SHOT Follow-Up: Fishbones and 550 Cord

Fishbone_550Cord_Doubled One of the guys at SHOT mentioned this project to me and although its not as sexy as an unobtanium plated rifle or bulletproof combat shirt I thought you might be interested anyway. 550 cord is (rightfully) ubiquitous and this appears to be a simple, effective way to secure it. It's the brainchild of LVPD LEO Brent Garcia and uses friction to hold the paracord in place. I could see this being an excellent piece of kit for field expediency. The only thing I wonder is if there will be any in darker colors - obviously there won't be a huge demand for shiny stainless steel out in the field, but that wouldn't prevent its use around tents or mixed in with personal gear.
