Join the Anti-Tactical Rebellion!!!
Like Picasso, I am now entering my blue period. Or red, or orange, or yellow. ANYTHING other than black and coyote tan.
I've had enough of the tactical ****, fellas. One more goddamn tactical advertisement or wannabe in 5.11 pants and I'm going to lose my fucking mind. The SHOT Show was the last straw for me. I just can't stomach it anymore. I'm officially rebelling against the bullshit subculture where people aren't cool or "legit" if they aren't sporting $3K worth of tactical attire. If I have to look at one more AR accessory I'm going to fucking puke. So, to symbolically free myself from my tacticool chains, I offer the following musings:
**** your paracord bracelets.
**** your black guns.
**** your guns that were once black but are now covered with Duracoat and/or Cerakote.
**** your Oakleys that you think make you look like an operator operating operationally.
**** anything with molle attachments.
**** anything made by Blackhawk.
**** your ball caps with velcro flags or patches.
**** your bugout bag.
**** your James Yeager video you shared on facebook.
**** your attempts to associate yourselves with military forces and law enforcement agencies you've never taken the initiative to be a part of.
**** every one of your trillion AR attachments.
**** your Larue Tactical rails.
**** your zombie talk.
**** your tactical vest.
**** your tactical carbine course.
**** your web belt.
****. Your. Glock.
That is all. Did I miss anything?

Of course the time to forget 'tactical' is long overdue. Everyone knows that a real badass goes 'strategic'.
Theatre: corner office with panoramic shatterproofs, oak door and teak desk, top floor, financial district.
Gear: expensive-cut Italian three-piece, bespoke silk shirt, six-figure shoes.
Staff: two heavyweight flunkies in black, with shades to match their earpieces, one pricey-BJ receptionist and another on standby, one corrupt accountant to sign cheques.
Sigs: contact info for various and sundry friends in high places, along with listed reasons why they have no choice but to be nice to you.
Actions: issue orders, never lifting a finger.
Software: anything by Machiavelli.

This is how I'm dressing for the range from now on. I'm only going to shoot chrome 1911s and I'm going to stand in the lane next to the guy with the Noveske AR and I'm going to shoot smaller groups than him and laugh hysterically.
Gotta have the live-goldfish-heel shoes.
