    I have no clue what I'm looking at besides another dig to puff up your anti-Blackhawk stance. *shrug*

    Honestly, I have no clue what I'm looking at.

    **edit** After searching the site I find that these are an ad for The Warrior Wear Integral Tourniquet System. ...as far as this product goes, I think it's a novel invention and if you're worried about massive lower extremity bleeding, finding the time to secure and more importantly apply a tourniquet one-handed may be a problem. These pants, as fashion fau paux as they may be, seem to fit that problem perfectly.

    Would I buy a pair? No, but if I were an operator, I could see a use for these. ...hell, even if I were a recreational hunter, hiker, remote-location camper, etc. As an EMT, I've seen first hand what a bad bleed can do to a person, and how quickly it can do it. Not exactly Airsoft at all...

    You can bash my "air soft holster" after you see it in the Salt Lake Tribune on Sunday. Thats a good start.

    That's a good start. Careful, though, Mjolnir. If you get the crown, they'll start tracking your IP, Google searching the phrases you use, suss out the undisclosed city/state you live in, call you names, call you a woman, say you don't open carry, say you don't concealed carry, say you don't own any guns, say you are legally prohibited from owning guns, crap on your poll threads, edit your posts with 5th grader-level taunting messages,and delete your posts when you say stuff like :

    "I think you handled the encounter quite effectively and in a sensitive way. And you made a potentially combative scenario turn out to be one of reasoned and mutually beneficial communication..."

    Why, they might even try to neutralize you. :P

    Subject matter from the expert! :P As for the topic I do have to agree with Mjolnir ( ) that pants with built in tourniquets do seem silly. I still fail to see a connection to air soft.

    It's a standing joke in some military & LEO circles that blackhawk makes the worlds best airsofter gear, crap like those pants that are worthless in a real life senario but something posers would think is wicked tacticool.

    Blackhawk started out making great products, but after moving overseas the quality really went down hill & then they started coming out with stupid crap that posers want & thus the jokes about em being for airsofters.

    Yet it still isn't locked. Hmm...

    Anyhow, the thought in my mind is, "why can't you just use a belt rather than buying special pants?" Or have I been chasing the dragon a little too much lately

    Do you hang out in military and LEO circles? Or do you read mall ninja forums? No offense, but you seem to have a lot of things to say about being a warrior, for someone who probably is just a regular armed citizen like the rest of us. Or maybe you have some weird hatred for airsoft because they wouldn't let you play.

    What's wrong with airsoft? It's good that kids get out and play something like that instead of sit on their xbox playing call of duty all day. And for us armed citizens it has some great training potential. It's not the only or the best method of training, but it does have some merit.

    I don't even see a problem with the people that buy a bunch of blackhawk gear and try to look like an operator while they play airsoft. They take their sport/hobby seriously, and I don't see a problem with that.I really don't understand why you point them out in a derogatory light. It's just a sport, like paintball only more realistic.

    Nope, I'm just a poser who happenes to be retired Military, a medically (injury) retired Fire Fighter, currently in EMS and has been shooting since 1977 "un" professionally & in the military since 1982 along with one or two LEO/Military shooting schools and a few shooting competitions & a military range officer & firearms instructor. Oh and I don't look at SASS (member for over 8 years now) as a formal shooting competition, but as a fun day at the range due to the different shooting style for SASS.

    Airsofters are a joke & posers and could not fight out of a wet paper bag on a weekend after posting mutiple videos on youtube :P:P:P

    Oh, you're just an egotist. My mistake. Normally this is where I would thank you for your service, but you seem to be doing a good enough job of that yourself.

    Na, I'd say it's more of a mild Narcissism than a egotist ifin ya ask me. Oh and don't thank me, I've done nothing to be thanked for while others have been the pointy tip of the spear & should recieve all of our thanks.

    Least I can back up my talk with a mild form of the walk & could possibly know a little bit about what I'm talking about :P:P:P
