My Style II
The things I like. Stuff I would wear or own. This will also include those things that I find interesting, artistic, cutting edge, useful or just cool. Special interest will be paid to those products that are affordable, environmentally friendly, or are innovative.

Randy Doucette's Jekel. With a unique Wharncliff / Cleaver combination blade this is a wonderfully unique large knife that can take care of business. The blade opens smooth as butter with either of the Dual Thumb Studs. This knife will fit your hand like a glove. The handles are beautiful Red G-10 that are precision fitted to the thick Titanum Frame. The bolsters are thick Matte Finished Titanium that have been contoured for a super feel when the knife is held.

Marlin 1985 GS The Marlin 1985GS is a lever-action .45/70 carbine that can take on any kind of game and any kind of weather. This stainless steel 4 shot has an 18½-inch barrel with an overall length of just 37 inches. It weighs 7 pounds, and the average retail price is about $660. This is big game-dropping power in a short, weatherproof gun; and it’s got “survival in bear country” written all over it.
Benelli Nova Pump Tactical This well-made tactical shotgun can handle everything from light 2¾-inch load to 3½-inch magnum loads. My only beef: It only holds 5 shells. The model with the 18½-inch barrel weighs 7.2 pounds. This gun ranges from $400 to $600, depending on which model you choose.
RIFLES Bushmaster AR-15 Active military, former military and civilians alike love this widely available version of the M-4. The Bushmaster AR-15 rifle shoots both 5.56mm and .223-caliber rounds. The price starts at $1,200 and goes on up, if you can find them. Thanks to a number of aluminum and synthetic parts, its empty weight is just 7.56 pounds. If the 30-round magazine doesn’t get the job done, you’ve got bigger problems than a single rifle can handle.
The Tactical Defender Pen is made of aircraft aluminum, writes in black ink (naturally), accepts Parker or Fisher refills, and can be used upside down or underwater. Its crown can be used as a glass breaker, or ... as a DNA catcher. The idea is that if you jab an attacker with the crown of the pen, it will retain a sample of their DNA for later identification, there’s also a handcuff key hidden underneath the crown.
You can now buy an UZI for $25 ... but it's a pen
