Vulpes Training Launches

Vulpes Training hand crafts training drones for a variety of weapons from super durable HDPE. Many of these items also make excellent clubs which could run afoul of policies at the site they previously used to sell their wares. Now they have launched, affording them more freedom to make and sell whatever they want. The new site is worth checking out.

Vulpes Training Mini Native Club


Today Mission Spec (KS) is announcing their newest endeavor into the tactical training space. Normally participating in the tactical gear side of the industry, this move into training products represents a break from the norm for Mission Spec.  “Fighting the Global War on Terror for 20 years has resulted in a paradigm that could have disastrous consequences. With the actions between Russia and Ukraine currently taking place it got us thinking about fighting in a near-peer conflict… again,” says a lead R&D director at Mission Spec.

All of this prompted Mission Spec to design, test, and [very soon] manufacture the DAY NOD™DAY NOD is just like your standard Night Optic Device except it does not enhance the user’s abilities in the dark.  That is because it is designed to operate only in the daylight.  With so much training conducted under NOD and at night you don’t want to let those skills and techniques go unused while out of the cycle of darkness.  A user’s peripheral vision and depth perception will be just as limited during the day as at night with the DAY NOD.

Forward thinking like this is the reason Mission Spec products and custom gear services are known for solving problems of the end user. Availability in Q4 2022 with an estimated price point of just slightly higher than traditional night optic devices.

Vulpes Training Hogan’s Hammers Series – Fiji War Club

I’ve mentioned Vulpes Training here before. I own a Mini Native from them and I appreciate the value, quality, and fun factor of these handmade tools. I also happen to have a soft spot for dogs. So, when I saw that Vulpes Training was releasing a new series called Hogan’s Hammers to help pay for Hogan’s (the Vulpes Training shop dog) ACL surgeries, I knew I would have to mention the series here.

The vast majority of their catalog is comprised of training versions of real world martial arts weapons but a few of the items they make are functional clubs. Hogan’s Hammers will be an entire series of functional clubs based on weapons from cultures around the world. Like all of Vulpes Training’s tools, they will be hand-ground from 3/4″ thick HDPE plastic.

The first of the Hogan’s Hammers series will be the Fiji War Club releasing on January 21st, 2022. This club is 33″ long and weighs in at 1 pound, 11 ounces. The handle features Vulpes Training’s hand-ground 3D texture. IN short, it’s really stinking cool.

Each drop in this series will be limited and will be made ahead of time so they will ship right away. When they are gone, they are gone. These will not be available via the Vulpes Training Etsy Store. You will need to contact Vulpes Training directly via their social media in order to purchase.

Crocs – The Most Tactical Shoe

Social media in this industry can get weird sometimes. It often seems that the second most effective way to generate engagement (after half-naked women) is tactical curmudgeon posts. You’ve seen these posts before. They say things “No man should ever wear shower shoes” or, “Crocs will get you killed in the streets!” Nuance is eschewed in favor of appealing to machismo. Everyone gets to have their tribe moment where they high-five and act like they are so glad they aren’t like all the other clueless goobers.

Are Crocs really all that bad? Are they possibly even… tactical? I’ve answered that question for myself and I won’t be without a pair of Crocs. In spite of what the tactical-stick-in-the-muds say, I think they are actually pretty darn practical. They might even be the MOST tactical shoe (in some situations… for some people… doing some activities… maybe).

For instance, you can put your feet into a pair of Crocs about as fast as you can put your feet on the ground when getting out of bed. Unlike something like a thong sandal, your toes are protected and there is heel retention so you can actually run in them. That’s right. Crocs are the ultimate bump in the night footwear.

They also happen to be a great addition to your backcountry mobility kit. They are lightweight, don’t absorb water, can be wiped dry, stay on your feet well during movement, and are comfortable. This makes them perfect for creek crossings or taking care of your feet in camp.

This article is only partially about Crocs. It’s really more about thinking for yourself and understanding that it is okay to like what you like. Don’t buy into the absolute statements that get tossed around by the grumpy tacticians who know no other way of engaging their groupies. If you like Crocs, wear them. You might find they are actually useful.

After all, if Crocs aren’t tactical how do you explain the fact that they are MLOK compatible?
