Ok I think I have finally snapped.
is with all the 'GUNFIGHTERS' and 'WARFIGHTERS' these days. Was 'Veteran' not cool enough for you Timmies? But to me it just sounds like more tacticool trash. Every stupid website, every company "Gear for the modern GUNFIGHTER"
I don't know why it pisses me off, but it does. You went, you served, settle the fuck down. It seems to me in my day (GET OFF MY LAWN) the 'vet' crowd didn't need no stinking label cause it was self evident. There were no WWII/Korea/Vietnam 'warfighters'. Even Gulf War one--dudes went. whooped ass, came home and got on with life.
I almost want to chuck all my gear from 'gunfighter' companies, but then I'l probably be shooting a bow and arrow and that would just be uncivilized.
also I will not grow a beard simply for the fact that its associated with 'Timmy'/Tough Guy crap.
Also the stupid skulls on everything need to go. Put a damn unicorn on it BUT ENOUGH WITH THE PUNISHER SKULLS.
I sure as hell didnt have one of those on my speedo while swimming although it would have made things interesting.
As God as my witness I will win a major match with a pink pistol that says PEACE/LOVE/DOPE! just to spite this trend. (or Hookers & Blow from Predator Tactical).
Or perhaps a Dynamic Pie Patch.
Now I need to go find my meds.
Holy shit I was just talking about this to a friend of mine.
When I was fresh out of .mil, a very good friend of mine hooked me up with a gig doing intelligence consulting out of MD, at ft Meade.
The guys that ran the company were for real quote "Gunfighters"; Guys that had more experience in their left toes than I did in my entire body. They didn't grow beards (mostly), they didn't wear 5.11 shit, and they were professional to a T.
I deployed with the company to Afghanistan to support some troops in Salerno/jalalabad, and in doing so I learned a ton about what a "real" warfighter/Gunfighters was, which I was extremely far from. These guys had honed their skills to a level I don't think I could ever attain, it just came naturally.
Anyway, left that company and became a dirty civvy that only shots for fun now.
Here are some observations from an outsider who was at least acquainted with the "real deal":
1. They stay in shape well past their service end
2. They don't buy the newest greatest shit, they just use what works
3. They don't wear stupid fishing vests
5. None of their money goes to Zev or Salient bullshit.
6. Walking down the street, these guys just look like "regular dudes"
It's guys like yeager and other has that haven't done shit but returned fire once that feel the need to dress up and get tactitarded out. Suarez and his disciples are another one.
From the true lessons I learned basic shit is always the best shit, and never draw attention to yourself.
