my other airguns.

  What Caused you to become a Survivalist?

I ran a search and did not find anything which matched my query.  So if there has been a previous similar thread please advise and over look this one. 

What created the interest or desire to become a survivalist, prepper, or self-sufficient individual or family?

Airgun Technology in the Great depression

any info? we did a photo of an article from a 1993 gun digest talking about the ratio between 22 shorts and 32 rimfire.

Wondering how common pellet guns were back then? did they have access to in todays terms 60 dollar remanufactured nitro piston crosman F4 shoot in g 1000 fps ?

What was the cost ratio between 22 shorts back then and 177 pellets?

ok enough rambling for now back to the garden.

  Blade Show 2018
Posted by: ddennis2 - 06-02-2018, 09:34 PM - Forum: Knives and Assorted Weapons - Replies (2)

Cindy Sue and I made the trek over to Atlanta to attend the 2018 Blade Show.

We were not disappointed.  While there we hooked up with Luke Swenson and his lovely wife Kimberly.  In addition, we stopped and chatted with Stormcrow and his spouse, two down to earth and remarkable people. Grizzly Dave, Rather B Camping, Brumbie and Rick Marchand from this forum were also in attendance and it was our pleasure to spend some time, albeit, way too short,  with all of them.

For those that have never attended, Blade Show is probably the premier show in this country.  There are more knives, supplies and equipment than you can possibly imagine.  This show has everything for the knife aficionado, the beginning knife maker and leather maker, the advanced knife and leather maker, and just those curious.

This year, the place was populated by many of the Forged in Fire competitors and we actually bumped into Doug Marcaida, one of the judges in the series.  Doug is a friendly and open fellow and it was a treat for us to spend a couple of minutes with him.  As you can imagine, he was surrounded by folks wishing to get a photo with him, or his autograph. I overheard one fellow say that you can't sling a cat without hitting a Forged in Fire winner/competitor! Smile

For those who are intimidated by prices, there is no reason for that.  While there are many high dollar, custom knives, there are also many bargains to be had.  We noted that several companies represented at the show offered BOGO's or parts and materials at discounted prices.  Shop wisely and you will need a wagon to schlep your scores out!

Make plans for Blade 2019...you will have fun!
