Been lucky enough over the last month to get out and go camping on 3 separate trips and I've been able to thump on some knives and I love cold steel and ka-bar's becker line( and ka-bar in general). I purchased a kukri machete, bowie bushman and rajah II from cold steel and a becker BK-9 and BK-2. You can find in-depth reviews from others on any of these knives and mine wouldn't be much different so I'll cut to the chase and say that you likely won't be disappointed in any of the above.

back in 2000 when I was about 16 I was out with my dad and we randomly pulled into a car lot to browse the wheres as we often did. we both laid eyes on a 1974 ford ranchero GT with a 400 CID v8 mated to a C6 automatic transmission that went into a 9inch rear axel with 3.50:1 gears. it wasn't mint but for $1300 the price was right. with my dad's help I was able to buy that car and as I type this it's sitting right outside. 11 years later I still own and drive that car almost daily and has served...

hey guys I went back out to the range and shot some more. I have more video but the jist of it is, CCI feeds fine but is harder to set off. the automatch doesn't feed as well from the top of the mag but that seems to be more related to spring pressure in the mag than the ammo. I did not see any light-stike issues with the other ammo except peters. most others just sucked. the kit ran so much better when I got up around 500-600 rounds through it. all issues has reduced dramatically but still exist....

Went out today to shoot my new .22 kit. As you'll see in the video I had problems with cycling with the low-end ammo and as I progressed into the better stuff it worked better but then I developed feeding issues, possibly a result of the kit being new with tight tolerances and it beginning to foul but I only fired about 200 rounds so I'm not convinced that fouling is much of a factor. The weather wasn't great or I would have stayed longer to try and diagnose the trouble. when I got home to clean...

My tactical solutions TSG-22 .22lr conversion unit for glock pistols arrived today. I'll be doing a full review soon. There have been others who have reported problems with their kits but I don't believe any have gotten to the 500 round break-in point that TSG recommends. Weather permitting I'll be going shooting monday and I'll be taking my video camera and doing a full video review.
