    I re-read all this every 3 or 4 months just for the laughs. Did you read the "return of the mall ninja". "I carry six guns" :eek: Starting to reach Neo proportions there. As he "hyper-aware patrols the streets". ROTFLOL.

    Part of me thinks/hopes? That this was actually somebody getting as much of a laugh himself as we did. Maybe some real LEO or military guy poking fun at the wannabees in his own way.

    Then again, it could have just been Gnarly. :img_tag_smiley:

    This bit of creativity (buried in the reams of writing on this topic) made me chuckle: Another day, another piece of Mall Ninja Tactical Recon Deployment (M.A.N.T.A.R.D.) gear.

    Sorry Valolamas

    Guys, back to the previous discussion. Carrying many items does not make one a Mall Ninja.
    Carrying excessive weapons and ammo (like the article) thinking it makes him/her "tactically" ready for any combat/defensive situations does.

    Most the time, these individuals have no idea what they're doing and are acting out a video game fantasy

    In a real situation it's better to have fewer items for more tasks than more items for fewer tasks.
    With fewer items your brain calculates less and comes to a decision quicker

    True, no weapon is perfect for all situations and I do believe one should be able to use more than one weapon (in case the one he uses fails in the situation he's in.)
    However carrying 6 guns, 4 knives and the like is a tad excessive.

    I was in Home Depot Monday getting wood for a shelf. Someone walked past me in a "Ninja" outfit (The purple face covering piece topped it though.) Not to mention that he had the same body shape as "Comic Book Guy" from the Simpsons. As I turned to my wife and whispered "Mall Ninja" I spotted his accomplice about 15 feet behind us, same outfit but an orange face covering. :rofl:

    Apparently they were there to purchase four lengths of 1 1/4" closet bar stock to make chucks. I hope they realize that using softwood for them is not a good idea.

    Illegal in every state of the US. (Barrel under 16 inches, with foregrip. + other specifics.)
    Just plain stupid everywhere.
