Here’s to another year (at least on the East Coast and parts further East, at the time of writing)! What’s your New Year’s resolution?
Happy Thanksgiving from Tactical Fanboy!

Veteran-owned business Bullets2Bandages currently has a crowdfunding campaign running on Indiegogo. They’re looking for funding to expand their product line with the Six Shooter Shot Glass. The completed glasses will come in two anodized colors: black and sliver. They’re designed as a replica of the cylinder from a Colt Revolver.
The glasses are machined from aircraft-grade aluminum, and comply with U.S. 21 CFR F.D.A. Reg Part 175.300 clause C1/C2/C3/C4, meaning according to the Government they’re safe to drink from. Additionally, they can be custom laser-engraved, for an extra touch of personalization.
Bullets2Bandages is a Veteran-owned small business located in San Diego, CA, founded in 2011 by two former Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal divers. They produce accessories and apparel that aim to honor those who have served the USA. B2B hires veterans, manufactures locally, and donates 15% of profits to veteran charities.
Check out these photos from this year’s New York Comic Con, taken by our friend Dave Tejada AKA Mojo, who was also dressed as a ‘Navy SEAL’.
