    i just 100% do not get clamshell packaging and those weird plastic zipline thingies

    do shoplifters spend time removing items from their packaging before walking out of the store with them?

    well I used to, but now....

    oh, I forgot I keep two lighters

    one is a bog-standard bic lighter that I carry to lend or lose, the other is a slightly fancier kind that you only need to depress the button to light it, for those occasions when I am too cold or drunk to be able to use the regular one

    I thought about getting a messenger bag a few times, because I think they're kinda spiffy. But then I realized that I just don't have a need to carry enough stuff around with me that would warrant a bag.

    sometimes I miss my old phone

    imgsony%20ericsson%20k310i2.jpg

    it had text messaging and could call people and not a whole lot more, but it was cheap and it kept ticking for almost five years, I think

    then I check twitter and facebook and the weather and email without having to be near a computer and I feel better

    i use to carry a diesel shoulder bag when the only extra thing i carried on my person was a book/nook and or ipad but these days i bring in a north face backpack since i started cooking and bringing my own food into work. since i eat 4 meals when I am at work, all that tupperware wasnt fitting in my shoulder bag anymore.

    Are you an athlete of some sort?

    Haha, nah. I play ice hockey in a beer league and started going back to the gym regularly again but that is about it.

    I have always wanted to bring my own lunch in since it is so much cheaper than buying lunch every day and I am working out again and the one thing I never did right was eat a few small meals throughout the day. I decided it was time to stop saying I was going to do it and just actually do it. Sundays are spent cooking for the week but its been worth it so far I feel like.

    i used to carry a leisurely book around but i really only read in one of two ways: ravenously so that i finish it all at once or very very slowly and only when im in a 'mood'

    boredom doesnt really figure into it haaa (though lately i havent been reading for fun much at all)

    part of me wants even more stupid shit to carry around so I'm always prepared for whatever comes up in my hectic "take the bus to work, come back home and sleep" lifestyle

    but the other part of me worries about becoming a mall ninja:
    hello friends,

    Last year I made the decision to trust my life on the street to Second Chance body armor. I got the level IIa because it stops the most rounds. plus I got the Trauma Plate for the front.

    What scares me is that, although I can fit an extra trauma plate in the front, I cannot fit a second one in back. As of late I have taken to duct-taping a second trauma plate to the area of my back where the heart and vital organs are located. Then I put my vest on.

    Here is the questions. The ducttape solution, although tactically sound, is hot and painful to remove. I would like to go to the single-plate solution in back. What I am worried about is repeated hits to that area with .308 ammunition. I have a high-risk security job and I fear that I would be the target for repeated long-distance shots to my back.

    Are any of you aware of a thicker plate that could stop, say, .338 Lapua or something like that? Is there a better way to do the second plate?

    BTW, I am, of course, usually carrying a pair of ceramic plates in my briefcase so that I can shield my head. My SO (we work as a team when necessary) has a similar accessory containing a breakdown NEF single-shot 300 WinMag with an 18" bbl. The plan is that I shield us with my body and “catch the rounds” while she assembles the NEF. I lay down covering fire with my 23 (Bar-Sto .357 Sig barrel) and she makes the long shots. I will then throw smoke grenades to obscure the area while continuing to lay covering fire. The problem, of course, is when I have to turn my back to run, and then the problem crops up.

    Thanks!
    I do not understand the “joke” or the “Rambo.” I am in a high-risk job. It is not the Mall of America, but Ill tell you what its no podunk mall either.I am a responsible citizen who has made the choice to carry at all times. I defend others. If something happens at the Mall then I would be the hero, not those of you who are making fun of me for no reason. Yes Im not a Green Beret but guess what neither are you and unlike you I have to face unruly shoppers every day.My REAL problem is that, like any LEO, I have enemies because of my job. They may have access to high-powered rifles. My job starts and ends at the same time every day. Although I use four rotating routes to drive to and from work, I am still vulnerable during the walk to and from my car. This is the time that I load up on the trauma plates because I DO NOT WANT TO BE SHOT DEAD!Also, someone said that my Tac Team doesn’t get training. Not true. We meet at the range every night and shoot 400 rounds each through weapons that closely resemble our duty setup. We also practice unarmed combat. I am a Master of three martial arts including ninjitsu, which means I can wear the special boots to climb walls. I don’t think any of you are working as hard as I am to be prepared. I asked a serious question about tactical armor and I wanted a serious response. If you want to laugh at somebody, try laughing at the sheep out there who go to the mall unarmed trusting in me to stand guiard over their lives like a God.

    I used to have messenger bags but I didn't really use them to do anything except like, sneak liquor places.

    but now that I have an iPad, I might have to get them out of the TREASURE CHEST I keep them in and use them again

    I like that Fossil bag so much I bought it twice. The original's front pocket magnetic clasp eventually ripped through the canvas which sucked, so we went to to Fossil store and they had one left they were planning to send back to corporate. They must have done a revision on the bag because the new one had a nice disc of leather surrounding the magnetic clasp so it's not going to rip. Fits an iPad perfectly, the keyboard is a little snug, but otherwise it's a great little bag.
