That’s a potential savings of over 50% for the knife alone, plus you get a signed copy of ‘Roll Hard’ on top of that.


The PUP Taco from Bawidamann & HSGI

Friday, August 30th, 2013

What do you get when you combine the HSGI Taco with a Bawidamann PUP.


According to Bawidamann, this is what you do:

Tools needed: 4 hands, Phillips screwdriver, flathead screwdriver, some patience, and tons of swearing. Installing a HSGI TACO onto anything is not fun. This is ESPECIALLY NOT FUN. But the end result is worth the hassle. Just another thing you can do with this handy piece of kit.

Adjustable to securely fit: 1 inch – 3 inch belts in 3/8 inch increments. Move retention Post-nut/Screw assembly up or down the face of the PUP in a “diagonal checkers jump” to designated belt width fit. Further fit is controlled by adjusting tension on rubber washers of the Belt retention Post-nut/Screw. Tighten the screw, the rubber washers expand, and retention increases.

Btw, my friend Andrew Bawidamann shared a sneak peek at his latest piece, a Spartan Girl. That guy is like a bottle of fine wine. He gets better and better with age.


Can’t wait to see the finished piece.


Johnny PMAGs Available Through Grey Ghost

Friday, August 30th, 2013

During SHOT Show Drake Clark reached me about helping out with an upcoming project. John Noveske had just passed away and Magpul was going to commit to a run of special “Johnny” PMAGs to raise money for his family. He asked if I would help. While I had only met John once through the introduction of Stickman, we had quite a few friends in common. And, I appreciated his hard work and innovation. “Sure,” I told Drake, “count me in!” Now, I know some of you guys are asking yourselves why the family of a guy who owned a business would need money. Well, my answer is simple. It’s for his kids. Very, very few small business owners are rich, or even well off. They work insane hours and put everything extra back into the business. And now, in the case of Noveske, John, the creative force behind the brand, is gone. It will never be the same and the lives of his kids will never be the same. As a father and small business owner, I can tell you, none of this was lost on me. It’s the reason I agreed to be a part of this and a reason I purchased some of these magazines when they were first available.


Now mind you, all of this planning for the Johnny mag was going on during the panic of 2013. Despite this, Magpul came through with the initial push which they offered in conjunction with Noveske. And then, another tragedy struck, and a similar magazine-based fundraising campaign came along. And during that period, in late Spring, 300 Johnny PMAGs showed up at my door. When I was planning to start this fundraising effort, I foolishly thought I could offer them through PayPal, but I soon found out that wasn’t possible. Then, eBay was a bust. SSD has a long reach but what we don’t have is a web store. Once the other fundraising effort ended I reached out to my friends at Grey Ghost Gear and they thankfully agreed to handle the sales aspect of this effort.

If you missed out on the initial run of Johnny mags, Grey Ghost has just under 300 (they are selling already). The Johnny PMAG is a Magpul GEN M2 30 round PMAG designed for 5.56×45 NATO and .223 Remington AR15/ M4 platform weapons. This memorial magazine includes the Noveske “Flaming Pig” on one side, and the Noveske logo on the flip side.



Please join us in supporting the Noveske and remembering an innovator by purchasing one or more of these memorial magazines.
