Gear

Well done — you’ve found your way to the geekiest spot on the site. Hardly anybody is interested in gear lists … mostly just other gear sluts. Our numbers are comparatively few, so odds are you don’t care about gear lists either. But that’s beside the point. They’re almost as much fun to write up as it is to play with the gear.
