    Flitz is the go-to for all knife staining and rust.

    For blade cleaning - removing tape residue especially - Zippo fluid works best.

    Once you have those 2, you're mostly set as far as blade...

    Oddly, the tiny and now defunct company 'Honor Defense' came pretty close to perfection when it came to grip texture.

    This was tiny, poorly funded company too. All the more striking that they did...

    Thank you for the suggestion, I watched The Fourth Protocol last night on youtube:

    You're absolutely right, he's a total sociopath in this one.

    Dr. Kaufman; that look in Brosnan's eye. Scene begins 3:30

    Theres a later scene in Tomorrow Never Dies that also stuck with me. He's sneaking into the...

    Thats one of my biggest complaints with the Craig era Bonds - they've almost entirely done away with the James Bond gadgets, which were a hallmark of the entire franchise.

    Pierce Brosnan.

    No, never served in the military. Weapons, and especially emerging weapons technology, is simply something I'm interested in and spend a good bit of time researching. Which in this case seems to have...

    Replacing the 3x Grenadiers with 1x 'super grenadier' allows for those 2x Grenadiers to use the 'weight budget' of their previous 40mm system to carry other equipment and weapons for the squad (or...

    When has anyone deployed airbursting grenades against armored combatants?

    And why would they be less effective then impact initiated grenades/shells, given that airbursting increases the % of...

    Sadly, the MP9 5.7 is not (yet) a real thing. Weights are based on my weights of my empty 20 and 30rd B&T mags, and then inputting multiples of the 6.5g cartridge weight of 5.7x28. Thats 1/2 the...

    -Single shot: The issue with the 40x51 is recoil. 240-250g grenade (same as 40x53) @ 100ms. Whereas 40x46 is 185g @ 76ms. So you really can't go that lightweight for single shot, barring perhaps a...

    I think the earlier fielding of the Milkor missed several opportunities that diminished its usefulness:

    Another advantage of the PDW is the possibilities it opens up at the squad/platoon level for the Grenadier.

    The 5.7x28 has a ton of untapped potential.

    An EPR version of the projectile, loaded to Elites S4M pressure (27gr @ 2400fps) would be promising.

    Liberty makes a EPR (similar to M855A1) for the...

    The FN FsN is a wonderful pistol, my favorite one to take to the range. Trigger on mine is actually a pretty crisp single action; better then a glock trigger thats for sure, albeit no 1911.
