Roger sir. Like Doc T says - my lack of will power is exceeded only by my capability to rationalize (or something like that).

She uses lots of big words.

If we ever have anything to send your way, I see part of your change coming in fresh logs of snuff.

Which Otis kit do you have? Got a couple of different ones and I love mine. Good company to deal with as well. Met them at the SHOT.

Two - the one for the Glock 19 and another that's a combo 9MM/M4. Gotta go, somebody's screaming. LOL. I do love being a medic.

Counsellor, you need a gentleman's knife, if not a big one.

And a multi-tool for the briefcase.

And maybe a firearm or two.

We have people who know about these things.

Trust me, as your Samoan attorney, I am advising you to arm yourself.

Pocket stuff:

Cold Steel Voyager (tanto) folder
Pens, black and blue, one per
Wallet / Keys

I know, I know. My idyllic Santa Barbara university existence is making me soft.

Edited to add: And if I didn't live in the Democratic People's Republic of Ass-Cl.. er, California, then I'd be packing something a bit more potent than the Voyager.

TR or anyone else in the know, what caliber brushes come in the Otis Tactical Kit? Ideally, I'd like a kit that can clean 9mm, .40, .45, .223 and .308.

Razor,

I have an OTIS at home but will have to wait until later on tonight before I can check it to see exactly what calibers it cleans.

Maybe someone will have one handy to get you an answer quicker.

Razor,

I just googled it and came up with this.

http://www.sportchalet.com/family/in...2337&cp=876052

It looks like they have several different ones.

Razor:

I have a couple of the older #224-2 M-16 Butt Stock Systems that will work for your calibers given the addition of the different bore brushes.

I also have the latest #750 Tactical Cleaning System which states that it is good for .177 to 10 gauge. It is a bit larger, about 4" in diameter and about 2" thick.

HTH.

TR

Edited to add, I think this one would work as well.


Deluxe Law Enforcement Cleaning System

Designed to clean law enforcement pistols and sub guns 9mm thru 45 calibers. Cleans 5.56 & 7.62 Caliber rifles and 12 Gauge Shotguns. Solid brass components, two 8” and a 30” cleaning rod clean any barrel length. Now automatics can be cleaned correctly from breech to muzzle without disassembly. All-caliber patches and heavy-duty bore brushes easily strip the copper from bores. Special handle with scraper, pick, and brushes clean the receiver, trigger group, and bolt. Everything is neatly packed in an 8 oz., pocket size soft-pack case.

85211 Deluxe Law Enforcement System $42.95
