In seeing trends and crazes, lots of times you have to rub you brow and wonder out loud what some people are thinking. I've had that feeling for several weeks and I'll tell you what I did. As many of you know, my wife and I go to the same coffee bar, originally because it was just on the way home. In doing that, we have made numerous friends who are baristas. One of them is a Hunger Games fan, and also a real-deal archer in her personal life. She looks a little like the actress who played Katniss, and so she used hair and make-up to dress up for the first midnight showing of the film when it opened here. Like many folks, she got caught up in the lore. And like many people, there comes a fine line between fantasy and reality. Consider the movie "Fight Club." She's a good kid, and I had some concerns. In my job, I sell items to cops, soldiers, survivalists and the EMS. These aren't toys, my soldiers take my knives to the middle-east when they get deployed. I make sure they have the best stuff I can find. (Go google Zero Tolerance knives.) So, last week I contacted my rep for ESEE knives and told him to send me their "two pack" of survivalist arrowheads. These tips are worlds away from "target archery equipment." These broadheads are desinged to kill in the most dire conditions. Last night my wife and went to the coffee bar, and the found this barista sitting there on her day off, reading books, having coffee and in a relaxed mood. I told her of my concerns and beliefs. It was more of a confirmation. We asked her if we could discuss this overall topic. The tips come in a ballistic nylon sheath in rubberized pockets, and are convenient to store in a field jacket or possibles pouch/bag. I held them out, and she extended her hand. I told her plainly, "This is now a dividing line. From this moment on, your point of view might change. You have the skills, the tools, the stamina gained by hunting with your father, and now the final piece--tools made to kill. You will in fact become a real Katniss." At first she smiled and took the gift. My wife and I had about a twenty minute serious conversation on breaking the fourth wall. Knowing I will see her within a few days when she makes my coffee, I asked her to discuss this issue with her boy friend and her father. She agreed it was a good idea. I have a very good guess on what will happen. It's one thing to swing around a plastic lightsaber when standing in line for movie tickets. It's quite another to throw a real punch, deliberately put a man on his back in violent confrontation in a saloon, and now being in possession of tools that can easily take life. My guess is that her perspective will change over the next few days.
