Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Jim Bowie's design

Here's a picture of one of my Bowie knives - a Hen and Rooster copy, Made in Toledo, Spain.

The bullwhip is a 12' custom built for me in Australia. I should have gotten a shorter one. An 8' whip would be easier to work.

Toledo's steel is famous.

I wanted to buy something while I was there a couple years ago but the prices were outrageous in the tourist areas so I passed.

I believe you, the best Spanish swords were made there.

The tour operator stopped us at a tourist trap and I just took a look at some of the stuff and walked out, some guy from Israel in the group bought some stuff way overpriced he claimed to be a "collector". really? and of course the wife did buy some jewelry.

Nobody knows what happened to the knife that Jim Bowie carried in the battle of the Alamo. It would be worth a fortune if someone had it and could prove it is the knife Bowie carried. It was probably picked up by some Mexican soldier at the Alamo.

This is my Bowie knife. It has a damascus blade and stag handle. It was made by Bear & Son Cutlery in Alabama. A guy in Wyoming made this custom sheath for me. It's beautifully worked.
