Almost November, and time to start coming up with those nifty Christmas stocking stuffers. Here's some ideas, kids!

Dig how the Monterey set even includes tiny pack of matches and Ronsonol lighter fluid can. The pedals are accurate too, check the Fuzz Face! McFarlane Toys does other rock icons as well.

There's some real dumbass stuff out there too, but these are pretty cool.

The term "Full Battle Rattle" refers to a soldier's full complement of gear; pack, weapons, survival items, etc. as carried on the battlefield.

Full Battle Rattle is also the name of a Veteran founded and run effort committed to providing music gear and lessons to Vets with PTSD issues. Combat Veteran Rob Mitchell (TED Video above) founded FBR which is also part of Desert Forge Foundation, a Vet's resource organization. These folks work to provide free instruments and lessons to Vets suffering from PTSD, and they need your support.
