    Why must everything have a buzz word. It's all the rage. IDK why. Police and Firemen have been serving their fellow citizens forever. Soldiers have been fighting and dying since the start of time. Never really have they been called a "hero" unless it were to point out 1 person or so.

    Now EVERYBODY is a hero. Every fireman, every policeman, every dog catcher, there is no limit to who is being called a frickin hero.

    As well, everything in the gun/camping/ect. world, everything has to be Tactical. Everything from tactical pens, tactical flashlights, tactical slings, tactical holsters, I could go on forever. But today browsing for just stuff, I came across a "Tactical Fanny Pack". I'm still laughing.

    What ever happened to the days when like what we call now "special needs" we just used to call crazy?

    If you call it "tactical", you can charge more money for it...

    ...for example, when I went to SWAT school, our instructor showed us a handy tool. Cut little wooden wedges and glue velcro on the bottom. A lot of tac-vests have velcro on them so you could stick the wedges right to your vest. When you clear a room, you can wedge the door open or shut (depending on your teams SOPs). He joked and said he could "paint 'em black, write 'SWAT' on 'em, then charge $50 a piece!"

    It all changes with the generations, as all descriptions.
    Grandpa used to say - "cat's meow"
    Old Man - "tits"
    Older Sister - "groovy"
    Myself - "cool"
    Younger Brother -"deadly"
    Oldest Son - "awesome"
    Youngest Daughter - "rad"
    Grandkids - I hope I can bring "tits" back!

    Yeah "tactical" and "assault" need to be replaced with "rugged" and "dependable"

    Just my thoughts! :D

    I grew up in a sheltered farm setting, we didn't hear the cool words until they were un-cool!
    "Solid" for the reply (must be a Fla. saying)
    "tits" hopefully still upwards for you Shi, after the hurricane!

    Its true Ive seen two knives side by side at flea market both the exact same knife one had tactical on the blade and it was 10 bucks more. Its getting worse with all the eco stuff as well you could prob take two coffee cups and write eco friendly on one and add a couple bucks to the price and people would buy it.

    Perhaps "*****in."
    Or from our friends across the pond, "the dog's bollocks."

    Doesn't that mean testicles? Doesn't have the same ring.

    Yes. It's apparently a positive statement.
    Still better than "The cat's @$$."
