pre-christmas sale

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 [...]

"gun control" is not going to dig itself out of this one

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. [...]

they are kind of ugly when undressed

I will not say I had nothing to do with this ongoing Snake Hound Machine build, but I will say you should probably keep an eye on it – the outcome may surprise you.

In other, related news, saying you will not buy from a business simply because the proprietor refuses to give his consent to be governed has to be one of the stupider things I have heard recently (and given the just-passed [...]

seen in the wild

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…

russian origami status

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; [...]

russian origami t-shirts – grab them now!

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 – [...]

helpful reminder

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 [...]

look what i have

(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 [...]

i have a thing for bastardizations like this

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 [...]

t-shirt update

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 [...]

russian origami – miscellany

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 [...]

Alright, it is time to put your money where your mouth is. Or at least near where your mouth might be.

[Update]  See below for an easy-to-use poll, instead of having to leave a comment.  Sizing information would still be useful, though, so email/comment with that if you can.  [/Update] 

After checking around on the intertubes for a little while, and hearing back from only one of the five or six local screen printers [...]

our rights are not the only things in danger

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 [...]

this weekend’s products

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 [...]

better half has another reason to dislike obama

… 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 [...]

quote of the day – jay g.

Dear "gun control" extremists, anti-rights cultists, and other petty authoritarians:

We are Americans, and, as such, our reflexive, borderline knee-jerk reaction to someone telling us that we cannot / should not do something is to utter some variation of, "Screw you," and go and do it anywise. This land was discovered (in the European sense) by people who abided by that mentality, this country was settled and founded by people who wholly embraced that [...]

the short verdict

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 [...]

normalization – the commercial edition

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, [...]
