hard way = join an Airborne Unit and pass P Coy etc, then get yourself on eBay because there are none in stores, because they are all being sold on e-bay for a mint..........do you see where I'm going here.
If you've done most of the hard bit already then I embrace you as a brother.
Just wear the issue one you Walting bafoon. So what they are lighter and more comfortable etc. Why spend money out on sh1t that they issue you. Dont fix whats not broken! If by some freak of nature there is a desperate reason you need one Im sure if you slipped a scouse PARA some bunce he would box you off!
