    What Survival Knife should I get?

    you don't really need to lash your knife to the end of a stick to make a spear. sharpen a stick, fireharden the point if you want, and you have a spear and a knife. i'm partial to ESEE.

    Battle L.A.

    i liked it. thought I saw a tan izula on a vest in one scene. came home, started channel surfing, and saw a movie on sy-fy called "battle of l.a." aliens vs. humans, but i couldn't stand to watch 5 minutes of it.

    Anything goes three...The trifecta of stoopid goes on.

    that seemed like a valid offer, crowdog. dunno why you got a chicklet. besides, it'd make the other 24 that much more valuable.

    Book of Eli (knife)

    hell, i liked both of them. the road was better, though. shows there's more to it than preparation. right place, right time kind of thing. book of eli was mis-marketed i think.

    esee-6, given the blade limit. the 5's a good choice too. the bowdrill divot is a nice touch. i'd grab my junglas first though.

    Ever used your survival kit?

    i use my pocket kit pretty often, taking splinters out, starting fires, getting a bit of string or wire to play with... it comes in handy all the time, i haven't needed it in a survival situation, but i've become familiar with it, and been able to refine it to my needs.

    Red Dot Sights

    think i might get a primary to try out. i can't justify 400+ for a sight right now, hundred bucks could be doable.
