As many of you know, I’m huge on charitable giving, promoting worthy causes, and helping out friends. Cancer is one of those things that hits close to home. My mom is a breast cancer survivor, and kicking the ass of cancer is a big deal for me.
You’ve seen me mention my friend Dennis of Dragon Leatherworks here. He made two phenomenal holsters for me, and a pistol belt I can’t rave enough about. Dennis is phenomenally talented, and generous to a fault, which is why he is participating in a campaign to kick cancer’s ass. I’ve blogged about it previously, and you know how I feel about this issue. Kilted to Kick Cancer is the shit! Here’s some background on why kilts – other than they make men look extraordinarily HAWT!
You mean aside from being the most comfortable garment ever invented by man? I have never been asked why I am wearing a pink T-shirt. I have never had the desire to ask a man with a mustache why he has it. When a man walks into a room wearing a kilt, everyone has the same question…what’s he got on under there? A kilt demands attention anywhere it goes and we use that attention to start an awkward conversation with men of a certain age. Most often it is their wives that approach us and get the info, no surprises there. Kilts attract the ladies.
To join Kilted to Kick Cancer is simple:
Kilt up, get the facts, go about your business.
No walk-a-thons, no branded shampoos, just a man, a kilt and a message…multiplied 10,000 times. 1 man in 7 will be diagnosed with PC in their lifetime. 1 in 36 will be killed by it. Early recognition and treatment, often with simple changes to diet and exercise, can drastically improve survivability from 28% to 100% in your lifetime. If you’re age 40 and of African American descent or in a family with a history of PC, talk to your doctor about a PSA blood test. If you’re 50 talk to your doctor about your PSA and digital exam. Knowing your risks could save your life.
Yes, there are other cancers out there other than breast cancer, and they’re all dangerous and horrible. And they all need research, awareness, and resources. We need to fight, and I’m doing my part.
Now all that said, Dennis’ contribution to KtKC is not just good for the cause, but could also be good for you! Dennis has gone above and beyond to make the fundraiser worth your while, so he has gotten some amazing and generous people to autograph these beautiful holsters!
For every $10 donated you get one entry towards a holster that you want to try to win. Multiples of $10 can all go to one rig, or be split out among several. The holsters are Dennis’ signature line of Valkyrie paddle rigs, as follows:
- Tanburst, 1911 5″, autographed by Dean Cain (actor who played Superman in the 1990’s TV show Lois and Clark.) OK, I’ll say it. Om nom nom nom nom!
- Tanburst, 1911 5″, autographed by Jesse James of Monster Garage and West Coast Choppers fame.
- Greenburst with lime green Ostrich Skin and embossed with the MHI logo, autographed by Larry Correia. And yes, it has the MHI logo hand drawn by Larry!!! OMG!!
- Greenburst with green Kangaroo skin ALONG WITH Mahogany-trimmed Saddle Brown Crocodile skin, autographed by the Motor City Madman himself, Ted Nugent. He signed TWO! Yes, Ted is generous to a fault and is always willing to help out a good cause. Because, duh! He’s Ted!
