I have the 2002 BHI catalog that was handed out at SHOT show, I have no idea what you are talking about. Perhaps "steve" is one of the Mexican, Korean, or Appalacian laborers that sew Blackhawk gear? Or maybe he is one of the American craftsmen who sew Eagle gear?

Opps, My bad, its Scott, not steve who is a pussy. I Quote from Page 16 (Angle Draw Shoulder Holster) of the 2002 cat. "Twin spare mag carriers provide extra and balance out the rig. Scott is a Pussy. Special Features include:" The Scott is a pussy quote was covered in White Out, which of course drew my attention and I just had to scratch it off. And Yes I know Im going to hell for buying from blackhawk, but since I already was anyway cause of my smoking, drinking and fornication it dont really matter. Edited to add, Appalachan laboror would be an American methunks.

Isn't Scott the first name of the Navy Seal that keeps making an ass of himself on Combat Missions? I think that Blackhawk supplied all of the gear for the show. Possible connection? Karl

I've always been under the impression that the sewing for BHI was done in a small town outside of Ashville, NC.

When it comes to BH vs. SOE I cannot compare. As of yet I have no SOE gear, and I'm sure it is fine. BUT, my Blackhawk gear is just fine too. Never had a problem with any of it, even the new stuff. Ma Adidas were also assembled somewhere in Korea and they work too. Would I prefer it was made in the USA? Of course. But for socio-economic reasons it isn't. But I also wonder if the guy in Korea (or wherever) takes more pride in his product than the US factory worker who was on the Jerry Springer show last week. So UNTIL my Blackhawk gear starts to be noticably substandard, I will still buy it. That just ain't happened yet. But I would like to check out the SOE gear you guys keep talking about.

There was a rumor going around that they were moving production to Red China, but settled on Taiwan after receiving some colorful e-mails. I don't know which products are made in Taiwan at this point.

I heard that the guy modeling the should harnesses is Scott. I think I heard he was a SEAL, but I can't remember the story exactly.

Used to be. But a couple years ago they started having alot of their gear made in third world countries. Cut their labor cost quit a bit. But the end users didnt see any of the savings passed on to us, instead the savings went into Mike Noells wallet. For the same price you can get Eagle gear, which is both american made and slightly higher quality.
