    A wheel gun thread on a knife forum S&W Model 19 alternative

    Oooooh I didn't know Kimber made a .357.....maybe I can convince my wife to buy it for me...err I meant her!!! I think ultimately she's looking for a fool- and stress-test proof home defense weapon that she can reliably operate in a home defense situation and also enjoy at the range. Pre is for...

    A wheel gun thread on a knife forum S&W Model 19 alternative

    I thought it was the lighter grain higher velocity rounds that were bad for the Model 19 but that the 686 could shoot 357 all day?

    Best Cargo Pants

    The wrangler flex's are actually my paintball pants. I can tell you from experience that the lightweight material can take a beating including knee and thigh slides on grass and turf without so much as a rip in 10 months of playing in them nearly every weekend.

    That was her rationale btw but she likes full size semi autos so maybe I can rent the 686 for some range time.

    A wheel gun thread on a knife forum S&W Model 19 alternative

    I've been pushing a 686 at her hard, I'm unsure why she is hooked on the Model 19, I think it's because it's a collectible and slightly lighter. That said I think that 686 should definitely be in the mix of suggestions.

    A wheel gun thread on a knife forum S&W Model 19 alternative

    Hey Folks, I know you guys have an opinion about this but the wife wants a wheelgun, more specifically S&W Model 19 but all the old collector coots/hoarders out there have the prices jacked up on these guys and the new ones aren't available. So in you opinions' what would be a good...

    Knives are like speakers...

    I once looked at it that way and then I had a change of heart. I realized that after looking far and wide. Variety is not the spice of life. In use I like what I like and often the best knife out there or my favorite knife is not my most useful or most carried. I now tend to focus on what I...

    The Just Hanging Out Thread.

    Mid/Late summer update. So some interesting things happened at work. We started to go back to the office 2X a week, although I must admit when it gets busy I stay home as I often need the extra time. I work at a comms agency and one of the guys pointed at my pocket. I paused as I whipped out...

    The Just Hanging Out Thread.

    I met a guy online while chatting about paintball. It's another hobby that I enjoy in the weekends. Turned out he was a very knowledgeable knife nut. We were chatting and he was looking to get his dad a gent's knife possibly a Spyderco slippie. I ended offering to send him that le Ripple in...

    I had to go back to the office again for the first time in 15 months. I ended up with an Alox in my pocket today. I need to start revisiting traditionals again!

    Or maybe some shotgun slugs as it will be in plentiful of supply for zombies and anarchists.

    PIF heads up. Btw, I'm prepping a Alienware laptop. It's heavy, has an older i5 chip in and a full sized graphics card. It was my wife's gaming laptop. Battery has always only held about a 2 hour charge bc of the NVIDIA card in it. If someone at the local school isn't going to grab it I'm...

    Nice I'm a paintball guy myself. The fields that I play at all run airsoft games adjacent to the fields where we play though!

    The Just Hanging Out Thread.

    It certainly is right now. An old client of mine in Florida right before things hit the fan the first time bought a pallet of 9 and 22. He shoots IDPA but I'm sure he's flipping the ammo these days even though he doesn't need to.

    I just picked up this guy as well. Not a lot of knife stuff going on during the pandemic for me. Canik Combat Elite, it comes from the factory loaded with goodies from Salient Arms. Ammo is $40 a box though so I'm unmotivated to go out and break her in...need to save that for the zombies I guess.

    It was really funny you said that as I had been interviewing with a pretty funny lady. She worked in venture cap and she showed the goods to make me laugh. She had on regular on top but was wearing sweat pants underneath. I had cracked a joke about it and she said that's exactly what she was...

    Oh it has and it hasn't I was a cross border consultant for European companies whose companies were publicly listed in the U.S. most of the time I would never meet or see a client. So now I have to appear decent on calls at least from the waist up lol.

    After a year away from working I'm officially employed again. If we ever return to office and commuting I may have to pick up a few traditionals! Hope all everyone is well in the New Year!
