engraving

Making guns for the mass market is so lame.  Regular people are boring and buy boring stuff.  SIG doesn’t have time for that shit, hence:

Sig-Sauer-BarracudaSig-Sauer-Zeus

Sig-Sauer-King-Tut

Sig-Sauer-Alexander-The-Great

In order of the pics, you’re looking at: The Barracuda, The Zeus, The King Tut, and The Alexander The Great.

As a pimp or cartel member whats your first choice?  In theory I like the barracuda, but I feel that without those 4 sharp teeth people would just think you had a Northern pike on your gun.  That mistake would hardly would strike fear into the hearts of the hundreds of people you need to execute as a cartel member, or the people you have to pistol whip being a pimp.  I suppose my choice would be the King Tut, partially because I also like the badass sarcophagus it comes with.

Jesse Ingall teaches us how to stunt:

I can’t believe I never considered laser engraving as a way to step my holster game up.  I’ve always been big into tonal color combos.  That engraving appears to just matte the ABS’s regular shiny finish.

I wonder how many holster company biters are going to come out of the woodwork now and jack Jesse’s steez?  The apparatus gets blessed, and suckas get put to rest.

Thoughts?

A lot of 282 Vietnam war era Zippo lighters was recently auctioned off for $35,250:

The lighters tell a story of the war that cannot be found anywhere else.  They are a record soldiers’ feelings not meant for anyone but themselves, printed on a throwaway tool, capturing the spirit of the war in a way more authentic than any film, more personal than any history book, and more representative than any single soldier’s account.

If you follow my other blog MILcentric you’ll have seen this content already.  I won’t be sharing material often between them, except when there’s something exceptional I think both crowds will enjoy.

LOL at “Let me win your heart and mind or I’ll burn your God damn hut down”

Link to the auction and more pics at the post on MILcentric.

If you are into military inspired items (mostly clothing and accessories), and can stomach my relentless posts about camouflage then I urge you add MILcentric to your daily visits.

Mexican soldiers have seized an arsenal of gold-plated and diamond-encrusted weapons believed to belong to the Valencia gang, allies of the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel and, it seems, fans of hip-hip excess.

Showing just how flamboyant gang members spend much of their ill-gotten wealth, pictures show how most of the 31 ‘pimped’ pistols found in a raid on a home in western Mexico had gold or silver-plated grips or were glittered with diamonds.

Three of the assault rifles are almost entirely gold-plated and there was even a silencer plated with gold. One particularly image-conscious gangster has made his pistol unique by adding rows of gaudy red and green jewels and a Ferrari logo.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’d open carry that black 1911 with the diamond punisher grips with pride.

I’m honestly shocked that someone in the main stream media was able to write an article on Mexican drug cartel’s guns and not even mention the ubiquitous “gun show loophole”

The rifles aren’t really my style, although I still think they would be an awesome addition to any collection. Pretty neat how even the suppressor has engraving all over it.

Where does one even get such badass work done?  I imagine it would takes days worth of time, and be very expensive.  My guess is that these cartels have jewelers and gunsmiths on the payroll.

Seems like for a while there, every night on the news there were pictures of tables full of confiscated guns from Mexican drug gangs.  Most of the guns ( predictably often said to have been obtained from the US through the gun show “loophole”  or through crooked gun stores ) appeared to be in their factory form.

Every so often though you see guns like these:
