Tactical "Just the Tip" of the Day: Holsters

You know what’s stupid? MSNBC is. Having a wank after applying Tiger Balm or some other liniment is stupid (grunts: liniment). Putting ketchup on steak is stupid.

And so is training on the range with a holster you don’t normally use, while neglecting the one you will almost certainly have to draw from should you wind up having to smoke-check some asshole.

This is Aaron Cown of Sage Dynamics. We’ve run his stuff before and we like what he has to say. He is the very first in what we hope will be an ongoing series we’re going to call ‘Your Tactical ‘Just the Tip’ of the Day.”

Speaking of which, if you’re an SME and you want to vent about something, let us know. We thought this idea up in a moment of tequila-fueled brilliance and then haven’t done any more with it. We need some more “Just the Tip” of the Days.

For now though, listen to what Aaron has to say.

Swingin' Dick

Richard "Swingin' Dick" Kilgore is half of the most storied celebrity action figure team in the world (and the half that doesn't prefer BBWs). He believes in American Exceptionalism, America, holding the door for any woman (lady or whore) and the idea that you should be held accountable for what comes out of your fucking mouth. Swingin' Dick has been a warrior gyrovague for many years now and is, apparently, impossible to kill -- he once had a complete body transplant after an IED hit the gun truck in which he was riding. True story, one of the Cav guys mailed his head and arm home. Swingin' Dick comes from a long line of soldiers and LEOs (his Great Uncle commanded an Air Cav battalion in Vietnam and his many times removed great grandfather was one of the few original Burt Mossman era Arizona Rangers). Swingin' Dick detests Joy Behar and Chris Matthews almost as much as he enjoys traveling the world to crush crime vice and evil. He believes the opportunity to lead eeeelight team of Breach Bang Clear minions is the most improbably awesome thing an action figure has ever done and he's immensely proud of his perfect hair. Loyalty and respect should start from the top down.
