Dropped the idea on cf barrels. There's just not enough data on durability and having vent holes sounds like it'd take away from the particular strength cf has due to woven fibers. Still kicking around various ideas though, at least just for the fun of it. While i live in an urban area, my state is almost completely comprised of rolling plains, some forests, and some small mountains. Very very open outside of cities.

Talked with another friend who lives where I do and they think 6.5 might be the way to go for me

I normally just use a saw. But cutters are good if you plan on doing a lot

Having cut a lot of pvc, the cutters are definitely a good investment. They're cheap too.

10 bucks doesn't sound too bad for cutters

This isn’t something I typically do, but I’m lost. I don’t normally ask for help because I know quite a bit about gear. But I’m trying to decide whether I should invest into a better PC (I’m running Condor) or get my medical backpack squared away.

@[LA] Zoomer Medi/k/ I suspect that's what they're for but there are other applications that require large chem lights. Blue Force Gear makes a mag-sized small chem light dispenser that holds a bunch of tiny ones. You just flick them off the top like unloading a mag. Much more compact, lighter, can carry way more, and aren't nearly as conspicuous. Let me find the link...
