Ontario Knives RAT-3 Initial Review and Tree Falling

Ok, so I was going to go the the NAS Oceana Air Show today but it ended raining so we decided we weren't going to risk it and went to the SGK Knife and Gun Show instead. As we were looking around at the awesome weaponry (Kriss Vector, PS90, SCAR 17S, SOCOM 16, etc...) I found one knife I have been wanting for awhile; an Emerson Super 7. I waited for a few minutes for the guy working there to get a free minute and asked him about it, he said he wanted $200 for it so I thought about it while walking around the rest of the show. A few tables later (and by a few I mean most of the show) I saw another Emerson, this time a Mini CQC-7, and a Horseman, and a Commander... But the Mini-7 was awesome. I must have spent an hour deciding if I should buy it or not. I ended up not buying it because I didn't have that much cash to spare, but at the same table I came across quite a few knives I had been meaning to look at such as: Ontario RAT 3, 5, 7, and Izula II, and the Kabar ZK War Sword. The Kabar was one of those "Hey that would be cool to have" kinda things but I've been wanting a fixed blade for awhile and I hadn't seen the RAT-3 or Izula in person. The title probably gives away what I decided to get no?
As you can see I got the plain edge version,

Why I should never be filthy rich: A short story.

I would love to be rich, along with 99.99% of the rest of the world, but I would. Having more money than anything else would solve quite a lot of my problems, if anyone is stupid enough to hand me that amount of cash however, things will go very, very wrong. While I would absolutely love to be rich I should never be allowed to be, because after I go crazy and buy all the cool crap I want, set up an account large enough for me to live comfortably on only the interest, and build an Umbrella Corp. like secret underground bunker, I will resort to shenanigans. I got into an interesting conversation today concerning just that. What would I do with billionaire type cash? Well; you know those stories of men who went out and found a rare animal, possibly the last of it's kind just to kill? I would do something like that, I would hunt certain models of cars to extinction. If any of you ever get to know me you will find out that I absolutely despise one car in particular,

September 11th, 2001. Never forget.

May 1st, 2011: Osama Bin Laden was killed by an elite fighting force of men from DEVGRU, a force consisting of soldiers, sailors, and air crew members from all branches of the military, when they raided his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. That day the mastermind behind the worst terrorist attack on U.S soil was brought to a swift end, his body dumped into the ocean. It is sad that when the news of his death was announced many young people and teenagers searched "Who is Osama Bin Laden?" in Google and Yahoo. This is disturbing to me because these kids did not know who he was even though most were aged 13-17 (according to yahoo, so the numbers could very well be off.) which would put them 3-7, they should have learned this in school at the very least! I was 11, my brother was 8, and my sister was 1. We were in a motel room in Gulf Port, Mississippi when the attacks were broadcast, I remember watching the 2nd plane hit the tower and watching them both crumble to the ground. I remember the sickening feeling I felt when that happened and knowing that so many lives had just been extinguished in that one act of terror. Please, remember what happened on 9/11 and pass it on to the next generation. Support those who lost loved ones in the attacks, support the first responders and those who helped in the search and rescue of those trapped in the rubble. Many of the people who were on ground zero are now developing cancer from asbestos inhalation and the government has abandoned them. Support the soldiers who are off fighting in the middle east, thank a vet for their service. These people have given up many things to protect those they love and their countrymen and women, they deserve at the least our thanks.

Dragons Breath 12 Gauge, and a few random pictures

Ok, so at the same gun show that I picked the Ziplight up at I noticed some Dragons Breath rounds for sale, they were $5 a pop but what the heck, you only live once right?
 Yeah, I wrote on it with a sharpie and shot it.

Modding a Ziplight with an LED

So I sold my E2D LED Defender in order to buy a new toy, and while I was without a light I happened upon a mint new-in-box Ziplight, of course I had to have it. This was at a recent gun show and earlier that day I had happened upon a Camel lighter with a cool vintage look which I had spent $15 on, I didn't want to spend another $25 on the Ziplight when I saw it so I asked the guy if he would trade expecting him to want cash on top, but he said ok to a straight trade. I noticed after I bought it that the Ziplight was an earlier version and had some gay looking butterflies over a gloss gray case, and then my Fiance stole the case before I could get it on the grinder to remove them.
 Anyways, back to this Ziplight;
