    What is the cheapest meat you can buy? Deer balls. There under a buck

    Hello - My Kti just turned up. I'm a fencer and work on my own 99% of the time so thought it a good idea to have one for "work" - and it will be handy for hunting too.

    For those of you farming etc - how do you carry your PLB "everyday". I know lots of folk in farming wear a knife belt as standard clobber (I used to) , but I don't now as it conflicts with the nailbag. However my nailbag is an on again/off again thing too.

    Any thoughts ??

    Possibly use the arm pouch that comes with it, although I guess that could be a bit challenging when fencing.

    Just my 5 cents ..... Check the integrity of the arm pouch I bought one maybe 4 years ago didn't come with arm pouch just the case with belt loop, I slipped down a bank on a solo trip and the belt loop ripped clean open on a tree, I only got bruises and a wake up but got to watch the beacon (still in case carry on down hill like a rocket into bush and spent what felt like ages looking for it (needed a locator beacon locating beacon)now I try to carry in my chest pocket when possible a challenge in the warmest months.

    As I said have never seen the arm pouch but just food for thought.

    Try army navy store for Osprey carrying vest pouches. This one is ex UK Army, with orange added.

    My KTI, with its zip-up clamshell protector, fits snug into one of the Osprey's AP Grenade pouches.

    A fencer will have BICEPS, they seem to be intended for people with very skinny arms unless they have changed the style since I ordered mine a few years ago.

    Nooooooooooooo it isn't.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Can't recommend these guys enough. Retailer is in Aus but the beacons can be registered here. The seller is really helpful and has very good customer service.

    Neither. Got mine from my brother in law who retired from the UK army.

    Try evilbay.

    Elio's Gunshop in Dunedin had one hanging at back of the shop a fortnight ago, if that is of use to you.

    I'm a skinny fencer (slim if you're being nice) but even slim can fool people sometimes (like the 19 year old who tried me on with a crush handshake the other day - turned the tables on him and later saw him nursing it haha)

    The armband just isn't suitable for the work I do. I'll keep thinking.
