Yesterday’s 24 hour 5.11 Tactical giveaway was for a pair of 5.11 tactical hiking boots and 2 pairs of tactical socks.

The person favored by the random.org number generator, to stomp around like a tactical operator boss next week is….

And his entry comment:

Friday is the day I get the most and least amount of work done at the same time..

Congrats JohnnyTToxic.  I’ll be contacting you shortly for your name/address.

I’d like to once again thank 5.11 Tactical for hooking up all the great gear.  Also thank you to everyone that reads the blog, passes around links to it, and comments.  Without your support and participation these giveaways would have never happened.

Stay tuned for more giveaways.  I’m dangerously low on ENDO t-shirt stock right now, but will run some giveaways sooner or later on those once I re-up.

I hope everyone has a great Easter weekend.

Even at $20+ per car for admission to the National Parks I have been to, in my opinion it’s worth every penny.

If the money is what has been holding you back, the fees are waived for a week, from Saturday April 17th until the 24th. (Source)

Go get some fresh air and exercise, and don’t forget to bring your gun.
