Battle Mug or Beans?

Okay, folks, I want to show you what's NOT on my Christmas list this year. It's called The Battle Mug. As far as I'm concerned, this is the most useless, overpriced gear on which a Christian Warrior might waste his money.

Here's the description:

Built to military specifications, Battle Mug features a M1913 rail interface system which allows the operator to mount a standard issue M4 carry handle, tactical light, laser device, holographic sight (we call them beer goggles) or even a bayonet for close quarters, high risk operations.

The basic mug is $159, but it will cost you another $25 if you want the handle. To me, this screams "macho wannabe with more cash than sense".

I mean, this is just what a guy out in the field would want to lug around to drink out of, right? Instead of an extra mag of ammo. 

Of course you can fix your bayonet to it. Get real.

If you've got an extra $150+ burning a hole in your pocket, go to the local grocery store and buy another case of beans. Or maybe a trip to Dollar Tree to beef up your first aid supplies. Perhaps some ammo or new boots or a solar battery charger or . . . anything that will be of real use in an emergency. 

Sorry for venting. If you've got all your prepping done, and you've got the wherewithal to plunk down cash for macho schlock like this, be my guest. But please don't buy me one. I will weep inwardly at what the cost of that foolishness could have bought that would actually do some good.
