Miguel at Gun Free Zone has explored the contrasting worlds of the tacticool metrosexual and the Old Fat White Guy (OFWG) shooter. I have to say that I now fall in the latter category having had a few too many cheese burgers since leaving the ranks of active duty Infantrymen.
I don’t think there was any metamorphosis between the two states really. I always liked clothing that fit properly and laughed at PX rangers. I think I just went from Combat Infantryman to Veteran Infantryman. And then got fat.
