Sacred Bones Records – Halloween “Target Practice” Poster

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

In the article when I first brought up Chris Bilheimer’s ‘Target Practice’ art made for the Halloween 2018 soundtrack, and subsequently available on a t-shirt and enamel pin, I mentioned how it was unfortunate that it wasn’t available as an actual target. Well, it’s not quite there yet, however it is now available as an oversized, 23″x34″ stand-alone poster. At $15/ea, this isn’t one you’d buy just to shoot at the range, but it’d still be a cool wall piece.

Rebel Distillers – DOOM Bone Vodka

Saturday, September 7th, 2019

In celebration of the upcoming DOOM: Eternal, Bethesda Softworks has partnered with Europe-based Rebel Distillers to produce a licensed DOOM Bone Vodka. What makes it bone vodka, you may ask? Well, it’s a wheat-based vodka, which is further flavored with the addition of bone marrow. The marrow is extracted from roasted and smoked beef bones, which are sourced from UK-based The Ginger Pig, a butcher known for sourcing high welfare meat. Throw in the bottle, which is produced in France, and the labels which are produced in England, and you have a truly European spirit.

One that, unfortunately, is only seeing release in the UK, EU, and Australia. After the failure that was Nuka Dark Rum, it would be nice to see this one come stateside.

Anyway, for those of you who are in the intended market for this release, it’s £45 for a 700ml bottle, and can be ordered at the link below:

Mondo Tees – Metal Gear Solid Enamel Pins

Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

Metal Gear Solid, everyone’s favorite Tactical Espionage Action series, is getting representation in the form of enamel pins, thanks to Mondo Tees. Available at Noon CT today, the set consists of cyborg ninja Grey Fox, legendary infiltrator Solid Snake, and the fourth wall breaking psychic Psycho Mantis, as well as a fourth two-piece set which consist of a Guard with the iconic “!” alert; the later is easily my favorite of the set.

This is a Mondo release, so it’s bound to go quick. The 2xLP of the MGS soundtrack is also due to go up at the same time, if you’re into collecting vinyl.

Dumbgood – NERF Collection

Saturday, August 3rd, 2019

Dumbgood, a company that produces limited run collections of clothing and accessories based on pop culture and appealing to nostalgia, has released a NERF collection. The collection mainly consists of various shirts, although a few other items, such as a crossbody bag and ballcap, can be found. It’s kind of weird they’re doing an appeal to 90’s era NERF when they’re using the modern logo, but it is officially licensed, so that might be part of Hasbro’s requirements for the line.

You can check out the entire line at dumbgood.com

Happy 90th Birthday To Gaston Glock!

Friday, July 19th, 2019

Here’s to Gaston Glock, who turned 90 today! Principle creator of debatably the greatest combat pistol line ever made, the Glock series polymer framed pistols, in use with the military and police forces of at least 48 countries, with over 5 million models manufactured since the early 80s. And while not the first production polymer-framed handgun to reach the public market (That would be H&K’s VP70), it’s the popularity and reputation of the Glock pistol that we can all thank/blame for the huge number of polymer-framed, striker-fired handguns currently on the market.

Built to the same MilSpec standard as PSA’s other lowers, the “Alien-15” will feature a rollmark with the typical depiction of the ‘Grey’ extraterrestrial, complete with raygun in hand. The selector switch will be marked: ‘NO ENTRY’ – Safe, ‘STORM 51’ – Fire, and ‘RETREAT’ – Full Auto. PSA is taking orders through July 21, and will start shipping 4-6 weeks after that. They also claim this is the only time they’re offering the “Alien-51”, so if you’re interested, jump on it while you have the chance.

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.
