The Idea for DIY Tactical

Having spent a number of years in the military, I’ve learned the hard way, through trial and error, what works and what doesn’t when it comes to making and modifying personal equipment. I still don’t have all the answers, but hopefully building this site and discussions in the forum will help increase my knowledge and inspire a new generation of do it yourselfers. I also hope that with this site a community will develop where people can come to share their ideas and save many of us a lot of time, money and aggravation.

The intent with DIY Tactical is to have a resource that is organized, easily searched and also a discussion forum where people can share information and ask questions without the distraction of unrelated topics. I would like this to be a place to discuss pros and cons of gear that is on the market and review the retailers that sell us this equipment. We are looking for candid, no holds barred discussion. Want to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly.

In the future DIY Tactical will also provide news articles about new equipment coming onto the scene. Through these articles we will try to keep up to date announcements of what is going on in the tactical equipment world.
