Some people say the Glock shovel is too wobbly and loose. I like it because it is light, and when you humping a lot of pounds, it's going to make a difference.
You lucky stiff, I wish my wife would give one of those for my BD. All I get now is a peck on the cheek.

I have not actually used it yet but it looks very solid. There is no wobbly or looseness to it. But i will let you know if i break it

nice gift on your g/fs part. I'll stick with my issued e-tool... Glock has a saw but you can't use theirs for a toilet.

I have two for back packing and camping and for the extra support you need for the morning business. Anyway, I won't go anywhere without it now, like an outhouse in your ruck. Also, they are balanced for thowing, like a Spetsnaz fighting shovel. Literally, the first time I threw it I nailed a tree at 15 yds, stuck perfectly. They also have a nice saw, which is very useful. Definitely worth it if you are concerned about weight and even if you're not.

They are awesome and fold flat. Nice saw and pretty sturdy would make a good club in fight. Too pretty to dig with though.

how can you use the glock e-tool for a toilet? This should be an entertaining response.

Explain. I can understand digging a cat hole, but support?????

with a usgi e-tool the handle is shaped like a triangle. You jam the shovel end in the ground over your hole. You fold the handle at a 90 degree angle and you sit your ass on hollow spot in the triangle and support yourself with your feet. Since the glock e-tool has no triangle, i don't see how it would work at all unless you jammed the handle up your ass so you wouldn't need a toilet.

Fold the shovel blade in the 90 deg. position and place the flat part of the blade under one hamstring in a squat. Use the shovel handle as a support. It works quite well actually and it sounds much easier than aiming your ass through the USGI e-tool handle. That sounds, well, like a pain in the ass.

To think, all these years I've been doing it exactly opposite - handle on the ground and sitting one asscheek on the back of the shovel. This clearly shows the versatility of the thing.

I figure that's what the Glock guys do - but they likely shove the handle in the ground like a stake.
