Just got my redi-mag through the mail, installed it. It doesn't add as much weight as I thought it would have.

While I wait to get my tax return and buy another gun, I bought this cold steel gladius machete. They call it a machete but really its a cheap sword. Had black paint on it but I removed most of it.

So I made a big decision today. I've been carrying a Smith & Wesson Sigma in .40 caliber, complete with a trigger I modified myself, for my concealed carry weapon. However, since I don't fire it very often, the magazine spent a lot of time loaded, and I'd had it fail to feed a couple of times due to weak magazine springs, and had to dis-assemble my magazines and stretch the spring back out for it to resume proper functioning. I tried switching magazines occasionally and keeping about 10 instead of the max of 14 rounds in the magazine, but it didn't seem to help. After a couple of weeks being loaded, if I fired it, I'd inevitably have it fail to feed once or twice until I stretched the springs back out. I figured that if I was going to keep a pistol on me at all times, and I'm not going to shoot it a lot, a revolver would be better because I could keep it loaded without placing any pressure on spring-loaded mechanisms that could affect the weapon's ability to function properly if I ever did need to use it in an emergency situation. Not only that, but I happen to think revolvers look kind of sexy.

Anyway, I sold my .40 and bought a revolver chambered in .357 magnum. I like it. It's small enough to fit into my pocket easily, but still has a full size hand-grip so it fits my hand well. I picked up some .38 special rounds for it since none of the stores around here that were open on a Sunday had .357 magnum, and at least with the .38 special it doesn't kick very hard. It's got a ported barrel to help with the recoil as well. Overall I'm pretty happy with the switch.

Just picked up a Spyderco Tenacious. The build quality on it is amazing for it being a budget folder.

Although pocket knives hardly count as a "weapon" some would consider them as such I guess.

Been thinking of getting a spider-co knife for a while. A friend of mine really likes them, and they seem to be great tools. I'd consider it a weapon, and a pretty good one if used properly. Where'd you get yours, did you have to order it from them or can they be found in retail stores?

Amazon, $33.

It can be found in retail stores, and select sporting good stores. Heck, Wal-Mart may even have them.

I was apprehensive at first because the only other Spyderco I owned was a Centofante 3, and I wasn't impressed at all by it. But this Tenacious shattered any and all perceptions I had of Spyderco knives, fantastic utility blade.

Left and Right Fist. Don't need anything else. If someone wants to shoot me they can do it from behind whether I'm armed or not.

Got me a used pickup the other day so my wife and I both have a vehicle since we're both working now; an old '99 Dodge Dakota Sport, 3.9L V-6 magnum, 5 speed manual transmission. Today I got a gun rack for the back window. As it turns out, this small pickup is just "barely" wide enough to fit my AR in the rack. If I extend the buttstock, or if I'd moved it any further toward my seat, it would have put the rifle behind my seat, and I'd have had to lean it forward, which is uncomfortable for me. Haven't tried out my 30-06 or my shotgun yet, hopefully they all fit ok, but since the AR is what I carry around by default unless I'm hunting something that needs a bigger round, it's good that at least it fits.

Don't have a pickup, and Michigan frowns on rifle racks, but the minivan has a biometric pistol safe that's big enough to carry my MR BFR .500 Mag revolver :ninja:

I'm guessing this could be considered a weapon.

Got me a used police issue Glock 22 gen 3 today, can't wait to shoot it. By the looks of it and by what the gentleman that sold it to me said was it wasn't used much, just got wear on the outside from a paddle holster. Checked it out real good when I got home with it and it appears to be pretty mint on the inside.
