Burning A Hole In Your Pocket

It’s most important to be able to laugh at yourself before anyone else.  Crye stuff is awesome in many ways, but unless you’re doing some serious SF’y/door-kicky stuff for real, you need to remain aware of the fact that some Tru-Spec or the like would’ve been MORE than adequate for your needs.

For anyone wondering, yes the money is real and it’s all 20s (just over $2k there) but I picked it up from the camp cashier while I was deployed using a chunk of savings I’d put aside for a holiday.  They had an exchange rate that blows the current one out of the water so I spent the entire triple-flight journey home from afghan shitting myself in case my ‘investment’ were to be lost or stolen.
