I am the happy owner of Clockwork Engines LLC, though I'm not really making much at the moment for lack of funds, supplies, and facilities needed to do much.
Once I can start making further progress, I will be creating and selling a number of analog, Steampunk inspired devices. Ranging from lawn care machines to steam powered vehicles in a range of sizes, as well as several methods of power generation which exclude burnable fuel.
... Though, I should probably focus on starting a bit smaller, yes?
"What you listed above is mostly what I've used and trained with and fought with so far as hand to hand combat weapons are concerned. I would also have to add Sword (war hammer) and shield (usually a heater shield) in my realm of experience. I…"
This seems like it might be relevant given the conversation(s) that started from my last discussion.What fighting styles do you prefer to use, and what weapons are you most comfortable with?Personally, I prefer a Florentine style mostly, though I have practiced with pole-arms of several types two handed sword styles (for Bastard sword, Katana, European Great Swords, etc).As for weapons; a Saber predominantly, or a Katana depending on the situation. One or two Sidearms, as I wrote of in my last…See More
"I have to agree with you on the Florentine Sword bit here Thorn. With Practice it is quite possible to use 2 swords at once, very competently. And Florentine, if you can master it, is indeed a very effective skill for exactly the reason you…"
"I have been working on a design for some years now, have restarted and reworked the design about three times.
I have settled on a dual envelope design with the main body of the ship only slightly lower than the envelopes on ether side and connected…"
"I hadn't thought of the S&W Model 3.
Again, thank you. Smith & Wesson no-longer makes them but I have already found a few alternate makers. I will still need to find some one who has one, possibly at a gun show. I…"
"Though you aren't wrong, I would have to disagree with you on this point.
When you are speaking of the depiction of such techniques in most modern media (video games, movies, TV, etc.) you would be absolutely right. However, this…"
"The whole thing is that anyone can tell you that you don't ever dual wield. Its a two handed operation to use a firearm, its a two handed operation to wield a sword. As a point of emphasis, its a two handed operation to use the…"
"I understand your frustration over blaming the firing mechanism for any accidental firing, I am well aware that any such action would be entirely my own fault.
That is why I have this problem with the decision. Since I intend to use at…"
"Thank you for the insight, and I did initially consider an automatic, and as such fire arms go, I do rather like the Mauser C96 (Broom-handle) as well, or the Colt 1911 Service Pistol.
I decided to opt for the revolver for their simple and…"
"This whole thing about increased risk of accidental fire with a double action is grossly overrated.
First off, if you are in a situation where you have to draw a sword, then your handgun should have never left the holster.
Second, the very…"
"Know you prefer revolvers however, I'd go with an auto like a Broom Handle Mauser myself, but then I prefer higher capacity and quicker reload. I would say maybe consider, for instance, what if the off hand weapon suddenly becomes the main…"
Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,As this is my first discussion on this group, I feel obliged to introduce myself.My name is Thorn Emrys Martinek, Proprietor of Clockwork Engines, L.L.C., dreamer, maker, swordslinger.I am actively working to assemble my preferred set of weaponry. Simply described, this is to consist of; a saber, two revolvers, and any number of smaller backup weapons ranging from a tomahawk to various knifes.My question involves the Revolvers, one of which would be, potentially,…See More
