Schrade SCHF 42D review and other things in the queue

I’m back after a long break, caused by the fact I just moved on another continent, presenting some gear that has piled up on me over the time waiting to be tested and reviewed.

Survival Fun With Gun(s)

We traveled to Nevada to visit a facebook friend, bushcrafter, hiker, camper… Maciek.
I’ve always known that firearms can be important survival tools but, like many others, I never really had the chance to practice shooting, gun safety and maintenance as much as I should.

spent bullets We went to the local range to have a bit of productive fun with a Remington 870 12 gauge shotgun, Taurus Judge Public Defender .45 LC/.410, .45 ACP XD-S Springfield, a little .38 special revolver and some 9mm pistols. We also shot a .22 LR semi auto rifle and a .223 AR-15 but by that time the wind was so bad, it was impossible to film. It literally sanded our faces and filled our eyes and noses with mud.

Good times.
