So far there are six of us, but I'm hoping we can get it to grow if you guys like it.

I had one exactly like that and carried it through grade school in the 1950s.  By junior high I had acquired a Barlow and carried that through high school.  About the time I went off to college the first time I had acquired a simple three bladed Swiss Army knife.  It had a long clip-point blade, a saw blade with a slotted screw-driver bit on the end, and a bottle/can opener thing.  That one got lost somewhere in Vietnam.  I've carried folders ever since I came back and shed the green clothes.

Good times.   I have one almost identical from circa 1972.   Carried it to school every time we had a cubscout meeting.    Running joke was our High school uniform was
Flannel, levis, hiking boots and a buck knife on the belt.   We had no problems.

Gentlemen, I've sent the targets out to the ones who requested them.  The match is based on the Blunt system, but at 25 yards.  The simulated distances are 200 and 300 yards.  I've also got targets made that simulate 500 and 600 yards, but they are almost exactly the same size as the 200 and 300 yard targets.  I would copy the targets on to fairly heavy weight tan paper, and the larger calibers may take more targets, with less shots per target.  I'd like to have monthly matches, but right now I just want your feedback on what you think of the course.  The directions are included for using the same targets for the pistol course. 

Good shooting and let me know how it goes!

Nostalgia will set in, and I will remember when....

On another Board a question was asked, "what is your oldest carry knife "

I replied


" I suppose I lost my fair share of knives

but here is one I've had since 1956, it was my carry knife then
and it was carried in SCHOOL (Coral Way Elementary) to my Cub Scout meetings.
Fact is I even lost this one once, and it was found and returned to the school's office Lost & Found.


THAT would not happen today! Imagin the hissy fit in today's education environment ".


And I still have it!

SO then, what is YOUR oldest carry knife ?
