Current Total Donation Amount: (0700 01APR13)
The rules are a little different than last year’s exercise, so pay attention.
How to Earn a Ticket:
1. Every five dollars you donate directly to Honored American Veterans Afield nets you one numbered ticket. 2. DO NOT SEND ME MONEY. All money and goods should go directly to HAVA. 3. [...]
In just the few days since my last update, I have some more good news for you.
First, I will be giving away an Ally .22 Silencer from York Arms. All National Firearms Act rules and state laws apply, so you will have to pay the $200 tax stamp and fill out the paperwork, and if you live in a state that does not allow you to own such things, you are kind of [...]
Speaking of Christmas presents, I still have a number of Russian Origami t-shirts in inventory, all Larges, X-Larges, and XX-Larges (i.e. no Mediums or XXX-Larges left).
In the interests of getting the out of my house and maybe under one of your trees, from now until the 18th, I am offering free shipping on any quantity of shirts.
If you want this deal, email me directly; do NOT use the order form on [...]
A slightly different take on the previous design:
(Idea inspired by Skas182.)
Spent all day at a gun show. Do not have much content to show for it (might have something in the near future), but I did finally break even on my Russian Origami t-shirts… so, what do you all think of this:
This coloration (a good suggestion from MAJ Mike) is only available in not-made-in-the-USA t-shirts, but it does not seem as though that particular feature was as big a selling point as [...]
Hopefully everyone had a good, happy, safe, and filling Thanksgiving with your loved ones / families / brothers-in-arms / whomever else you might have spent it with. We actually had dinner at Cracker Barrel – no joke – and had to wait somewhere around 30 minutes to get a table; the food was decent (very good turkey and ham), and the price ($9 a person) could not be beaten, especially once you factor in [...]
Hey, I know that shirt! And that one too!
And that one!
And even that one!
I wonder where you could get one of your own…
I just sent off an order of 10 Russian Origami t-shirts to one of the better-known AK-47 fabricators/assemblers here in the States, for inclusion into their online store; I can only assume / hope that once people get wind of them there, my stock is going to be depleted somewhat rapidly.
Not sure what they are planning on charging, but since they are reselling, it is probably going to be more than I am; [...]
Two-dozen shirts down, another sixty-odd to go before you all buy as many as you said you would. As if I needed further evidence that online polls are not scientific nor necessarily representative of reality.
In any case, the Russian Origami t-shirts are still for sale, and I still have inventory in all sizes (M-XXXL), so get your order in now! And I do mean that seriously, with not a lot of hyperbole – [...]
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 [...]
First off, check out the new “walls of the city” logo featured in the header image, the favicon for the site, and in the image to the right. The concept is courtesy of none other than Oleg Volk, though I personally sketched out the design you see before you now.
Pretty shiny, no?
So that is the easy part… now the more complicated part:
We have t-shirts… and stickers! (Also, the link [...]
(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 [...]
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.
Brief rundown of where we [...]
First up, since the question has arisen regarding American Apparel’s sizing versus everyone else’s, here are some pictures of my ENDO Apparel AR-15 Selector Switch shirt (printed on an XL American Apparel blank) underneath my Gunwalker shirt (printed on a Large Gildan blank):
As you can see, the American Apparel XL is wider in the chest and belly areas than the Gildan Large, but is narrower at the shoulders and has [...]
If you have not voted in this poll:
Would you buy a t-shirt with this graphic on it for $20?
Yeah, I could probably spring for 1. Put me down for 2. 3 please, for the fire team. I have to clothe the family; 4. 5 or more, ’cause I am awesome.
…or left your comment regarding number and/or size, please [...]
It looks like ENDO-Mike – the remarkably patient, helpful guy who writes a pretty kick-ass weblog and who makes some pretty kick-ass shirts – is expanding his online presence a little; he has launched MILcentric, a site specializing in "military fashion, design, and anything else I feel is military inspired", and already has a passel of posts up there.
If his other site is any indication, this one will be worth adding to your [...]
Or trust, depending on how you look at it.
Say I just devised a somewhat good – at least in my opinion – t-shirt design and wanted to put it up for you all to buy. Would you prefer going through CafePress, or would you prefer going through me?
On the one hand, CP (or some similar company) provides you the security of a corporate guarantee, the ability to not use PayPal, and [...]
I am a fan of ENDO Apparel’s line of t-shirts, there is no doubt about it. The shirts he uses are just amazingly soft, the designs are delightfully poignant, and some of them definitely fall under the “winkwinknudgenudge” category.
So when the genius behind them hit me up a few days ago and asked if I wanted another one, my answer was pretty obvious.
And, yes, I am a member of that auspicious [...]
