    I thought they had the cost of the M1icon rifle down to $35...? Looking at the costs though, one could pay cash for the whole kit layout. Send the mudroller off in a bath towel.

    The pressed fibre sun helmet was designed by Jesse Hawley and patented in 1935 it is the longest serving headgear in the US arsenal. Hawley Products is located in my town of residence and was headquartered in the next town Geneva, IL, my brother worked for Hawley in the late 1960's.

    My father was beginning to go bald when, as a young lad, he was discharged from the Navy after WWII. By the early '60s he was doing field experiments on a boat and needed protection from the sun. He bought a Hawley helmet from the local surplus store, spray painted it white, and never looked back. That hat served him for over forty years whenever he had to go out in the sun for any length of time. What a memory.
