    Sir Galahad,

    Sometimes, I think you have nothing better to do than to scheme up new ways to make me blow Coke outta my nose. Painful. :D

    "With a tac-tac here, and a tac-tac there, here a tac, there a tac, everywhere a tac-tac, Ol' McTactical had a store, A-R-A-R-O!!" :neener:

    ...meanwhile some old feller shows up to see what all the commotion was about. Just an old retired LEO checking the back forty. "Hey old timer wanna join in" a pajama clad guy asked with a smirky grin".

    Yep.

    Old timer has a well worn old Sam Browne belt and holster, the blueing was once probably pretty nice on that Old model 19. At 50 yds he nails all 6 steels dowrange. [jaws drop 50 yds!!] He then moves up and proceeds to fire 12 shots in less than 10 seconds on target with reload...the pajama clad guy checks the timer, checks the target... from 7 yds...shots fit inside the diameter of his high dollar plastic tac watch.

    Old feller gets back in his truck "thanks fellas, I guess I could still meet the quals WE HAD to make when I was...well I guess it's different now...his old truck puffed a bit of smoke as he shifted going'round the bend...

    I wonder if Hanes & FOTL know how much money they could make if they put the word "tactical" on their dark-colored underwear...

    Sir G:
    Fine song! However, you know that only us old codgers can relate to something patterned after Old McDonald Had a Farm. These young kids now days probably never heard that at all.

    So-you are just gonna have to redo your little ballad in the form of a RAP so these youngsters understand!! HA! TACTICAL RAP! OR is is RAPTICAL? HAHAhahaha.

    I hope and pray the "tactical" nonsense runs its course soon. It seems to be played out as a marketing tool, like the ninja nonsense of the early '80's.

    Time to get back to old school, with leather boots and big revolvers. Canteens, not weird water packs. Waxed jackets, not some REI nonsense. Cornmeal biscuit, not some "power bar."

    With a quack quack here and a quack quack there, here a quack, there a quack, everywhere a quack quack, old McMcTactical had a store, ei ei oh.

    With a tanto here, and a poncho there, here a tanto, there a poncho, everywhere a tactikewl, oooooooooohhhhhhhhhhh, -------------old mctactikewl had a store, ei ei oh.

    Sir Galahad : A sense of parody that happens to be true is always refreshing. Thanks

    "...if you don't have a Beretta 92G with carbon fiber grips, sell your Royal Robbins 5.11 Tactical Pants and buy one."

    Those must be some very expensive pants.

    Don't expect Hanes (owned by Sara Lee Corp. which is very anti-gun rights) to promote tacticality!

    Is that why the VC wore black pajamas?

    BTW, this reminds me of George's old rant at TFL about "I'm sick of tactical."

    Does anyone remember the british 'commando' hatchets that were sold ? They were actually WWII RAF hatchets used to cut open aircraft to rescue airmen.
