    I had a feeling you were gonna try a buckaroo for my lil carver...... :bounce:
    If it helps with the wrong side part, I am left handed, so it'll be worn on that side ;)

    Actually, I think thats why the strap on those is usually on the spine/edge of the sheath, so they are 100% reversable and ambi.. :)

    Well, thankfully for you, my skin isn't that thick, and I am not vindictive!! I also realized that the pics I was looking at had the strap on one side, BUT, when I started looking at more pics (after your comment), the majority surely are attached at the spine. That's what I get for looking at one site. I generally look at a bunch of different sites, but I was tired that night, and was apparently lazy. ;)

    Nah, I wouldn't do that. I would send you a package with a DVD video in it of me giving it to mechanic buddy to scrape gaskets with. ;)

    The pocket kit contents;

    A few simple items for now.
    • CSC
    • Electrical tape(need to find some that os 3/8" wide instead of 1/2", when I got the tins I didn't realize that the tape I have is too wide to fit a roll on its side in there...)
    • paper clips
    • a couple rubber bands
    • medium and micro safety pins
    • medium and mini cotter pins
    • ~6” of medium gauge copper wire
    • a spare hair tie bungie
    Will add or subtract things as my needs change over the next few weeks, where I can see what I use and don't use.

    Also, a few times putting the lid on and taking it off, against the pressure of the home made seal, had tweaked and loosened the top rolled rim that I sanded down. Apparently I almost sanded it all the way through(actually did on one side it seems) and the pressure has loosened it all the way around. It pulled right off real easy. Doesn't hurt anything, might actually seal better now as the thinner edge will press further into the silicone(in theory).

    or in that case, gasket scraping tool ;)

    Come to think of it, I could use it for that... ;) Heaven knows some of my knives have done a lot of that..

    I'm actually more ambidextrous than anything, I can do anything with either hand but generally easier left handed.

    Yeah, either hand... More natural and more comfortable to shoot left handed, but I am more accurate right handed. Noticeably more accurate right handed with a rifle, but a LOT more accurate right handed with hand guns.... Something to do with my dominant eye being opposite what my (somewhat)dominant hand is... :rolleyes:

    But I still carry left side because as I said its more natural, don't have to think about it as much, I just react with that side faster.

    So if anyone plans on doing anything where I might shoot at them, don't give me time to swap the gun to my right hand after I draw ;) ;) :rolleyes_revamped:

    One cool thing that results from this is that I am pretty good dual wielding, hip shooting with both hands at the same time ;) :D

    :cool:

    Yeah, I am right handed, but left eye dominant, so I have learned to shoot guns sighted for either shooter. While I am not quite as good manipulating with my left, I can do far better than most "righties" with shooting left handed. It confuses the hell out of my buddies when they grab my pistols (particularly bad). ;)
