View Full Version : Time to stock up, baby! Tactical Bacon!

I love it. I think it's both funny and practical. I have to order one or 100.

And yes, that is CMMG, maker of AR-15s, who came up with this genius idea.

Get 'em while you can. (http://www.thinkgeek.com/caffeine/wacky-candy/c399/?ref=c/&cpg=cj)

That looks good, but I think this one cost less:

Indeed. "Tactical Bacon" is a whopping $28.06/lb, whilst the Yoder's Canned Bacon is a mere $17.54/lb

I would guess though that the Yoders must contain $10.52 less "tactical" than does the "Tactical Bacon".... you can never have too much "tactical" in your bacon.

He uses them to test his .44 mag handloads.

I'd never thought of shooting big chunks of pork as a test material, but it definitely shows some interesting wound channels.

We used to do the same thing, using recently deceased feeder pigs for ballistic testing. Big sows used to work good too, just can't let them get too ripe!

Of course it's tactical - one's black, the other is camo!:D

Tactical Bacon? Where are the Tactical Eggs? And the Tactical Toast? Let us not forget than none of these are any good without Tactical Coffee. And when we have finished consuming all of this tactical stuff, we can go out a take a good tactical....... !

Mmmmm I love the smell of tactical in the morning.:D

I thought this was going to be a thread discussing SWAT team tactics or something.

Never underestimate the power of bacon. Might even make your
gun run and smell better !

I've held this in a gun shop. Its metal and heavy so you could clobber the BG with it !
Or throw a few pieces out as a distraction....

You own a pizza shop, correct? Have you ever thought about selling tactical pizza? By the slice?

By the time you ship it half-way across the country, it could truly become tactical...

It seems that anything labelled "tactical" causes people to pay a premium for it.
