Well, we FINALLY launched the swag store... we'd wanted it up before Christmas, but I got engaged to the girl that was in charge of handling the website side of things, so we were literally otherwise engaged.

*snicker*snicker*

Bad puns aside, we're rolling out with a design penned by the Commander of the 1st Special Service Force from World War II; it's a sticker he made for the battle of Anzio. During the fighting, the 1st SSF (better known as the Black Devils for their blackened faces or The Devil's Brigade) would run "unconventional" or covert missions into German territory, and leave these stickers on the helmets of the German casualties and emplacements they left behind. The German "das dicke ende kommt noch!" translates into "The worst is yet to come!" It was a psychological campaign designed to take the fight out of the German enemies, as the 1st SSF was charged with defending a full quarter of the allied lines during the beachhead, and anything they could do to conjure up fear within the enemy would be to their advantage.

We're going to be following it with a few more designs; some gun-centric, some military- or historically-themed like this (we're trying to track down a good copy of the old RCMP SERT crest for our LEO readers), and others that are just regular old flag waving patriotic Canadian stuff. The next batch of stuff will be a little bit less grisly, but I wanted this one first because it's just about the coolest little sticker I've ever heard of, and the 1st SSF was Canada's first contribution to the special forces community that is now so key to modern warfare. But, in case it's not your cup of tea (hey we can't all be winners, right) we've got no less than 23 different designs in the works right now.

Check it out at calibremag.ca/store

And if you guys think of any other designs you want us to bring into reality... let me know!

Very nice!
Will the t-shirts be available in any bigger sizes for the less than svelte?

Yeah, our next orders will all include a few XXLs. We are actually sending in the next design today!

One for the gun cabinet

I have a bunch of gun stickers I have bought/ been given/traded over the years, but haven't put on a cabinet yet. I guess I have to decide which one I like the best. You have inspired me to choose one and start decorating.

To be honest, most of mine wind up on the rolling tool chest I keep my ammo, reloading and random gun/hunting supplies in. On the off chance I save up and buy that safe....:).

My stickers are here! One is going on my JD lawn tractor when the warm weather shows up. Hope all the tree rats in the neighborhood can read German!

I'd buy a t-shirt with the AR Bolt face on it in a heart beat.

Thanks for the feedback... we just may do a run of those. On the chest, small, or on the back, big?

Awesome; I'll run the shirt idea past Courtney as she handles that stuff. As for smaller stickers... Yes we can do that. I think around the end of March we will be re-ordering stickers and that's at latest.

Either. Both. ESnel's idea is good too.
