    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.

    They're just dressing for the job they want, not the job they have.

    At times I wear "cargo" pants...does that make me a tacticool tool?

    Do people in cowboy outfits bother you as well?

    No, not a tacticool tool. just a tool, since you like to throw that word around on threads it seems.

    I just went in Walmart Saturday wearing 5.11 pants and belt and my issued Bates boots, but I had deer blood from my boot toes to my chin, if that helps.

    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? ;)
