I am a Marine and currently stationed in Okinawa, Japan. We, as Marines, have an annual event called the Rifle Range to test our proficiency with a weapon. It was mid April here and it was raining like no other. I have a Leatherman Charge that just so happens to be nice on the rifle range because I can make front site tip adjustments quite easily. I was using this amazing creation to do so and the Marines around me asked if they could borrow it. The next thing I knew, I was walking down the entire firing line trying to track down my Leatherman. Luckily I did and it was just fine.
Just so you know, there were at least 150 Marines on the firing line and many of the Marines were so impressed with the Leatherman that the next day at least 50 or 60 of them had their own - black and silver Charges, Waves, and an assortment of others - if that isn't applied advertising I don't know what is.
I have owned several Leatherman for the past 8 years and would never trust another brand. I have tried several, but won't trust 'em as much as I do a Leatherman. There are more stories where that one came from, too.
