    Yeah, I am aware of that. I was just making a statement that younger ones tend to be hot blooded and get into fights for the smallest of issues. This coupled with different characters, hyper- sensitivity and how badly the written text on forums project tone & mood and we have a recipe for disaster.

    Oh, you like to be strapped by leather?

    Jorgenl is that avatar picture actually of you or something else? If it is actually your picture, you look like a Viking who has gone through the Navy Seal program!

    Daaayuumm! Guessing you got some pricey OEM straps to hit that amount. I keep thinking it's time to get another OEM strap for my PAM 112. Got the assolutamente tan strap a while back....thinking time for a nice croc (around $450 AUD I think).

    I have several Greg Stevens Design straps, some yet to be mounted. I have one worn under every adverse condition I could think of, trying to see if I could actually wear it out. I was unsuccessful in doing so! I’ve done business with him for years. He is really a great guy!

    Nah.. I'm much better looking!

    The avatar is Ragnar Lothbruk from the series Vikings.

    Ragnar's hairstyle would not work for a Captain of Industry....

    Not so many expensive ones.

    2019:

    26 in total.
    16 NATOs.
    9 leather straps.
    1 Strapcode bracelet.

    I think I have 50+ straps.

    It is a disease

    My son grew up with ADD/HD and was beyond volatile as a kid. When he was 8 y/o I put him in karate so he was a brown belt at age 11 and black belt at age 15. The farther he advanced, the calmer and more self confident he became. That type of discipline made all the difference in the world for him. I think self control with youth is more related to self discipline than anything else which is basically what you’re saying.

    I would consider the King of the Vikings to be much higher than a mere Captain of Industry, yes?
