Quote: re emailed t hem now that hunting season is over on the pro gress of loading the 9x25 Dillon with the 65 grain bullet they load in the 357 sig. will be eager to t ake both 9" long barreled pistols out and run them head to head.

should be a a flat shooting out of the glock and ammo weight won't be very high. Having seen some penetration capab ilities of the 90 grain load I'm s ure this won't be any slouch [Image: clear.png];)

  Diplomatic blades and a couple of choppers
Posted by: Stormcrow - 01-25-2018, 05:13 AM - Forum: Knives and Assorted Weapons - Replies (3)

I had an interesting opportunity pop up recently when I was contacted about making a couple of knives to be used as diplomatic gifts between the US Army and a couple of generals in the Mexican Army.  I didn't have a whole lot of time to work with, but I happened to have some prototype mid-tech Benghazi Warfighter and Little Rok blades already ground, heat treated, and powdercoated, so I agreed. 

3/16" 80CrV2 steel, TeroTuf handles, and flared stainless steel tube handle rivets.

When I was given the names and ranks to be laser engraved in the blades, I was surprised to find that the knives were gifts for the Mexican Secretary of Defense and his Chief of Staff!   :o

It was an honor to be chosen for the task.  Smile

And, on an entirely different tack, a couple of choppers finished up recently.  Forged 80Crv2, paracord over neoprene, marine epoxy, the usual.

13 1/2" blade, black and gold.  Customer commented, "Love my knife."

14 1/4" blade, tan and black.  This customer, a fellow knife maker, commented, "Dude!  This thing is perfect.  I love it!"

Always glad to have happy customers.  Smile

  Here is a question that might generate some new ideas for equipment.
Posted by: Limey Pete - 01-19-2018, 08:26 AM - Forum: Backpacking and Gear Testing - Replies (29)

What items are good that armies of the world issue to their forces?
For instance I can think of a few.

The Swiss Army Knife.

The US P38 can opener.

British Army mess tins.

The German Army Jerry can.

Any more?
