Noted Kalashnikov enthusiast Gun Websites is currently running an Indiegogo campaign for something a bit more abstract than your usual crowdfunding project, but no less worth paying attention to: a Kalashnikov Buyers Guide. This guide will be a web-based “ulitmate resource for all things Kalashnikov.” It will function as a singluar place to compile an archive of information on Kalashnikov rifles and their variants, as well as encourage more Kalashnikov collectors, builders, and shooters. You can check out the campaign at the link below:

Hardcore: the first ever full-length action movie filmed from a first person perspective.
Ammo-Boss’ Gunner’s Mate 12 Gauge Shotgun Shell dispenser is a ambidextrous retention device designed to hold up to eight 12 gauge shotshells. A forward sloping top allows easy access to the thumb sweep area, which is enlarged for gloved operation. An integrated belt clip is sized for heavy belts, or attachment to PALS webbing. Currently up for funding on Indiegogo.
Orcish Operator is a project currently up on Indiegogo to produce 24×36 inch fantasy-inspired targets for firearms and archery. Each target even comes with its own ‘minigame’, and if anything else the art’s high quality, so they’d make good posters as well. Here’s to getting them to their final stretch goal – Eldrich targets – Cthulhu’s all the rage, after all.
Veteran-owned business Bullets2Bandages currently has a crowdfunding campaign running on Indiegogo. They’re looking for funding to expand their product line with the Six Shooter Shot Glass. The completed glasses will come in two anodized colors: black and sliver. They’re designed as a replica of the cylinder from a Colt Revolver.
The glasses are machined from aircraft-grade aluminum, and comply with U.S. 21 CFR F.D.A. Reg Part 175.300 clause C1/C2/C3/C4, meaning according to the Government they’re safe to drink from. Additionally, they can be custom laser-engraved, for an extra touch of personalization.
Bullets2Bandages is a Veteran-owned small business located in San Diego, CA, founded in 2011 by two former Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal divers. They produce accessories and apparel that aim to honor those who have served the USA. B2B hires veterans, manufactures locally, and donates 15% of profits to veteran charities.
The TIHK, or Tiny Inconspicuous Handcuff Key, is exactly what the name implies, a small handcuff key designed to be hidden on one’s person. The TIHK features an attachment clip, minimal form factor, and a non-reflective matte coating to insure it remains undetected when detained. The key is designed to fit all standard “peerless” single and double-lock handcuffs. While concealable handcuff keys/unlock tools are nothing new, unlike other examples, this particular product is currently up for crowdfunding to fund the manufacturing process.
Paper Blasters are a project currently on Indiegogo for high-quality, durable cardboard models of AR-15s that fire prepared paper wads up to 75ft via a spring-loaded action. The basic kit includes: skeleton with all internal mechanics, layer one camo skin, layer two camo skin, 8 gold shells with 50 pieces of pre-made ammo, mold to make additional ammo, and a zombie head target. The camos shown are Digital Ops, Golden Touch, and Zombie Slayer.
The Tactical Helmet Rank on Indiegogo is a project for a device designed to snap into the NVD bracket of the Army Combat Helmet. At the moment, only the CPT and E-7 insignia have been produced; further funding will lead to the entirety of Army ranks being produced, with insignia for ranks in the other branches following at a later time.
The TechJect Robot Dragonfly is a micro UAV designed to mimic an insect; the project started due to a grant from the U.S. Air Force for research into biologically-inspired spy drones. Four models will be available, with the highest model featuring a re-configurable processor, hovering and gilding capabilities, accelerometers, gyroscopes, remote control, GPS, an advanced sensor pack with 18 individual environmental sensors, two cameras, and wi-fi compatibility.
The TaskOne is a project on Indiegogo for a case that turns your iPhone into a multitool. The TaskOne weighs only 89 grams and utilizes hardened tool steels, aircraft aluminum, and polycarbonate in its construction. The entirety of the included tools can be seen in the image above. If funding is completed, it’ll be released in the following colors: Slate Grey, Cherry Red, Jet Black, and (Indiegogo-$150 contributor exclusive) Orange Flame.
The ADAPPT XT, a multi-function iPhone 4 utility case, is an impressive-looking project currently open for funding on Indiegogo. The poly-carbonate case protects the phone from drops, nicks, and scratches and houses both a 1.5″ utility blade and a multi-tool card. The card currently functions as a 10 piece wrench set, flat head screwdriver, ruler, and bottle opener. If the project gets off the ground, both the multi-tool card and knife slot will have options of customization such as a mirror or magnifying glass, and scissors or a USB drive. Additionally, there are plans to release a case for the recently announced iPhone 5.
kickstarter Indiegogo project. This time for a toy shotgun that shoots ordinary table salt for the removal of unwanted house flies and other annoying critters.
Indiegogo is a site much like Kickstarter, where individuals can use cloud/social funding to raise capital for various projects. It also happens to be the platform that Matt Arrell of Home Combat Magazine is using to try and fund his project: converting old military duffel bags into EDC bags. The initial donation will be used to create prototypes for the bags, which will include a hydration bladder pocket and pockets on each of the shoulder straps for holding your cell phone and credentials. If these prototypes prove successful, the plan is to try and move production to a veteran’s homeless shelter in Arizona, which will provide the veterans with jobs and assistance. The project only requires $550 out of a $750 goal with 26 days left at the time of writing. You can find out more information at the project page on Indiegogo.
