Hello my name is Mike, and I am addicted to bags.

That is how my introduction would go at group addictions counseling.

Next to guns and watches, bags are my next biggest interest.  I have all types and brands, ranging in size, material, and price, from very cheap up to several hundred dollars.

I recently received a carbon fiber airstream duffel bag from my site sponsor Ragged Edge.

The company makes all their own products right here in the U.S.A., in Clearwater Florida.  Refreshing, considering all of my other bags are made abroad.

No pictures or description can do the bag justice.  It is one of those products that you will never fully appreciate until you are able to handle, and use it.

It’s no wonder they offer a lifetime warranty on their products. Judging by the material used, the design of the bag, and the way it is constructed, I highly doubt that with even the most rigorous use there would ever be any damage inflicted that would require having to return it for repair.

The bag is made from carbon fiber sailcloth, it’s definitely not your average “cloth” though. The best way I can think of to describe the material, would be to say it’s like handling a really thick rain jacket.  This particular sailcloth also has the interesting quality of being partially translucent between the carbon fiber strip pattern.

For those of you that were a fan of the previous Winchester Ranger Ammo Comparison.  Here is a similar comparison chart for Speer Gold Dot ammunition:

Both charts are definitely worth taking into consideration when choosing you’re carry ammunition.

You might want to take a look at this when considering what caliber and type of ammo to carry.

I never realized that the expansion and retention varied so much even within the same caliber depending on the style of bullet you use.

If only there were as many options for 223 ammo.  One can dream…
