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 Recent USMC KA-BAR with blade coating

Has anyone here removed the powdercoat they put on these now a days? Maybe I just need to use it more, and let that wear it off.

Why would you want/need to remove a protective coating?

My Mom's Brother, James, gave me the K Bar he used as a Marine in the Pacific during WWII...a couple weeks before I left for the RVN. I carried it most of the time there. It has the original finish and leather sheath. It does not look "new." Much better than a fucking bayonet. With a good knife, Vilchek pliers and a pair of Craftsman side cutters...I was able to access ammo, rats, "cook," and survive. Ever try to get into Military grade packaging of bulk small arms ammo...C rations, etc. ... without "tools?" Ever try and warm your C rats up in the middle of tigerland without pliers?

Your combat deployment was much tougher than mine. When returning from outside the wire I returned to good food, air conditioning and the ability to cominicate with home. Same bullets and bombs outside the wire though.
