"walls of the city" logo conceptualized by Oleg Volk and executed by Linoge. Logo is © "walls of the city".

famous on the internets

So I had the opportunity to hit up a Raleigh-Durham gun show today, and I cannot say as though I was disappointed. 

I was, however, heartily amused at the security theater that took place on the way in.  You walk up to a ticket both, hand the nice lady your money, and she hands you a ticket… which you hand to a gentleman not 10 steps away.  Then, the police officers manning the show […]

patch update

All patch orders I have received are in the mail as of today. 

For those folks who were paying me in a non-PayPal fashion, I have only received payment from one of you, I already shipped that order out, and I think the recipient already received it.  If you sent me money and I have not sent you a patch yet, please drop me an email and we will work it out. 

‘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 […]

hava fundraiser and monderno

So by now, everyone should be aware that I am getting patches stitched up with the new “walls of the city” logo (as conceptualized by Oleg Volk) on them, but they are going to be the traditional fabric patches that have been around since… forever. 

Not being folks satisfied with the status quo, however, the boys at Monderno went the high-speed-low-drag route, but in an awesome way: 

Yup, that is a patch, with […]

last call!

If you want a “walls of the city” patch, let me know before close of business tomorrow!  The order is going in sometime tomorrow afternoon, and, as I said, I have no real plans of doing another run, and I will not be procuring that many spares.  If you want one, speak up, or forever hold your peace. 

(And, by speaking up, I mean “leave a comment on this post or the one I […]

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 E. TN MHI and […]

patch update

By my count, including my 10 (which is a variable number), we are up to 53 patches ordered (at least as of this posting).  This means that all patches will cost $6 each; if we can make it to 100 ordered, that will go down to $5 each. 

Given the price drop, if you want to increase your order, leave a comment here or at the previous post. 

Likewise, once we get closer, […]

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…

setting a match to your target

Regular readers will know that Better Half and I are gearing up for attending an Appleseed shoot in the somewhat near future, and one of the interesting challenges put to me by my wife was to build or buy the lightest .22 rifle I could find; after all, a person’s energies should be focused on making the shot, not fighting the rifle.  After talking about the various pros and cons of each platforms, we decided […]

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*.  […]
