It was a great day meeting old friends like Scout/Snipers David Devaney, Mark Anderton, and others while continuing the quest to find the best gear industry has to offer which will allow the modern day Marine to fight and win on the battlefields of tomorrow.

As the famed general Hannibal once said; “If you pay peanuts you wind up hiring monkeys”. Simply put the best doesn’t come cheap and I believe you can apply this same mantra maxim to gear; “the best doesn’t come cheap”.
