Am I A Regular Guy?

One of the two patterns I collect is Case Mini Blackhorns.  (The other pattern is fish knives.)  They are a Case knife but are an inexpensive knife to collect.  Also there is a wide variety of them.  I have 25 of them, all different.  The ones I have date from 1988 to 2016.Does anyone else collect the Mini Blackhorns?Here are pictures of a few of mine.…See More

Didn't have an arsenal until today Charles, but the second thing I did after ordering a new gun today was to send a message to you about it, (yes we can still buy guns in CA, but just barely). Third thing I did was join this group. I'll try to keep you all informed about the obtrusive, abusive, and unconstitutional, (IMHO), gun laws we are having to live with here in CA. Believe me, I will be not only be buying weapons this year, I will also be buying ammo. The new law will allow a person to have no more than 500 rounds without a permit, so I plan to have 499 rounds in hand by 2018. I'll have to wait for the weapon I just ordered, it was out of stock, but It's expected to be in within a month. When it gets here I'll shout, (after the ten day waiting period that is).

The Second Amendment

  1. The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

What does that mean?  Well let us examine it and see.  It is a fairly simple and short statement.  It has two clauses or sections.  The second states that a particular right of…

I did buy knives at SMKW.

This one is a Rough Rider Mushroom knife RR1400.  (The nation is now safe.  If that mushroom that came up in my yard was just a scout for a full scale invasion, I now have the means to beat it back!)

 

I am going to save this wooden Case knife kit until my grandson,…

My visit to SMKW wouldn't have been complete without meeting the Knives Live guys.

Here is Josh and me in the Knives Live studio.  (It's a little bigger than a two holer.  I believe you could fit a three holer in it!)

 

And here is Jay.  (Like his T shirt!)…
