Lawrence Holsworth – Founder, Chief Writer, and Editor-in-Chief:

“Strike-Hold!” is the motto of the 504th Airborne Infantry Regiment in which I served during the 1980′s.  When I created the original version of this site back in October 2008 (, “Strike-Hold!” seemed a fitting name for a site dedicated to airborne and special operations forces – both historical and modern day – as well as the equipment and weapons they use.

The Strike-Hold Blog is not just another military-themed media channel, nor is it just another news site, nor is it a give-us-free-shit-and-we’ll-review-it-for-you site. The Strike-Hold Blog is more like an online magazine. We do help spread the word about new products that we like the look of, and we also do proper objective reviews of products by people who know what they’re talking about. We’re also the place to visit for in-depth background and historical articles about subjects of interest (often about things that aren’t as well known).

Last, and by no means least, the Strike-Hold Blog is the media side of Strike-Hold Consulting – a full spectrum business and market development service provider for companies in the defense equipment, tactical gear and clothing and airsoft market segments. Contact us to discuss how we could help you.

Strike Hard, Hold Fast!
