I retired from active duty after 24 years last July and got a job as a contractor in the sandbox, I decided I needed a few new toys. First I picked up a new Spartan Blades Ares. Then I picked up a Chris Reeve Sebenza. Yesterday I bought myself a Remington 870 Synthetic. And today under the LE/Military discount program I picked up a G26. I'll try to get to the range this weekend and shoot the G26 and the 870. I've been carrying the Sebenza for 2 weeks now and it had become my favorite blade.
