christain: Andi, You ever make it as far as Texas? Me 'n you really need to sit down, have a few, and talk really deeply. :D... (rofl) Nov 18, 2019 4:38:21 GMT
christain: :D..... (rofl) Nov 18, 2019 4:35:24 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: I guess it needs at least 3 bands for the long handle, and another one for the seax... Nov 18, 2019 4:34:04 GMT
christain: Some flat-black spray paint on the blade, grip band on that long-a** handle...Tactical Elf Sword. ;)..... (rofl) Nov 18, 2019 4:31:59 GMT
christain: Hell, Andi---lebleu might like it!... :D Nov 18, 2019 4:29:19 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: (rofl) Nov 18, 2019 4:25:53 GMT
christain: Yes Sir, exquisite indeed. Now, when Andi tells you it needs grip band..... tell him to go.... :o......(rofl)... Nov 18, 2019 4:18:52 GMT *
lebleuchevalier: Thanks! Nov 18, 2019 3:22:43 GMT
rannh1: Lebleuchevalier, bud, that blade by Driggers is exquisite :D Congratulations Nov 18, 2019 1:19:31 GMT
lebleuchevalier: Howdy! Nov 17, 2019 16:20:24 GMT
nerdthenord: Mornings folks. Nov 17, 2019 13:08:07 GMT
redscorpion: I have become and expert in Chink-Click-Pow style as taught by the CZ school of Gun-Fu. Nov 17, 2019 3:59:57 GMT
lebleuchevalier: Red, my method is to call Stelio Kontos when there is a problem. Nov 17, 2019 3:25:29 GMT
redscorpion: The best approach is mixed MA- learn karate to fight with the hands, Thai boxing to fight with the feet and legs, learn Brazilian JJ for the ground, and Western boxing and wrestling when it comes to fists and grapples. Then by a gun. Nov 17, 2019 3:21:42 GMT
redscorpion: I've been studying Filipino MA through an old Army bud of mine (until I blew my knee out). It's good for what it is, but it's not the ultimate fighting style. It's a great academic study,and a good tool to have in my bag of tricks. Nov 17, 2019 3:19:04 GMT
nerdthenord: That's awesome. One of my female friends (who I had a huge crush on until she politely turned me down last year. We are still good friends though) is half Filipino so I am interested in their stuff. Nov 17, 2019 2:31:23 GMT
lebleuchevalier: Actually, I did some dry runs with this tonight and it thrusts remarkably well. Nov 17, 2019 2:26:15 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Thrusting with it may be challenging. :D Nov 17, 2019 2:25:17 GMT
lebleuchevalier: If you're referring to that shameless showoff, Legolas, he had two knives strapped to his back. And that elephant (Tolkien called them oliphants) only counted as one! Nov 17, 2019 2:24:48 GMT
christain: And yes, the design is incredible! 8-) Nov 17, 2019 2:23:38 GMT
