Re: Bedroll pack

Ive used a wool blanket wrapped around a thermarest, and wrapped with a MEST tarp in a bedroll. Rolled up about the size of a thin sleeping bag, carried well with the cotton webbing straps. But i just couldnt get it to work for me. Im spoiled nowadays and dont care for ground dwelling. They are pret...

Re: I need some axe heads hung

House handle has the best service with the broadest array of replacement handles. Theres a few other brands that make more apecialized sizes, like Beaver Tooth handles. I just finished this True Temper tomahawk last night. 18" handle from beaver tooth. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170403/...

Re: Training Day

Sounds like a long exhausting day of great training! We civilians aren't normally exposed to that sort of thing, but if society goes down the toilet like some seem to think it might, it would be valuable. I'd be happy to be able to pop off a double tap in practice for the LTC course. Even though th...
