Heavy Weapon will blow you away with explosions, machine guns, muscles, one-liners,
and more 80's cultural nods than you can shake a sun-faded VHS tape at!

For nearly a decade, Sergeant John Magnum was the lead member of an elite Special Forces group. After his entire battalion was
massacred in front of him during the final years of the Vietnam War, he became consumed with guilt over their deaths,
and decided to leave the military for good. He just wanted to live a normal life and forget his violent past...

...But now, 10 years later, his former Commanding Officer, Colonel Deckard, has tracked him down to inform him that
a group of POWs that were captured during the war so many years ago have been found and are being used as slave labor
for a drug cartel in South America. Deckard asks Magnum to accompany him as a consultant on a Top Secret mission
to rescue the POWs, but Magnum refuses - It's not his battle anymore.

Soon after, Magnum learns from his old Army buddy, Richter, that Deckard's team has not only failed their mission, but were captured,
and are being tortured then killed one-by-one at the hands of a ruthless drug lord. Magnum vows that he will exact his revenge on
everyone in his path to rescue Deckard and the POWs from the clutches of their brutal captors...
...but will this one-man army be enough to make it out alive?

Welp, everything is surely a go.

I've already begun preparing for getting the M.E. produced. Now I just have to ask for a little more patience since Kickstarter doesn't release the funds for "a few weeks" according to the email I just got from them. So once I get the money in hand, I'll start things a chuggin'. Barring any further issues, I might be able to get these mailed out as soon as the end of May or early June but don't hold me to it. It all depends on when I get the money since production time shouldn't be more than maybe a couple of weeks.

I'll keep everyone updated.

In the meantime, anyone who has yet to purchase their ME can feel free to contact me, and/or just shoot that Paypal over and I'll put you on the mailing list.

Well, folks...everything is done and in-hand for the Munition Edition except the final books because I got my proof copy and felt the cover was slightly lacking, so I added a tad bit of spice and should be getting the next proof soon, then off for mass print. Expecting to start assembling the M.E. and shipping around late August, or September.

At the moment, both paperback editions are available on Amazon, and the hardcovers are available for purchase. (see http://www.heavy-weapon.com for info/links). The M.E. is available for pre-order if you want to contact me directly, otherwise I'll have them up on the website soon.

Just FYI,
For anyone interested in getting a Munition Edition, I will only have a handful left in stock for direct sale from the first Kickstarter... I sold just about every single one produced so far, and I'm flat broke for producing the remainder of the planned 250 copies, so if you want an M.E. or anything else for that matter, here's my new Kickstarter to get funding to complete the print run:
