Intruders? Give them something to bleed about!

Anything that gets merely scared off will keep preying on innocent people. Buckshot adjusts attitudes more reliably.

Less fear. More preparation.

A shotgun might be more appropriate, but a pistol with a laser can be quicker to grab from the nightstand.

Titanium

Russian body armor uses titanium plates. Do any US makers use it?

Calling web designers

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

Recently, I had to search for info on a corporate web site and couldn’t find much there. It was very extensive yet utterly unusable. I may end up suggesting a re-design, but would need to know who can do a better job. Please feel free to post links to your portfolios.

Leather for Valentines’ Day?

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

Having written about Dragon Leatherworks often, I’d like to recommend as as a source of gifts for you mate. Since they make custom designs and can decorate or personalize the holsters just the way you want, it could make for a very unique and memorable gift. The only catch is: making and shipping one of a kind design takes time, so you’d want to have your order in this week. If time gets too short for the order, or you are not sure what your mate would want, you could get a gift certificate.

Protection of pets

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

Does anyone know how the law in the US views the use of deadly force to protect pets? For a hypothetic example, you see a stranger trying to stomp your puppy — what would be the result of you shooting the threat to keep the puppy from dying?

Two ways to improve a Sig P238

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

Sig P238 is one of my favorite compact pistols. It can be made even more useful and handy with the following additions: a laser for sighting on the move or in low light, and a set for grips for better control.

A laser, either the red CTC Laserguard shown here (activated by gripping) or green Viridian R5 (activated by unholstering). A set of checkered Hogue grips that seems to have found the sweet spot between grippy but not abrasive. The friend who owns this pistol used to have trouble controlling in on recoil — which puzzled me, as the recoil is minimal — and it turned out to be due to the vertical serration on the stock grips. Once the grips were upgraded, the retention and practical accuracy improved tremendously.

Couch surfing for NRAAM 2016 in Louisville

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

Looks like I waited too long to get a hotel room and everything within reasonable range from the convention center is already booked. Would anyone have a spare couch available?

Attention, Nashville WW2 reenactors!

Originally published at VolkStudio Blog. You can comment here or there.

January 25-26, I will be working with Ron Norton on photos of really awesome reproductions of WW2 firearms. Who could be available to work with me in uniform? Also, if not available on those days but can work with me later, that’s of interest as well. I am mainly looking for the American troops, but can make use of other Allies or Axis for that and other projects.

Amie’s newest book is now available.  It features, among other things, the most evil bunny since Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I am quite pleased with how the cover came out.
