EJ means External Jugular, It is kinda like a last resort for an IV. Basicaly you just stick the external jugular with a regular angio-cath and run your IV from there. Just don't use a TQ to make the vein pop up.

I had a VARGO stove and I never could get it to work right. It never did want to fill right. As far as ETOH bottles, I'm looking at the plastic GI flask. I will test one to see if it leaks.

How is the XCR any better than the AR. The AR is proven in combat, the XCR isnt. The AR has some of the best ergonomics of any firearm ever made, the xcr hasn't. If you don't want and AR then get a MASADA or an AK. the MASADA was actualy designed by a former operator, and the AK is proven.

If your're doing something fancy (ghey) then an airbrush is fine, but if it is a real working gun some ultra-flat camo krylon will work fine. Image[/img]]

Use the biggest knife you have to try to pierce it and let it drain, but make sure you take some caffeine pills first to make sure your hands are steady. or just do the sane thing and use a hot compress, and make sure you was your eyes afterward.

If you don't feel your life is worth a 160$ then I'm sure someone in China or hong kong makes a knock off vest just like that one, Good gear is expensive for a reason.
