I am not much into gadgets myself. I am into less stuff these days, not more. But since it came from the master hand, I'll keep my eye on it. Making my life easier would definitely be welcome. I have found less things seem to accomplish that better than more, but I'll keep an open mind before I commit.

Tactical equipment? Are you kidding? What types of tactical equipment could be used every day that you couldn't get something at half the price that will do just the same job?

IF you don't get it don't sign up. Keep buying your cheap shit at half the price.

I am digging it. Boots, knives, flashlights, pens, etc. I have these things with me all the time.

Hmm, I'm usually not without a pocket knife, or a beer opener, but the Gerber with the 'Exacto' knife blade looks kinda creepy (like I would cut the crap out of myself trying to open the kife feature on it, maybe not ).

Looking forward to the 'ordnance' items, if only academically.

I'll be signing up presently.
