Welcome. If you have questions, please ask. There are a lot of people here ready to help. If you need help on bayonets. Go to bayonetpoints, find the number of the bayonet you want to study, then go to the bottom of the page and click the same number. Here's the link: http://www.usmilitaryknives.com/bayonet_points.htm

Note the comments; you are off to a good start. Think about that for a moment and about how many knives they have (a lot). So now contemplate how many more you will have to get to be able to say "you are off to a good start" to the next new member.

It's addictive, even when you wonder if you may have enough; you can never have enough.

Now go out and get the books and learn, you are on your way.

Man, I am missing Gary... I saw my copy of his last book the other day and thought about him and the loss to his family and the community.

 

Mine is 25 of 25 from the limited signed run. I told him if I could not have the first I wanted the last.

Totally agree with Jeremy69. I think we all miss Gary. I have book 3 of 25, and the biggest surprise I got it was on the Introduction page i. My name was the last one on the bottom of the page. What a surprise, and an honor. Yes, Gary's input is truly missed. SKIP

Since we're taking roll call, mine is 9/25. I'm sorry for those who didn't have the pleasure of Gary's presence.
