want to build a "gauntlet" holster for a sub-compact gbb

Recommended Posts

I just got this new pistol through, its a g27 kjw - i dont have a blowback, and cause im doing a low-cap all day game next week i need something i can shoot while holding my m4 without needing to draw in an emergency (attack the fortress particularly). Ive been cut to shreds charging a small bunker all through simple "ammo management issues", and i mean torn to pieces, but I play a shocktroop in my little gang/ informal team, so the suicide bits my job. Actually its frigging ntastic charging a strongpoint; I even got to be the human bomb- IED guy once. For once id like 2 survive; i deserve a ballsier nickname than "target"...so im getting tooled up with big pyro, my skorpion, and the "gauntlet of doom micro".

 

I guess the idea is to use a skeleton holster with really simple construction, either mounted directly onto one of my gloves or worn watch style. Im not up on pistol holsters; can anybody recomend something like this, real light and modular ie able to take a variety of straps/belts.

 

Anyone whose read Steve Kings The Stand will know what i mean. One of his minor villains comes to execute the good guy armed with "A .45 strapped to a Gauntlet on Elders wrist"....vague i know but a ppk sized glock wd be easier to wear than a 1 kg colt for sure.

Stuff like that is best left in the fantasy book realm.  It would become super annoying in 10 seconds.  Do you have armour to chest mount it to?  That would be better really.

As Hitman says, it may sound col but there is a reason it doesn't exist in the real world.  Stick your Glock in a decent holster instead.

I nevercdid build the gauntlet- the concept works tho. I strapped the glock to a wide watch strap; muzzle tucked into my best gloves. Just for a laugh mind; we had a mini contest to se who could pack the most guns at one time while remaining able to m9ve. I like tiny guns; before getting a dragunov (i dont say svd- venereal disease springs to mind) the longest was a colt commando. I managed 7.

http://www.everydaynodaysoff.com/2010/03/03/the-sleeve-gun/ has a guide to making one in a youtube video there was a taxi driver toy one if you can track one down.

 

Like this but branded

And closer to the film design.

Wow! Right, in a way I'm gutted; I thought Id created a new concept in lazy shooting, removing the need to even draw the pistol...but this is perfect though-very "Taxi Driver". Id settled on getting a clip on skeleton holster, but this is a new project for me

There are far lazier ways in the art of lazy shooting. Best one I've come across involves a prosthetic arm in place of your actual arm while wearing a jacket. All the while your real arm is tucked inside, gun in hand and ready to fire.

Its an art-and thats a masters work. Lazy shooting is very important now its getting hot imho. I was busy laying in a foxhole, being dead and waiting for the resurrection when a new concept flashed into my mind: "The Nasty Roller"- thats a good RC tank with as many AEGs I can tape to it plus helmet cam- not only will it destroy the other team but it technically cant be killed what it being a machine and all.

About the RC tank: In my games (and all the ones I use to go) that tank would need special rules OR be considered part of your equipment, that means that once you get a hit in it YOU are dead, usually the only option to a "gear hit" is that in the main gun, if you have a second gun you can "discard" the main and keep on using the second.

You want a melee shield?? ask for instructions and permission

You want to fire without offering a chance to get fired?? ask for instructions and permission

Otherwise shooting without seeing the target if always forbidden (you can not control the minimum engagement distance and this is supposed to be a fair play, offer the opportunity to be hit yourself too).

 

On the other hand you should think that once you "kill" the first enemy all of them will try to not hit but destroy your RC tank (I would surely do, but I am a mean person) for the shake of fair play/punishment to the rich as happens with drones and so.

Just noticed that box art - was it a little colt .25 he used in that film?

The arms dealer calls it a Colt .25 but it's actually a S&W Escort and it magically turns into a Sterling Arms Pistol in a shot at the shooting range.

I'm impressed hitman- I've just read the most complete gun encyclopaedia yet- every civilian and millotary issue since the colt walker- every single ak variant on the planet even - and neither of those were in there. The sterling escort though- is that the British manufacturer

 

About the tank thing-just a bit of a giggle but I think something like that CD work in a small well planned game. I mean mounting an AEG WD be impractical but it cd b a twist on the old defuse the bmb thing- the tank CD b the bomb and those things are programmed to register shots. The Germans even used these in ww2 - I saw one at bovington.

 

 

Also a recon droid would b cool in a snipers only game, if there even is such a thing.

The Sterling is unrelated to the British Sterling Armaments Company.  I gather quite a few companies have used the Sterling name.

It just sounds right. Best name of all time though imo Armalite. Rolls of the tongue, and oh so modern sounding after all this time.

 

BTW have you heard of a baby Melior 6.35 mm? Quite big among officers back when pistols were a status thing?

6.35 is just the European term for .25acp for some reason the European market converts us imperial caliber to metric quite often hence the baby browning in 7.65mm in the uk/europe rather than in .32acp in the us.

 

I'd rather have the 1903 hammer less as a status pistol over a melior for the increased reliability well that or a ppk.

Bullet calibres will always be a complete and utter mystery to me. I'm frogging clueless tbh. But yeah I only mention the melior because i actually owned one years back - It was definitely browning derived and just so dinkey....it was a war trophy taken from an Italian Officer in WW2. You have to love that- access to the most iconic and dare I say sexy berrettas ever made and this officer chooses an obscure Belgium pistol with no real aesthetic or ballistic value whatsoever.

 

The moment I learned about mandatory 5 years for possession I got rid. Anonymous armistice or whatever they're called were luckily in effect. Family heirloom, perfect condition and some minor historical value- smelted. No worries though - Nome at all. The last 5 years could have been better but in HMP Parkhurst? Could a been a lot worse too .

About the WWII RC tank, you are right, a kind of "mobile anti tank mine" the "goliath" that failed because any joe could fire it previously to get the objetive tank, no not a good comparison ;) but a nice birth for the electronic toy vehicles.

 

I used once in a larp/airsoft game a fixed turret (well p90 in a tripod with a move sensor) and sometimes people to make new rules for this kind of uses.

Shame you couldn't get it to a sympathetic rfd and get it on a 7.1 collector/historical interest permit. But it's probably a crime for the rfd to make magically appear on the books :(

 

Such a shame so many things with real value get destroyed.
