Thank You NRA, But NoThanks
Gave it to my sister's boyfriend. He plans to use it for some of his electrical tools.
Those three big gold letters are the problem. To a thief, "Oh lookie, lookie what we have here". To a LEO, "Mind if I have a look inside your bag"?
My "stuff" gets wrapped in an old sweatshirt and stuffed into a faded green cotton bag with a stout rope drawstring. Goes next to a cheap sleeping bag and an oblong black bag with an "Isuzu" logo that is my BOB. None of it looks good enough to donate to a thrift store. Doubt any of it would appeal to even the most down and out meth head.
What I want the world to see if an old, fat grandfather with no money driving an old P.O.S. Nothing of interest here folks, just move on.
So thank you, NRA. I don't mind supporting your mission, but I am not advertising my firearms. Faded NRA sticker on the rear window? Sure, along with a faded "My son is in the Army" and a "Freedom Isn't Free" stickers. Goes will with the rest of the image.
One last point. I don't own a single damn thing with the word "Tactical" on it.
