    cutco knives make hunting knives theyre not cheap but theyre good knives and have a lifetime warranty and if they ever go dull you send them back and theyll sharpen them. i used one that a guy in our hunting club had to gut and skin a deer and it would cut with ease

      I once owned a Randall Bird and Trout knife with a 3 1/2" blade and a stag handle that I thought highly of.
      It was destroyed in a house fire several years ago. It would be frightfully expensive today.

        I second the Cutco---drop point hunter is great. Also right up there is the Cold Steel Master Hunter, at least the old model I have is fine. There was one reviewed on this site a year or so ago---something to do with "Diamond"---Happy Myles had one and said it was the ultimate. Sorry I don't have full info.

          I have also seen the cutco knives in action and can vouch for their razor sharp edge, but Buck and Outdoor Edge make a decent knife as well. Also look into Havalon for scalpel-like sharpness and maximum packability, and I would recommend the Outdoor Edge Swing Blade to anyone for both field dressing and skinning.

            Look into a 4" drop point made by Benchmade and offered by the NRA Store. The knife is a Mel Pardue design with a very thick blade and Kraton handles. Will hold an edge for a good long while, if used properly. Cutco and Buck are also very good choices, and I would check on Knives of Alaska, also.

              The knife Country road indicated I mentioned is Diamond Blade. They make truly outstanding custom blades. The only drawback is they are very expensive, but to use for a lifetime and then hand down , is a gift of a lifetime. Dave Petzal, and Buckhunter love theirs. Kindest Regards

                Gerber makes great knives and they are not expensive still using my grandpas and dads gerbers. Old timer and schrade made some good ones a while ago fixed blades with a green rubber handle. Although I was told the company is now making those out of country and are not that good anymore.

                  I agree on Knives of Alaska and Outdoor Edge Knives.

                    I love knives made by Bob Legler. I have carried one for many years and often give them as gifts. They hold a great edge and can really take a beating. I also find them attractive. They aren't as cheap as a production knife, but I think they are underpriced for the quality. Customer service is also outstanding. I have the Beaumont.

                      Bubba, I've been curious too. This is our first and so far I like it during dry fire. We're going to see how it is at the range in a few days....

                      On 7/19, Milldawg mentioned he'd ordered a laser sight for his wife's Ruger LCP 380 and they were on sale at MidwayUSA. Well, that inspired me to order...

                      Good question. The old style Ruger LC9 has a very long trigger pull that's similar to that of a double action only revolver. I think it would be unlikely...

                      I know how you feel. There's no way I'b bet my life on a conceal carry without ever firing it. Just this morning, PigHuntress told me she'd been practicing...
