Let's be clear about one thing, this is a fresh box, zero range time review. I have not put these pouches through any kind of drilling, extended use or target practice of any kind. This is one of those touchy-feely reviews that really irks the likes of people who think they can do it better, but rarely put pen to paper to prove it.

Between the games, stories, podcasts and tattoos, my buddies know well that I'm the WWII-guy of our group.
