Stretch goals are supposed to last the length of a campaign, not all be blown away in the first 10 days. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fantastic “problem” to have…and I’m overwhelmed by the incredible level of excitement and enthusiasm you all have for this book. But, it does seem a bit weird to leave the Kickstarter with no special goal for its remaining 19 days…
So, here’s what we are going to do. We are posting one final stretch goal: a global book signing tour if we hit $2 million. I will take a couple weeks during the early months of 2022 (after the books have shipped) and travel around North America and Europe to meet up with you all, sign some books, have some food (and whisky), and a general good time. I’ll cover a week’s worth of major US cities, a couple in Canada, and then the rest of the countries that make up the top ten for Kickstarter pledges.
Those are led by the UK coming in #3 (behind the US and Canada). As of now, it also includes Germany, Sweden, Norway, France, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. That’s 9 countries…the last one (actually #4 in pledges) is Australia – and yes, I will also come to Australia on this tour if we hit the goal.
So, if you want to make that a reality (which would be truly insane, in the best possible way), spread the word about the book, and maybe check out some of the add-on options we have in the Kickstarter!
At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
