[b]tactical[/b]: 1. What you do, as opposed to what you use to do it; 2. Marketing ploy designed to get more sales for sometimes somewhat useless sh1t. The 'once-a-month' thing about womenz might be more strategic than tactical, at least in the long run. -hanko

"Tactical" is not; recreational, collectable, for sport, for plinking......If it's intended for any of those things it is not "tactical". If it's intended for you to use to kill other human beings, or allow you to kill them more efficiently, its "Tactical".

Tactical: cost's twice what it should. A kitchen steak knife will kill as well as the "tactical" blades. A Ruger Blackhawk single action will kill as well as the "tactical" HK. It's all marketing to get twice the price. IMO [smoke]

It's a heirarchy kind of thing. Strategy is the overall plan. Like, "the strategy to defeat the enemy will include cutting his supply lines". Tactics are how you implement the strategy. Such as, "Our tactics include the use of indigenous personnel to interdict the enemy's supply lines". The use of the word tactical as applied to merchandise, is a marketing ploy designed to evoke a kind of "high speed, low drag" impression of quality to the item. edited fer spellin'!

They need a way to differentiate between professional mall ninjas and wannabes.
