Ok Guys and Girls, it’s time for our collective tactical voice to be heard.
Chuck Taylor All-Stars are arguably one of the most popular shoes to ever be produced, and have been unofficially adopted by the tactical community and military for a long time.
There are thousands of color schemes Converse has produced over the years, but none that are truly tactical!
Yes, there are black canvas on black sole Chucks, which are awesome, but none in true tactical colors.
The Tactical Chucks pictured here (The bag says Vintage 1946) were seen at the 2010 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, and if we didn’t grab a photo of them, would have slipped into oblivion.
We contacted Converse and eventually got routed to their eStore email address, who needed visual confirmation to give us any information about the elusive Tactical Chucks. Luckily we had a photo…
Just to provide a full disclosure, we’ve attached the email correspondence from Converse so you can see just why we’ve created a petition to get these Tactical Chucks made!

Hello,
I spoke with someone on the phone yesterday to inquire about a pair of
Chuck Taylor 1946 Converse All Stars that I saw while I was attending
the Las Vegas SHOT Show last week.
I’ve attached a photo of the shoes and would like to see if there’s
any information on availability and when they’ll be released.
Thank you,
Bryan

Jessica,
Can you please explain why it was being showcased at SHOT Show if
there was not an intent to produce it and it wouldn’t be available for
purchase?
Thank you for following up,
Bryan

Hi Bryan,
We apologize for any confusion. Often times our Merchandising team will take old models or prototypes to shows like SHOT to get a gauge on whether or not there is interest in the shoe. They usually let people know that the shoes are not available for sale, we apologize that you were not told this.
Thank you.
Have a great day,

Ok.. so you read it, right? “Often times our Merchandising team will take old models or prototypes to shows like SHOT to get a gauge on whether or not there is interest in the shoe.”
Converse needs to see that there’s an interest in getting these Tactical Chucks made, and the Tactical Community needs to speak up!
Sign this petition and show Converse that you want to see these get made!
The goal for this petition is 1,000 signatures and will automatically be sent to Converse once we hit that goal.
Send this to friends, family, shooters and anyone you know that could use a pair of Tactical ChucKS

SIGN THE PETITION!

 

 

So the President of the United States did his first State of the Union Address, and I think he is so full of shit he is brown.  I really don’t think he has any real idea what is going on in this country.  I would like to give a “shout out” to me still not having a job, no unemployment, and no Social Security.  Where is mine?  All I have to say is third party, fuck the people up in D.C.  they all need to lose their jobs.  I am so mad that this is all I have to say about this so far, I am so pissed off.  The more I learn about the U.S. Government the more I think “WHAT THE FUCK.”

As always I wise you and yours better than I have, and make sure you are all safe out there.

How can you have a home-defense shotgun without a door-breaching accessory? Well if your into that, Beretta’s new Tx4 Storm semi-automatic shotgun may be just what you need. The Tx4 is chambered for 2 ¾ or 3 inch magnum 12 gauge shells. It holds five in the tube and one in the chamber. The 18 inch barrel has a new Optima Bore HP Choke System that accepts a nasty, six-point breaching attachment that can double as a face jabber in close quarter situations.
The soft rubber coating on the stock and fore-end make it easy to grip. The gas-operated Tx4 handles easily even in rapid -fire mode. It also has a Picatinny rail for attaching sights or optics. The new Tx4 retails for about $1,450.

Looks good to me I want one!!!
