Sure, it may be the worst case scenario but its still an interesting read:
I know, ‘Web Dominator’ sounds like either a very cool new browser or a $19.95-a-month bondage pornsite.
Heres the item in question:
Its purpose is to keep excess webbing from flopping around after youve made your adjustments to the various straps on your gear. You can either wind the excess around the product and then use the elastic to keep it from unravelling or simply fold back the excess and tuck it under the elastic. This particular product is available from Maxpedition who make some interesting gear.
I picked up a bunch of these because every so often I get tired of the excess strapping hanging off my bag like some sort of nylon cyprus tree shedding its bark. I wont say that neatness counts, but if I have to throw my bag on a conveyor belt at an airport or something it’d be nice not to have the surplus webbing winding up getting caught in the gears. Not because I care about TSA’s intrusive and invasive security devices, but rather because if I spend $200 on a nice backpack Id like it to stay as serviceable as possible.
Anyway, I’ll be playing with these and I’ll let you know what I think.
Id heard rumours that the price of the ubiquitous brick-o-22 at WallyWorld had gone up. Sure enough, It jumped about 24% from $9.99 to around $12.40 a brick. Its not unexpected, its just annoying. But you know what? Its gonna cost even more next year. So..buy it now. I’ve got probably about 25,000 rounds tucked away and thats nothing. You can reload pretty much everything else but reloading a .22LR is an exercise in appreciation of modern manufacturing. yes you can do it but you’ll wish to hell you’d just ponied up ten bucks and bought another brick instead. And can you really disagree that its the mmost common round in the US and probably the world? Now, go get some.
Does Castro’s stepping down from power mean anything to me? No, it wont affect me directly except I might possibly get more site hits from Alpha 66 members than I already do. Castro is an excellent example of how sheer blind luck and the ineptidtude of your enemy can make even a bumbling idealist a winner. If you read the historical accounts, Castro only succeeded because his opponents were inept, public opinion and support fell his way, and he got blindingly lucky a time or two.
Castro is also an excellent example of how men-of-a-certain-age should stop wearing fatigues.
