Re: Ammo

Anytime there is a disaster or a mass shooting or something that causes ammo to go out of stock quickly, I hit my online sources. The day after the tragic school shooting in Connecticut, after I cried for about 20 minutes, I logged onto Sportsmens guide and ordered a bunch of ammo. Much of it came v...

Re: VIS Radom P35

I have always loved this pistol but strangely have never gotten my hands on one. Sometimes you get a design that is an amalgamation of many designs and it manages to take the best from all and to make a piece that is better than the piece that it was based upon. The CZ 75 comes to mind as well. But ...

Re: Looking for a new water bottle

Kleen kanteen makes a good one for the money. I believe you can get A metal lid or stopper for it which is good. Are use a heavy cover titanium canteen with canteen cup and lid. It is expensive but I have never regretted to purchase however one of my camping partners finally wore his out. Sent from ...

Re: Best Book To Take Out in the Field?

The area is key. Also what am I doing in the woods for this outing? So if I’m hunting, fishing, foraging, going out specifically to make primitive shelter for the work on my fire skills, this will dictate what I bring. I would always go with camping in woods craft by horse Kephart Because it has so ...

Re: Materials for bowdrill?

I still have some yucca stocks from a bush craft meet down near Tyler Texas. There’s plenty of Cedar and Oklahoma and I will try this method next time.

Re: My first attempt to start a fire with steel and flint

I never thought of that method of holding the tender above the Flint and striking the Flint with the Steel. I’ll give that a try next time

Re: Natural tinders

A recent trip with smoky Radley to the Arbuckle Mountains, I found a good quality of the inner bark of the cottonwood tree. It worked quite well but I admit I didn’t try it with a Ferro rod. I can usually find good and fine dry cedar park and I have been successful with that with a ferro rod. Smokie...

Re: Oklahoma blanket pack outing

with the proper "burrito" wrap or the diamond bedroll wrap, I would go about 35 in calm weather, with clean fresh long johns and sock. Our goal was to use the fire in front and our emergency blankets in a half shelter to reflect the fire's heat down to us. I would have been confident to about 25 deg...
