    Besides a pain in the backside (like the FDA with Vaping) it's the Federal Firearms Act of 1938. Requirements regarding firearms, Gun law in the US on the national level which are enforced by the ATF (Bureau of Alochol, Tobacco, and Firearms).

    On the coat, I got some leather made to look like gator skin, and used it for the shoulders, sleeve ends, and pocket flaps. Then, using some of the same leather the hat was made from, I added pieces to make it have the country look. I also made belt loops, and the steampunked it.[​IMG]

    Wow!! This coat and the hat are great! My sewing abilities are limited to repairing small tears and putting on buttons so I am always impressed by people that can sew. I can't imagine how much time and effort creating something like this entails, but it is really nice! :)

    Great work, Mark! I LOVE that 3rd mod. I know it would be too big for my hand but love the look of it :)

    Beautiful and creative work, Sarah. It also serves as s protective weapon. One swipe of your sleeve cuff and your assailant has a torn face:shock:

    The cones are too short to cause injury. My fingernails are better weapons. I chose short cones for that reason. Besides, almost nobody around here is a threat to me.

    Beautiful coat, Sarah! I love the hardware and the textured leather.

    Mark - where did you get hold of that wood?

    Most of the people in town are very nice. It also helps that I had MMA trading while I was a member of the Guardian Angels back in 1991.

    I went through Law Enforcement Officer Training Academy. We all had Ti Quan Do, Close Quarters Battle, and hand to hand combat. Each of us had to achieve being able to fend off five simultaneously assailants. Fortunately I made it but in doing so I lost my composure and went into self preservation mode. I accidentally broke one of the guys (assailants) wrist... purely unintentionally.

    Wow! That must have been a very realistic attack. Scary!

    I would have loved that back in the day. I loved learning new techniques.

    When I was sparring against our chapter leader, I came within an inch of kicking him in the face. I intentionally held back. He made me squad leader the next day.

    The most dangerous situation we were in was a fight against a gang that was armed with chains, knives, and bats. We didn't carry weapons, but we used their bats and chains against them, and arrested every last one of them. The knives were left on the street for evidence.
