earn yourself some free swag

As previously mentioned, I will unfortunately not be attending SHOT Show this year… however, as a recent anonymous coward reminded me, one of my Eastern Tennessee Monster Hunter International patches is still up for grabs for those lucky folks who are going.  What do you have to do to earn this patch?  Simple: 

To all you lucky bastards going to SHOT Show this year, take heed!  I have a few Eastern TN Monster Hunter [...]

tactical sporran

Dragon Leatherworks makes some classy sporrans – I do not think anyone can dispute that – but this, ladies and gentlepeople, is a proper tactical sporran: 

That is a Maxpedition Mil-Spec Monkey Admin Pouch with some very appropriate patches on it.  In fact, the only patches it is missing are one I have not made yet, and one I have not earned yet.  Gotta love the storage capabilities of modern “tactical” kilts…

dragon leatherworks, in the news

We all know that Dragon Leatherworks makes good holsters, but now more of Eastern Tennessee can find out (if you are using an RSS reader, you will probably have to click through to see the video):  

Yup, that would be Dennis, the proprietor, on regional television during prime-time on a Friday evening, and I have to admit that I am remarkably impressed at how positive and salutary the segment was. 

I mean, [...]

paul helinski, meet the internet

By now, you are probably well aware of the difficulties Paul Helinski, the president (?) of GunsAmerica and current sufferer of faragosis, is having comprehending how the internet works.

Well, just over two days ago, I issued the following challenge to my readers:

To all you lucky bastards going to SHOT Show this year, take heed! I have a few Eastern TN Monster Hunter International patches left, and I will send one patch, [...]

paul helinski just does not know when to quit

Paul Helinski, president of GunsAmerica, simply does not understand the Internet or how it works.  This profound ignorance is rather surprising in this day and age, especially since he claims to have been using the “network of tubes” for the past 15 years or so, but being the gracious and generous person I am, I took it upon myself to try to correct this oversight yesterday. 

Apparently, I was too late: 

Alas, I [...]

soldiers’ angels fundraiser and giveaway

This post will be sticky until the fundraiser concludes. Please scroll down for new posts.

[1900 10JAN12 Update: Changes/updates to this page since 2100 03JAN12 have been italicized.]

I knew announcing the Soldiers’ Angels Fundraiser and Giveaway the week before Thanksgiving was kind of a bad idea, but I wanted to get it out there and get the ball rolling, and now we are going to go back, go over the details, and pimp [...]

support your overseas soldier

Hopefully you have already decided where your Thanksgiving dinner is going to be held, and you are working on the setting for your Christmas festivities, but not all of us have the ability to make such plans for the impending holidays. Having had the distinct… "privilege"… of being away from home for a back-to-back Thanksgiving and Christmas, I can personally attest to just how much it sucks to miss out on those festive occasions by [...]

i come bearing patches

Look what the nice FedEx delivery person left for me today (minus a crazy cross-country expedition): 

Want one?  Drop me an email at “linoge (at) wallsofthecity (dot) net” or leave a comment here with an email address I can reach you at.

in real life

I have to admit, it is kind of cool to see an idea come to fruition. 

As a reminder, go here and vote for the above patch by leaving a comment including either the words “Eastern Tennessee Monster Hunters” or “In God we trust, all others we nuke”; if you do, and you are interested, we will work out how to hook you up with an example or two of the above awesomeness*.  [...]

and all this is happening in december…

Well, for all you hard-core folks who were whinging about how Eastern Tennessee shut down for three inches of snow, this should make you feel even more awesome: we are currently still at home, and probably for the rest of the day, thanks to about 1/8″ of slick-assed, solid ice covered in 1/8″ of standing water… and that describes Better Half’s car, our driveway, and our street. Oh, and it is completely overcast and misty [...]
