    NGD: Just Released 2019 Gibson SG Modern

    That one is long gone. I liked it, but I just had to go back to a Les Paul. I went through at least 10 SG's and I could never get comfortable with one. One was even a completely original 1969 SG Standard!

    TikTok and Twitter users are trying to cancel Metallic now.

    I think it's funny that people have jobs as "Influencers" and people actually listen to them. Where did all these influencers vast amount of knowledge come from? It just goes to show what a bunch of lemmings there are out there. What happened to free thought and learning things on your own...

    Join the RIND Army and Help my Hometown Band get to the Hollywood Bowl!

    89 views and not one reply to help a hard-working band get a break...no one likes the music or just a lack of interest in helping?

    Picking This Up on Thursday...

    Well, I picked up the M&P this morning and headed straight to the range. I am one happy camper! Shoots great and field strips in under 30 seconds...that is slide off and barrel removed. Goes back together just as fast! Nice trigger pull. Could be a little shorter, but nice and smooth once I...

    Picking This Up on Thursday...

    I've had a couple of Glocks. A 23C .40 Cal and a Glock 21 .45. I just didn't care for them. Guy did a takedown of the M&P on YouTube in less than a minute. Can't believe it will be that tough. We'll see how I like it on Friday at the range!

    How many Guitars (total) are in your collection, right now?

    Once upon a time about 2 years ago I had over 35. Now I have 3. I have a 1986 Korean Squier Strat, a Schecter PT Apocalypse and a Mini Strat. I haven't played any of them for nearly a year. The knife making hobby has taken over my love and my time...

    Still Doing the Knife Making and Getting Better...

    That's my first Filet knife. That one was tough to make because you have to grind the steel so thin. It has to be very flexible with a spring to it. That blade had to be heat treated prior to any grinding.

    Oh yea, I've watched a lot of videos by Red Beard Ops. He's really good, better than me for sure.

    Stock removal from flat steel. Cut, shaped, ground, heat treated and completely made from scratch by me. I tried forging, but I'm getting too old to swing a 2-pound hammer! I still have my small forge, anvil and hammers. I may make a small blade from time to time.

    I am, but there are more collectors and users there than makers. Not a lot of interaction or advice. I'm a member of Blade Forums and Knife Dogs. Both great places to get advice from professionals!
