From a magazine article on the Agrip:

Although AGrip will become matted with use, a quick scrub will restore the nap.

I'm not convinced it's the end-all be-all grip I thought it would turn out to be originally, I'll put the buying on hold for now.

If you don't have a skateboard shop nearby for 12x36" sheets of grip tape, you can always go to Homey Depot and get a narrower roll of the stuff for $12.

3M Safety-Walk is what I've used. I use it on all kinds of things - mobile phones, network cable-testers, edges of a laptop - pretty much anything I want to make sure I don't drop.

It's a near copy of a Glock, but with a horrid trigger. I don't know HOW they did it, but they somehow made a pistol that is even uglier than a Glock.

From what I understand the Sigma trigger is pretty easily fixed. There are 2 extra hard springs and you just take them out.

Most gunswords I've seen look like amusing curiosities that have no real way to grip it as a sword and would probably fall apart if you actually tried to use them. That one looks sturdy as gently caress and actually practical.

Although you'd probably stab yourself trying to muzzle-load it.

Wikipedia says the Elgin was impractical and hated by the few troops who used it though. Oh well.

I don't promote fights, I pick fights. I'm better than Jon Jones. I'm better than Sean Combs. I am even better than John Holmes.

At my grandmother's British antique shop (British only gently caress all that gold French bullshit) we had a good number of weird gun cane things. Sword canes? Not so much.

Damnit I wish she was still around. While I grew up in the south my English grandmother was the first person to show me how to break down and clean a shotgun.

Dunno about their availability in normal supermarkets, but you can occasionally find them on military bases stateside, either at the BX or commissary or shoppette.
