What Jeff Quinn Carries When He Can’t Carry A Gun

The NRA Convention is a gun-free zone. So what does Jeff Quinn, Gunblast guy, carry when he can’t carry a firearm? Glad you asked. It’s an Arno Bernand Gazelle with a sheep bone handle and a cape buffalo sheath. Quinn paid $235 for the South African knife with a 4.25″ blade. He’s not trained to use it for self-defense. “If a gun runs out I’m running,” Quinn told TTAG. “It’s too personal to stab someone.” Well that’s a relief. I guess. Make the jump for a close up.

      Last year when it was in Pittsburgh, I carried. The convention center, the city, the state, not so gun free 🙂

      I think it is the venue, per se. Still a surpise they would have it at a gun free venue.

    Nice little pig sticker.

    Did he pick muffin particles out of his teeth with it?

    A guy that scary doesn’t need a knife… Seriously, who the hell would screw with that guy? He looks like the ultimate badass

      Yeah, that’s what it’s all about, being a bad ass. If you don’t look the part, you can always make believe.

    The NRA convention as a defense-free zone. Wow.

    1. avatar mikeb302000 says:

      Yeah, wow is right. The interesting thing is the same guys who keep telling us how college campuses are where people are sitting ducks, are perfectly comfortable with the convention being a gun free zone. Maybe they’ve been exaggerating about the danger of gun free zones. Either that or they’re all in mortal danger.

        Yeah, we exagerate about gun free zone danger, nothing ever happens there, lol, Randy

    I like and am grateful for Jeff’s reviews (have learned much from them) and yet I consider them simply more detailed information not provided by the manufacturer. I am concerned with how they are virtually always too positive about whatever he is reviewing and I hope he is not too influenced with all the ads he has on his site. One thing I don’t like is reading about again and again are how so many different calibers have always been his favorite…

      I bought the Chiappa 1911 .22 as my first gun a few years ago based in large part on Jeff Quinn’s glowing review.

      I don’t put a lot of stock in Gunblast reviews any more.

    What kind of belt is that Jeff is wearing? Anyone know?

  10. avatar Don says:

    That’s a seriously classy little blade.

    -D

    J.Q. has nothing to fear. He is the gun industry’s version of Larry King. He only does fawning softball reviews.

    Send him a gun and you can expect rainbows and unicorns in return.

  12. avatar Joe_nobody says:

    I guess Jeff is unaware that he cannot carry a knife over 4 inches in MO.

  13. avatar William says:

    I’ve been reading Gunblast for years. I don’t much care if he does give everything a good review…it’s entertainment.

    Oh, and even though he looks like your crazy uncle who lives in the woods and eats possum, he seems like a genuinely nice guy. There’s still nobody in the firearms media I’d rather go shooting with.

    Except maybe Jesse Abbate, but that’s not quite the same thing.

    In response to the title, I was going to suggest “A seriously awesome beard?”

  15. avatar John says:

    He could tour with ZZ Top with that beard…

  16. avatar Double A.D. says:

    That’s a “dandy” little knife!

      Dammit! You beat me to it!

      Does he have a flashing ad for the maker on his site?
