When a Fanatic Meets a Gunsmith
Concealed Carry Meets Cordless Drill
A DeWalt enthusiast and gunsmith recently collaborated on an intriguing project – the fully functional DeWalt Glock 21 .45. However, this Glock has a unique design, resembling one of DeWalt’s cordless drills. Interestingly, a drill bit emerges from just below the barrel, creating an unconventional appearance. Although the drill itself doesn’t work, one might wonder if a Glock is a viable alternative for creating holes.
Deception at Its Finest
Notably, the DeWalt-style Glock Model 21 functions as a genuine weapon. Its design is cleverly disguised, making it hard to distinguish from a regular cordless drill. Imagine carrying this tool in your belt, completely undetected. However, it’s important to note that such concealed carry would likely violate existing laws, though it might present an intriguing legal challenge.
The Mind behind the Innovation
Let us introduce Clint De Boer, the chief editor, who oversees this project. When he’s not exploring the latest power tools, Clint enjoys life as a devoted husband, proud father, and avid reader. His unwavering faith in Jesus is another aspect that defines him. Additionally, Clint holds a degree in recording engineering and has been actively involved in multimedia and online publishing since 1992.
A Diverse Skillset
Clint’s career has spanned the entire audio and video production spectrum. After completing his Associate Degree in Recording Engineering with top honors, he embarked on his journey at Soundelux Studios – a renowned post-production house specializing in feature film and television audio. Clint honed his skills as a dialogue editor, foley editor, and sound designer, contributing to numerous feature films.
Later, he transitioned into video editing, working as a senior AVID video editor for three years. Clint’s impressive client list includes Universal Pictures, Hollywood Pictures, Paramount Home Entertainment, NASA, Universal Studios, Planet Hollywood, SEGA, and NASCAR. He boasts expertise in film and video editing, color correction, digital video, and MPEG compression. Additionally, Clint holds several THX certifications and is ISF Level II certified.
A Passion for Publishing
In 1996, Clint founded CD Media, Inc., a publishing company that played a pivotal role in launching and developing several successful online publications. Noteworthy among these are Audioholics, where Clint served as editor-in-chief for 12 years, as well as Audiogurus and AV Gadgets. In 2008, he established Pro Tool Reviews and, in 2017, OPE Reviews, with a focus on landscaping and outdoor power equipment. Clint is also the driving force behind the Pro Tool Innovation Awards, an annual program that recognizes innovation across various industries.
The remarkable success of Pro Tool Reviews, now the industry’s largest power tool review platform, is a testament to Clint’s hard work and the dedication of his team. He acknowledges God’s guidance in their achievements and envisions further growth as they expand their reach. Pro Tool Reviews conducts rigorous evaluations of hand tools, power tools, and accessories, empowering users to make informed purchasing decisions. Their mission is to help construction professionals, tradespeople, and DIY enthusiasts alike improve their shopping experience, work smarter, and stay ahead of the game.
