Not tacticool, but definitely tactile
Courtesy of a link at The Feral Irishman's place, we find the tactical version of neuticles or truck nuts: the TAC-SAC.
Apparently you're supposed to hang this thing off a Picatinny rail beneath the handguard of your battle rifle. If you didn't have the balls to fight before, you will have now!
I have absolutely no idea why anybody bothered to invent so stupid an add-on to a fighting weapon, let alone manufacture or distribute it. "Boys and their toys", indeed! All I can say is, if I were still in command of my unit in South Africa, and I found one of those on a rifle, its owner would be doing punishment push-ups before he could say, "But it's not against regulations!" He'd keep on doing them, too, until he'd learned some sense . . . or until he dropped dead. Given the monumental lack of intelligence indicated by putting them on his rifle to start with, I'm not sure which would occur first.
