    Popped hot for COVID - AMA

    Here's some unsolicited advice from someone who took the COVID+ ride in Dec: - Go out today and buy yourself an oximeter. These can be purchased online or any CVS. Find your baseline 02 reading and check this several times a day. If it drops below 92-90, go straight to the ER. - Expect to see...

    Maggie’s Horizontal Offset Smoker Replacement?

    Call Ben Lang and order one of these. He's about 3-4mos out on delivery, so that'll give you some time to prepare for the expense. Make sure you have access to enough wood to feed it.

    K-Bars Ultralight self defense blade for female runner

    I used to run with one of these. You run holding the "ball" of the club in one hand, and the shaft aligns with your arm. Surprisingly light and easy to move with... almost like the Masai in Kenya who've been running constantly for the last 3,000yrs were onto something. When needed, you simply...

    Anyone's doc not sold on the COVID vaccine?

    Got COVID in mid-Dec. Took a few days to shake off, and got back to normal after a little over a week. I'm 44 and otherwise healthy, for reference. Risk vs. Reward. I know the risk now, and antibodies or not, it's not worth the uncertainty of a vaccine for a "known".

    Lightweight hunting build

    That's funny, I was strongly considering the Kahles 318i for this build as well. Ultimately, it was the below thread that persuaded me to the S&B due to the Kahles limited FOV. It just didn't seem right sacrificing FOV on a rifle who's primary use is hunting. Good luck on your decisions...

    Lightweight hunting build

    I've posted this in other threads, but here's a recent build I put together with almost exactly your stated intent. Without bipod and scope it's right at 7lbs. Yes, I know I put a damn 2lb scope on a lightweight rifle... every man has his weaknesses. Stock - Manners MCS-TA w/ mini-chassis...

    Show me your McMillan a6 and a5

    If memory serves, I split it 33% Olive / 33% Tan / 34% Light Tan. It was at Diana at McMillan's suggestion from her personal rifle, and she's since passed away.

    2 Camping/Tent Questions. Need Help Please!

    If you want floorless and good ventilation, go with the Kifaru Sawtooth. You can even put a stove in it, and stand up while you get dressed. Just use a tarp with it as a ground covering. There is a learning curve on these things, so set it up at least twice before trying in the field. If you...

    Dan Post, Tecovas and Luchese???

    I went through this earlier this year, and now own two pairs of Lucchese. It was a good move, although I admittedly got lucky and ordered boots that naturally fit me well. As to proper fit, review the material on Lucchese's website carefully regarding ideal heel slip and forefoot feel, and...

    Rifle Scopes S&B 3-20x50-PM II Ultra Short, opinions, 1500m work

    S&B updated this scope for the "DT II+" turrets recently. If the elevation turrets look short like the 5-20US, they are the older variety. If they're taller, it's the new one. Difference is the MTC (More Tactile Clicks) are discernible at every 5th click, and there is a rotating device on the...

    First Custom Rifle Build | Tips Appreciated

    Keep in mind you can eliminate a lot of guesswork with the Manners/Zermatt/Proof combination. Manners can install the chassis for the TL3, and you can order the pre-fit barrel from Proof. Shortest CF barrel Proof offers in 6.5CM is 20", which is threaded 5/8x24. The Manners chassis would also...

    Tenebraex scope caps.

    Keep in mind the cap can be rotated such that the hinge is on the 9 or 3 o'clock position. This greatly reduces the clearance. Here's a 50mm obj on a tapered barrel with a 1" high ring. The cap will not clear when the hinge is in the 12 o'clock position, but this isn't a problem when rotated...
