Weapon Outfitters

Time to make the doughnuts

Posted on January 19, 2015 by Lando.

2/3 of the Weapon Outfitters team is down at SHOT show for the week.  But someone has to keep this show on the road.  So I volunteer as tribute.

If you want to follow the shenanigans, check out the WO Instagram and the Military Times:  Gear Scout blog.  Roy is writing for those dudes at SHOT and will probably get some dibs on really cool stuff that's coming out.

Meanwhile, I've got orders to pack for our loyal customers.  And while I'm at it I need to find that Knob Creek whiskey we had laying around here somewhere...

Order a Weapon Outfitters Custom Poster

Posted on January 7, 2015 by Lando.

In the past, we might of sat on a really cool image of Ethereal Rose and as funds allowed perhaps purchased a bunch of posters for sale.  Sometimes they sold and sometimes we'd end up adding them to orders for free during special promotions.

Then we got to thinking, there must be a better way.  Thanks to the power of The Internet, we've partnered with a printing company who will drop ship the prints for us.

Flat Rate Shipping Policy Revision

Posted on December 30, 2014 by Lando.

To our loyal customers and fans,

It is not lightly that we've arrived at this conclusion, but with regret I must inform you all that we've had to eliminate our Free Shipping on orders over $200.  Except for special sales and promotions, going forward all standard shipping will be $7.95 unless you opt for Fed-Ex/UPS.

As an online business one our biggest expenses is shipping.  If you want the truth of the matter, we make about a buck on shipping out small orders.  The flip-side to that truth is that anytime we insure shipping (which we do on all orders over $200) we stand to spend from $11-40 for shipping that item one-way.  Amazon we are most definitely not; and if we want to move forward (more products, better inventory management software) we can't afford to keep absorbing those costs.

Notes from the gunsmith table: Buffer Weights

Posted on December 22, 2014 by Lando.

In trying to organize and collate our website's catalog; we put together a table of AR15 buffer weights.  I believe that some day, some where -- this information will help that enthusiast build and tune the ultimate blaster for their needs.  This is the internet after all.  As I find more buffers to add, even if they aren't in WO inventory, I'll update the list:

#WeaponOutfitness #maceworkoout  #gada #Past&FutureWeapons

Where once there was one, now stand three.   Will, Roy and I hope to relaunch this blog with more content, more gear info, more photo excursions, more gunnish-ness.  We'll pander our musings, share knowledge and of course share some photos of guns. Let's try this, we're going to call it "This Is My Rifle."  Comprised of a synopsis of what the initial goal of the rifle build, with a current parts configuration, what works and what I wish I had done different.  If you got a cool rifle project you completed, send us some pics and follow a similar format as seen below and we'll post it here for more gunp7on.

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

Posted on May 11, 2014 by Roy L..

Pinup Bethypls, Pinup with an AR15

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.

Outfit yer weapon, outfit yer face...

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.
