I'm a flip and can attest to this; especially when it comes to firearms. 1911's are the absolute norm, as well as all kinds of ARs.
I also remember during my last trip the amount of people rocking tons of clothing that had the American flag on it. Caps, tank top, even the damn flip flops i used for the majority of my stay had The U.S flag on it.
Hell, even our jeepney, the main mode of transportaion, is 100% based of the Willy's Jeep frame.
