Open Carry T-Shirt – I’m Both Appalled And Amazed

Setting the bar real high for derpy gun related t-shirts:


Open-Carry-Tshirt-2When I was sent a link to the site selling these I burst out into laughter.  First off, the design itself is absolutely retarded, and looks like complete garbage.  Secondly the website fittingly is at that exact same level.  Then I noticed they had a Facebook page and I thought “hahah I’m going to click that link and see 2 or 3 likes on a sad lonely page”…. NOPE… 5000+ likes and numerous customer pictures and positive comments from across the USA.  Wow… just wow.  Good for them I guess haha.

What a great way to agitate the public and waste the time of the police in some of the lesser gun friendly areas.

I almost wasn’t going to write this post because the thought popped into my mind that I might alienate potential ENDO Apparel customers.  Then I checked myself and realized that although both of our t-shirts are in the same price range, no one that likes my brand is going to be derpy enough to go anywhere such a terrible looking t-shirt as the one in this post.  I’ve seen better looking firearm related t-shirts at gas stations.

Thoughts?  Would buy? haha

Being a Californian, I would rather have my ENDO Apparel shirts with just messages/pictures versus appearing to carry a firearm. This just might end up getting someone shot out here.

In his Endo Cave, Mike sits and broods…..’Why didn’t I think of that design!?’


natas August 26, 2013 at 04:22 am

agreed…the insecurity in his hate of the design is obvious


Travis August 26, 2013 at 10:58 am

You guys beat me to it…
It’s okay Mike, I’m sure they won’t dig too deeply into any of your potential profits.


dave w August 26, 2013 at 05:53 pm

coming soon the endo double shoulder holster’d deagles t shirt.


dave w August 26, 2013 at 05:54 pm

dammit, should have read further down, mikes already printing these.


Turd Flugerson August 26, 2013 at 05:18 am

They sell. Good for them. Your criticism is not deserved and simply displays jealousy.


Rob.G August 26, 2013 at 07:30 am

This, +10.


ENDO-Mike August 26, 2013 at 03:18 pm

You got me, I’m so jelly. Double shoulder holster + double IWB printed Deagle brand Deagle t-shirt coming soon.


Kevin August 26, 2013 at 06:23 am

I’ve seen dumber shirts

Why did the libertarian chicken cross the road?


Robert August 26, 2013 at 08:02 am

I am like “meh”.

But I do like the fact that someone thought of an idea that would sell, put the time in, made the product (however derpy I may feel that it is) and marketed it to an “obviously wider-than-I-would-have-thought” crowd.

Capitalism in progress.


Mike August 26, 2013 at 08:17 am

At least they come in 3X so if I did want one, I could actually have one that fits.
Sure wish all clothing sites (cough,cough) would offer clothes in above average sizes.


ENDO-Mike August 26, 2013 at 03:31 pm

haha possibly someday. I’d have to get them custom made though because American Apparel doesn’t make past 2XL.


dave w August 26, 2013 at 05:55 pm

which is funny as americans dont coming in many sizes below 2xl if you believe the news


Mike August 26, 2013 at 06:38 pm

Hopefully soon, there are several designs I would be willing to pay extra for in a larger size. For what its worth its not becouse I’m overweight, just 6’5 and 285lbs, I can fit in a 2X but it causes me to print way too much.


dave w August 26, 2013 at 06:01 pm

And they ship internationally at a not too bad rate.


Matt in FL August 26, 2013 at 08:38 am

8/10, would operate with.


Travis August 26, 2013 at 11:03 am

“What a great way to agitate the public and waste the time of the police…”
Oh noes!!! The public ‘might’ become agitated!!! A few police ‘might’ be inconvenienced!!! The horrors!!!111!oneoneone!

Markedguardian probably liked it 4999 times.


Seb August 26, 2013 at 05:34 pm

I just wear a sholder holster with an actual firearm.


Seb August 26, 2013 at 05:34 pm



Ryan August 27, 2013 at 04:52 am

I think this is a classic case of “U mad, bro?”


Ed August 27, 2013 at 06:23 am

I’m with Mike on this one. The shirt sucks. It’s tacky and makes us look stupid. Just because something is popular doesn’t mean it’s good.


pointblank4445 August 27, 2013 at 08:01 am

So the guy who runs a blog where he shamelessly plugs his own novelty t-shirts at every turn and features any video of anybody wearing said t-shirt is ragging on other novelty t-shirts.


Nate August 27, 2013 at 08:13 am



ringo45 August 27, 2013 at 12:49 pm

Yep. Iisn’t it great to live in America?


ENDO-Mike August 27, 2013 at 02:02 pm

+1 … and I’m looking forward to seeing a pic of you in your new open carry t-shirt! I’ll even add it to this post.


pointblank4445 August 27, 2013 at 07:42 pm

The thought of pissing away $30 aside, I’m sure said pic would NEVER be the target of satire or trolling should it be put into your hands. If I wanted my mug on the internet, I would put it somewhere that it would be seen.


Cargosquid August 28, 2013 at 11:34 am

Personally, meh. I wouldn’t wear it.

But the thought of about thousands of college students wearing it to classes…… Priceless.


Chris Donawho September 6, 2013 at 08:46 am

Look, who’s derpy now? Waste of time for police in some of the less gun friendly areas? I believe the whole purpose of this shirt (I’m one of the 5000+, btw) is to rid ourselves of the “less gun friendly areas.”

Less Gun Friendly Area = Constitution Free Zone

I didn’t buy one, but the message is clear. You unwittingly pointed it out for us… Thank you.


ENDO-Mike September 6, 2013 at 08:55 am

*Yawn* Whether you like it or not, in 2013 that’s what’s still happening. Good troll attempt though.


Chris Donawho September 6, 2013 at 09:36 am

Commenting on a thread is a troll attempt?

Actually I was looking for one of those “Am I Being Detained” shirts, black with white lettering. The Google search landed me here. Go figure.


Lars Snegenfeden February 18, 2015 at 12:13 pm

I wish they had one with an UZI across the front. It would be great at Soccer games and shopping at Walmart.
