Oakley Assault

This entry was posted in Bags, Footwear, Gloves, Sunglasses and tagged , on by . Comments Closed
I’d like to report an assault. Oakley has managed to infiltrate the LAPG website. Long time shoppers might recall seeing the brand way back in the day. If so, that would have been over three years ago. In my brief stint at the LAPG offices I remember bringing up the brand for one reason or...

Closeouts, Gloves

one Jackson

Not a whole lot you can get for $20 these days. I’m not talking your daily fix items like coffee, cigarettes, dip, gum, energy drinks or the like. What I mean is something that’s going to last and that you’ll get some serious use out of. Maybe all the little Gerber gear I’ve been talking...

Oh look another blog post about gloves – Yippee! The LAPG Facebook rep posted about em yesterday and it garnered a few likes and a single comment. Can’t say I blame our Facebook fans because I have a good number of companies Liked and many of them post more often than we do. Likes are...

Just when I think winter is creeping up on us we have a day where temps hit the 60s. In the past I might have considered that cold but having acclimated a bit to this Midwest weather that’s downright warm. Earlier this year I even washed my car on a sunny 45 degree day and...

frozen digits

Had the less than thrilling opportunity to work inside an industrial-sized freezer yesterday. If I remember correctly the temp sits around -10 degrees with the fans blowing. Even with the door cracked and the fans off it can get downright nasty in there with the quickness. Some protective clothing (nothing too extreme) is enough to...

another M-Pact

You’ll have to think way back (or search the blog) to find us talking about some Mechanix Glove closeouts. I think our first mention was in January of this year when we discounted and sold out the Woodland Camo M-Pact glove. We also mentioned the fact that Mechanix is constantly updated and innovating in order...

what slide release?

Mixing things up a little bit today. Ultimately I do plan to throw in some product info but first up is some “tactical” training information. While the Internet is a wonderful tool that can teach you lots of things, there’s nothing like getting out and actually doing it. It’s also a good idea to seek...

I’m not typically a glove guy but I think I should be. Nothing beats the feel and dexterity of going bare but sometimes it’s wise to utilize protection. Coming up on two months since the end of my “manual labor” job and already the calluses I was so proud of are fading. A couple recent tasks have...

A side of Kevlar please

Kevlar is an impressive material and makes many things better and much more tactically awesome sounding at the same time. For example, “Yeah, just picked up a new car seat for the kid, it’s Kevlar reinforced, no worries.” Another thing they put Kevlar in is gloves. Not every glove needs it but if you think you need...

What’s on your mind?

That’s the text you see on Facebook as you prepare to “Update Status.” Evidently I greatly underestimated the importance of being able to accomplish this task. I should have known that even the most hardcore of operators can’t resist letting the hommies know what’s up. Perhaps something to the effect of “Bad guy dead, what...
