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!

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.
