When Nick and I saw the swag box at the Magpul booth yesterday, I knew they couldn’t really be cigarettes. After all, who would want to ‘Take A Dragful Of Magpul’ in this anti-smoking age? Then I thought they were boxes of promotional Magpul crayons, just perfect for my daughter who loves Kalashnikitty, right?
Unlike smokes or crayons, they’re packed just twelve to the box. While some journos had grabbed a whole bag full, I restrained myself to just two boxes. I didn’t even get enough to load up a mag full of Magpul swag. I know, you’re thinking ‘waah…’ (and probably ‘enough with the bad puns already’…) since dummy rounds are usually used one or two at a time for malfunction drills. And they usually cost a buck each, plus shipping and handling.
One of these boxes I’m keeping; the other will be the prize for some yet-to-be-announced TTAG caption contest.
