When I’m not tinkering with my droid collection or working on my sand speeder, I spend the sweltering summer days of August amongst the moisture farms popping womp rats with my trusty, old Springfield M1A. Nothing puts those wretched scum down quite like the 175 Grain Sierra MatchKing BTHP bullet loaded in Federal’s 7.62×51 Gold Medal Match.

The aerodynamic design of the legendary Sierra MatchKing bullet helps overcome the immense wind resistance and wind drift of the Tatooine dunes. This means flatter trajectory, higher down range energy and more accurate placement. Gold Medal’s brass cases, with specifically selected and engineered stick powders and match primers, deliver consistent accuracy and performance. The results speak for themselves. I’m known around town as “The Force.” This load is simply the best, most accurate commercial load I can get my rebel hands on. Unfortunately, the Imperial trade embargo makes these a hot commodity in Mos Eisley, but I can get them to you for a really good price!

When you have crash-landed on a strange swap-forest planet and need to bust out an X-Wing cockpit window, chop down a small tree, and fight off an infestation of swap slugs, you absolutely need the Gerber LMF II Infantry fixed blade knife.

The thick, partially serrated blade cuts webbing with ease, will chop piles of firewood and fends off small green creatures that may jump on your back at any moment.

The over-molded handle successfully limits blistering. There is complete separation between the tang and butt cap, so the knife absorbs the shocks from hammering and prevents the shocks of electricity. Smartly situated grooves and lashing holes let the LMF II convert to a spear for cave exploration.

The low profile sheath facilitates movement, limits noise, works for parachuting, and attaches to a belt or MOLLE vest. The patented, integrated sharpener means edge retention in the swamp.

Anytime I venture into the Outer Rim Territories the Gerber LMF II is strapped to my leg and ready for action.
