Saturday, November 24th, 2018

Combining your love of baked goods and weapons

BOISE, IDAHO (November 21, 2018) – Do you remember when Kitfox Design Group broke the internet by creating a coloring book full of firearms? It’s hard to forget, since it sold like wildfire and was featured nearly everywhere. This time around Kitfox is releasing a set of five firearm themed cookie cutters. Available as of 9 a.m. Eastern Time today on the Kitfox Design Group website, there is no better way to express your love for firearms at Aunt Judith’s annual holiday party than a plate full of revolver shaped sugar cookies.

Some customers are already saying “that’s the most awesome thing I’ve seen in ages!” If you don’t think these cookie cutters are awesome and hilarious, go ahead and forward this along to someone with a sense of humor. The cookie cutters are quite literally perfect for every occasion.

Going to a boring holiday party and want to spice things up with some Krinkov shaped gingerbread cookies? You got it! “My wife and mother in law are giving me shady looks about the cookie cutters. I love it!” They’re sure to trigger your safe space loving blue haired cousin, too. Maybe you’re just taking it easy this holiday season, and simply want to eat a glock shaped keto shortbread cookie with your veteran-brewed coffee while wearing your Kalashnikov-themed ugly Christmas sweater.

It doesn’t matter what kind of cookies you make or how you decorate them – these cookie cutters are sure to create some sweet conversation about firearms this holiday season. That is ultimately the goal of Kitfox Design Group: creating the opportunity for positive conversations surrounding firearms without having to be at the range or at a gun counter. It doesn’t get much more American than this.

Kitfox Design Group is headed up by Sara Westman, a graphic designer and technical illustrator in the firearms industry, known for her Firearm Coloring Books and high detail firearm morale patches.

Military Warrior and Veteran to Receive Hero Mobility Machine

Wheelchairs for Warriors to Honor Combat Marine Injured and Amputated in War

Houston, Texas (September 28, 2018) – The mission to fit disabled and severely injured protectors with a mobility solution that fits their lifestyle and equip them for continued service to our Nation, continues. Wheelchairs for Warriors has identified their next deserving recipient.

Earlier this year they awarded an advanced wheelchair to Special Forces Green Beret Joseph “Joe” Lowrey of Ontario, California. He was shot through his helmet in Afghanistan in 2014 (during combat operations) from a high-powered rifle, which resulted in a traumatic brain injury and loss of the use of the left side of his body.

Wheelchairs for Warriors next mission turned to the Marines, thanks to Tejano Veterans of Houston, Texas.

We were introduced to Eric “Iron Fist” Morante, a United States Marine Combat Veteran who served 3 tours in Iraq and was injured along with 7 other Marines and a Navy Corpsman, when a suicide bomber detonated 3,000 pounds of explosive under a 15-foot section of bridge.

Sergeant Morante suffered a broken jaw and teeth, facial injuries, fractured wrist and his right leg was amputated, which has given him much discomfort given the limited options for movement of a very active Marine boxer who enters the ring as “Iron Fist” Morante. He currently gets by with a heavy and uncomfortable prosthetic leg and a pair of crutches.

An Interview with Eric Morante (USMC):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lH41aDqmxh0 (12 :06 min.)

Wheelchairs for Warriors hero will be recognized and honored in Las Vegas November 7, 2018 at a red-carpet Producer’s Choice Honors (www.ProducersChoiceHonors.com) event, which will feature many prominent music and entertainment stars, including board member Susan Giacona.

Wheelchairs for Warriors was founded to meet a unique need within the rescue and service community for those disabled in the line-of-duty, fighting for our country or rescuing people in harm’s way, to include Combat Veterans, EMS, Firefighters, and Peace Officers.

Wheelchairs for Warriors provides custom-fit, complex, rehab mobility solutions designed for the warrior’s specific needs: depending on their injuries and lifestyle. These wheelchairs can be operated by head, finger, foot, shoulder, puff of breath, eye movement, etc. The wheelchairs can elevate and recline providing comfort and access while also providing relief to pressure points. The adaptive machines are designed by Paul Morgan, their Complex Rehab Seating Specialist.

Wheelchairs for Warriors is currently seeking other wheelchair candidates across the nation.

Jim’ll Paint It – A♥P T-Shirt

Monday, September 24th, 2018

UK-based Jim’ll Paint It is a collaborative online storefront which consists of the works of an artist named Jim, and the “thousands of complete strangers who send him their weird and wonderful ideas.”, which are then turned into prints and printed on clothing items for sale. Unsurprisingly, many of these works happen to feature pop culture from various decades, including this A♥P t-shirt, which depicts one of the greatest hunters and one the greatest biologically engineered killing machines in the galaxy having fun at the beach, rather than trying to tear each other’s throats out, like usual.

I’m also partial to the “Dad’s Army of Darkness” print, because, we’ll, it’s inspired by ‘Army of Darkness’.

You can check out the rest of Jim’s products at jimll.co.uk.

Defense Distributed – Come And Take It 2.0 Patch

Sunday, August 26th, 2018

The patch is 2.5″ x 3″, hook and loop backed, and features a file icon above which is a black star, and below which are the words “Come And Take It”. For those who are unfamiliar, the design is based on the Gonzales Battle Flag featured at the Battle of Gonzales, the first battle in the Texas Revolution.

Nelson Precision Manufacturing – AR.5 Bottle Opener

Friday, August 24th, 2018

The AR.5 is a bottle opener designed to look like a miniature AR-15 lower receiver, manufactured by Arizona-based Nelson Precision Manufacturing. Machined from 6061 aluminum and Type III hard coated black anodized, the AR.5 Bottle Opener is detailed very much like an actual lower receiver, with the trigger guard pin extensions functioning as the bottle opening tool. Plus, if the product images are anything to go by, each bottle opener is individually serialized, which is pretty neat.

We Like Shooting – Meal Team 6 King Patch Set

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

Have you ever imagined various fast food mascots as elite operators in a special forces unit called Meal Team Six?

Yeah, me neither.

However, We Like Shooting has, and they’re releasing a limited weekly patch run of that very concept. This first set stars Burger King’s ‘The King’ as the flamethrower and molotov-wielding operative known by the codename King. This particular set consists of two patches and two stickers, the first design a depiction of the Operator ‘King’, and the second a design more reminiscent of The King’s normal appearance, molotov and spatula in hand.

Honestly, operator King looks to me like an amalgam of two of Kurt Russell’s greatest rolls: MacReady from The Thing (because of the flame thrower and hair), and Snake Pliskin from Escape from New York (because of the eyepatch and hair).

Anyway, you can pick up the set at the links below:

Violent Little Machine Shop – “Would You Like To Know More?” Morale Patch

Wednesday, July 25th, 2018

As a film, Starship Troopers is a terrible adaption of the Robert A. Heinlein novel of the same name, but stands on its own as an entertaining movie, and more importantly, for its oft-quoted and memed in-universe propaganda segments. Such is the inspiration for VLMS’ “Would You Like To Know More?” morale patch, which features the quoted phrase, along with the United Citizen Federation logo. Sized 2.5″ x 3.25″ inches, leather, and Hook Velcro backed.

30 Sec Out – Those Meddling Kids Patched

Wednesday, June 20th, 2018

Unless you’ve lived under a rock, you’ve heard of America’s former arch-nemesis Osama bin Laden. You’ve also likely heard of Mystery, Incorporated, the stars of ‘Scooby Doo’ who gained fame via a half-century of solving mysteries in their groovy mini-van.

When the team unmasked whatever evildoer was causing mayhem, said villain always exclaimed, “and I would have…”

30 Seconds Out commemorates one of the greatest operations in US military history, by reminding us of those meddling kids.

Home Depot Foundation Funds Free Admission for Active duty Military, Veterans, Reservists, Retirees and their Dependents May 25-28

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (May 17, 2018) – Colonial Williamsburg honors American military service Memorial Day weekend May 25-28 with free admission tickets for active duty military, reservists, retirees, veterans, National Guard members and their immediate dependents thanks to a $100,000 grant from The Home Depot Foundation.

Tickets issued through the Honoring Service to America program include admission to dozens of Historic Area sites including iconic attractions and trade shops plus historic gardens, interpretive programs and the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg. The program has distributed more than 28,000 tickets since 2014 and is part of The Home Depot Foundation’s philanthropic mission to improve the homes and lives of service members, veterans and their families.

“Colonial Williamsburg’s Honoring Service to America program aligns with The Home Depot Foundation’s commitment to improve the lives of military families,” said John E. Ellington, director of finance and grants administration for The Home Depot Foundation. “It is an honor to provide military families an opportunity to visit Colonial Williamsburg and immerse themselves in the history of a nation for which they sacrifice so much.”

“Colonial Williamsburg is extremely grateful to The Home Depot Foundation for its continued support of the Honoring Service to America program,” said Elisabeth Reiss, wife of Colonial Williamsburg President and CEO Mitchell B. Reiss, and leader of the Foundation’s military outreach efforts. “Colonial Williamsburg is honored to host military families this Memorial Day weekend—and every day of the year—as our nation reflects upon the heroic sacrifices military families have made throughout history and continue to make today.”

Service members need not be present for qualifying guests to receive free Honoring Service to America tickets, which are provided to dependent family members of currently deployed troops with appropriate identification. Veterans who separated before retirement can bring a copy of their honorable discharge paperwork, form DD 214, as identification of service. These weekend-long admission tickets are available at all onsite ticketing locations.

A Memorial Day commemorative service will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on May 28 to honor fallen service members. A procession with the Colonial Williamsburg Fifes and Drums and Military Programs staff will begin at the Governor’s Palace and proceed to Bruton Parish Church, ending at the Capitol. Remarks, placement of wreaths and ceremonial musket volleys honor soldiers of the American Revolution, the Civil War and other conflicts. This service is free and open to the public.

Military guests and their families are encouraged to stop by Colonial Williamsburg’s new military information desk at the Colonial Williamsburg Regional Visitor Center and the Liberty Lounge, a complimentary space for ticketed military guests to relax and recharge in the Historic Area. In addition to complimentary and discount admission for military families year-round Colonial Williamsburg is proud to offer military discounts on all Colonial Williamsburg hotels, dining, retail, golf and spa.

Knight’s Armament – SR-25 Magazine Flask

Monday, May 7th, 2018

I picked up one of Knight’s Armament’s SR-25 Magazine Flasks at their booth at the recent NRA Annual Meetings show. Modeled after the dimensions of the SR-25 magazine, this flask features a slick black finish, an included funnel, and ‘NRA 2018’ is marked on the bottom.

The best part? The fluid capacity is equal to 20 shots… *cough*
