Thanx a lot yall. I also make knives and stuff out of leather. I hope to post some stuff soon. If anybody needs anything along those lines, hit me up.
I'm bored. I can make sheaths, Buttcuffs, Holsters, even Lighter covers.
The Deer around here seem to have gone nocturnal, I hate that. Now is the time we start changing things up. I sleep in and start my hunt about 10 AM and hunt till about 3 PM. That's when the bigg'ns move. When it's legal anyway.
We have a BIG problem with pigs. When Deer season is over, we hunt pigs at night over bait. You talk about FUN. And corn fed pigs are the best meat on the ranch.
Ya just missed a collar deal. I get tired of trying to find collar's I like. Had one made in a saddle shop in Kalispell, Mont years ago that I loved. So stopped at a saddle shop in Redmond, Ore last week and the guy is making me two new one's.
Latidgo leather outside and something thinner inside. Smooth side out inside and out. Going to glue them and sew the edges with brass D ring and buckle. No rivits in there. Boy I hate rivits other than the name tags.
I mostly just give stuff away. The last knife I sold, I ended up making about 2 dollars an hour. LOL
So I give it to friends and family. There's no way I can make any money on this stuff or it would never sell. I've seen stuff like mine so ugly I wouldn't take it to a dog fight, selling for hundreds of dollars. I just couldn't do that. That's why I started makin' 'em is to supply folks with custom quality for a cheap price. Normally what I do is, charge twice the cost, which means I can sell 'em for $50-$75. I made a friend of mine a butt cuff for his rifle that had a cheek pad on the left and a bullet holder on the right. I made one for my wife that had a 3 bullet holder and a small sheath built into the right side as well, for a small fixed blad knife. Turne out pretty cool.
I am Trevor Lawrence from Central London. I joined the group not long ago, but waited to make my introduction until I'd had a chance to read more posts and get a better feel for the group. I have been happy to see that not only is the forum quite active, but that the members seem quite diverse in their practice, as this leads to very interesting discussions. I appreciate what appears to be a general policy of courtesy mixed with a healthy shot of straight-talk.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
