TFB Patches Are In The Works

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013


Just in case you’re not a frequenter of the Tactical Fanboy Facebook page, we are currently working with Mil-Spec Monkey on getting a run of Fanboy logo patches made up. These are some color variations that don’t necessarily represent what the final products will look like, although, as I’ve said before, I really dig the bottom-right pattern.

Real American History – Reagan Atop The Velociraptor at the Berlin Wall

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013


“Mr. Gorbachev, I tore down that wall” The famous speech President Ronald Reagan gave after he destroyed the Berlin wall. He rode his most trusty steed into battle…a raptor which he had the CIA clone for such an occasion. Practice Reaganomics today and buy this print to show your love for ‘merica!

American history how we like it; tough, manly, and full of guns, Presidents and impossible scenarios. My favorite print is TR vs Bigfoot.

Action Figure Therapy Animated (NSFW!!!)

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Still funny, but kinda defeats the purpose of ‘”Action Figure” Therapy’. Still, it’s always nice to see some change, and of course there’s no indication that the series will go this route; seems more like a one-off thing.

Infidel Caps Patch Case

Saturday, October 6th, 2012

If you’re the guy with every morale patch in existence yet nowhere to store them, or just happen to sell them at shows and the like, then you might want to pick up an Infidel Caps Patch Case. The case started as a custom job commissioned by Infidel Caps, was shown to MSM, who added a few design tweaks, was then shown to Tactical Tailor, who further tweaked the design, and was finally put into production. Closed, it resembles a covert weapons case (15” x 29” x 1.5”) with carry handles, and a 3″ X 5″ Velcro loop panel on the front and back for nametapes and other patches. Fully opened, it covers an area of 29” x 94” using 6 internal panels of Velcro loop; that equals to upwards of 484 patches worth of space, depending on size.

Available in black and coyote brown on milspecmonkey.com.

Recon Cigars

Sunday, September 23rd, 2012

I was at a local gun show today and happened to see a company called Recon Cigars with a booth on display. Their product is named “The Triumphant Recon Cigar”. Each Recon is handrolled by expert “Torcedores” (cigar rollers) using high-quality leaves from regions with rich and fertile soils that produce rare and unique tobacco for filler, and “ECU” wrapper leaf grown in Quevedo and Babahoyo, Ecuador. The cigars are further adorned with hand cut and hand placed patches of Candela, South American Cameroon, and Criollo-Maduro wrapper that gives them a woodland-esque camouflage look. Additionally, a percentage of each purchase goes towards the charitable organization Hope For The Warriors.
