In a recent article titled “Expert Reveals Best Tactical Gear,” Off The Grid News writer Travis P. shares his expert opinion on the differences between tactical gear and survival gear. He first starts off by talking about he feels as though, “The word tactical gets thrown out a lot these days when the discussion comes to firearms and prepping.” Throughout the article, the writer asks readers to think about their tactics.
I n a January 26, 2013 New York Times article, writer and prepper Alan Feuer discusses what he refers to as the “prepper movement.” In his article he states that, “[New York’s] prepping community is not only large and remarkably diverse, its leaders say, it’s also growing rapidly.” This increased fanfare has created a big market. One major buzz word that exists in the market currently is “tactical.”
The writer starts off by challenging readers not to buy products just because they say that they are tactical. He encourages readers to evaluate their mindset. “Your tactical gear should revolve around your tactics. Tactical is a mindset, not an accessory. As a prepper, your tactical mindset is to survive.”
Travis P. emboldens readers to holster their pride. “The world will not be a friendly place and will be without rule of law—we know this. You plan your tactics around this, but planning how to win a fight and how to survive are two different things. Military and police plan to win the fight; we should plan to survive. This does involve putting some pride away and focusing on what is important. You can’t always be the hero or the victor.”
Throughout the article, Travis discusses ways a person can plan tactics and then how they should plan their gear around those tactics. He goes into detail about ways preppers can protect themselves by not spending too much money and how to blend into society. He does this by discussing the advantages and disadvantages of plate carrier vests, load bearing vests and tactical belts.
