i’m bored, so here’s a list of things i’ve been drooling over. mostly as a result of watching entirely too much 24.
rothco heavy-weight classic messenger bag
hey, i need a bag with which to carry my tricks, right? well, this is a heavy weight canvas bag made by rothco. it features the follwing…
- a large main compartment
- an inside zipper pouch
- 3 outside pockets
- brass hardware
- and a 2 inch wide adjustable shoulder strap
the bag’s 15” x 11” x 6” dimensions make it ideal for carrying the next item on my list…
system76 serval performance
system76 is a new company that primarily sells computers with ubuntu linux pre-installed. the price is right, the hardware is good and the whole thing is very good looking. here are the abbreviated specs of the serval i would (will?) be ordering:
- Core 2 Duo T7200 2.0GHz 4MB 667FSB
- 2 GB DDR2 667 MHz
- 100 GB 5400 RPM SATA
- CD-RW / DVD-RW (Dual Layer)
- nVidia GeForce GO 7600 with 256MB VRAM
- 15.4” Widescreen WXGA (1280X800)
microtech HALO III
now we’re getting to the good stuff. this is the microtech halo iii, quite possibly the finest automatic knife available. it features a 5.37″ blade and an automatic, out-the-front opening action.
unfortunately, the $400 price tag isn’t the only thing holding me back from procuring such a great piece of hardware; switchblade knives are illegal to own or carry here in tennessee, which makes this the only item on my list that i can never own as long as i live here.
heckler & koch USP
the HK USP is a modern, polymer framed firearm that has been battle proven many times over (although i still prefer my 1911 colts) and i think it’d make the perfect weapon to keep concealed in me bag o’ tricks.
i’d have it fitted with some nice tritium night sights. however, i think i’ll stray from my favorite round (.45 ACP) in favor of 9mm in this case. i’d also need an extended, threaded barrel for the…
advanced armament corp. evolution 9 silencer
this wonderful piece of equipment provides between 33dB and 41dB of sound reduction, which is remarkable. the integrated nielsen device insures that browning-inspired handgun actions function reliably with the added weight on the barrel.
contrary to popular belief, silencers are completely legal for anyone to own in most states (including TN). there are no special permits or licenses needed. only a background check and a transfer tax… basically just like buying a firearm. if you can purchase and own a gun, you can purchase and own a silencer. too bad we can’t be as sensible about the knife i mentioned earlier.
surefire makes the best there is when it comes to flash lights. the surefire 6p is a small package, only 5 inches long… small enough to easily slip into your pocket, yet with the optional p61 bulb it produces up to 120 lumens… more than a 5 d-cell mag-lite!
it makes a perfect companion for the silenced hk usp in the case of a night-time self defense situation. the surefire 6p is actually bright enough to be used to temporarily blind an assailant in low-light settings, providing you with precious seconds to respond to the threat.
well, there you have it. me bag o’ tricks. i’m interested to hear your suggestions for other items that you think should be included, as i’m sure i’ve left plenty of room for more items.
