It’s probably safe to assume that most folks who like knives aren’t experts on knives. I’m in that camp. Nevertheless, I’m going to share what I look for in a survival knife based on my opinion (as bad as that may be).
The camera setup I use to record my shooting sports activities is relatively simple. It’s a GoPro attached to my hearing protection. It works. At least for the time being.
A red dot on a pistol is not necessarily a good idea, but that doesn’t mean a dot is only then an accessory for recreational purposes. Given that one of its benefits is a reduced marksmanship learning curve, maybe we should consider it as a training aid.
It pains me to admit it, but putting a red dot on a pistol isn’t for everybody or for every pistol. There are undeniable advantages to pistol mounted optics, but those advantages come with conditions that may make putting one on a pistol a nonstarter.
Regular preventive maintenance is critical to preserve firearms and to keep them running well. The principles are universal: clean and lubricate. The application of the principles are personal and biased.
Trying things outside of our comfort zone can provide a different perspective which can deepen our understanding and appreciation. I think this applies to shooting as well and my recent competitive shooting shenanigans appear to confirm that.
