View Full Version : Local boy makes good, or an SWAT article by a TFLer

Got my copy of SWAT this weekend, noticed an article on the .32 NAA by George Hill. Good article. Way to go.

And if you notice, Molon Labe shirts and hats are what the stylish gun writer is wearing these days. Hawaiian Shirts are soooo 90's. :)

Is that Saint George? I'm intimidated by just looking at the photo--the facial hair! Yikes, won't sleep tonight.

I'm not the only one sporting the TFL/Molon Labe swag. Take a look at the other pictures around the rag.
Note to any and all gunwriters - If you want to be taken seriously, you must wear a Molon Labe hat. It's the new "1*" this year. Even Rich is wearing one. And he didn't shave for his pic either. :p

Speaking of beards - what's up with my hands and arms? They look like Ent arms. I'm TREEBEARD! Yikes!

Well, at least facial hair is better than flowered shirts!;) And George didn't even get photographed pointing the gun at himself.

Ya great article George and HUGE STYLE points!:D

I agree. Well written article, George. My main complaint about gun rags is that the articles are always so dry. George, you added a little flair. Also piqued my interest in this new round.

Erick, yeah, but Bob has enough class to pull it off.

If George did not dress correctly at least he got the "shoot until maimed" standard stock in. All he needs is a big cowboy hat and some pointy elf boots and he can go shoot "100s of thousands of magnum" loads, all one-handed, blindfolded, offbalance at running jackrabbits at 177.5 yards with his fellow gun writers.:D

I'm sure it's just an oversight, but you forgot "While rolling a smoke with his free hand, horseback and in a high wind."

Denny, well, the free hand is maimed from shooting a small gun with an improper grip and lots of sharp edges so you can't be rolling a smoke. No great loss, can you smoke out in the desert in the hairy-chested West with the drought and all?

Besides, smoking isn't good for you healthwise and tactically. Remember "All Is Quiet on the Western Front"?:)

Rolling a smoke? Naw... I don't smoke. How about uncapped an ice cold Mt Dew?

True Story: At my Police Academy one of the driving course stages involved (and I swear on a box of freashly rolled .45s) driving the course while doing all the following at the same time:
1. Talking on the radio.
2. eating 3 pastries.
3. Downing a can of soda.

I passed.

Okay, it was an "Extra Credit" stage... but I needed it after sending my Impalla cruiser across the grass field off the course and spinning like I was trying to drive like a figure skater. I was trying to set a course record and the power steering hiccuped and sent me out of control.

Who made the "miniaturized .357 sig" crack?

That was said by my Brother-In-Law.

Be nice to him... I'm trying to get him to sell me that Jeep Comando I'm standing by in the photo. Big V-8 with a hot-rod Holley Fuel Injection system in it. Oh Boy that Jeep is a monster!

Still haven't seen the article...but eagerly waiting.

Great article, George.

I agree, pretty decent article.

Along the lines of the Molon Labe apparel, I have several t-shirts I make (and have sold on Glocktalk, to several hundred people) how would I go about finding if people here are interested? One is the Sheepdog shirt, a shooter shirt that doesn't look like one...... the other is a patriotic shirt. The General Discussion forum would make sense as a place but the "shooting stuff only" line kind of downed that one.

If you guys are interested in reading about the shirts, www.thorn.org/sheepdog.htm some guys from Glocktalk are on here, and several might have my shirts.
