It Has Been A While...

...since I was over at the Blackhawk! web site. Since I've lost all this weight, I have a few things that I need to replace. One is a duty belt that can now go around me and one of my grand kids. My Instructors Gun Belt is also too large as are my old 5.11 pants, shorts and various concealment shirts. It is time to start on my new wardrobe.

Blackhawk! is doing something super cool now that will save me some big money as I replace my now too small other brand pants. They have a Trade Up Program where you can trade in your non-Blackhawk! pants for a 50% credit on a new pair of Blackhawk! pants and shorts. I may have seen this promotion before, but now it hits home. I can save some money (this makes V extra happy)!

Another cool thing I found on the Blackhawk! site is the Serpa Quick Disconnect System. This video with Chuck Buis demonstrates the system:

I still think Chuck has the best possible name for someone in this industry. Oh by the way, Hey Chuck! If you end up reading this, V wants to know when you guys are going to make a Serpa for her Hi Power?

Blackhawk! has a lot of cool stuff, more than ever. If you haven't been to the web site in a bit, now is as good a time as any to head on over.

I've also found my clothes are entirely too large for me now after losing 20lbs since the start of August. Thanks again, JR!

The Serpa QD system is very nice, but I don't recommend using it for any concealed holsters.

When both the Male & Female sections are joind together they add apx. 5/8" to the offset of your holster. That's not bad if you're using a thigh rig or on a tac vest, but on a concealment rig it feels like your holster is sitting 2"-3" off your hip.

Other than that its a great system and I use it on my tac vest to switch between my RIA 1911 & SA XD .45 Tac depending on my mood that day.

I'd be leery of Serpa if there is any blowing sand/grit etc... I've had one lock up due to grit and couldn't get it to release. And yeah, the trade up IS a good deal!

Did you hear about our new Raytag™ undergarment, meant to be worn under uniforms?

It uses a new "Thermo-Regulator" technical fabric which allows the user’s body temperature to be maintained at the same level despite being exposed to extreme weather differences, making several layers of clothing no longer necessary.

It caters to a spectrum of users; from military, police, emergency personnel and sports professionals, to construction and utility workers, and to the general public.

You can find more info about it on our website at www.raytag.com.

Let me know what you think about it.
