    Legion of Frontiersmen

    I had some dealings with them some years ago. They had a volunteer role then which was similar to the FANYS but without the parachuting into occupied Europe bit! Very nice chaps but couldn't help thinking they were paramilitary Masons.

    Bison Bushcraft Garron Pack

    I have one. Very well made, sort of a Munro in size with well appointed leather and canvas. I found the brass rings for side storage draw strings not to my taste so they are in the drawer now. Now working up to ditching the Rush 24 and carrying a bit less stuff about.

    Well ladies I bow to your better knowledge. It's just that my work 308 sniper rifle shoots around 1 MOA at 100 metres which works out at a bit bigger than 15 inches so perhaps they were very large heads. Bearing in mind that 308 is subsonic below 1000m I would think torso shots were a better...

    Instructor - client ratio, on courses. Your thoughts?

    Depends on what is being taught and the risk element involved. Competence also plays a part, partial experience and risk perhaps 1-3, complete beginners high risk 1-1. I would say that I find it difficult to do more than 1-6 for instruction and supervision on my own. If the instruction requires...

    little bowie in stainless

    Much as I am keen on the modern style of knife making, that takes me back to scout knives with a touch of Randall. Excellent work.
