I intend to go on the world's slowest killing spree with a crossbow.

Those optics look good actually, and I'm surprised that FT isn't filled with iffy airsoft bollocks. Mind you, with the exception of the stock (Magpul CTR) and grip (FAB Defence folder) most of the mall ninja nonsense on my bows are Chinese airsoft gear. I've got an authentic Magpul angled forend grip, and a knock off, and the difference is negligible. Sure, if I was using it professionally, I'd go for the authentic, but for most of us they're perfectly good. My Daniels defence buffer tube swivel point broke just carrying the thing on my shoulder, yet the Chinese replica is still going strong after a year or so. $50 versus $5. Meh.

Oh, and the DD stockist who sold me that swivel said that because I used it on a crossbow and not an AR, I wasn't using it for it's stated purpose (despite most parts of the thing bring out of the AR parts bin), and therefore invalidated my warranty. Granted, that bow is seriously heavy, but so is a fully loaded DMR AR, so I'd have been much more upset had it failed whilst trying to ventilate some insurgents instead of shooting at a target.

That kid in Spain gave it the good old college try.

Screw the warranty, it wont matter when the inevitable zombie apocalypse comes and Daryl seems to have the right idea.

FYI, Creekwater here is just trying to make himself feel better for overpaying for a Croatian service pistol with the word "Springfield" written on it in sharpie.



The XD platform is awesome. The lineup makes me outright ignore most offerings even from the venerable glock. And as far as I can tell most handguns with a polymer frame to save weight of any level of quality of finish, coatings, features and craftmanship. fall around the $450-$600 range.

Anything more than that, and you're over paying.

The XD's certainly have the best features out of anything in the market right now at the price. and since the release of the XD-M as a subcompact. someone could probably find the one I got at the lower end of that.

I'd nearly consider it a steal.

Everything on my Colt M4 is legit, which is mostly the reason I got it.

Knights Armament Company Rear iron sight and quad rail came on it factory. alone about $600. Then all the magpul goodies i'v thrown on it since and about 10 30rnd PMAGS and a few steelies, and a stage 2 trigger.

It's kind of embarrassing.....as it spends most of the time in the closet collecting dust.

BUT! Your dream girl Katie is about to settle on some land she keeps telling me, from a passed away relative supposedly left her about 200 acres in south georgia. but it's been tied up in court for a few years.

But once she gets it....She'll let me basically be the Sasquatch that haunts her woods.

Hi guys another knife-newbie from Germany here.
I would like to order a few knives on fasttech:
https://www.fasttech.com/products/3666602
https://www.fasttech.com/products/2132001
https://www.fasttech.com/products/1646105
https://www.fasttech.com/products/1557100
https://www.fasttech.com/products/3666603
Are those legal to import for Germany? Or will i be fucked by our customs if I try?

According to horst.the.worst's list (thanks btw.), i think it should be fine, but I'm not sure :/
Did anyone here have any experience with importing knives to Merkelland and dealing with customs?

The SRM 6020RUC-SA (https://www.fasttech.com/products/2132001) is a sweet little slipjoint , a H03 with scales and a graphic on the side, so should be O.K.
The Sanrenmu 9054MUC-GP (https://www.fasttech.com/products/1646105) uses the liners as a locking device - Detente lock - acts like a slip joint but the hole in the blade matches up to the shaped liners and scales to allow something to pass through and effectively lock the blade, 550 Paeacord works just fine. - Legal ? don't know, I have several but they are a couple of mm over our laws allow in the U.K. so I end up taking a different knife out and about, lovely knife though.
The Sanrenmu GB4-913P (https://www.fasttech.com/products/1557100) I don't have one so can't really comment
The C156 Outdoor Survival Stainless Steel Folding Knife (https://www.fasttech.com/products/3666603) is a clone of a Spyderco Brad Southard folder. The one that I have (not bought from FastTech) is very well made complete with ball bearing pivot. It cost a few dollars more than this one so this one might not be as well made. There is a review which I'm sure you've read, shows the C156 in a good light.
