  • Smith and Wesson Model 12-3 in .38 Special with a 4" barrel made in the late 70's
The Model 12 is a aluminium-alloy framed version of the Model 10, uses S&W's K-Frame and was made from 1953 till 1986 with either a 2" or 4" barrel. It weighs 19oz which made it an appealing choice for detectives or civilian wanting a lightweight conceal carry option.
In 1953, the United States Air Force (USAF) ordered a variant of the S&W Military & Police Airweight with a two-inch barrel and aluminum cylinder to be issued to US Air Force flight crew members, called the  M13.Some 40,000 Smith & Wesson M13 revolvers were produced. After persistent reports on cylinder and frame failure with the M13 and its counterpart, the Colt Aircrewman, the Air Force attempted to remedy the issue by issuing a dedicated low-pressure .38 cartridge, the M41 round. 
A civilian model of the M13 was released in 1953, called the Military & Police Airweight. This designation was changed in 1957 to the Model 12 Airweight. The Military & Police Airweight initially used both an aluminum cylinder and frame, and weighed only 14.5 ounces.

Since the Model 12 uses an alloy frame, it is not advisable to use +P ammunition since the frame may stretch during shooting. This is apparent when the primers have elongated firing pin marks. Very early versions have aluminum cylinders and should not be fired.

The two-inch barrel Model 12 is also called a snub-nose. Detectives and others with licenses to carry find snubnosed revolvers, such as the vintage Model 12, concealable, lighter in weight than their longer-barreled twins, and in an emergency, easy to deploy with their trim wood grips and round butt. The Model 12 is also a proven performer as a back-up pistol for some officers, who carry a larger caliber pistol at their waist.

  • Our Nomad9 Frame is a finished a serialized lower receiver compatible with Glock 19 Gen4.
•
It’s designed to fix a lot of the things we didn’t like about Glocks.
•
In certain conditions, the grip texture on factory Glocks just don’t provide enough traction - so we developed our own texture that provides maximum grip but doesn’t tear your hands apart.
•
We found the trigger guard on standard Glocks make it difficult to shoot with gloves - so we enlarged it while also moving it higher up to eliminate the common need for undercuts.
•
For some with small or large hands, the factory Glock grip just doesn’t fit right so in some cases they’re forced to modify their grip - we added an interchangeable backstrap to let you adjust the Nomad9 to your hands.
•
Oh and no more finger grooves.
•
We also saw a feature on certain race guns that allowed you to apply pressure with your off-hand thumb to control recoil - so we added a forward thumb ledge to our frame.
•
Slide bite is a common issue for lots of people out there with larger hands - so we added an extended beaver tail.
•
An internally integrated magwell flare makes reloads that much easier.
•
The Nomad9 Frame was designed from the ground up to allow for the highest possible grip, you’ll notice this immediately when shooting it.
•
Everything just feels right.

  • "Son, be strong. You will lose many friends, and many elders that you respect. The young ones will go. Perhaps even those soldiers you hate. “Things fall apart, the center will not hold.” Such things are inevitable. We all shall die inevitably. Up until then we can agree that at least we shall try to make our lives worthwhile and our deaths meaningful. It is tragic when our efforts are stopped in mid-stride. If there ever was a person that I met that has tried to make his life meaningful, it is you. As long as you can continue to provide consolation and guidance for the others, you will not have failed and have none to worry about to your lack of influence upon the course of their lives. Albeit there are no “good deaths”, at least you can justify that you’ve encouraged resolve, compunction, and awareness in your peers. That’s a life better led, a loss better embraced, a death better welcomed. That is where your mind is to be at; to enable courage, to drag forth the reluctant but powerful, to call others to action, and to be exemplary in your own conduct the sake of others. A bright voice in the din of war – figurative or otherwise – will be heard. Weep if you must. There is no shame in that... I love you. Dad." Nightstalker Pt. 1
I saw bleating sheep and a dying asp
Where the wind pressed its will upon solemn grass
I watched nightfall come and saw you pass
Delirious Shepard with your perfect mask
I heard a golden song from the throat of God
A gentle tone yet so very odd
I wept in silence, enraptured, awed
A gravedigger dug and a carpenter sawed
Is there anything worth dying for?
Whether in time of peace or time of war?
My salvation stolen by the Babylon whore
My trembling hands touched the derelict door

  • Looks like flames are coming off my face. Tip for those who like to make fun of red heads. Fire crotch might sound like an insult. But if I could throw literal flames from my crotch I’d be the most badass superhero ever.
/
Stupid ass Wolverine would try to start some shit and I would melt his metal body with flames coming from my crotch.
/
For the Harry Potter nerds, Harry would roll up on me with his lil wand, and I’d be like BLAMMMMM, set his ass on fire with my flame thrower crotch.
/
What’s the weak ass mofo from the Avengers with the bow and arrow? Hawknet or something? He’d try to arrest me for jay walking or some shit, and I’d BABOWWWW, turn his wooden bow and arrow to ash.

Think about it 🦸🏻‍♂️
