Very lucky getting real TQs on ebay. I ordered 2 Gen 7 TQs from NAR today. If you want USPS priority shipping, need to call in the order and tell the CS guy. Shipping for 2 is $9, better than the 2 day air or ground shipping costs.
The good thing about this thread is it made me re-practice using the TQ's again and re-watch the videos for CAT and SOF-T again. Need to remember to practice this periodically. Also added some duct tape to my setup and group med bag to keep the windlass in place.
Thanks for the tip on ordering. Shipping is a sensitive issue for me and I have boycotted vendors for limiting shipping options to only expensive FedEx and UPS when I know USPS is reasonable.
Yeah, like anything, application of the TQ's isn't difficult, but when under stress and time to application is critical, one should practice. I haven't in a long time and this thread sort of reminded me that I should. While these are also designed to be applied one handed, it does take some practice.
