Palmetto State Armory – “Approval-15” Stripped AR Lower Receiver

Thursday, April 18th, 2019

PSA has released many ‘meme’ lowers, and has more in the pipeline, but the “Approval-15” is arguably the greatest so far. It features the (in)famous ATF Guy (Peter Parker from the 1967 Spider-Man cartoon with an ATF ballcap photoshopped onto his head) prominently on the magwell and the selector switch markings ‘no & no’ (safe), ‘maybe, but no’ (semi), and ‘yes, but really no’ (full-auto). Like all PSA lowers, the “Approval-15” is built to MilSpec standard, made of forged 7075-T6 aluminum with a MIL-A-8625, Type III, Class 2 black anodized finish.

It’s also reportedly only being offered once, so if you want to get one for yourself, now’s the time.

DPX GEAR ADDS THE KABUL COUNTRY CLUB LINE OF APPAREL TO THE WEBSITE

Monday, March 18th, 2019

San Diego, CA – March, 18, 2019 – DPx Gear has released the classic Kabul Country ClubTM logo apparel. This is second in a series of classic designs to be featured that represent the hostile environments that inspire and test DPx Gear products.

Like the Mogadishu Yacht Club line before it, t-shirts will be available in multiple sizes, styles and colors ranging from XS to XXL and start at $33.50. Sleeveless, long sleeved and short sleeved variations in addition to hooded sweatshirts are made in the USA by American Apparel and sweat shop free.

The Kabul Country Club logo and concept was designed by Robert Young Pelton for DPx Gear. It is inspired by the actual Intercontinental Hotel and the Kabul Golf Club in Qargha, Afghanistan. Pelton has stayed there multiple times and has been a visitor since 1996.

The logo pays homage to the classic 60’s tourist destination, once advertised as “the Switzerland of Asia” and commemorates the Afghans that have been in Kabul through decades of war.

“Kabul still has remnants of the grand old days and I created a logo to honor and remember those tough-as-nails Afghans,” says Pelton of the logo.

The golf course and hotel have seen many regime changes since its opening in the late sixties. Mohammad Afzel “Abdul”, who was arrested twice for the crime of golf, has been the manager and golf pro at the course since the late 70’s and embodies the “tough-as-nails” Afghan persona.

The hotel made news recently when it was attacked in 2018. Pelton’s favorite room on the third floor of the hotel was blown up.

They may be disheveled versions of their once glorious selves, but the mystique of the hotel and golf course live on through the logo.

More items such as mugs, hats, and a restocking of patches and shot glasses will be added to the product line up as it is expanded.

Two veterans launch GunLamps on Kickstarter | Badass lamps for badass people

Monday, March 4th, 2019

Los Angeles, March 2019 – GunLamps has launched on Kickstarter with a modest $10,000 funding goal. GunLamps was co-founded by a US Marine Corps veteran and a British Army veteran, who met in California in 2012, became best friends, and business partners. What started as a simple gift idea, from one gun-lover to another, has developed into an exciting business endeavor with uncapped potential. We’re launching this Kickstarter campaign to fund initial production and jump-start the business Sebastian Calvo, one of the co-founders said.

Sebastian “Seabass” Calvo served 7 years in the US Marine Corps as a Combat Engineer Officer, deploying to both Afghanistan and Iraq. He left the military in 2018 to pursue his Masters in Business Administration from New York University’s Stern School of Business.

Geraint “Gez” Jones served 12 years as an infantryman in the British Army. He is a combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan. Gez has written several of his own books and has co-authored with James Patterson. He is a New York and Sunday Times best selling author.

Our goal:
We’re aiming to reach a goal of $10,000 Geraint Jones said and we’re also looking for a $25,000 investment for 10% of the business. Since our founding, we have screened multiple manufacturing facilities and tested countless prototypes, and we have arrived at a quality we feel is worthy of stamp of approval as military veterans. We are now ready to start stocking inventory and fulfilling orders, and monetary support through investors or on our Kickstarter will help get that started.

Our mission:

To design and manufacture stylish, high-quality, and affordable products for gun-lovers across the country, helping them effortlessly decorate their homes, offices, or man caves (preferably all three).

Our products:

Choose between our unique .44 Magnum or 1911 paper towel dispensers, and our exclusive GunLamps product line, such as the M4 or RPG. We have several color finishes to choose from including a black ops collection, and all of our products come with free shipping anywhere in the continental US.

Kitfox Design Group Launches Firearm Cookie Cutters

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.

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.
