    Knives? Thrown?

    Ah well,
    Since when did hobbies have to be logical.


    I did have a throwing star as a kid, and no tree was safe! But knives, what if you just hit the target with the handle instead of the blade? THUD

    Need some skill to get the sharp point where you want it, right?
    that makes no logic

    I think thats crap. Truthfully its a rights violation (RTBA) and i cant believe no one's done anything about that or the ******* govt is too tyrannical because we let it (like Thomas Jefferson said would happen)

    actually you can throw bout any knife and have it hit the target 90% of the time how you want it be it blade or handle first.........much easier to do with a balanced "throwing" knife than the average pocket knife but the same results can be had with both.......all it takes is technique and lots of practice as with most anything else...........but i still say a knife is way to important of a tool to be throwing away..... give me a good ol' John Browning designed 1911 45ACP any day......45 shells are cheap and more effective

    dont really see the difference.......whats the use of learning something if your not going to apply it........example the wife and i hunt in BFE where under good conditions it will take 2 hours to an ambulance to get to me and another 2 to get to a hospital.....in a bad set of circumstances its closer to 8 for them to get to me or my wife......this is with me hunting within 45 miles of the nearest hospital.....solution? got wind that the fire chief is going to be holding first responder classes out at the Hutterite colony soon......we told him the wife and i would like to attend and get certified.......after that ill likely take the 80 hour EMT course the next time the hospital offers it........ive got minimal interest in running on the ambulance but given what i and the wife like to do, be it hunting in BFE or chasing wildland fires, that bit of time out of our lives to learn the stuff can mean the difference between the life and deah of a loved one or someone else in the future.............knowledge is worth more than anything, but useless if it can not applied when needed, especially if after you gain the knowledge you do nothing to make sure your prepared to use it.....
