The Tomahawk – Worthwhile Tool to Consider

Good tools can make the difference between life and death. Are you preparing with the best?

If you want a good tool for those times or tasks that a good fixed blade knife or multi-tool just don’t measure up, you may want to consider the good, old fashioned tomahawk.  Especially the Pipe or Trail Hawk by Cold Steel as prepared and sold by the Great Lake Survival Company.  Here’s just two reasons that you may want to mull over if you don’t already have one.

  • It’s a superb tool that provides the leverage necessary for performing various tasks whether or not one uses it for a hammer, skinning tool, or for forming stakes, building shelter frames, natural snowshoe frames, etc.
  • If needs be, if used as a last resort weapon, it has a much better reach than a knife, and has a pyschological ‘edge’ as well.

DTG staff gets their ‘hawks exclusively from Great Lake Survival Company www.greatlakesurvival.com.  The folks there sell several different types…

Magpul Announces Their Move

The Patriot Perspective

From Magpul:

Magpul Industries announced today that it is relocating its operations to Wyoming and Texas.

The company is relocating manufacturing, distribution and shipping operations to Cheyenne, Wyoming. Magpul is leasing a 58,000 square foot manufacturing and distribution facility during the construction of a 100,000 square foot build-to-suit facility in the Cheyenne Business Parkway. The Wyoming relocation is being completed with support from Governor Matt Mead, the Wyoming Business Council and Cheyenne LEADS.

Magpul is moving its corporate headquarters to Texas. Three North Central Texas sites are under final consideration, and the transition to the Texas headquarters will begin as soon as the facility is selected. The Texas relocation is being accomplished with support from Governor Rick Perry and the Texas Economic Development Corporation.

Wyoming Governor Matt Mead welcomed them:

“Wyoming and Magpul are a great match. The state is looking to expand and diversify its economy. Bringing an…

More Amnesty Pushing 1/18/14

The Patriot Perspective

May as well date the post, since this stuff will be ongoing.

Carrot-faced crybaby earthworm John Boehner is “setting up an immigration debate” which is not a debate, but just a question of “how do we tell people to let home invaders stay on the couch and claim it as theirs”:

GOP leaders are finalizing plans for an open debate on immigration to be held by legislators at their late January closed-door strategy session in Cambridge, Md.

The debate will include a panel of legislators, an outside expert, and an open mic, allowing members to comment on a one-page set of “principles” that likely will be released at the event, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

There should be no “debate” or question of “principles” on how to create amnesty for criminals.  There is one answer – deport illegal aliens.  Deport them all, deport them wherever you…

The Big Question: To Conceal or Not to Conceal

Give Me Liberty

This is from Clash Daily.

This debate will keep going as long as we are still able to carry a firearm.

I have said this before I am grateful I live in Indiana as both open and concealed carry is legal.

I do both forms of carry that being said I concealed carry because I like to keep the bad guys guessing.

 

Every day it seems there are more stories of some of the 2A brethren pushing the envelope by open-carrying. The story usually grabs a headline. The picture tends to show a confrontation between a police officer and an openly carrying individual. Many online stories come complete with video and audio as friends record the event on their phones. The open carry faction of the gun rights movement demand what they believe to be a God given human right documented and guaranteed through our Second Amendment. They see…

Actors Who Are Pro Gun

Give Me Liberty

This is from Bullets First.

In la-la land when tend to think in terms of Liberals and Conservatives, we find that Liberals are far and away more numerous in the acting profession than Conservatives.  That seems pretty clear, though I feel many right leaners tend to stay quiet about their views in order to have a career and I won’t fault them for that.

But here is the funny thing, the right to keep and bear arms is not a Liberal v Conservative issue (though it often falls that way), it is a control v freedom issue and many of my friends who are center left have come to embrace gun ownership as part of the American identity.  While we may not agree on healthcare, taxes or any other big government socialist like agenda’s we come together on the 2nd Amendment.

It is the notion of freedom and…
