greetings from sunny Southwest Florida. At least today was decent, I was able to take the jacket.
I've recently gotten into prepping and "being prepared" and during this quest for the perfect EDC bag, I found ITS. I learned about the Muster and now I want to do one so bam, here I am.
Side note and two questions: I received one of those $500 casino chips, what do I do with it? These patches, it seems like people love them, what are they for? Are they sort of like baseball cards for kids? not really any particular value or function but he who has the most is the coolest? Help me figure this all out.

And yeah, all that stuff is just collecting stuff. Sometimes guys trade them at training days or meet ups. I keep most of my collection to patches or challenge coins I got for doing something. Or being part of a unit. Some of it though, I got just cuz I thought is was cool. Or it fit my personality that week. It's really nothing to get too hung up about. It can be fun, or something you don't care to get into.

ok makes sense. I just noticed on some of the tags of things I bought that they have little 1 point collect and save deals. Is this just a fun way to take up extra space on the tag or are these something I should actually save?

ITS will sometimes have exclusive give away that cost so many points. The last one was a special Skully patch that has never been, and from what I understand, will never be for sale. You can save em or not. I think the give aways are generally patch related however.

Does anyone have any reviews of the muster? I found ITS while looking for a "gray man" messenger bag and then got carried down the rabbit hole and learned about the muster and so got a membership. I'm interested in doing this years and was just wondering if anyone had any reviews or thoughts on previous ones. Is it something that if you don't book the first hour, you are SOL?

Long time lurker, first time poster. My name is Marcos Rodriguez, I am a security research with Cisco's Talos group. I am a former Army infantryman and love all things related to physical/computer security and red team activities. Great to meet you all!

What's up everybody.. I'm Ian and I'm from Newark NJ. I served in the US Army as a Military Police Officer from 2007 to 2012 at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri with the 463d MP Company, 252d MP Detachment, and the 13th MP Company as part of Task Force Phoenix. Since then I've been bouncing around a lot trying to find my footing, but for the past 3 years now I've been working for Waste Management in Philadelphia PA and now live in southern NJ.
I really like EDC and tradecraft type gear and skills. Also a huge fan of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Before my time as a soldier I used to be a amateur powerlifter so I tend to follow a lot of that stuff too. I don't currently own a firearm, but I'm shopping around for one, so if anyone has a recommendations of something I should check out at the range, I'm all ears.

Hola from Colorado. I'm Pete and I've been a government lackey/minion in some form since '91. I started out in Utah as a Fed/GS-2 and from there I said "Let's join the Air Force so I can pay for college". I did an active duty enlistment with Security Police (now Security Forces). I left that to be a County Detentions Deputy in Colorado. I left that for Police (mostly Narcotics Detective) work. I retired (early) from there to go to the State to be a Criminal Investigator. I tried that for a little while and am back where I started with the Fed but at a slightly higher GS. Not to leave things undone I have continued my military career through the Reserves (still Security Forces) and probably have to retire soon. Unable to leave law enforcement behind I am also a Reserve Deputy.

New to the forum (Duh...)
I'm Martin Payne. I've always been impressed with ITS and its mission to develop and market great kit, but even more so with its dedication to creating knowledge. A terrific combination.
I'm a former paramedic who lost his mind some years ago and went to medical school... I practice emergency medicine as well as hospice and palliative care. I did USAR for about 15 years and have been the doc for my local SWAT team for the last 12 years. Looking forward to learning more from this diverse group!
