    Just picked up (at long last) a Mossberg 590A1......

    870 fans who like the trench gun aesthetics may want to get ahold of the old SGT Military model (maybe still produced by Wilson, not sure). With all of their usual custom work, this had a walnut stock, IIRC the heat sheild was integrated with a block over the mag extension (so the bbl and mag...

    Gerber Fast Draw

    I was about to purchase a Leek since I hadn't had a EDC in a long time, and was a fan of the Leek and the SpeedSafe assisted opening. I like the carrying charecteristics of it, but the handle, by the same token, can be too small and slippery should it be needed in certain emergencies. I knew...

    Bayonet mounted on trench gun...

    Thanks for that, I never heard of Jukendo before, that's awesome! They must take the stuff to another level...

    Your dream rifle.

    If custom is allowed, Smith Arms International M1A K-gun Ordinary production model? Steyr AUG. Maybe that more than the shorty M1A. Always found it to be...sexy looking, favorite guns are .223 assault rifles, like the bullpup design. This is just an awesome firearm I have always wanted. 20"...

    Bayonet mounted on trench gun...

    Is a devastating CQB weapon. Bayonets rarely see use outside Military training drills. They have been mounted on combat arms for centuries. But I think they really come into their own on a trench gun, moreso than on a battle rifle such as a M1A. Within 50 yards, such a setup provides probably...

    Winchester 1300 Marine - 12 Gauge

    I had one and did not really care for it. Too lightweight for its own good. Beleive me at the time my weapon of choice was a riot gun, no probems with any except this one in terms of recoil it was just savage. Forearm tried to rip my pinkie off with every shot. It was however a breeze to strip...

    Is there a pistol with.............

    I've been thinking of a Glock 20 vs. a .45 conversion to a .45 Super, .40 Super, .400 Corbon, or .460 Rowland. On one hand the Glock gives you up to 18 rounds. But one of the .45 based high performance rounds gives the extra power but most are non-permanent conversions or just a barrel change...

    Springfield EMP 1911 might have found my next carry gun.

    Did you try any EFMJ bullets? Looks like a good solution, for reliability vs. a JHP, but I don't know anyone who has tried them. I remember the 200gr. Gold Dots being notorious for misfeeds in every .45, seemed like it was only good for revolvers. I used 230 Hydra-Shoks and my Springfield never...

    Backwards Bullets?

    Anyone remember the Thunderzap .38+P round? It was a cylindrical plastic bullet,extremely light gr. that was supposed to be a great stopper. I used to collect boxes of different defensive handgun cartridges(JHP's, Frangibles, Multi-Ball,etc.), but these were impossible to get, I think they were...

    no rules

    There was one called Tent Tumble (well 2 of them) underground events held in Vancouver in a big circus tent. I have not seen these but apparently guys were kicking and stomping with workboots on, one guy lost a kidney, one of the main events was 2 guys who had a series going that started when...

    Any good striking instructional dvd's that...

    Any that demonstrate like, stomps (body and foot), soccer kicks, shoulder strikes, punching in the guard, stuff like that, strikes that it doesn't seem are trained routinely, not like, say, hooks are. I'd like to learn more about the proper forms and mechanics for better speed and power even for...

    The Spear as defensive weapon

    The Rapier blade was the turn on with the Windlass (you guys talked me out of it), wish CS made one of that configuration, not really into the stilletto blade. I was EXTREMELY dissappointed by their last catalog, the discontinuations. Gonna make sure to Pick up the Safekeeper 2 ASAP if still...

    Favorite Blade

    I voted Katana. I plan to get a quality set of 3 Japanese blades. Also would like a Barong, Roman Gladius, Chinese War Sword, Khukri, pair of Butterfly Swords, Sword cane, pirate cutlass, maybe a quality sabre (a CS model, maybe the 1796), a jambiya, Kris, Baselard, Bastard sword and so on...

    XS "big-dot" sights?

    I am a big fan of these and my next handgun will have these, if available in that particular gun (could be a 1911, Glock or Steyr M-9, but maybe I'll save and get the HK P7M8 I really want)

    Push Daggers

    Not a push dagger but I also owned a CS Kobun and found it to be an excellent CCW. A little longer than "Big Apple Special" size, but a great fixed blade to carry. The Master Hunter (esp. in the better steel) would be good to EDC but the grip is kind of thick for being discreet. Anyway the Kobun...

    Skinning Knife

    This is obviously way late but a Buck Buster might be of interest to hunters, it's a tool for the field dressing/gutting of deer. Has a forked design which allows the cutting of pelvis and brisket. Have seen them for sale, heard nothing of how well they wok but seems like a good idea

    The Spear as defensive weapon

    I have those same concerns. A guy on bladeforums was very pleased with his (aside from being a rapier blade- not sharp for cutting), said the fit and finish was great, but that was one person, and the only owner I know of. Quality could be hit or miss, and not much can be expected for that...

    The MT Side Knee in clinch

    I see what you are saying but I have seen people do it purely with the power of the hip flexors. One of my Ruas VT instructionals shows to do it that way, just bringing it over. I don't mean the hopping style (I have seen it done with power such as Silva did to Rampage's chin in the second...

    EDC suggestions?

    True, but at the same time, an LEO could arrest you for something that is legal. Different officers in my area have told me they would arrest someone for having a Spyderco Police (like she was carrying)(this was in the late 90's), another said "any" folder was alright. Many seem to think...

    "Carryable" Daggers

    I have always liked the look of the SOG Pentagon, and the one edge plain, other serrated, for versatility in everyday tasks. It was designed from the start for low profile carry; like a modern day Sgian Dubh. Not sure about the lack of hilt. Great for carry, but even with the texturing looks...

    The Spear as defensive weapon

    Do these arts employ cutting as well as thrusting. That ability is what impressed me the most on the Boar Spear and Assegai, got me interested in buying and training with spears. Never knew the variety of attacks possible, it is really like a sword. Lynn Thompson is an advertising genius, after...

    Push Daggers

    I am a great fan of the push dagger. Would prefer it to almost any knife for defensive use, though would not carry it for legal concerns. i owned a CS Safekeeper 2. Their new model of pushdagger have some refinements such as kraton over the part of the hilt that makes contact with your fingers...

    EDC suggestions?

    I have nothing but good to say about the Kershaw Leek. Fast as an auto, thin and light and a narrow profile, models available with better than the usual 440c. It's the best I've found for EDC for myself. Got it for my wife (a rainbow finished one, to match a zippo gave her previously) but...

    Kenpo Going to Boxingmatch

    Whatever it takes, make a good defensive posture second nature (hands up, elbows guarding body, chin tucked, etc.) The Sweet Science. Many things you have to be doing with your body to be a good boxer. That's what I find so intriguing, to practice till these fundamentals are automatic. All the...

    The MT Side Knee in clinch

    Yeah, roundhouse knee, I've never felt one, but in my bagwork it seemed really puny. In that instructional Bas nailed his training partner full force with it, to show lack of effect. I guess I'm looking for someone who uses it tell me some good things about it. It's used all the time in MMA...

    need advice on crosstraining

    For your ground stuff and controlling the body, maybe look into submission wrestling. I think it might be a great compliment to your Krav Maga. A lot of BJJ is defensive, working for position before applying submission, use of the guard, and such. Sub Wrestling seems more direct and offensive...

    The Spear as defensive weapon

    Just curious if anyone here trains spear fighting techniques. The Cold Steel demo/instructional was very impressive to me and I plan to pick up an Assegai, or maybe the Atlanta Cutlery Zulu, very soon and develop skills with it. I have always been interested in edged weaponry, and thought about...

    Knife you like best

    Favorite for defense or combat use is the push dagger, the CS Safekeeper II fixed and folder both have uses and appropriate times to carry I am a huge fan of the Kershaw Leek, I highly reccomend it (can be had in better steel than 440c if that is a concern). my perfect EDC knife.

    The MT Side Knee in clinch

    I was just curious on opinions of this strike from MT and MMA guys. I never thought it looked very effective. Bas denounces it in his Extreme Pancrase series as powerless, and advocates instead, an angled but linear knee strike. I believe this movement (ankle following, in line with kneecap)...

    Hi
