Someone Trademarked The Term “Morale Patch”-Help Stop Them

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

Yesterday, Morale Patch Armory announced they had received a trademark for the term “Morale Patch” and immediately set about having morale patch collector groups shut down on social media. Obviously, the term existed long before these guys came along. I’m all for respecting IP, but if you didn’t create it, you shouldn’t claim it.

Consequently, some folks have banded together to appeal the trademark issue to the USPTO. Naturally, this will take lawyers, and lawyers take cash. They’ve started a gofundme page and raised over $8000 in the first hour. Consider, throwing a few bucks in, in order to stand up to this outrageous act, designed to curtail innovation and trade.

SHOT Show 17 – Where Does All Of That Swag Go?

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

I recently saw someone refer to SHOT Show as “Tactical ComiCon” and from what I have bserved over the past few years, it seems that way for the average attendee. Companies shell out beaucoup bucks to make their presence known at SHOT Show and folks leave each day with loads of cool swag.

But what happens to all of it? Some is treasured and displayed once the attendee makes it home. Other giveaways are regifted to friends and family by the generous. But some attendees are at SHOT Show to make a buck. They take advantage of indulgent companies, walking off with everything they can get their hands on, only to sell it later.

This example from eBay depicts the normal tchotchkes offered as promotional items, but others will be selling weapon parts and accessories scored as samples from an unsuspecting sales staff.

2016’s Top Story: TAC-SAC – Get Your Balls Back America

Saturday, December 31st, 2016

Our best performing story for 2016 (actually, for all time) was “TAC-SAC – Get Your Balls Back America”. I suppose it’s an appropriate coda for a year where social media played such an important role, no matter how unbelievable the content.

There’s not a lot that needs to be said about the TAC-AC. Rather, it’s something that you get, once you’ve seen It.  Unfortunately, in this day and age, the TAC-SAC may be offensive to some, so I’ll suggest you not go to the jump unless you’re sure your career won’t be in jeopardy by opening it at work.

A3 Tactical – Double Picatinny Clamp

This little device is A3 Tactical’s Double Picatinny Clamp. As the name implies, the Double Picatinny Clamp is designed to mount one Picatinny rail to another, providing, as A3 states, “virtually limitless possibilities… only limited by your imagination” in regards to accessories, guns, and gear featuring Picatinny-spec rails, at least. It’s CNC machined from 6061 aluminum, and its design prevents fore/aft movement of the rails, as well as preventing marring of your rails thanks to dowels that are machined slightly taller than the industry-standard Picatinny groove.

Of course, A3’s Double Picatinny Clamp does also give you the option to attach entire firearms to one another, creating combinations such as this:

Cards Against Humanity – The Holiday Hole

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Every year around the holidays, the Cards Against Humanity team comes up with a new gimmick. Last year, for Black Friday, they sold literally nothing… for $5 a pop. Unabashed capitalism at its finest.

This year, they’re digging a hole. And that’s pretty much it.

The reason we brought this up is because our friends at Tacticalgear.com donated a $1001 towards this funny but ultimately pointless endeavor. In fact, here’s the email they received after their donation:
