I don't know about anyone else, but I am so sick of seeing "tactical" on everything related to the outdoors. My guns and ammo subscription is 98% AR or polymer pistol related, compound bows are dressed in carbon fiber tactical black, turkey vests are now tactical, rifle scopes are tactical, tactical pocket knives, tactical packs of every shape and size, etc. I own AR rifles and polymer pistols so I am not against them, just sick of everything and anything tactical.
Anyone else sick of "tactical?"
Tackical toilet paper would "wipe them out" !
I have tactical socks and underwear. Thinking of getting tactical toilet paper.
My most recent handgun purchase was a 1911-A1 Tactical model. 100+ year-old design but tactical all the same. It's black and scary looking so that's cool.
Was shopping for a hard side gun case and seat covers at Cabelas and sure enough, they have TACTICAL SEAT COVERS!
Let's be real people.....
Personally, I've got no particular problem with any it. Sure, some of it is silly, but hey, it can be kinda fun to be silly sometimes. Really no different than the camo craze, IMO. Camo furniture, & quilts, camo sneakers, coffee mugs, camo lacey underalls, what the heck? If you work for RealTree or Mossy Oak, it means "ka-ching"!
For my part, I got me some Tactical floor mats for my car. Tactically, they stay put better than what I had, and support my strategic goal of keeping the carpeting dry while not getting in the way of the gas & brake pedals, lol.
I'm still kinda disappointed that I didn't end up getting the Tactical Holiday Stocking. Christmas would have been so much more functional if only I'd had a MOLLE stocking complete with swivel caribiner and a grab 'n go top handle.
And, like Timmer posted, still way much better than the Zombie cr@p!
If you're nocking the modern sporter (AR) platform and have not tried a quality one you're as much a fashion victim as the guy wearing a full MOLLE set at the range.
Mine has no flashlight, no bayonet and no quad rail. It does have a 2.5X10 Vortex scope and free floated barrel and places 120 grain hand loads into .35" groups at 100 yds, over and over again. Few and far between are the proud owners of Turkish Walnut encrusted rifles of the bygone that outperform the likes of I.
I shoot often and love my 6.8. I have every confidence in it as an effective, efficient and surgical game taker. I also am far more likely to show up to the range in flip-flops and a Hawaiian shirt than a full tack vest...maybe just get me fill during that special 2-3 weeks every July or August when I get my fill of that complete with Kevlar.
Whether you like to wear a tack vest or Filson and tweed I could care less. I do have far more respect for the hunter that enters the woods this weekend having punched 1000 bulls eyes in the off season than the one that is still working off that same box of '06 from 1988 and calling himself a practiced shot.
