Check here for clarification on my bracelets. I got sick of having to list these things in my auctions, so thought it would be a good idea to make a webpage about it.
This month's tip: Your solution for personal defense -- the Hideaway Knife!Check out Hideawayknife.com. I have purchased two of these knives for personal use and they are excellent. I own one finished by Mick Strider and the standard Utility model. The carry options are almost countless. Read through all the links on their webpage. I think you will be at least as impressed as I was. I have no affiliation with them other than as a satisfied customer. If you would like your new knife skinned, I will also provide this service. Please send me an email stating what color you would like and I will let you know if it is available. The service is $15.00 and all proceeds go toward purchase of military supplies and equipment to augment my personal gear. This includes medical supplies, armor and the like.
Read about this idiot on ebay I just had to deal with...
Last month's tip: How to disassemble the Colt 1903 Pocket Pistol
Recently, I was trying to find instructions on the web on how to disassemble the Colt 1903 pocket pistol for cleaning. I ran across some wonderful individual that would have had me pay $6.00 for an ebook -- for information that should be free. I don't think so... (And no...I didn't pay for his stupid ebook.) So here it is...free.
First and foremost, MAKE SURE THE WEAPON IS UNLOADED!!! Remove the magazine, pull the slide back, and lock it in place with the slide lock.
Next, double-check to make sure the weapon is not loaded.
Once you are satisfied that the weapon is unloaded, take note of the arrow on the end of the slide. You will need to pull the slide back until the arrow is lined up even with the frame of the weapon.
Next, rotate the barrel 90 degrees counter-clockwise (viewing from the front of the weapon). You may need to try several times to make sure it is lined up before it will turn.
Once you've done this, CAREFULLY allow the slide to come forward while maintaining a firm grasp on it...beware the recoil spring!
To reassemble, reverse the steps.
Easy enough and you didn't have to pay for the idiot's ebook. Neat, huh? :-)
