Whiskey 5 – 3GUN4VETS

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

WHO: 3GUN4VETS … – Non Profit veteran run organization.

WHAT: 1yr anniversary fund raising match.

WHEN: 30 -31 July 2016 (SAT/SUN)

WHERE: Parma, ID (Parma Rod & Gun Club) Home of the MGM Ironman

WHY: The Organization is about one thing and one thing only. Getting our lost veterans back, whether it be an emotional loss or a physical loss. Our goal is to help get combat veterans upright again by introducing them to a hobby they can not only relate too, but a group they can belong too. We take the weapons once used for destruction and help turn them into tools of healing. Our support structure is made up of like minded people that genuinely care for one another. Our sport offers not only the mental and physical challenges many of our vets are use too, but the camaraderie many have left behind or lost.

The 3G4V program is not designed to be a Band-Aid for veterans, but rather a life altering surgery. I know first hand the healing powers this sport has to offer because I too was once lost. Thinking I had no where to turn I let myself and my family suffer. This sport gave me back more then I ever could have asked for. This sport brought me back from a place I never wanted to be and a place I never thought I’d escape.

This isn’t a one time thing for us, we aren’t the organization that brings vets out for a weekend of fun just to check the block and say we did our part. This organization is about follow through. We are with our vets for the long run, they made a commitment to us, we owe them the same.

Arc’teryx LEAF – XFunctional Pant AR

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

Referred to as Cross Functional Pants, these are what range pants should be. They offer a roomy, ergonomic cut with plenty of room to move. I own a pair and I really like them.

Made from a 50/50 NYCO blend, these are not ripstop nor do they offer any mechanical strength.  However, they do integrate a gussetted crotch and articulated knees with a casual look. This gives you loads of room to move.  Additionally, the pockets are quite handy, but I haven’t yet had an occasion to use the pocket media ports.  They would probably be good for low viz ops.

-Reinforced belt loops accommodate heavy duty belt and carried loads
-Embedded sweat band at waist mitigates friction
-Internal hand pockets have folding knife/tool storage and media ports to allow internal routing of communications cables
-External hand pockets have secure small item compartmentalization
-Two external seat pockets; two external drop in pockets for smartphones
-Two retention loops integrated at waistline

Offered in Greenstone and Terra which are not traditional LEAF colors but fit in well with other Arc’teryx items, as well as those from other manufacturers, for those seeking a low viz look.

Sizes are even 30-38″ with 32″ and 35″ inseams but note, these pants are baggy and I suggest you go down a size, even if carrying IWB.

Where was the Speedbox when I was in? It’s highly water resistant, lockable, stackable and can be pulled around by its wheels. This thing is amazing.

Strength hurts. Speed kills. Speedbox represents the next step in the evolution of military mobilization. It’s a container system born out of frustration from using less durable, less thoughtful, and less integrated containers. At its core, Speedbox is a heavy-duty stackable, interlocking, wheeled, vented, drainable, buoyant, pull-able, rotationally molded container that maximizes the useable space on a 463-L pallet…it’s kind of like combat luggage. Gone are the days of spending up to 3 hours to build a pallet. When used to its full potential, Speedbox is a system that allows its users to palletize a 463-L pallet in less than ten minutes. If efficiency is important to you or your unit, then this container system is a game changer.

Speedbox eliminates the shortcomings of other containers used by the military:

This has always been an issue with plastic containers. Speedbox solved this by implementing advanced engineering in the geometrical design of the container, using structural foam on the interior surfaces, and devoting an ample amount of raw compound in each 50 lb. unit. This is the most durable container on the market.

A typical fully-loaded container ready for deployment can easily weigh 250 lbs. requiring a four-man carry. Speedbox addressed this issue by incorporating two simple machines, the lever and the wheel. The lever on the Speedbox is the retracting handle made from two ¾ inch aluminum rods. These rods are attached to a 2 lb. aluminum locking block which is secured by angle iron that reinforces the stress points. The wheels are 10 inch off-road, heavy-duty, no-flat tires. They will never go flat because there’s no air in them. The combination of the lever and the wheel make it easy for a single person to quickly move heavy loads across uneven surfaces (like landing zones at FOBs).

Most military oriented cases are not ideal for stacking given their smooth sides or irregular shapes. Unlike these traditional cases, Speedboxes fit together like Legos. The feet and wheels nest into each lid below. The side walls nest with adjacent Speedboxes, and the fronts and back interlock through the use of a built-in tether. When Speedbox is used as a system, it creates the most stable, easily loaded and transportable pallet solution to date.
Speedbox is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business proudly manufactured in the USA.
