    There was an article written awhile back about scuba diving on this blog.  It was mentioned that a DIY Tac Board navigation platform would be explained in a future article.  Did this ever happen or will it happen?  I have had an interest in this project and hope it is still in the works.

    If people want a folding stock so bad just purchase an FN SCAR. I have one and wouldn’t trade it for an M4/AR platform any day.  I mean folding stock, can be fired folded, and just as easy to field strip as an AR. 

    Just hey thats just me.

    Bryan- I totally heard this joke from Fozzy bear on Disney channel with my kids this morning. I remember you saying you have kids…so, gotta know- did you steal fozzy’s joke?

    PADI requirements changed. Now anyone can go from Rescue Diver straight to Divemaster (professional) as long as they have 40 dives and a CPR course and attain 60 dives by the end of the DM program.

    I went through a much tougher program that was a lot longer. I don’t remember all the details but it was done by hours rather than dives and had a bunch of other requirements.

    Great SCUBA gear intro Bryan! Wondering how you store your gear when you’re not using it? Thanks and stay safe, Greg. #GearTasting
