What's the deal with these older generation men walking around in Walmart and the lgs wearing combat boots, tactical pants and web belts while sporting a big fixed blade knife on their belt? I know it's a free country but what or who exactly are they trying to portray them selfs as? One guy in walmart was convinced that his grandson needed a huge camo "day pack" backpack for school, the kid was maybe 4 years old... Couldn't even walk with that pack on, much less full of school supplies. But gramps was all
Decked out like he is waiting to go on a Op. I guess it's similar to all the gun videos on YouTube where they all are tacked up while shooting in their backyard. I just laugh at these guys and wonder... Do they really think they are High speed operators or what? Lol

I think they are:

1. Reconnecting with their fading sense of maculinity as the declining years come about.

2. Trying to look like someone you wouldn't want to mess with as a defense mechanism. You see this a lot in nature. Animals make themselves look bigger than they are in an attempt to not be messed with.

All and all, I understand where they are comming from.

It's hunting season. Maybe they have been hunting, are going hunting, hunting clothes are in the rotation, or just like wearing camo during the hunting season.

I often wear a camoflauge shirt to Walgreens or Lowes during the winter. I don't wear the trousers because it looks silly, and I don't want to get the scent on my hunting clothes. But maybe they are small game hunters.

Did their choice of apparel do you any harm?

I didn't say anything about camo, hell I wear camo sometimes. But these guys I see are wearing 5.11 style pants, tucked in t-shirts showing off their gut. But these aren't hunting knives, more like the funky looking crooked knives that are supposed to be more "ergo"? And this guy one on each side of his pants lol. Idk I'm not into tactical and high speed stuff, had to wear that in the Military. Not interested in having that many pockets anymore, no use. Maybe your right though... Maybe it's their hunting set up, or maybe they watch too much Sons of Guns... could go either way. It kinda does bother me though, but I get a good laugh about it at their expense so it all good.

I wear 511 pants often because I'm issued a buttload of them with my dept. So that's just pants that I don't have to buy. Other than that I'm a bluejeans kind of guy.

But I know what you're saying. I used to think the same thing when a while back seemed like everybody and their brother was sporting a bluetooth phone thingy in their ear and walking and talking like they were Donald Trump making million dollar deals on the move.

Practical, tough, long wearing clothing. And when you say "web belts" are we talking LBE or riggers belts?

1 It's November, watch out for deer.

2 I just came from my LGS where people buying CCH handguns were waiting in line to be waited on and there was a YL at the front desk answering questions on CHL classes. While I was paying for my electronic ear muffs three people got fliers and directions to where the nearest classes are held.

Plus, you are in Walmart, be very glad the oddest thing you saw was tacticool, not BBW fetishwear.

Some people really want to be perceived a certain way and so they play dress up in an effort to 'look the part'. No different than suburban soccer moms wearing $500 Arcteryx or North Face jackets when a $90 jacket will do.

Sometimes I suspect someone is actually close to or coming from hunting. Of course I have to also guess that location may play a part of this. Closest hunting to here is a few hours away.

... more like the funky looking crooked knives that are supposed to be more "ergo"? And this guy one on each side of his pants lol. ...

The tacticool look is also closely linked to the guy shooting an $1000 AR with $3000 worth of gear on it he will never use to its full pontential because he "takes a class" once a year and shoots twice a year. One before the class and one a month later.

Wallmart can be fun. I get my hair cut there, buy toilet paper and value packs of ammo and people watch. A couple of months I noticed a bunch of people looking in one direction and spotted a tall, gorgeous woman in a gold cocktail dress and high heels at the electronics counter. Her dress was about the length of a confortable tee shirt. They guys were enjoying the show, I saw one guy get punched in the arm by his W/GF, and the girl seemed to be enjoing herself too. Not your usual Wallmart shopper by a long shot.

I was dressing like that when I was 12.
For a year or two.

That's fine with me.

That's better than I did at Home Depot on Saturday. I was picking up paint color cards and overheard a guy telling a customer about various paint finishes. I looked to my left and the "guy" I heard was a tall, thin, busty tranny. Wearing the orange Home Depot apron. I have no idea how the customer kept a straight face.

I can count the number of times I've been in a Walmart on less than the fingers of one hand (and that's been while visiting out-of-state). Don't worry much about what their customers wear.

I have, however, pretty much seen my fill of folks wearing 5.11's, especially after it became the virtual uniform-of-the-day for different training venues, casual days, etc.

Once I found some more comfortable, better-fitting camping/hiking pants at a REI store (with a better array of pockets for my needs), I tried a couple pairs and retired my assortment of range BDU's. Just wish the store carried them in more than one color.

I'll continue to wear jeans in the colder weather, but in the warmer weather my collection of jeans, cargo shorts and hiking pants will let me fit right into how the rest of the folks dress in the coastal mountains where we bought a house, as well as in the coastal beach towns.

I've seen enough "tactical apparel" to last the rest of my life, but I don't mind if other folks wear it, of course.

FWIW, most of the serious hunters I know don't look like they're trying to dress "tactical" as the hunting/field clothing they wear doesn't lend itself to that "look" ... (and they certainly own enough such clothing for SWAT, street enforcement details, range duties, etc).

When it comes right down to it, though, sales keeps businesses going, right? ;)

I know some people that wear that stuff because their work requires that kind of dress and they just happen to have a lot of 5.11 pants. nothing wrong with that. The ones I get a kick out of are the poser operators that the OP is talking about. The kind of guy that spends more time watching nutnfancy videos and being a sheep dog. Orders tons of expensive crap that he doesn't really use as its designed.

It is very similar to the frat types that are decked out in patagonia, mountain hardwear and TNF but have never been camping and wouldnt know what a trail looks like but they have a 300 pair of Asolo hiking boots. Or back in middle school when you had kids that would dress and act like skaters but never even owned a skateboard. Some people will do anything to fit in with a certain crowd.

11-13-2012, 06:24
My idea of every day "tactical" wear is Carhartt work pants and a t-shirt with a button up shirt or some other loose fitting shirt to cover my EDC. The pants have handy pockets on the side for your phone and extra magazine on the other and they last forever. That's about as tactical as I get. To each his own though.

It's hunting season. Maybe they have been hunting, are going hunting, hunting clothes are in the rotation, or just like wearing camo during the hunting season.

I often wear a camoflauge shirt to Walgreens or Lowes during the winter. I don't wear the trousers because it looks silly, and I don't want to get the scent on my hunting clothes. But maybe they are small game hunters.

Or they are coming from or going to work. A lot of people who work with their hands use a fixed-blade knife.

I regularly wear 5.11 pants because they are available in my size, comfortable, have plenty of pockets for all my crap (cell phone, wallet, pocket knife, a small notebook and pen, jframe and speed strip, keys) plus they are reasonably priced and durable.

I wear a Wilderness belt because they are reasonably priced, durable, available in my size, and look neat enough to suit me.

I wear a pair of Bates desert tan boots because they come in my size (15) are durable, comfortable, and best of all I paid $30 for them when I got em on clearance($115 original price).

Notice the "in my size" thread common to all three. I'm 6'8"/350 so anything I can find in my size that's durable, reasonably priced, comfortable, and looks neat gets bought and worn. I'm not a poser, I just like practical clothing.

You then said "I wear cargo pants does that make me a taticool tool?" you implied that you were a tool, I just went along with your suggestion. I never said they were tools because they dressed taticool, you did. Still confused?

The tacticool are no worse than the bikers that dress like they are doing a cross continental trip trip Charley Boorman and Ewan McGregor did on Long Way Around
Www.longwayaround.com . They get all dressed up and go to a bar 5 miles away

Well sometimes the Tacticool are coming from/going to hunting and sometimes the bikers are riding cross country.

Well,,, if your going to Wal-Mart your a tool to start with.

Let's see, I shop there from time to time....

I was stocking up on their centerfire ammo when it was cheap. I also pick up my elderly parent's medications there, too. For cetain items, WM makes sense.

As for your "tool" comment; you are simply an *******.

Honestly I've never seen anyone walking around like you describe.

Might be because I haven't been inside a Wal Mart in years, though.

I do see a lot of doofuses in the MMA shirts that look trashy as hell. Really goofy looking. I've seen those on both the young and old, but mostly early twentysomething guys.

You got it wrong, mate.

The BMW crowd are too civilized and responsible to ride to bars and consuming alcoholic beverage.

They dress up like Obiwan and Boy Toy Charlie to go to Starbucks Coffee.

I'd rather see 1000 "tacticool", fixed blade carrying grampas walk around wally's world, than some punk with his undies hanging out. :upeyes:

I must have offended you, sorry I have two jobs and a life. I can't spend all day looking at the Internet to get my post count up.
