    Playing with the Saker I bought from @thepierced this evening. It was pretty sharp but I ran it over my Arkansas stone and stropped it. It's crazy sharp now. I love a scandi grind!

    PCP air rifles. My hand pump sprung a leak last weekend and with the ammo situation, I figured it would be a good investment if I want to do any volume of shooting in the future. I currently have a .177 cal Umarex Gauntlet and a .22 Crosman Marauder. They are accurate, and hard hitting and get a surprising number of shots per fill. They are tunable you can get anywhere from 20 to over 100 shots depending on how much power you have them set to. Both are bolt action repeaters with fully shrouded barrels, they're super quiet. They are both available in .25 also.

    You can find really good deals on the gauntlet right now, I think it was about $400 when they came out. I think you can find them from $180 to $220 right now. There are other good options for $150 or less right now, but none of them will be as quiet. It's kind of fun shopping for different types of pellets too. But you have to also consider that you have to buy a way to fill it in the budget. A bicycle type pump is about $50-150 and a lot of work. The cheapest decent compressor, the one I ordered is $280. You can also fill them from a scuba or scba tank if you dive or have a dive shop near by.

    Maxpedition mini for a fire kit. I should've gone with the condor sidekick though for more room. IMG_20201207_194141885.jpg

    Cold Steel 4-Max Scout.

    I wanted a solid folder for when I would be carrying an Izula, and this thing is a beast.

    That was the fun purchase.

    I had to buy a collection of pill grinders for my wife’s medications. Sadly, I don’t think they’ll help.

    As was pointed out to me by The Princess of Darkness as she scanned the credit card statement....."you have been busy on Amazon"...... they gave me a free "Prime" membership for two months so I have been using the hell out of it to get gear over from the US that eBay or normal Amazon wants a pound of flesh in shipping for. Flashlights, some battery cases and honestly other shyte I can't remember now....I will post it when it starts to arrive in January.

    I was only window shopping for ear buds after watching some videos on them but noticed these had a promotion on them. 60% off plus I had $3.50 in credit still. So I had to pull the trigger.. They got pretty good reviews also. Screenshot_20201230-155817.png Screenshot_20201230-160000.png

    I've needed a new smart battery charger for a while now. Corrosion in the cables and 20 year old tech had plagued my old one for some time.

    This came up in discussion on a K5 forum I'm on and had good reviews so I grabbed one.

    Also picked up the 10' extension for the cables and stuffed it all in a HF box i had laying around.
