Those of you who are wise enough and gungy enough to follow us on Facebook know that after our recent sojourn to the wilds of Florida with the TACLET boys we shipped out for Texas. We’ve been in Austin for a little while now, effectively TDY with the Legion Firearms guys, Rogue American Apparel and the Austin Sure Shots. Today we caught a ride with some guys packing cowboy hats and 1911s to Houston, where there is a big SWAT Conference going on. There’s a lot of tactical guys here, a number of military personnel and special operations guys from Central and South American countries including some Brazilians (not the kind of Brazilian we’d normally prefer, though they’re nice enough).
Anyway, we spotted this morale patch on a hat and thought…damn, we must have that. It’s from Warrior Grips and will be for sale within the next couple of weeks. It’s PVC, Velcro-backed and speaks volumes.
Never fear, there will be a 7.62 version shortly after. Maybe we can convince them to do some for .223 and .308 as well.
Tomorrow we’re going to a local single dancing mom establishment with Luetschwager (that’s an Arkansas cop, not a tyrant from history or an exotic cheese) and Walker…and what are the chances of running into an Apache pilot who follows the blog of a couple action figures anyway. Saturday we’re going to the range with some of the Houston PD lads. You’ll be able to tell them in our pictures from the MARPAT pants and the red shirts, and the fact that you apparently have to be 19 hands and 20 stone to make their SWAT team.
Wish us luck.
Feel free to join us on Facebook as well, if you ain’t skeert.
