I was proud to be part of the work force and felt like I was on my way to becoming a man. I always thought that a mans JOB and the work ethic he showed in doing it , was a lage factor in the measure of a man. Dang --------------------I guess I just answered my own question ----------------- carry on
      I have always used the term "gig". Maybe I'm just a wanna be child of the 60's. And besides, I used to own a lime green leisure suit - and man, I looked far out in it.

      I take great pride in what I do at both my career and vollie gig, by the way.

        LA -- I really hope you take pride in your JOB - both paid and un paid - still the term gig -to me means something temporary you stumbled on to , to make a little "scratch" (hows that for a 60s term?) untill something else pops up. I guess just me , but it (the term gig) is not the same a your JOB. And have you not lived in LA long enough to learn that a gig has three prongs and is used in the swamp ?
        ?

            Sometimes I play a gig with my band and we get paid, so I guess it can be a job...

              I don't live in da swamps of LA - We're up here in da mountains at a whooping 181 ft above sea level. We're in timber country!

              I guess to me gig and job are interchangable. That's OK, as I still listen to the grateful dead, Jefferson Airplane, Cream, Moot the Hoople, Uriah Heep and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band.

                        I wear a 1970's Cairns 5A. Best year for leather. However I just got my hands on a new G5A and am quite impressed.

                          I am sure it is the construction/materials, but still...
                          The Ben II Shell itself meets the NFPA standards so no impact cap is needed. No leather shell on the market can meet the penetration and impact standard on it's own.
