I always buy my boots at the base exchange at MacDill and have been wearing mil-spec boots for 40 years.

But as far as firearms go, I'm a traditionalist, especially when it comes to rifles. I've love that beautiful custom walnut stock on my Rem 700. Slapping the word "Tactical" on a product means it's priced two or three times more than it's worth.
Camel packs are very nice

[QUOTE="kryptar19"]Speak for yourself here brother. Down here people look at you funny if you dont at least wear camo sometimes.

That's very true down in these parts as well. Either camo or coveralls. Got a few suite and ties on Sunday but after that they are in the coveralls taking a nap with a chew in.

Yep. I've seen people here in rural PA (and, I'm sure in rural Texas too) wear cammo to social functions. I'm not sure what they're supposed to be hiding from.

I want an AR so I can be "tacti-chic".

Actually, I want one because they are just plain fun to shoot.

Most of my kit is tactical as I am not a hunter.

And you are on a SWAT team?
