Todays idea.....somebody should make a:

Somebody should make a magazine slam pad that follows the rear contour of a round butt pistol. I like a thin slam pad on magazines, but the edge kinda negates the soft curve of the super carry treatment. One that follows that curve would be awesome I think.
Maybe I will model one up.

Great idea, I generally carry a flush bottom mag in the pistol, and a thin steel slam pad on my second mag. I carry the flush mag for the reason you call out, but never thought of modifying one to blend better. And I own a machine shop! Getting old sucks!!!

Todays idea....somebody should make a: Make a gun that makes me a better shot! I admit I am a bad shot,both pistols and rifles, now shotguns was a different story! I was pretty good at trap,skeet,sporting clays and five stand. I was a pretty good duck hunter too for over 40 years.

Somebody should do a plain, simple tutorial (in seven languages) on how to field dress a whitetail without breaking the pelvis. I'm sick of fixing the knives...

There are a ton of them already out there, I've been cleaning deer all my life without breaking the pelvis in the field. If they insist on doing it it may be easier to sell them an inexpensive cable saw.

cut out the donut and pull from the inside. Why cut/break the pelvis? Point of separation is the joints.

You and Chuck are correct, I've never broken a pelvis, either. But you'd be amazed at how many Buck 110s I've seen with a slightly broken tip and a ding about mid-blade.

In Wisconsin they sell a tool that looks like plastic Christmas tree with T-handle. I've never used one, but hunters tell me it works.

I was thinking about buying a bucket of Craftsman chisels, polishing the edge, and selling them at wildly inflated prices. I've found that lots of guys hunt, field dress, and sharpen exactly as their grandfathers taught them--and nothing will talk them out of it.

I have never split, cut or broken a whitetail pelvis. I use that cute tool you mentioned: It is sold through Bass Pro Shop and other similar places and is called a BUTT OUT. You simply shove it in, turn 1/2 turn and then pull out the small intestine. Once out, you cut it off, tie the end and allow it to slip back inside the deer. The end left outside, you ring around the anus with a knife and remove. I use an extremely sharp fixed blade Buck knife that years ago my son christened as "The A$$hole Knife"! Cut the windpipe and everything should be able to be pulled out through a split chest/stomach cut.

With a pair of surgical gloves, it is short, quick and to the point. No pain!! At least not to me. It's really hard on Bambi, though!!!

This field dressing exchange got me thinking. Is there anything else we're missing?

My thought for the day is something that went passe' in the 1960s. Magazines like Argosy used to do little vignettes like, "25 Things Men Should Know How To Do."

I remember one of those things was "fix a toaster." Heck, we're lucky now if younger guys know how to plug them into an outlet.

I'm a big fan of ideals like the rite of passage. In fact, as cruel as it might seem to us, the young boys of Sparta probably got a better overall education than our children.

My addition for today? Well, for starters, bring back some of the old school ideas, in writing if need be. Maybe they'll be better deer hunters, and their toasters will work...
