hava fundraiser, preliminary details

Regular readers will know that I have been hinting at a fundraiser for Honored American Veterans Afield next month, and plans are currently in the works to make that happen. 

However, experience and observation has shown that combining a giveaway with the fundraiser tends to work out better for the organization I am fundraising for, so I am working on that as well.  Thus far I have some patches (both […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

monster hunter international, eastern tennessee branch

Take an angler fish, cross it with the ugliest toad you ever had the misfortune of laying eyes on, and blow the whole thing up until it was about two meters in diameter. That particular… creature… was what James Arthur was eyeing up through his riflescope this not-at-all-bright-but-way-too-damned early Tuesday morning. Personally, he would have taken the old myths and stories about spectral women wandering around in their nightgowns, but those old wives’ tales did […]

giving thanks, in more ways than one

Hopefully you all are currently enjoying some happy and thankful times with your families at the moment, but even though my Soldiers’ Angels fundraiser is only a little over a day old, I have some exciting news.

First, Jason over at Empty Mags has offered up one of his brand-spanking-new Tombstone Monster Hunter International patches as an additional prize. Check out that monster-whacking goodness!

Second, as of […]

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. 


your patch in stitches

Yup, I went and submitted it again.

Go forth and make your votes here (though I am fair certain the winner is already a given) – the patch that emerges victorious gets included in Larry Correia’s next Monster Hunter International book.

If it will help your decision process any, I should have a few of these in the coming […]
