Introducing Violent Little Greeting Cards

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

Somewhere in the mountains of Ketchum, Idaho, Violent Little Machine Shop is kind of pleased to announce their new business line: Violent Little Greeting Cards, which will be geared towards the military, tactical, and general scallywag communities. Finally, there are cards for the relationships you always wanted but could just never muster up the courage to develop on your own. We’ll help you get there…

The initial line consists of 13 painstakingly-designed cards to suit a variety of scenarios. All are printed in the United States of America on tastefully thick 14 pt. premium paper that just wants to caress the ink into a masterpiece of bullshit. Newly dubbed CEO, Oscar Sanchez, was excited about the new line: “I’m really not too sure about this new card thing. Honestly, it’s been kind of tough to get on board with the “vision”, but I’ve also got a boss… so it’s not like I’ve got a choice in the matter. I’ll push what he tells me to push.” He added, “I guess my head’s on the chopping block… I feel like I’m kind of in a “no win” situation, but oh well. I’ll start polishing up my resume. Anybody know if Black Rifle Coffee is hiring? I hear Stratton Oakmont has some good benefits.”

Violent Little Greeting Cards are the perfect way to tell your best friend to “fuck off”, make Mom feel kind of special on her special day, or just as a general “hello” to that fake friend you haven’t talked to since High School graduation that wrote “Seniors are the Best” in your yearbook and then you bumped into him at the Chik-fil-A he was assistant-managing and you felt guilty because you’re now a big time boss-hawg.

To order, go to violentlittle.com. Notes of “well wishes” can be sent to info@violentlittle.com.

Gun Websites – Old West Guns – Playing Card Deck

Friday, May 26th, 2017

Old West Gun Playing Cards

Gun Websites has started a Kickstarter campaign for a deck of Old West Guns playing cards. Like the previous AK Playing Card Deck, the deck will feature various weapons from the ‘Old West’ era – period rifles, shotguns, revolvers, etc. Each card features a full color image, along with dates of production and additional info, such as the inventor, weapon’s nickname, barrel length, a life-size image of the ammunition the weapon was chambered for, and more. The classification of weapons will be separated via suits, which of course means these cards can also be used as a standard playing deck.

NRAAM 2017 – BAR Floor Lamp

Monday, May 1st, 2017

This post was originally published on Soldier Systems Daily.


If you are looking for the ultimate accessory for your man cave or office, this BAR Floor Lamp I spotted in the Ohio Ordnance booth is just what you need.


These limited edition lamps are just five of a run of 10 and each one is serialized “x of 10.” They are really cool. The Trigger actually functions as the on/off switch and includes working sights/safety/mag release/bipod. The Barrels are 1944 dated and the base is fashioned into the Ohio Ordnance logo. Finally, this piece of art is signature engraved.


Brace yourself. The cost is $6500, but they are manufactured from actual BAR parts and not plastic lookalikes.

If you are interested, email RLandies@oowinc.com.

KDG Mr. Murphy Patch: Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day With Everyone’s Most Hated Irishman!

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

IMG_0456

Mission plans are like Bar Crawls; everything was going great until Murphy showed up…

We all have met Mr. Murphy, and we have yet to meet anyone that likes the guy. He’s been giving the Irish a bad name since before Saint Pat murdered all those snakes with his trusty Shillelagh!

Any military man or woman can tell you all about Mr. Murphy; well known for his universal law. Murphy likes to make frequent appearances right before uniform inspections, after you have bought nonrefundable plane tickets for your upcoming leave request, and even worse, during combat operations. According to old military superstitions, if you get three or more officers together to talk, he will appear in mere moments.

We here at KDG aren’t going to sugar coat it, we flat out hate Mr. Murphy. We asked our resident red-bearded Irishman Daniel O’Brien his thoughts on the matter, and he said, “If it wasn’t for Murphy and whiskey, Ireland would be a World superpower!” Collectively, KDG harbors an overwhelming, unrepentant amount of hatred for Mr. Murphy, and strive to avoid him at all cost. In the spirit of the holiday, we would like to offer our “NO MR. MURPHY!” morale patches for $5.00 with free shipping. For all orders over $30.00 placed on our website, you will receive a free Mr. Murphy patch with your order. The offer runs now through Sunday March 19. The patches are Velcro backed for attaching to plate carriers and hats, and are constructed out of high quality PVC material. PVC is a good choice for the spirit of Murphy’s Law, since it’s stain proof construction allows for green-tinted vomit to be easily washed off!

Here’s the real origin of Murphy’s Law.

Murphy’s Law (“If anything can go wrong, it will”) was born at Edwards Air Force Base in 1949, and was named after Capt. Edward A. Murphy. Captain Murphy worked as an engineer on Air Force Project MX981, which was designed to see how much sudden deceleration a person can stand in an aircraft crash.

One day, after finding that a transducer was wired wrong, he cursed the technician responsible and said, “If there is any way to do it wrong, he’ll find it.” The contractor’s project manager kept a list of “laws” and added this one, which he called Murphy’s Law.

Shortly afterwards, the Air Force doctor (Dr. John Paul Stapp) who rode a sled on the deceleration track to a stop, pulling 40 Gs, gave a press conference. He said that their good safety record on the project was due to a firm belief in Murphy’s Law and in the necessity to try and circumvent it.

Aerospace manufacturers picked it up and used it widely in their ads during the next few months, and soon it was being quoted in many news and magazine articles. Murphy’s Law was born.

Someone Trademarked The Term “Morale Patch”- Help Stop Them

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

Yesterday, Morale Patch Armory announced they had received a trademark for the term “Morale Patch” and immediately set about having morale patch collector groups shut down on social media. Obviously, the term existed long before these guys came along. I’m all for respecting IP, but if you didn’t create it, you shouldn’t claim it.

Consequently, some folks have banded together to appeal the trademark issue to the USPTO. Naturally, this will take lawyers, and lawyers take cash. They’ve started a gofundme page and raised over $8000 in the first hour. Consider, throwing a few bucks in, in order to stand up to this outrageous act, designed to curtail innovation and trade.

Pennsylvania-Native Creates Artwork from Spent Ammunition, Surpasses 1000 Sales on Etsy

Friday, January 6th, 2017

Ready Aim Craft features flags, signs, wedding décor and jewelry, all made from 12 gauge shotgun shells; turns hobby into growing business

FAWN GROVE, Pa., Jan. 5, 2017 – Launched on Etsy in August 2013, Ready Aim Craft has surpassed the 1000-sale mark, while maintaining a 5-star average rating. Since it’s inception, the small shop has grown from a few small items made from spent ammo, like key chains and earrings, to over 100 items including an American flag made from over 360 12-gauge shotgun shells.

263145

“I’ve been crafting as a hobby for years now, and I wanted to start creating items for others to enjoy as well,” says Janelle James, founder of Ready Aim Craft. “I love being able to sort through a box of spent shotgun shells, that most people throw away, and turn them into unique pieces of art.”

“Most customers are shopping Ready Aim Craft because they’re searching for something special,” she continues. “I’ve created American Flags for husbands and brothers coming home from Afghanistan, as well as Thin Blue Line flags for family members graduating from the Police Academy. I’m humbled each and every time someone chooses one of my items to give as a gift, for occasions far more celebratory than the standard birthday or holiday.”

Ready Aim Craft’s iconic piece of art, the Shotgun Shell American Flag, was recently added to the museum/art collection at Lock & Load Miami, a premier machine gun shooting range in downtown Miami. “[It] looks fantastic and a lot of our customers have already given us positive feedback,” says Andy Serafine of Lock & Load Miami.

Future plans for the shop include participation in a variety of C&E Gun Shows through the Pennsylvania area and Catoction Colorfest later this year.

About Ready Aim Craft

Ready Aim Craft is a craft shop comprised of various items celebrating American pride and patriotism. Janelle James opened the shop in 2013, and everything is created and made by her and her husband, who serves in the Air Force.

Tactical Outfitters – Dickbutt Air Freshener 

Saturday, August 27th, 2016

  

If you’re not familiar with Dickbutt, it’s an internet meme; ’nuff said about that (Google it if you’re interested). Given the name, and the potential smells associated with said name, any wariness about the odor of an air freshner such as this one is fully understood, but it smells fine, honest! Just a generic, ‘fresh’-smelling air freshner… that looks like Dickbutt.
