By popular demand, we have made two updates to the Pistols of the Warlords Kickstarter:
First, we are offering Dolf Goldsmith’s monograph on Chinese Warlord-Era rifles, “Arming the Dragon”, as a standalone pledge.
Second, we are pleased to announce that you have ordered enough copies that we can make it a hardcover printing instead of softcover as we originally planned. So, everyone who has pledged for a copy already will get a hardcover copy. Everyone who has pledged for a Collector’s Edition book will be getting a copy of Arming the Dragon (hardcover) included with their book for free.
We were excited to be able to offer a reprint of this work in the first place, and it’s great to see how much interest you all have in it! I’m really looking forward to sending Dolf a nice royalty check that he is absolutely not expecting. 🙂
Lastly, don’t forget that we will be celebrating the last two hours of the campaign with a livestream, from 7pm to 9pm Pacific (10pm-midnight Eastern). We’ll be trying out some of the cocktails from the book, talking about Chinese guns, and generally having a good time…join us!
Want to get in on the Kickstarter before it ends? Here’s your link:
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!
