wts: two airsoft rifles

Well, after living here a year, I have come to the conclusion that I do not have the time and money to make a two-hour round-trip to play at a somewhat miniaturized airsoft field and pay a rather inflated price to do so.  So, rather than allow my airsoft rifles to continue to take up space in my attic, I am hoping to find them a new home where they will actually be used. 


12 hours left on the defender

If you were hoping to get a pretty awesome truck at a pretty decent price, you have 12 more hours to hop on the eBay auction for my 1985 / 1995 Land Rover Defender 90. 

You know you want it. Hell, I want it, if it were not for the fact that we were already over-budget on it.  But I am sure it will serve someone in good stead for a number of […]

‘walls of the city’ patches

Remember that awesome new logo Oleg Volk dreamed up and I somehow managed to cobble together? 

Remember how I promised I would make up patches of that logo? 

Remember how the shipment was on its way? 

And remember how fundraisers, moves, job hunts, and busted-ass vehicles got in the way of me actually selling the bloody things? 

Well, ok, you might have missed that last item, but not the repercussions of […]

knoxville home for sale

Not sure if any of my readers would be interested, but if anyone is looking for a contemporary, 3000+ square-foot, 4 bedroom / 2.5 bathroom, two-floor-plus-finished-basement house on half an acre that recently had its kitchen, living room, dining room, powder room, and master bathroom completely renovated from the floor panels up and that is very convenient to West Knoxville shopping, let me know. 

I might have a lead on one… 

gunauction.com does not understand the internet

Yesterday, I received this email, twice, with the subject of “we want your blog – http://wallsofthecity.net”: 

Dear [Linoge],

My name is David Smith and I work for GunAuction.com. Your website, http://wallsofthecity.net has sparked our interest. Recently we have realized that we are in need of high ranking blogs about guns. Our company is working to build a blog network that will be seen by millions. With gun rights under attack, we want to create […]

still for sale: 2008 pre-production mustang bullitt

Remember that Pre-Production Mustang Bullitt I have for sale?  It is still for sale, it is still awesome, and its asking price is down to $20,000 or best offer.  Its mileage just went past 67,000, but aside from that, nothing much else has changed.  This car needs to be gone out of my driveway by the end of the month, so make whatever offer you feel like you can back; I am willing to entertain […]

mustang bullitts – a future classic

If you are having difficulty deciding whether or not to jump on the pre-production 2008 Mustang Bullitt I have for sale here, allow me to present to you the hypothesis that the 2008 Bullitts will be “classics” for the next generation. 

If, like me, you do not like giving the notoriously anti-rights Gawker Media any pageviews, here are the high points: 

What I like most about this Bullitt is that it’s kind of […]

for sale: 2008 pre-production mustang bullitt

Own a piece of history!

In 1968, Steve McQueen charged across the screen in the critically acclaimed movie “Bullitt“, which featured one of the best car chase scenes in all of Hollywood’s history. However, one of the biggest characters in the movie never had any speaking lines – a 1968 390 V8 Ford Mustang GT Fastback painted in, of course, hunter green.

40 years later, Ford released the 2008 Bullitt Edition Mustang GT, but before […]

looks like a puma

That monstrosity I found on the interwebs is still for sale (the listing expired, but I am sure it will be back up). Color me not-at-all surprised… I still kind of want it, though.

I could really live with this, though:

Yup, that is a fully-functional, street-legal (at least in once-Great Britain) Warthog, built off a 1982 Land Rover Defender 110 with the 2.5L Diesel, for sale for any "reasonable offer" around […]

still for sale: cbrps white standard mosin-nagant stock


Since neither person who was supposedly interested in the White Standard CBRPS Mosin-Nagant stock I have for sale ever bothered to respond to emails, the stock is still for sale, and still at $275 OBO.

If you are interested, leave a comment here, or email me at "linoge (at) wallsofthecity (dot) net".

I know you know someone for whom this would make an awesome […]

for sale: cbrps white standard mosin-nagant stock


Well, I was going to disassemble this thing and spray-paint it silver, since it needs to be painted something and I just wrapped up painting a shower rod (who in their right mind makes a shower rod out of a material that can rust?), but the thought struck me that there might be some folks out there who want the stock in its original white coloration. […]

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 […]

wts: lightly upgraded / lightly used a&k masada

Got one lightly upgraded, lightly used A&K Masada in black for sale. Taken it to 3-4 games, put maybe 3k-4k BBs through it (I am not a spray-and-pray-er). Modifications consist of:

1x CNC Hop Up Unit (the original was plastic, also have the CNC Air Nozzle that came with it, not installed). 1x Mad Bull 6.03 363mm inner barrel Red Mad Bull bucking

Yeah, I know, not much. The rifle will include its original […]

more hardware for sale

My Open Top revolver is still for sale if anyone is interested, but if that does not suit your fancy, ZerCool has quite a few firearms for sale, including a S&W 28-2 Highway Patrolman, an Interarms Virginia Dragoon, and a Thompson-Center Contender pistol, among other things… He is having to sell them due to unfortunate circumstances, so go take a look and see if anything catches your eye. [Update] And he has added pictures, which […]

just a nosey question

Why are gun owners such lousy negotiatiors? The appropriate response to, “I am willing to sell X for $Y, OBO,” is not to write back and ask, “So, what is your bottom-dollar price?”

Does the term “counteroffer” mean nothing to people?

open top for sale

Since it does not seem to be moving very quickly just from the posting I made here, I went ahead and listed my Uberti Replica 1871-1872 Early Model Open Top .45 Long Colt Single Action Revolver in Armslist (dang, that is a mouthful). I really have no idea how many people use that system, or even if it will get any kind of useful exposure, but something is better than nothing, and that is all […]
