I have two new friends that followed me home from the Centennial State:
It's Stabby and Blindy! The knife is a KA-BAR Tanto, an 8" fixed-blade fighting knife with a nylon sheath. The light is a Crimson Trace CMR-202 rail-mounted light - the first universal fit weapon light introduced by Crimson Trace. Both items were part of the 2012 Kilted to Kick Cancer prize packages available to the top three fundraisers in the challenge as well as numerous other equally awesome gift certificates and firearms.
The prizes were distributed in Colorado, as the top three fundraisers as well as the KTKC organizer happened to be attending the same event. Ambulance Driver distributed the KA-BAR and gift certificates; I had the CMR-202 lights; everyone went home with some really cool schwag! We were standing around the fire pit commenting on how interesting it was for us all to be in one place so close to the close of the contest, and I think Michael and Stingray are going to give me a real run for the money next year.
Of course, I have a whole year to plan and see what I can do to top this year's awesome prize list...
That is all.
