Bethy wanted to do a Pinup themed shoot, so we did a pinup themed shoot!

Bethy is a lovely lady that was introduced to us by one of our employees, Will.

She is a naturally good shot,  and also, a good natured lady we really like working with.  The other day we were talking, and she decided she would like to shoot Pinup style photos, and I hesistated.  While i've been a huge fan of Gil Elvgren for a long time, Pinup art has never been my specialty.

Still, how can a man turn down the chance to create something beautiful with a pretty girl and guns?

Overall, i'm pretty pleased with the results and hope to do more pinup style shots in the future!

Training Day with Ethereal Rose

Posted on April 25, 2014 by Roy L..

Good times with Ethereal Rose running my brand new Hodge Defense AU Mod 1 rifle.

We did this video mostly as a proof of concept for our video capabilities... already have the camera and mic, might as well try something!  We did this as a two-fer project... one, to brush up Rose's skills, and two, to prove we could make a video that would be entertaining to watch

The primary goal of that afternoon however, was still training. As ALWAYS with training, we strive for extreme accuracy.  People seem to use "balance of speed and accuracy" as an excuse to just hose away on the range... after all, from the perspective of a bystander, the Grand Master and tacticool douchebag burning rounds look the same (until you look at the targets).  Is the goal of training to look cool?  It isn't for me, and so for this video we decided to keep Rose held to a high standard.

I subscribe to the belief that when you're dry, well rested, well fed, and happy on a well lit square range, you have better be capable of hitting the A-Zone, all the time.  It's something I've picked up from the various former Delta Force guys i've trained with (the ones who are public about it being: Larry Vickers, Pat Macnamara, Sheriff of Baghdad) That's why Rose is fairly conservative in her pace of fire:  only hits matter.  I'm sure that some internet commandos will fault her for not keeping both eyes open during firing, but it's a natural tendency when you're going for accuracy and I don't find fault with it.

To be honest, would have made for better footage if she was just hosing away and pretending to be a Grand Master level shooter... but "homie don't play that" so to speak.

Colt Wheelguns in Media

Posted on April 12, 2014 by Roy L..

Susan Coffey with a Colt Python Susan Coffey with a Colt Python

Susan Coffey as one of my favorite fictional characters from the 80s.

She's toting around a pal's rare, like new condition Colt Python (probably a lot more handy than a Crossbow in most scenarios).  For these poses, I imagined her as a perturbed woman on edge, and remembered the way ex girlfriends looked at me when i've wrong them.  The pistol isn't pointed at the viewer... but it's right there, seemingly hanging loosely from her relaxed wrist and firm grip.

One thing with the Colt Python/Anaconda in media is that no one ever seems to hold them straight, especially Rick in "Walking Dead". It's always held at an angle as if the power of the cartridge adds mass and weight of steel is heavier in cumbersome (and intimidating) revolvers than in semi-automatics.  Colt wheelguns are characters in their own right... and afforded some gravitas that a modern semi-automatic pistol would never get in the limelight.

For most, weapons are talismans and symbols more than they are tools... more as something to flash to show off and intimidate than anything.  I can get that.  But truth is, any person who gets into a moving gunfight against a hostile at least roughly familiar with modern gunfighting styles be it from legit sources or movies/media with a revolver is likely to be outgunned with fire firing, fast reloading, accurate, and highly reliable semi-automatic pistols found on the market today.

That being said, there is something about a big honking wheel gun that makes everyone go "oooh" and "ahhhh" when it's show and tell time.  As a symbol, the Colt Python and Anaconda are unmatched in terms of beauty and intimidation, but when it comes to defensive, competitive, or professional use, the utility and value of a modern semi-automatic pistol is hard to beat.

Makeup Outfitters
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Seattle, WA - April 1, 2014 - Washington state based weapons accessories business "Weapon Outfitters", identified with its distinctive WO logo, is turning that W upside down, and abandoning the business of outfitting modern firearms in lieu of the FABULOUS makeup and women's accessories business.

Tired of beards, dip, and night vision photography, the company formerly known as Weapon Outfitters released a statement earlier today from warehouse stacked with high end weapons accessories and demo weapons that once made an Army medic exclaim:  "What the fuck is this Navy SEAL shit?!"

"Due to the price of ammo, and the geometric rise in man drama between gun nerds on the internet, we've decided to just ditch the whole "guns" in "girls and guns" thing and just sell makeup to chicks" said Roy Lindenbergh, president and CEO of Weapon Outfitters.  "The margins are higher, and the clients are a 17 times more likely to be female, and that's kind of relevant to my interests."

Weapon Outfitters later announced a discount code "MakeupOutfitters" would be activated to offer 10% off all in stock, in stock items to help shift their company's focus from Weapons to Makeup.

Fallout Tribute

Posted on March 28, 2014 by Roy L..

Ethereal Rose spent the better part of the day in a dark, dank, creepy Titan 1 Missile nuclear silo with only the precious electricity piped in from a mobile generator outside allowing us to in the deep dark artificial cavern.

Stepping out into the sunlight just in time for the sunset in early winter was truly a treat for us.  That "look" on her face is for real, hahaha

Being a huge Fallout 3 fan, I was tickled by the new additions that Bethesda added to Fallout: New Vegas in regards to firearms and reloading.  There must be some gun nerds at that game company, but the addition of more semi realistic weapons and reloading as a gameplay mechanic was pretty refreshing.

New York Reload, AR-15 Style

Posted on March 26, 2014 by Roy L..

People frequently get caught up with the"stuff" in their hobbies... doesn't matter if your hobby is cars, computers, photography, painting, ice climbing, hiking... we can't help but have a little bit of attachment to the tools that help us exert our will as the subjects of our own lives.  We all know "that guy" who has a ridiculously expensive and customized (noun) but can't seem to (verb) for shit with it... whereas some other bloke with a much cheaper (noun) is amazing at (verb)ing with his affordable (noun).

In firearms this definitely seems to be fairly true for a lot of folks, especially folks who've just got into shooting, or those who've been collectors for a long, long time.  While I certainly take pride in ownership for certain firearms in my collection, most of the time... a gun's a gun's a gun.  It's just a tool and a means to an end, and the most important component of any tool is its wielder.

To illustrate this concept that I believe it so firmly, I actually used a very, very special rifle with this shot with Ethereal Rose... a friend's Colt SP-1 so old the serial number doesn't even have "SP" on it.  For all your old school gin-u-wine gun nerds... you'll notice something on the charging handle...  Brownie points who can tell me what it is!  Aside from a little customization, this rifle is in extremely good condition and I was glad to handle such a beautiful specimen... but all the while imagined it as just a utilitarian tool instead of a awesome collector's item.

Basic concept of this series was that of a lucky scavenger, with both a top of the line modern rifle, with an old school, lightweight, A1 style rifle as a quick backup: hope you like it!

Any guesses as to which character inspired us for a shoot with Susan this past weekend?

We did a separate project with our friends at Combat Flip Flops, so be sure to follow them as well!  They'll be releasing the first batch of badass, awesome photos featuring fellow Ranger from 2/75!

New Banner Ad for Spring, 2014 featuring Susan Coffey

Posted on March 25, 2014 by Roy L..

I'm ADHD and overworked... so completely forgot to do a winter banner photo for the website ACK!  I had the perfect image too, that of Ethereal Rose which I used for my banner photo on Facebook

WO_L0380---960---png

No fear, got a spring themed one up featuring Susan Coffey.

2014 Spring Front Page

Funny thing about this photo is that we got kitted out at the last minute by the fine folks at Arc'Teryx LEAF and Combat Flip Flops with really, really hard to find stuff like female size Alpha jackets, and limited edition Atom jackets in Multicam (not even available for sale), and a scarf made in Afghanistan.

Susan is holding my perennial favorite personal upper build: a lightweight, accurate, and durable Centurion Arms build.  Centurion Arms barrel and Modular Rail system, along with a Fortis Manufacturing Aimpoint mount.

Spring Time

Spring.

It's been a long, brutal winter, and while some of us have gotten used to how much it sucks to be be cold all the time, it seems we've finally come to that magical time of the year where the possibilities of the long days of spring and summer are laid out bare in front of us.

I look forward to enjoying the great outdoors of this magnificent country, and enjoying the hard won freedoms afforded to me and my fellow citizens.  I'm getting my ammunition loading books out and adding kit to some builds I started over the winter... a sling here, a bipod there...

To help facilitate this, my employees and I did a quick and dirty moving inventory of our wares over 2 days, and we're now offering a spring cleaning discount code of 10% off all in stock items.  Just use "springcleaning14" during checkout to knock 10% off your order on all items (except for those from certain manufacturers who I am contractually unable to offer sales on), good until the 28th, and code cannot be combined with other discount codes.
