The Wiccan Rede
Bide the Wiccan Laws we must In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust. Live and let live. Fairly take and fairly give. Cast the Circle thrice about To keep the evil spirits out. To bind the spell every time Let the spell be spake in rhyme. Soft of eye and light of touch, Speak little, listen much. Deosil go by the waxing moon, Chanting out the Witches' Rune. Widdershins go by the waning moon, Chanting out the baneful rune. When the Lady's moon is new, Kiss the hand to her, times two. When the moon rides at her peak, Then your heart's desire seek, Heed the North wind's mighty gale, Lock the door and drop the sail. When the wind comes from the South, Love will kiss thee on the mouth. When the wind blows from the West, Departed souls will have no rest. When the wind blows from the East, Expect the new and set the feast. Nine woods in the cauldron go, Burn them fast and burn them slow. Elder be the Lady's tree, Burn it not or cursed you'll be. When the Wheel begins to turn, Let the Beltane fires burn. When the Wheel has turned to Yule, Light the log and the Horned One rules. Heed ye Flower, Bush and Tree, By the Lady, blessed be. Where the rippling waters go, Cast a stone and truth you'll know. When ye have a true need, Hearken not to others' greed. With a fool no season spend, Lest ye be counted as his friend. Merry meet and merry part, Bright the cheeks and warm the heart. Mind the Threefold Law you should, Three times bad and three times good. When misfortune is enow, Wear the blue star on thy brow. True in Love ever be, Lest thy lover's false to thee. Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill: An ye harm none, do what ye will.

Hand pumps cost a couple hundred dollars and compressors start at 3000 and go up. So PCPs are for your serious air gunners or those like me you have problems with springers and CO2 that keep your buying CO2 cartridges over and over. There are refillable cartridges but they have not been adopted widely or at all. So if you are a avid airgunner you could spent a small fortune just on CO2 alone, up to twenty dollars a day just on CO2. At that pace you could buy a hand pump instead of ten days of CO2, or 160 days for a low end compressor. The PCPs history goes back further than Lewis and Clark where a PCP was used during the Louisiana Purchase Expedition
The celebrated expedition headed by Lewis and Clark (1804) carried a reservoir air gun, later believed to be the Girandoni Military Repeating Air rifle in Dr Robert Beeman's Collection. It held 22 round balls in a tubular magazine mounted on the side of the barrel. The butt stock served as the air reservoir and had a working pressure of 800 PSI. The rifle was said to be capable of 22 aimed shots in one minute. However, that air rifle is measured to have a rifled bore of .452" and a groove diameter 0.462".
Today's modern air guns are typically low-powered because of safety concerns and legal restrictions; however, high-powered designs are still used for hunting.
These air rifles can propel a pellet beyond 1100 ft/s (330 m/s), approximately the speed of sound, and produce a noise similar to a .22 caliber rimfire rifle. Using lead pellets, some current spring powered .177 pellet guns can break the sound barrier. Most low-powered air guns can be safely fired in a backyard or garden, and even indoors, with a proper backstop.
In the past few years .177 has become popular because of concerns of people using the air guns in the suburban use IMHO. I tinkered with .177 and .20 cal's but found the .22 to have the knock down power that I preferred. I shoot small targets at the limits of air guns range. I look forward to moving up to .25 cal. With my shoulder injury I find that using a springer is not as steady as it could be, and the CO2 just does not have the range or power I wish to have.
The is a saying the the only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys, but airguns are no longer considered as toys. Your "High End" airguns are priced higher than some firearms, but as the price of firearm ammunition goes up air guns look better and better. So this is the year of PCPs in airguns and .25 caliber's is becoming a popular pellet. Be sure to go to Pyramyd Air and see the new products are this year. The community and industry is finally being recognized among the gun community. Air guns are now being used widely as the need to keep agencies in practice and hone their skills, at a lower price to us, the community and taxpayers.

The story of 24 is presented in the semblance of real time. Each season depicts a 24-hour period in the life of Jack Bauer, who works with the United States government as it fights fictitious terrorist threats to the United States. Bauer is often in the field for the Los Angeles Counter Terrorist Unit (CTU) as it tries to safeguard the nation from terrorist threats. The show also follows the actions of associated CTU agents, government officials and terrorists.
24 is the second longest-running espionage-themed series in television history, behind The Avengers by longevity of broadcast. It surpassed the original Mission: Impossible series by number of episodes with the eighth season, after the conclusion of which 24 will overtake The Avengers. Kiefer Sutherland is currently only under contract until the end of the eighth season, but is "absolutely open" to return for a ninth season. Formal talks regarding a ninth season will commence during the airing of the eighth season.
If you have not seen this show you really need to give it a chance. Before I was through the first 24 shows I was hooked, all the way. Each season is a series of 24 hours of real time.

Revisiting the rocket stove in "Clay".
Maybe building it on a turntable would be a good idea. That way you could control the air flow coming in. This is of course only if you are outside. I would think I would want one just a bit bigger, maybe for a 8-9 inch skillet.

This is something I would expect from the movies of Crocodile Dundee... I have not had the pleasure of seeing Chis Caine's knives before. I would think you could do just about anything with this knife.
Thanks Sean and Chris.
