    man I'm kind of inspired by all the paracord stuff I found. Think I'll try to make something on that long 16 hour drive up to the R and R racing match I'm shooting this weekend.

    Actually, they look pretty cool. Very different. Reminds me of those friendship bracelets I used to make in Jr. High.

    IMO, it would be cool to make on into a rifle sling or EDC bag strap. Much more cord available in the event of a survival situation. I guess any kind of strap, belt, lanyard, etc. could be made with this stuff.

    Lots of colors on Ebay.

    Rifle sling could be pretty nifty, definitely a BOB strap.... might have to make my own.

    I was seriously considering ordering the keyfob thing from this place:

    http://www.survivalstraps.com/page7/page7.html

    The owner posts on SigForum.

    They do lanyards, keyfobs, bracelets, anklets, dog collars, zipper pulls, watch straps, etc. They also donate a portion of the profits to the Wounded Warrior Project for soldiers injured in combat.

    They have tons of colors and will do whatever colors you want. I dig the red/white/blue one below.

    I've been a paracord buff for a few years now, and I wear my bracelet regularly. Just OD green 550 with a button sewn on to one end and a loop on the other.

    Check this guy out if you like this shit. He does some ridiculous stuff.

    Also, if you spend any money to buy paracord anything, you're probably getting ripped off. Para is cheap and easy to use; try it out!
