I remember last year kyle showing me some slag on that watch and wiping it off. I don't know why that is more heat resistant than normal glass, but I recently found out that the red hot embers from my grinder will pit my new watch, which has a glass face. Maybe because it's digital ?

Man, that poor Benchmade. On your next set of Hi-Lift mounts, send that Benchmade with the mounts and I'll disassemble the knife, service it, EdgePro it, and then send it back to you. That thing is fucked up.

You know , that little indent at the leading edge of the serration is really nice for pulling hooks out of fish when I cant reach the pliers on the boat. I just insert the blade into the hook , turn the hook upside down and let it rest in that groove and pull. . I know , just like nails on a chalk board... But it too keeps on going.... That crust up near the handle is a fine combination of Fish , elk blood , goose blood , white tail deer , Hmm , it might be a bio hazzard..

If he saw me scratching the slag off of one of those highlift mounts he mentions he might not want to service it....

I'm digging Kyle's Luminox, but I prefer being able to keep track of zulu time on my bezel. However, the rubber on mine is a little too G-shock. I'm not into the bling bling so this is my ideal watch. West System epoxy is the only thing I fear will damage the crystal, so the watch comes off when I break that stuff out.

Han, this outfit pressure test after re-sealing a Rolex case or do they otherwise warranty the water resistance?

I feel like I'm a little late to the party, but I've got to get into this blingfest. Here's a pic that I will call Two-Tone Bling.

Truth be told, I like the shotgun much more than the watch. My tastes have changed over the years. I'd prefer something in all stainless like a speedmaster or GMT.

OK, I've got to toss in my three cents as well. Here's my HK/OMEGA/Benchmade bling bling troika:



(Sorry, no shotgun lying around the shop.)

He sez they fit into his plan of evolution but they should be strictly 16 bore and 9x57.

Alright, as long as everybody's doing it.... I like to keep the BLING down here. I look for function.

Oh, those are my own homebrew top secret rounds.

It's a Browning Citori 20 gauge. I prefer the over / under to the side by side. I think it comes down to personal preference. When I look down the barrel of a side by side, it just doesn't look right to me. (Interesting side note: a friend of mine is left-eye dominant & right handed. He would miss every damn target / bird until he started shutting his left eye.)

Kyle, the shotgun has been used plenty. It's just that the shotgun is one of my most prized possessions, probably even more so than the Rover. I bring one of those single-use oiled cloth & wipe down immediately after hunting. I haven't hunted much in the last few years, but it has a good 10 years of use.

I like Steve's bling the best so far.
