The June Tac Pack arrived last week, but I must admit that other stories took priority. I heard about Tac Pack and decided to give them a try. It’s sort of like a “jelly of the month” club, but for gun guys. The way it works is that you subscribe, they charge you $60 a month, and you get a package of random gun related stuff.
You will remember that I was trying out the Tac Pack back in May, and I said I would review it for another month, so here goes:
This month’s Tac Pack had the following items:
- A Quikcord paracord holder. The manufacturer website lists it at a $35 value, but I am not sure that I would pay that for 20 feet of paracord and a chemlight inside of a plastic holder. I can get the cord for $6 and chemlights for a buck. Call this a $10 value.
- A Zippo fire starting multitool. Value: $19
- Antiwalk AR pattern pins. Value: $12
- some 8×11 paper targets. Value: $4
- Muzzle Device Alignment Shims. Value: $14
- An “Equalizer” which appears to be a brass knuckle disguised as a bottle opener. Value: $15
So the total value is right around $74, or $99 if you pay MSRP. A couple of items that I can use, but the fire starting tool is the only thing that I think is cool. Judging by the (lack of) interesting stuff from last month, I don’t think this is worth the money. I can accumulate miscellaneous junk on my own without a subscription.
I don’t think it is a ripoff, but I also don’t think that I want to spend $60 a month on it.
EDITED TO ADD: I went to cancel, but they have already billed me for the July shipment (they bill on the 20th), which means that I will get a third box.
As usual, the disclaimer: I don’t advertise, and receive nothing for my reviews. I have no relationship with any products or vendors that I review here, other than being a customer. I pay what you would pay. I only post these things because I think that my readers would be interested.
