Ok, I'm down for X-treem's book and from Mr Burell's review, Santini's Concealments book.

Another question.

I have the following already:

Siberian chain
Thumbcuffs
A couple different regulation handcuffs
Two different sets of chain shackles
StraightJacket
Incredible acting ability
A couple different gimmicked locks

I'm looking for some dress items, and a couple things to make or buy that would round out the set. Keep in mind, I'm only doing performances, and not challenges.

What does everyone think about the following:

1. Leg Irons
2. Belly chains
3. The Blue Box
4. Your Idea?

Leg irons seem to be underated which is a shame.

I do a great trick where I use a set of grease lightening leg irons and pick them whilst playing the guitar and a member of the audience sings.

There's a great bit for the Blue Box in concealments so enjoy

The blue box is really an ingenius bit of info. A must read.

Think about it this way. If you were a super criminal and they wanted you to be locked up for a longtime, what would they use?

Answers?

Waist chains
Leg irons
Maximus security handcuffs
A cage (X-Treem actually is working on some right now)

One of those silence of the lamb like face masks for comedy or dramatic flare!

Fraternally Yours,

Hello,

Thank you for your interest in Concealments. Why should you have to wait a couple of weeks for it? I always have it in stock and it ships right out upon being payed for. True it is coming out of Canada but others who have ordered it (including many international buyers) have always received it in a prompt fashion. Rest assured that
"Concealments", like all of the Strictly Underground products, is constantly in stock and ready to go! Thank you once again for your intertest and I trust you will enjoy this unique volume.

Regards, Steve Santini

Oh no Steve... I didn't mean shipping for the book, I meant cash flow. I've been shopping pretty heavy for the last week and now I'm waiting because I don't have the spare change now.

In fact I was hoping to get a signed copy. Are you signing any of the the Underground copies?

Mike

that's awesome. I like seeing more escapologists getting along. We're so closed of a society.

Mike, Steve has sent me packages from Canada, and 5 days is the most I ever had to wait. I believe most of Steve's product is here in the U.S. though, and usually will arrive in 3 days if not sooner. Of course the post office is a scarey entity, So I must have a disclaimer, DISCLAIMER.
