KDG PACK OUTDOOR-5-SMALL

The market is full of concealment type bags for long guns, subguns and pistol caliber pistols, but nearly all of them fall drastically short in their capabilities. The largest flaw of all, is that most of these packs look like firearms cases! The KDG Apparition Pack takes a completely different approach. instead of subdued colors, Velcro panels and MOLLE webbing that practically screams out the contents of the bag, the KDG Apparition mirrors the colors, style and features of popular hiking bags found at your local outdoor store. Designed from the ground up to have the quick access and storage capacity for a full load out of life saving equipment and armament, the Apparition looks common enough to belong on the trail, campus, mall or subway.

KDG Mr. Murphy Patch: Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day With Everyone’s Most Hated Irishman!

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Mission plans are like Bar Crawls; everything was going great until Murphy showed up…

We all have met Mr. Murphy, and we have yet to meet anyone that likes the guy. He’s been giving the Irish a bad name since before Saint Pat murdered all those snakes with his trusty Shillelagh!

Any military man or woman can tell you all about Mr. Murphy; well known for his universal law. Murphy likes to make frequent appearances right before uniform inspections, after you have bought nonrefundable plane tickets for your upcoming leave request, and even worse, during combat operations. According to old military superstitions, if you get three or more officers together to talk, he will appear in mere moments.

We here at KDG aren’t going to sugar coat it, we flat out hate Mr. Murphy. We asked our resident red-bearded Irishman Daniel O’Brien his thoughts on the matter, and he said, “If it wasn’t for Murphy and whiskey, Ireland would be a World superpower!” Collectively, KDG harbors an overwhelming, unrepentant amount of hatred for Mr. Murphy, and strive to avoid him at all cost. In the spirit of the holiday, we would like to offer our “NO MR. MURPHY!” morale patches for $5.00 with free shipping. For all orders over $30.00 placed on our website, you will receive a free Mr. Murphy patch with your order. The offer runs now through Sunday March 19. The patches are Velcro backed for attaching to plate carriers and hats, and are constructed out of high quality PVC material. PVC is a good choice for the spirit of Murphy’s Law, since it’s stain proof construction allows for green-tinted vomit to be easily washed off!

Here’s the real origin of Murphy’s Law.

Murphy’s Law (“If anything can go wrong, it will”) was born at Edwards Air Force Base in 1949, and was named after Capt. Edward A. Murphy. Captain Murphy worked as an engineer on Air Force Project MX981, which was designed to see how much sudden deceleration a person can stand in an aircraft crash.

One day, after finding that a transducer was wired wrong, he cursed the technician responsible and said, “If there is any way to do it wrong, he’ll find it.” The contractor’s project manager kept a list of “laws” and added this one, which he called Murphy’s Law.

Shortly afterwards, the Air Force doctor (Dr. John Paul Stapp) who rode a sled on the deceleration track to a stop, pulling 40 Gs, gave a press conference. He said that their good safety record on the project was due to a firm belief in Murphy’s Law and in the necessity to try and circumvent it.

Aerospace manufacturers picked it up and used it widely in their ads during the next few months, and soon it was being quoted in many news and magazine articles. Murphy’s Law was born.
