    Hi everyone, I've been lurking on the forums for quite a while, soaking up the reviews and information in several subforums. While this isn't my first post here, figured it was time to introduce myself.

    In the simplest form, I'm a "gadget geek." And when you're a gadget geek, you end up needing lots of ways of carrying the gadgets and their support accessories. A lot of my friends say I carry too much crap... Then they ask if they can use something and I can produce it out of nowhere.

    Anyway, cheers!

    Thanks everyone.
    I have my reasons for "joining" but not "posting" in forums now. I used to mod a forum and about 9 years ago, realized that the drama wasn't worth getting aggravated over anymore. Then came social media and the people I went online to avoid showed up. Just sort of realized that there was little point in starting threads or contributing when searching around for a while could find almost every potential answer to the specific question I wanted to ask. As far as replying, chances are, someone else has already replied with the same answer I would have.

    I feel your pain. A good many years ago I used to run the admin side of a wargames club, you know keeping the tournament stats up to date and such. I gave up in the end because of the pi**y attitude of some of the members and they took all the fun out of it.

    I too like a bit of electronic geeky stuff to go with my steel, wood and cordura. You're in good company. Welcome from New Zealand.
