I was in the market for a new knife about the time that issue exploded, went with a Made in the USA Kershaw Blur instead of a BK when their actions and political contributions came to light.


You saved some money and got an excellent knife, its my favorite kershaw except for my knockout, but I broke the pocket clip on the knockout so the blur is my carry knife again.

I haven't heard about the Benchmade deal. My dad designs knives for Boker and WE, and although they are made in China they are pretty good quality.

If you want a Made in Tallahassee custom knife, he moved to town in December and has his shop set up now.

Brad Zinker if you want to look him up. He's a member of the Knifemaker's Guild.

I believe a bazooka would fall under the National Firearms Act - Destructive Device category so once you locate and pay for it, simply complete the Form 4/fingerprints, pay your for the tax stamp(s) and wait somewhere between 8 - 16 months to get your tax stamp and it will be yours all nice and legal. I think you also have to have a stamp for each round so it is a rich man's game for the most part. Surprise, they are just like machine guns (i.e. full automatic), short barreled rifles and shotguns and suppressors, its all legal to own and even affordable relatively speaking especially if you build your own GASP! Or you could drive down to Mexico or up to Chicago pick one up and if you survive the cartel connection hope you don't get caught, don't think for a minute they are not out there both legal and "imported".

Personally I think AT&F should be a convenience store not a government agency but YMMV...

C'mon guys, we're better than this. One guy posts a deal on some fishing gear and you degrade the forum with politics. If you want to talk politics, there are other sites for that. Lets keep this one about fishing.

UGADAWG, you are right and I am so wrong. I'm saying this without a hint of irony or snark. Was attempting humor in my earlier post, but neglected to consider how very tribal American society is now. Henceforth, my posts on this fishing website will be about...FISHING.

Thanks for the reality check.

re: benchmade. If you haven't carried an OTF microtech, you are missing out. hands down the best every day knife design out there.

I think benchmade is in a no win situation choosing to setup shop/remain in the PWN. They can only donate to liberals or remain on the sidelines without input into local, state, or national decisions.
