  • Presidents’ Day – A Conglomeration of Holidays

    Every third Monday in February, as a country we honor the 45 men who have served as President of the United States. But it didn’t start out that way. The original holiday, which started in 1880 and became a federal holiday in 1885, was in celebration of George Washington’s birthday, February 22. Its sole purpose was to honor America’s first president by paying homage to his accomplishments as both...

  • Love Your Gear: The UC Pack

    It’s February and love is in the air. Not just the romance of Valentine’s Day, but a relationship near and dear to every tactically-minded, self-protection-focused gear junkie who loves to carry everything in a pack that suits them perfectly: you and your favorite backpack. Like many relationships, a love affair with backpacks can sometimes be a bit, well, disappointing. A letdown. It starts out s...

  • After Action Review: 3-in-1 Hardshell Parka

    Guest post by Joe Houser We are in the depths of winter. I live in the north. Many call us Midwestern. But if you are from here or have spent much time here, you know what I’m talking about. It’s the north. It’s really cold and we get a good amount of snow. It’s not snow amounts like they get in the mountains. But did I mention that it gets really cold? Oh, and then there is duration. Anyone ca...

  • After Action Review: Covert Shirt

                Guest post by Joe Houser Perfect Casual Concealed Carry & Travel Shirt Typically, men’s shirts all seem to be the same. Find a color that you like in a size that fits and you’re all set. Features are few and tend to begin and end with button-down collars. But the folks at Propper have a saying, “For almost 50 years, making tactical gear with a purpose has been our way of life.” They d...

  • Military Holiday Traditions

    One of the toughest assignments for anyone in the military is being away from home during the holiday season. Duty stations far away can be especially lonely this time of year, missing loved ones and many family traditions. While nothing can replace celebrating at home, over the years the military branches have tried hard to ease the burden of overseas duty during the holiday, and the troops thems...

  • Men’s Stretch Tactical Pant Review

                Guest post by Joe Houser A Tough but Comfortable Pair of Pants Tactical pants have been a mainstay in the shooting and first responder communities for years. Whether you wear them by choice or are required as part of your uniform, most of us have at least one pair in the closet. I have to admit I wasn’t a big fan of tac pants until recently. They were heavy, hot, and uncomfortable. I’...

  • After Action Review: OTS XL Bag

                Guest post by Joe Houser Propper has a great lineup of bags. I’ve been using their duffles, backpacks, and gun cases going on two years. But the bag that I use most frequently is their large sling bag called the Propper OTS™ XL. Propper makes two OTS bags, but my focus is on the extra-large version, the XL. I’ve never said that I wish a bag was smaller. It always seems like I need mo...

  • After Action Review: M65 Field Coat

                Guest post by Joe Houser It’s November and we are starting to get a chill in the air in the Midwest. It’s football, pumpkin, and jacket weather. I’m a little more excited about this than normal as I get to don the new M65 Field Coat from Propper. Now the M65’s design isn’t new. It’s the third upgrade of a design which began during WWII as the M43 and later, during the Korean War, as t...

  • A History of Veterans Day

    Every November 11, patriotic Americans set aside time to honor military veterans, both alive and passed, and thank and remember them for their service. Today we call this special day Veterans Day. But it wasn't always called that. In fact, it wasn't even a national holiday for a long time. Originally called Armistice Day, the holiday commemorated the end of World War I on November 11, 1918, when f...

  • Tactical Pants that Don’t Look Tactical

    You know the style. Big, baggy pockets on the outside, held closed by large, obvious flaps. Pockets in places normal pants don’t have them, like along the outside of the leg or near the knee. Tactical pants typically look like tactical pants. But sometimes you don’t want to look so, well, tactical. What if you want to blend in and not “look the part”? While there is a very useful purpose for these...

  • Get the Stink Out
