custom

An awesome custom creation by OTG Holsters:

Kydex-Bobba-Fett-Star-Wars-Holster

If you know Star Wars you should recognize that as Boba Fett’s helmet.  The holster was custom made for shooter and Star Wars nerd Nikki Raye‘s Glock.

As a proof of concept I like the idea a lot!  Nice to see company’s taking on fun custom jobs like this.

Thoughts?

Does the thought of empty picatinny rail space makes you sad?  DERP up your rifle!

A confidence boost knowing Buck Yeager approves whatever OP I’m currently engaged in:

Vigilant Spectre reminding me to “Stay Vigilant”, because sometime even the best of us forget:

You can pick from a lot of different snap-on options over at the Custom Gun Rails website for around $25.  *add witty internet nerd criticism about running the site on a subdomain and having nothing on the main domain, the fact they use a low end template and the navigation is shit, the company logo is some rookie lolz, and more general asshole-ish observations*

The above two examples are definitely what I’m going to write the company about sending me.

I’m really surprised Arm-Tape-Costa-Lupus hasn’t jumped on this bandwagon yet.  He could rep all sorts of operator brand logos during classes, getting paid just to show up.

One last thing, this line from the Custom Gun Rails website product pages kill me:

Our products have been deployed with Special Ops and conventional units all over the world and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.

Special Ops?  Guys, are you sure you didn’t mean Special Olympics?  I can’t see why special ops units would use something as frivilous as this.  Oh wait never mind… they probably have the BLACK OPS ones.

Thoughts?

The gun store guys are back to making fun of their customers:

The icing on the cake was the 1 ringed scope mount shimmed with toothpicks and woodchips.

I’ll admit I didn’t do the best job when I chopped the forend of my 870 down so it didn’t overlap the receiver.  That’s about the only sort of botched home gunsmithing job I’ve ever done… everything else has turned out great.

Got any of your own stories of botched jobs you can admit doing, or have seen done?

If this is your first time seeing the guys in the video, check out 20% Price Increase When Asking For A Glock Clip to see them make fun of their customers some more.

Want to change your comment icon (avatar) from the default grey/white glock?

“Poppy” asked about the custom comment icons the other day, then a bunch of you showed up with them.  I never though to make a post about it until now, because I thought people didn’t care to have a custom thumbnail … not because they didn’t know how to do it.  The icon will show up across ALL wordpress blogs you comment on, not just mine.  This even will happen on past comments you have made with the email address you register.

If you want a custom thumbnail:

  1. Go to Gravatar.com
  2. Click on the “Get your Gravatar today” link
  3. Enter the email address you use to comment on wordpress blogs
  4. Check your inbox for an email from Gravatar.com to verify your account
  5. Log in and upload the picture you want to use.  You can change this at any time.

Be creative, it’s your personal branding.  Show yours off and leave a comment below.

“The Cake Is A Lie” pays homage to the video game Portal: 

The grips are gun are owned by Calguns member mossy.  He had them custom made for $175 from HandmadeGrips.

If I owned anything with removable grips you know i’d have to pick up a set of gold inlay “Haters Gonna Hate” grips to wear when I strut around open carrying.  Possibly even some white grips with a gold troll face on them.. yea that would be tight. :P  JMB is rolling in his grave.

If you’re into that kind of thing, it looks like a good value for $175 considering all the hand fitting and finishing that appears to go into each set of grips.  I see there are also grips above $400, so I imagine the more customization you want done, the higher the price.

What would you hypothetically put on your custom grips?

Referred to as the “Secret Weapon” by designer/Hollywood stuntman Eddie Paul.

The project included fabricating all the body parts from metal, building the rotating replica Gatling guns which are twin 7.62mm electrically-driven rotary-action six-barrel mini-guns (similar to those on Puff the Magic Dragon gunship in ’Nam, or as seen in Schwarzenegger’s film “Predator”), converting the fuel supply to the pair of five-gallon Jerry cans attached to the rear and constructing the bullet-proof Lexan windshield.

Full story – HERE

Now that’s badass! No word yet on whether or not it can fly.
