Today Is A Travel Day

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

Please enjoy our catching up today on several industry announcements. It’s tough being everywhere and once in awhile we’re stuck on planes all day.

We’ve got loads of stuff to still tell you about from DSEI, MDM and NTOA. Plus, AUSA is right around the corner.


Tactical Tailor Ultimate Summer Giveaway

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017


Tactical Tailor has been running a gear giveaway on their Facebook Page, in collaboration with Grey Ghost Gear and Grey Ghost Precision… and I thought you all would all like to know. Especially now that the Grand Prizes have been finalized:



The 3rd Grand Prize is a “Grunt Kit” complete with a Fight Light Plate Carrier, mag panels, medical pouch, a riggers belt with padded battle belt system, a 2 point padded sling, and even a Malice Pack. Not a bad package if your job consists of humping around all day.




The 2nd Grand Prize is a “Scout Kit” which includes a Ghillie concealment hood, a Rudder RAC H-Harness, rifle drag bag, sniper data book, a squeeze bag, Fight Light admin pouch, and a SD GT Sling by Grey Ghost Gear. Again, a sweet little package from a company whose founder was a Army scout sniper himself.


The Final Grand Prize is the “Operator Kit” which not only includes a Rogue Plate Carrier, Mag pouches, riggers belt, CQB sling, IFAK Pouch and a Modular Backpack, but a set of Level III+ Armor plates! The plates are Grey Ghost Gear’s swimmer’s cut, and made of a composite/ceramic for weight savings and ricochet reduction .

The two big questions: Why is TT and it’s partners giving all this gear away, and how the hell can you enter?

“We wanted to give our loyal customers and new fans a chance to win some epic gear, so we’ve teamed up with Grey Ghost Gear and Grey Ghost Precision for a 14 day giveaway event! You only need to enter once, and you’ll be in the running to win one of those fourteen day’s prize packages. Each day we’ll draw winners, and announce them on Facebook, Instagram, and email. In the days leading up to the Grand Prizes, we’ll be giving away gear like Rogue and Fight Light Plate Carriers, Riggers Belts, Packs, Shooters Mats, Range Bags, Plate Carriers, Pouches, Grey Ghost Gear SBR Bags and Griff Packs, Grey Ghost Precision Muzzle Brakes, and more!” – TT

Entering seems simple enough, just go to their Facebook Page and click on the GIVEAWAY tab (if on Desktop) or if you are on mobile, click this link. Every day they post the previous day’s prize winners, and then the new daily prize.

Granted, its already halfway over… but there’s still several days left to win and the prizes are better in the second half anyway. It officially ends on July 31st. On the bright side, it looks like they will grant users extra entries for completing certain objectives: liking, sharing, following, etc. So theres a good chance of stacking the odds in your favor, if you cross off all the bonus entries and daily entries.

Happy Independence Day

Tuesday, July 4th, 2017

No matter where you are in the world, you can take inspiration from the American Dream and the efforts our country’s founders placed in creating an independent nation. But, most don’t know what a long road it was. Colonists started fighting the crown in April of 1775, declared independence in July of 1776, and finally won that independence in September, 1783 at the signing of the Paris Treaty. Even then, we didn’t create our current form of government until September of 1787! Even then, the constitution didn’t come into force until 1789. Still others don’t know that the American Revolution spilled over into Europe and even the sub-continent of India.


We like to wrap it all up neatly into a single date, so often pointing to this painting commemorating the event, but our fight for independence took over eight years of conflict and six more of politicking. It’s an amazing tale and well worth researching.
