    I have Warren sights, a 3.5# connector and some Magpul Glock 19 mags. Oh, and a Raven Concealment Eidolon holster.

    Received this little gem today;

    [​IMG]

    This will be replacing my 'dumb' on/off flash (because its way too old and has too high a trigger voltage for modern camera's). Its pretty sweet, has full manual mode, ettl and strobe! First impressions are great, time will tell if it holds up at all. But for 25 bucks shipped my expectations are not too high ;)

    Picked this little diddy from one of our suppliers to keep my coaching notebooks cleaner. I'm very impressed![​IMG]

    Delivered a few days ago and finally got home to open the packages.

    First off the package I was expecting from eng1nerd.

    The dueling Pranglers.

    [​IMG]

    Plus a little extra. Very cool Eng1nerd bead.

    [​IMG]

    Thanks man very appreciated.

    The second Prangler is for my BIL.


    Then the unexpected package. The day the first package arrived I asked my wife to check the mail. (I was stalking the tracking). Then there was a second package from SMAJ. I was a little confused to say the least but EDCF has a history of surprises.

    I was quite interested to see what was in the package.

    Finally got home today to check and man was I surprised. I had drooled over this when I first saw SMAJ post it and I can't believe it was sent to me. Thank you so much this is such a beautiful piece.

    Wow

    Experience is a cruel teacher. It gives a test before presenting the lesson.

    Is that a practice kit with 4 tumblers? Pretty cool. IDK what the first pic was.

    OK, not exactly in the mail, but bought and paid for in a shop (I like being there for my instant gratification shopping every so often;) )...

    My new toy, a ham radio for the car.

    Of course, I forgot to get the important things: coax cable and connectors. AAAARGH!:banghead:

    Specifically:
    • Coax for the antenna (a Diamond CR-8900) (Coax includes base mountings at one end, and a pl-259 connector on the other end of the cable),
    • an N type plug (to replace the 259 once the antenna has been sufficiently matched),
    • and a connector converter N-to-259 (to enable me to hook up the meter for checking the VSWR on the Diamond quad-band antenna).

    Those are on order from ML&S and should be with me on Tuesday. In the mean time, it's been unboxed, programmed, and reboxed, ready to be installed once the forgotten items arrive :D

    But seriously, I was just considering the Blademedic or Pocketpal but did you know their angles are 22.5°? That's too high for me. Even 22° is too high.

    If you're using a fixed-blade thick-bladed all-purpose field knife (e.g. a survival knife), yeah, those angles might be too high; I use mine on pocket folders, such as SAKs and multi-tools, and the angles seem just fine for those, to me, at any rate :) For larger fixed-blade knives, I have a diamond whetstone and honing oil.

    Thanks, I'll certainly try ;)

    I've also ordered (via evilbay) some 15-Amp twin cable for power from the battery to the boot (trunk) of the car, as the supplied cables look a little short for the purpose, and a Brodit air vent mounting bracket (their no 652348), upon which to screw or bolt the supplied separation kit mounting plate, into which will go the head unit from the radio :) Those should, all being well, arrive in the mail on Tuesday as well :)

    Some colorful 4" length cable key rings arrived in today's mail. I've never had a problem with them coming undone and doing a surprise scattering of edc paraphernalia, as I've heard the stories.

    I guess I may have mild OCD and occasionally check that they haven't loosened up and come unscrewed. I did put loctite on one of the first ones I ever bought years ago, but then couldn't get it undone and had to cut the cable with tin snips, lol...:frantic: :p
