Speaking of Christmas presents, I still have a number of Russian Origami t-shirts in inventory, all Larges, X-Larges, and XX-Larges (i.e. no Mediums or XXX-Larges left).
In the interests of getting the out of my house and maybe under one of your trees, from now until the 18th, I am offering free shipping on any quantity of shirts.
If you want this deal, email me directly; do NOT use the order form on [...]
We have talked before about how easy it is to manufacture firearms out of spare parts and whatever you might find in your average home mechanic’s shop or auto garage, but this… well, this is a first.
Today we bring you the story of an AK-pattern rifle being made out of… a shovel. No, seriously. Read the whole post, I promise it is worth it.
The shovel cost $2. The barrel blank cost $30. [...]
Hey, I know that shirt! And that one too!
And that one!
And even that one!
I wonder where you could get one of your own…
I just sent off an order of 10 Russian Origami t-shirts to one of the better-known AK-47 fabricators/assemblers here in the States, for inclusion into their online store; I can only assume / hope that once people get wind of them there, my stock is going to be depleted somewhat rapidly.
Not sure what they are planning on charging, but since they are reselling, it is probably going to be more than I am; [...]
Two-dozen shirts down, another sixty-odd to go before you all buy as many as you said you would. As if I needed further evidence that online polls are not scientific nor necessarily representative of reality.
In any case, the Russian Origami t-shirts are still for sale, and I still have inventory in all sizes (M-XXXL), so get your order in now! And I do mean that seriously, with not a lot of hyperbole – [...]
It probably got buried beneath the massive wall of text immediately below this post, but the "Russian Origami" t-shirts are real, they are live, and they are shipping out now. In fact, I just boxed up three t-shirts to send off to someone down in Australia, which might be the first time I have ever shipped anything internationally (also, holy crap, I have created something that someone Down Under is willing to pay the shipping [...]
First off, check out the new “walls of the city” logo featured in the header image, the favicon for the site, and in the image to the right. The concept is courtesy of none other than Oleg Volk, though I personally sketched out the design you see before you now.
Pretty shiny, no?
So that is the easy part… now the more complicated part:
We have t-shirts… and stickers! (Also, the link [...]
(For clarification, since you cannot quite read them, these are these t-shirts, only really-real.)
So the good news is that they did not have to do the whole “print it in white” first bit, so the finalized prices will be $19 for M-XL, $20 for XXL, and $21 for XXXL, plus shipping.
The bad news is that I am going to be out of town next weekend, so much though I cannot [...]
An AK-pattern-ish rifle that takes STANAG 5.56 magazines, and does so fresh from the factory? Where do I sign?
Unfortunately they are not likely to be imported any time soon, and will not be imported in general in that configuration (specifically the presence of the pistol grip, and possibly the existence of >10-round magazines), but, still, that is a very interesting development indeed. At least to me; my Saiga-12 has shown me that there [...]
So the designs – the one you see to the right as well as the new logo you have not seen yet – got sent off to the printer last week, we finalized the order this week, and I think they ordered the t-shirt blanks yesterday or today. They anticipate having those blanks in-hand by the end of the week, and the printed shirts to me by 04OCT12.
Brief rundown of where we [...]
First up, since the question has arisen regarding American Apparel’s sizing versus everyone else’s, here are some pictures of my ENDO Apparel AR-15 Selector Switch shirt (printed on an XL American Apparel blank) underneath my Gunwalker shirt (printed on a Large Gildan blank):
As you can see, the American Apparel XL is wider in the chest and belly areas than the Gildan Large, but is narrower at the shoulders and has [...]
If you have not voted in this poll:
…or left your comment regarding number and/or size, please do so now. I am hoping to put in the order at the screen printer’s this weekend, and while I am planning on buying some multiple more than people pledge for, I want to ensure everyone who wants a t-shirt is going to be able to get one.
Likewise, at this point, I do [...]
All of us look at certain situations through the perspectives of our own experience, and I will freely and openly admit that I considered the aforeposted ammunition and magazine idiocies from the perspective of a consumer, a recreational shooter, and a person who values his individual rights and freedoms.
However, Owen Martin, the proprietor of AllAK47.com and Snake Hound Machine, looks at such things from the perspective of wanting to feed his family; a [...]
You may recognize the person "voting from the rooftops" here, but I rather prefer the shooter featured here, here, here, and here.
The photography was, of course, done by the inimitable Oleg Volk and the props, including the Hummer, were provided by Wolf Arms (except the Vera SBS Saiga, which was, of course, provided by Coal Creek Armory), who are coincidentally owned by the same folks as Tennessee Guns International; I only mention the [...]
… Because now I am seriously considering acquiring a “real” AK-pattern firearm just because I can (and, no, Vera does not count; she may look the same, but damn).
So what brought about this sudden interest? Only Our Glorious President mouthing off and proving himself to be the petty “gun control” authoritarian we always knew him to be:
“I – like most Americans – believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the [...]
At 1138 today, 1 With a Bullet made the correct guess of "Short Barrel Saiga", and, in fairness, lucusloc was this close on the very first picture, but he went a slightly different direction with his guess.
Anywise, here is the new toy:
Not my best work, but this week has been crazy busy at work, so I have not had a chance to take any more pictures… you can [...]
C. J. Chivers‘s The Gun just got reviewed on Woot.com, and fairly positively at that.
If that does not constitute another example of how we are winning, I do not know what would.
I have mentioned Chivers’ work in the past, but this also serves as a reminder that I need to type up my own review of it as well at some point… The short-and-sweet, however, is, “You need to read this, [...]
