Thats a great story. Glad it helped you.This is from a "user" point of view. I personally use and carry one and have for about 18 months. It rides behind the mag pouch on my duty gear. Sure is handy for quite a bit. Very few carry tool boxes in squads with all of the other "stuff" required.
As usual everyone will say something is too much to pay until what one needs does not meet the need. Had a few other copies, chip and bend and get tossed in the full time line of work. This time I got what I paid for. Just always remember discounts and cheap prices are for a reason and your undying gratitude has nothing to do with it. And yes, I took the LEO discount from the Wilson Tactical.
Yes, I spent a little extra for "bling" like the black coating and badge number on it. Definitely NOT needed by got to take care of one's bragging rights every now and then. :rock:
The tool held up in searching an 18 wheeler (twenty two of them at last count) from prying and cutting about 10 pallets of shrink wrap to opening the walls for hidden compartments. Cutting tie downs, to prying open nailed pallets. Plenty of scraping, and other uses.
Definitely something for those who want a tool to use not a tool for the "kewl" factor.
Hope this helps.
