    I just bought a pair of tactical flashlights off Amazon deal of the day. I'm a flashlight junkie,so if I have a choice between a regular flashlight or a tactical flashlight which one am I buying?, Duh...

    The missus and I just invested in a set of tactical dishes.

    When the zombie apocalypse hits they double as tactical frisbees.

    Some smart fellers figured out a way to extract a lot of money from a lot of guys who can least afford to let go of some. Just convince them they need military-grade gear in XXL sizes for the coming bropocalypse.

    Honestly, I think they switched to selling "tactical" gear when the internet came along and people could easily google and learn that camping was not actually all that fun.

    If you're storming a compound in Pakistan, in the middle of the night, you're going to want this in your bag. Nothing throws your aim off like chapped lips.

    Ask your doctor if lobotomy is for you.
    Well that's where your 'tacticles' hang.

    It's smart marketing. I wish I would have thought of using it and sold a bunch of marked up cargo pants, etc.. No different than the choice to use some already mentioned (like "green"), or other descriptors like:
    clean
    hand wired
    authentic
    vintage
    relic
    brown (how many pedals have claimed to have the "brown sound")
    Or, my favorite craigslist words: "stage ready"

    Marketing 101 - the more a description lights up parts of a consumer's brain relative to something they aspire to be, the better the term is.

    " You talkin' to me?
    Then who the hell else are you talking... you talking to me?
    Well I'm the only one here.
    Who the ---- do you think you're talking to? Oh yeah? "



    Yeah.
    All that kerfluffle is a side-mounted wall-bipod, a dually/stereo sighting system, a taped up set of banana clips, and a Moron with Morhawk.
    BTW, the idiot is supporting by the clip, which could lead to premature ejection.
    You don't manhandle the clip, you maroon, you tuck it into position, make sure it's seated and grab a proper handle.
    ...oh yeah, and he's gonna tear his lower cheek and break a premolar the ways he's got his face pressed against the butt... he's gonna get his face kicked in by that butt... or, perhaps that's what he's into... different strokes, I guess.

    Is there a tactical bass rig that @AZChilicat should order to A B against his incoming rig?

    Also, any recommended mods to consider pre-delivery?

    Yelling at clouds is an interesting tactic.
