  Becker BK-5 ...sort of
Posted by: Dashing - 12-04-2017, 03:16 PM - Forum: Knives and Assorted Weapons - Replies (4)

My son has a few real fixed blades and a pocket knife or three, but at 8 years old he still likes the toy versions too.  He had his choice of knives from the collection and selected the BK-5 as the pattern for this wooden knife.  We made it together so he got to use the band saw and do some sanding too.  I thought somebody might get a kick out of it.

I hadn't been around for a few years and got to wondering what everyone was up to.  Fortunately, I actually remembered my password! 

I haven't been up to much.  I've experimented with some hobbies and decided I liked shooting and reloading.

I'm still running a garden and I bought the acre lot next to me, so I've installed an electric fence and my goats arrive sometime in the next two weeks.
I'm also getting stuck with a mini donkey.  It was a rescue donkey and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it.  Probably just feed it!  Ha.

  Personal Survival Kits - Theoretical and Practical Discussion
Posted by: Dashing - 12-01-2017, 01:47 AM - Forum: Urban Survival Skills - Replies (23)

I am sure most, if not all, Hoodlums have constructed a PSK of some kind.  I think I made my first one when I was about 13 years old.  I have used stand-alone kits the size of an Altoids tin which are taped shut and only touched in the event of an emergency, and I've used others that rode on the sheath of a knife and were purpose built for constant use and replenishment much like a possibles kit.  

Though I have used several variations and sizes of survival kits over the years, every time I make a new one it is different that the last.  Whether the difference is small and relates to a minor equipment change, or large and due to a significant skill development or to fill a different role, no two have ever been alike.

My intent in starting this thread is to open up a discussion where we can share knowledge, experience, and theory that will help improve each other's kits.

Please feel free to post photos of your kits, lists of the contents, information about the items and why you chose them, and your experience with how they worked.

  9x25 dillon at 200 yards Glock 20
Posted by: Scottman - 11-29-2017, 10:52 PM - Forum: Knives and Assorted Weapons - Replies (6)

First year I didn’t get to the deer stand looks like I might have had a shot at 200 yards , continuously reminded of how excellent and flat shooting 9x25 Dillon and even a stock glock 20 is as an outdoorsman’s handgun

  single stack 10mm

Glock should make a single stack 10mm for people who can’t get a grip on a double stack 45 or 10mm with custom barrels up to 9 inches in 9x25 Dillon 357 sig 40 and 10mm with different twist rate barrels for what loads you are running . Would be a good smaller grip hand gun with good hunting attributes excellent backwoods protection and in 9x25 Dillon flat shooting light ammo and legal to carry in places that have banned 556 pistols .

  Gunshow this Sunday
Posted by: Grizzly Dave - 11-23-2017, 10:22 PM - Forum: Knives and Assorted Weapons - Replies (5)

This Sunday is American Thanksgiving so I took the day off to go to a gun show just north of where I live.
I am culling the herd a bit, a Winchester 94 saddle carbine made in 1901 in 30-30. I bought it because I had a whole lot of 30-30 ammo and no rifle. Then I got a smokin deal on a Model 64 carbine, so the saddle carbine goes on the table.
Next is a Lee-Enfield No. 1 Scottish Stalking rifle, not a real fancy one, but likely a hundred years or more with three leaf sight. I never shoot it and it goes on the table
Lastly a Ruger No.1 A in .270 win. I have had it for a while and never shoot it. I have a Kimber 84 in.30-06 which performs similar to the .270 and I tend to take it because it is 3 pounds lighter. It's the one I shot all my animals in Africa with and I know it will do the deed. So the Ruger is on the table.
Tonight I will rummage through the three chests of knives and see what I can live without and hopefully will have the money to buy a 9mm off my son and pay for my Steiner binoculars that I put on my card on Tuesday...so wish me luck.

Griz
