1. Hello Mas. Sorry to hear about your family member and I’m glad he’s OK. I have been watching your ‘Stand Your Ground’ presentation down in the library at Suwannee County, FL. It was an excellent lecture but I have only just noticed that you are dressed half and half with top-half shirt, jacket and tie and the bottom half tactical pants. Is there a particular reason?

  2. If ya can wear jeans and a sport coat as casual wear, no reason not to have a pair of 5.11s with extra pockets.

  3. When we see tactical pants with sportcoats become mainstream we will have Mas to thank for starting the trend!

  4. Not uncommon in my neck of the Ozarks to see men coming to church wearing a sport coat over their overalls. You can depend on these men to do the right thing when they are not in church.

    One of my favorite lines in a movie “48 Hours” was an exchange between Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy. Murphy had just tried to insult Nolte because of his cheap, disheveled suit and Nolte replied “You may be wearing a $500 suit, but you are still a low life” (or words to that effect).

  5. I fail to see how the IDF pistol technique can be any better than Cooper’s. Has there been any IPSC or other competitions where IDF and Cooper went head-to-head?
