own a piece of the action

As with so many trade shows, my understanding is that there is not a lot of buying going on at SHOT Show; there is a lot of meeting with people who sell and purchase things, of course, but you generally cannot go in, fork over cash, and walk out with X item. 

Owen Martin, the proprietor of Snake Hound Machine, understands how frustrating it can be to the “want it now crowd” to happen […]

inforce wml and streamlight tlr-2, a comparison

(Note:  I am well aware that the TLR-2 has an underslung laser and the WML does not.  I will do my best to notate where the existence of that laser affects the comparison, and the laser itself was not used in any of the performance/run-down tests.  Unfortunately, I did not have a TLR-1, so I had to make do with what I had.) 

As a recent negligent discharge adequately illustrates, one of the most […]

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.

My personal goal was to get this shindig to four digits, and I am starting to think that might actually be possible.

So, to encourage you wonderful folks to open your wallets a little wider, I […]

flipside wallet, follow-up

As hard as it is to take pictures of firearms without highlighting the scratches in their finishes, you would think taking pictures of a plastic wallet to show the scratches would be easier… 

Anywise, back in May, the good folks at FlipSide Wallet provided me a test-and-evaluation unit after I sent my old, leather wallet on an unscheduled washing machine excursion.  Since then, it has served as my primary wallet, spending all of its […]

flipside wallet, in review

Just under two weeks ago, I put up a post documenting one facet of my recent wallet-shopping – an endeavor precipitated by my previous one taking an unscheduled and undesired trip through our washing machine.  At the time, I mentioned two distinct possibilities – the Flipside 2x Wallet and the Saddleback Leather Company Medium Bifold Wallet – and threw in the usual half-serious, half-joking line that if either company wanted to send me one of […]
