Thank you for your most kind and gracious offer mate!

You and every other vulture on my phone list is beseeching me to join the evaluation team ;)

Such glorious offers of sacrifice! :P

On a more serious note, I’ve investigated stuff like Kickstarter, but will be avoiding them because of a couple of reasons:
a. Most of the crowd funding organizations don’t like guns
b. They impose some onerous conditions.

Never fear though, we’re not abandoning the crowd funding concept completely, just eliminating the middle man.
What we’ll be doing is offering a “pre-order” crowd funding model through the Packs and Beyond website when the time comes.
That way, we get to control the process a bit more, whilst still avoiding a lot of the financial risk (looking at least $10k for an initial production run of 50 units). There’s some risk I’m willing to absorb, because it’s my name and product. And there’s some risk that I can’t wear because I just can’t afford to raise the capital initially since my dayjob covers living expenses (I gotta keep my girls fed with the lights on) and leaves little for playing risk.


Forward!
Where we are, where we belong, where we should be.

Show show you a place to will cut them one by one if you like its just working out the costs, its a engineering site that acts as the middle man between you and volume production and its just a meet and greet service so if you need to build a prototype they wil and if you want a small run of 50 they will and if you want 5000 they can,
