Paracord has so many uses, I couldn't possibly list them all here, but some of my favorites include replacement lacing for boots and drawstrings in clothing, wrapping the handles of knives and tools for a better grip, tying tarps and tents down for camping, and so on. I always have to have some on hand. I can't wait to see what people come up with for Instructables paracord contest. And, we have several colors in stock, in 50-foot bundles, so if you need to stock up, please check it out here.

After action video from TerrorWerks: Through the Looking Glass, held at MegaCon 2010 in Orlando, Florida. The United States Space Marine Corps conducts a boarding operation of a Chinese cruiser that has been missing for five years. The USSMC has been dispatched to acquire the experimental Looking Glass stardrive technology from the Chinese, but the question remains as to where the CCS Black Lotus has been for the past five years... and what it may have brought back! Visit www.ussmc.net and www.mindgame-productions.com for more information on the USSMC and other events organized by MindGame Productions!
I brought my Tactical Mission Planning Set (designed by S.O.Tech) with me to MegaCon, and it got a lot of attention. If you are a geek like me, there's just something irresistible about using markers, a dry erase board, and magnets with symbology to illustrate a scenario. I asked our good friend and MGP associate, Brian Simmons, to show me how he would use it in a real-life training scenario, and here is his quick demonstration:
And if you would like to get your very own Tactical Mission Planning Set, which comes with the magnetic mat, all the symbology magnets, dry erase markers, and a bag for storage, please check it out here in our store.

In May 2009, Iran successfully tests the improved Sajjil-2 missile, capable of reaching targets in Israel and Europe. Intelligence assets tasked to Irans nuclear program identify low-yield nuclear warheads in March of 2010. As the net closes in, a general in the Revolutionary Guard is tasked with smuggling the warheads through the Gulf and into the hands of radical groups in Asia.
The Intelligence Support Activity is tasked to locate and recover the warheads with the CENTRA SPIKE operations team before the weapons leave the country. Assets tracked the weapons to a large facility west of Iranshahr, in south-eastern Iran. The warheads are under heavy guard, waiting transport to the Gulf of Oman.
MISSION: CENTRA SPIKE, along with attached assets of 3/75th Rangers and Special Activities Division will attack OBJ Falcon on 03APR2010 to secure Iranian warheads and prevent them from leaving the country. All reasonable efforts will be made to capture specific high-value targets and intelligence related to the Asian connection in order to chase the trail to the intended recipients.
