    EDC Knife size

    I've been carrying an esee izula since just after Christmas. I bought an esee 3 to try to EDC but it's too big and snagged on everything. I put a tek-lok on the factory sheath of the izula I messed with the Artemis architect sheath but am not sold on horizontal carry.

    Radio for Plate Carrier?

    Nope all the big name gmrs radios have them removable. FRS radios cant have have removable antennas and are limited on power to 2 watts. Gmrs can have a removable antenna and up to 50 watts of power on mobile/base setups and I believe 5 watts on HTs.

    Radio for Plate Carrier?

    I have btech wouxon and retevis radios. My favorite is the wouxon with it I can hit a repeater in muncie from marion with the wouxon kg805g. It's all line of sight so if one of the radios is elevated it makes a world of difference. You can get roll up slim Jim antennas that you can toss into a...

    Radio for Plate Carrier?

    A gmrs license will cover you and your family. Gmrs can also use repeaters so that's nice too. I have FCC compliant gmrs and murs radios to train with and play with. Then I have a box of baofengs for when the fcc doesn't matter and they can do frs murs gmrs and ham it's just not legal to use...

    So.. what are you reloading at the moment??

    Loaded up some spicy 44mag 240xtp loads yesterday need to try them out this week. Also got a hundred 300blk 220gr cast bullets loaded. Also picked up the mini chop saw from harbor freight and that makes a heck of a difference when making 300blk brass. I'm either going to make a jig or maybe...

    Flame bluing

    As a general rule I try to avoid a trannys fluids but I think I'll give it a try. I ordered a new screw kit for the cattleman and I'll experiment with the old screws and see what I can do.

    Flame bluing

    Might have to do some experimenting. Nitre salts are pretty pricey from brownells. I read about using stump killer too. My bolt and trigger spring broke so now I've dove into a rabbit hole of modifying the gun while I wait for new springs

    In planning on pulling all the screws from one of my uberti SAA clones and fire bluing them. I've used brass shavings when I was in high school machining but I don't have the shavings and I don't want to waste any brass stock to make some. Has anyone used the sand or molten lead bath method? The...
