    Skunkworks, can you please tell me more about the fiber optic sights on the P3AT? they look intense to say the least!! Home made? Purchased? How well do they improve the aim and how are they secured?

    Would really like to hear the details!

    Thanks and God Bless

    I too like Benchmades and like AOs. I carry Benchmade Apparition as EDC. In situations needing backup, I have a SOG Trident.

    Lawrence,

    I see Mike still posting on bladeforums ocassionally, and on our site as well when he has time.

    He travels to the shows on weekends, and still trains regularly with the big boys.

    Yeah, Spyderco's G10 scales feel excellent. I love 'em!

    But for quickness, nothing really beats a waved knife.
    I have the Delica 4 Wave, and would like the larger Endura 4 Wave.

    Look around for the video of the guy opening one right from his pocket. It literally is as quick to open as simply drawing it from the pocket. Quicker even than an automatic, because an auto has to be drawn, and then the button pressed, and sometimes there's even a safety lock to disengage, if I'm not mistaken.

    Hey Gideon, the P3AT sights are modified from a TruGlo shotgun set. They are self adhesive. I just cleaned up the slide really well with mineral spirits and they have stayed in place for about 8 months and hundreds of rounds. They aren't more accurate at all, but they are highly visible and make quick sighting easier. I do believe it is mostly a psychological benefit for a belly gun like the P3AT though. PM me if you want to know more "how-to" I don't want to hijack the thread.
    I'll keep my freedom, my liberty, and my guns. You can keep the change.

    I carry a Benchmade 710 plain edge folder in my pocket and a CRKT Polkowski Companion just rear of strong side hip IWB.
    The D2 blade on the BM holds an edge better than 440C, 154CM or AUS-8 and I trust the Axis lock much more than liner locks. Just my personal preference.

    My EDC is a Strider PT.
    It's a small folder, but it cuts and handles like a larger knife. I've used it hard and it's been able to deal with everything that I throw at it.
    They are a bit pricey, but I have to admit that it's an awesome knife!

    I'm partial to D2 steel, but have to admit that the S30V steel of the Strider PT is quite impressive...

    Regards,
    Mike

    I carry two Emerson Karambits and one Spyderco Gunting

    Bottom two Karambits


    Bottom Gunting, top two are newer versions of the tool nicknamed LLC and are pre-production USMC of the civilian version.


    Also carry sometimes an Emerson Commander

    I EDC the Benchmade 9100 AutoStryker.

    http://www.benchmade.com/products/pr...spx?model=9100

    Actually had about 4 of them issued/given to me while in Iraq. Great knife!
    Now looking to get a 551 Griptillion. Pretty affordable compared to the AutoStryker.

    My Karambit looks almost exactly like the Emerson with out the wave. I bought it for my sister but it was too big for her hands so she got my other folder and this is now my carry knife. Man now I want the wave function I currently have to flick mine open. $$$$! The S&W is surprisingly a good Knife for $22
