Howdy everyone, just a couple quick questions that I'd like to get everyone's opinion on. I've made a few of my own arrows this past winter with a hand plane and it would take me about 1 day to make…Continue
Howdy everyone, this is my first post on here and I was looking for some insight. Are any of you firearms instructors or know of anyone who is one as a career? I did some serious thinking about where…Continue
"I've owned 2 Taurus 1911s and both have been excellent. Good triggers, reliable, and lots of nice options for the money. One of them had a problem with the 2 halves of the ambidextrous safety coming apart, but a different safety or…"
"I have one of the Remington 1911s and it is an extremely well made gun. Tightly fitted, accurate with an excellent trigger and very good sights. I can highly recommend this gun. Also, in American made guns, look for Ruger's 1911, they have a…"
Hello Gents, I'm planning on buying my first handgun and I am really leaning towards a 1911. I love the American image of a 1911, the history behind it and the design itself. I also am a big fan of the .45 ACP round, and the fact that it is an all steel handgun. Anyone have any suggestions as to what entry level 1911 would be a good choice?

The woods I am considering right now are Birch, Sugar Maple (have…See More
"I think I get it. It's that if you are a man and genuine, you will often be labeled in ways that are not honest, that is, that are BS. (I had a hard time parsing this myself.)
I don't think he's calling us to realize that…"
"I don't get your meaning.
If the label is accurate then its accurate: own it then change or live with it. If not accurate, why sweat it? Just give the labeler the finger and move on. Life is far to short to give a damn about petty crap like…"
"The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced Richard is on to the right answer. Courage is action in the face of fear. Integrity is acting like the man you want to be. Courage-of-conviction is acting in accordance with…"
"One word? I will go with genuine.
A man who is genuine is humbly aware of what knows and what he doesn't know and is comfortable with his skill and expertise.
Such a man knows the value of a honest day's work and steps up.
"Not sure why it's so difficult to understand that attributes can be masculine or feminine even when undertaken by the opposing sex. Activity is masculine. Introspection is feminine. Competition is masculine. …"
"I think that's the best answer so far. Any other masculine attribute is impotent without action.
