Tactical beards at SHOT 2017 (12 PICS)

The origins of tactical facial hair can be traced back a dozen or so years. Men, wanting to increase their tactical prowess, started growing exceptionally long beards and grooming them magnificently. Since then, many have fallen under the spell of the beard, believing it has supernatural powers.

Whether or not this is true has never been proven. But one thing is certain: those who wandered down the hairy path have a certain stealth in their step and twinkle in their eye. This post is dedicated to the men who have chosen to pursue the tactical beard in all its glory. Enjoy.
