The center zip accessory pocket has a zippered pocket along with some organizers for pens and other small items. Behind this organizer panel that is secured with velcro, is a large patch of velcro which the elastic holster is attached. Probably not the quickest access for a concealed weapon but with practice it could be done easily.

The large flaps over the main compartment zippers sometimes get in the way when attempting to zip up the main compartment (might just be because I have it stuffed pretty full with PMAGs…). Also this has been sitting in my closet loaded with the mags for a little less than a year and you can see the indentations pretty clearly in the 500D Cordura Nylon pretty well.

On Mindfulness and Quality — Tools and Toys »

It has been said that to buy cheap is to buy often. There is much wisdom in this, as well as the opposite. Buy quality and you will find yourself not having to repeat the process. And quality items not only endure, but they also endear.

When we buy stuff, the end result is we have to take care of it. Store it. Clean it. Back it up. The more stuff we have, the more work is involved and the more stressed we can become because of it. This fact is magnified when the stuff we buy is junk.

“Anywhere I can make a buying choice that I, with proper care and maintenance, will never have to make again for the rest of my life, I do. In those cases, I’m willing to pay far more for an item if I know it will last a lifetime and, even more importantly to me, I will never have to spend the mental energy making a choice again.”

7 Reasons the TSA Sucks (A Security Expert's Perspective) »

packlite:

A great post by Robert Evans and Rafi Sela with a great insight that ALL Americans should read.

A couple of things from the article, as noted by Ben Brooks:

The TSA treats each traveler the same because of some stupid idea that everything needs to be fair. Security needs to be done due to risk — and risk means that in Israel we don’t check luggage, we check people. And I’m not talking about racial profiling here; that’s a product of poor training. Regardless of race or creed, people with bombs strapped to their body behave in similar ways.

And my favorite (I am a security person and a red teaming… so…)

But thanks to the layout of modern American airports, he doesn’t even have to get through security. The TSA conveniently packs hundreds of travelers together in cramped security lines. Terrorists love crowds because they can inflict the most harm that way. Anyone who watches the news knows that. So what does American airport security do? It gathers folks together in long lines BEFORE they’ve been scanned at all.

And another pearl:

In security, if the target is moving, you have to move with the target. There is one place for security in an American airport, and it’s that long line where you wait for Larry, a TSA worker from Des Moines with exceptionally coarse hands, to fondle you. Everything past that line is a lawless free-for-all of Sbarros and tacky souvenir shops. But even kids smuggling pot back from Amsterdam can keep it together through a 12-second wanding. Terrorists are made of sterner stuff.

Read the whole article… It’s worth the 10 minutes.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
