The image isn't ours; a scout sent it to us, knowing how valuable such advice truly is. We just added the truism beneath, so you'd never forget. Mad Duo Clear

Thought we’d get your attention. That was Brianna Womick, modeling a Blue Force Gear RACKminus, the LBE that started it all. Now you can get the SPLITminus. To the point: We’ve told you about our dear, dear Blue Force Brittney before (we do really like her, though sometimes the way she stalks us can be unnerving), who handles the media for BFG when she’s not outshooting all the boys on the range. Anyway, she e-mailed us earlier to advise that the new SPLITminus Chest Rig is finally available. The SPLITminus is similar to the RACKminus (which is good kit, though we don’t like the boob connotations in the name). It uses the same minimalist MOLLEminus features but has a pair of buckles in the front instead of a solid MOLLE platform, allowing you to bail out of your gear (to shuck it in time for a ’96 or go prone)…
We recently spotted a very nice new morale patch over on Ranier Arms. The patch recalls one of Hoot’s best lines in Blackhawk Down and is a nice reminder of everyone’s primary safetly. Plus it just looks cool. The patch is available here, though it is apparently manufactured here. If you go buy one, tell ’em the Duo sent you.
The Austin based firm Tracking Point is advising they have developed the first functional 'precision guided firearm'. Specifically, a sniper rifle. Using technology similar in function to guided missile systems from fighter aircraft, Tracking Point advises that anyone can now perform long range ballistic surgery with "Tag-Track-Exact" technology. Unless the whole thing is a well-planned long term April Fool's joke, this could be interesting indeed. Mad Duo Clear!

This is what we like to see. Remember the coordinated terrorist attacks on Mumbai four years ago? (You should be – that's one of the things we should be concerned about here…if not a Beslan…or coinciding with a Beslan.) The only survivor was Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, and Indian President Pranab Mukherjee has rejected his mercy plea. Looks like India finished things up and executed him. BY HANGING HIM. They put a rope around his neck. This will probably do nothing whatsoever to diminish the murderous and twisted zeal of the assholes that think like him, but it is no doubt cathartic for the people of Mumbai (and justly deserved). Kasab was a member of Lashkar-e-Taiba. The attacks killed 166 people and effectively shut down Mumbai for over four days. Oh, and yes, we watch Al Jazeera English. If you're not sourcing information from multiple sources, you're not doing a very…
Patrick Ma: the Force Behind Triple Aught Design We love us some TAD Gear, though not as often as we would if we didn't spend so much money on single dancing moms and Ramen noodles. Patrick Ma is someone we'd like to meet and interview someday. Says Ma: "I spent most of my childhood in the outdoors so I thought about jackets and field tools a fair amount – what I wanted to keep me warm, dry and yet vent well when I was slogging it through the snow or splitting firewood, and what tools to have with me in the event I got lost in the woods. I would say one of the “first” pieces I ever designed that could qualify as a “technical drawing” was a jacket that used something like a water resistant Cordura for the shell, when I was 16. Also, since getting lost in the…
Ernest Emerson (Emerson Knives) is a stand up guy, as those of you who know him personally already know. Emerson Knives as an organization is a class act. For instance, they recently declined to attend the New York Custom Knife Show because of Hurricane Sandy and his refusal to make money in a place where so many people have lost so much (his message to that effect is below). He is, however, donating some of his awesome custom work to a benefit on the victims' behalf.
For those of you who're interested, this appears to be an Emerson…in space. Which is hard to beat.
