TTAG’s dedicated readership — our Armed Intelligentsia — are a demanding bunch. When we introduced the TTAG Pro Shop the AI said “Great, but where’s the Armed Intelligentsia stuff?” Good point. TTAG is Inside Baseball. Wearing our moniker makes Edward Snowdon’s pre-flight downloads seem like a Times Square billboard. Yeah, it’s that subtle. So we’ve created a line of AI gear. Rest assured that we plan on pimping the AI brand like Huggy Bear. Seriously: the AI logo will only adorn the best of the best. Royalty-wise. That said, we couldn’t let crass commercialism totally discombobulate our moral compass. So . . . fund raising for firearms freedom! . . .
To kick off the new line and hit the state thing hard, we’ve created a series of hats and shirts for those who want to help the less fortunate: i.e. gun owners living in California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey or, God forbid, New York. Of course, if you reside in one of those benighted anti-ballistic bastions and wear our gear and send us an image you’ll inspire us all!
For every state-supporting AI-branded product you buy—and you will buy lots—we’ll donate 50 percent of the profit to a local state gun rights group. No, we won’t be flying NetJets to Hawaii for corporate conferences on your dime. TTAG’s overhead is so low professional limbo dancers shake their heads in disbelief. We’ll be publishing the amount donated and the org so blessed here on the site. Transparency. Truth. That’s how we roll.
Again, for every ‘FREE (the state of your choice)’ item we sell, we’ll share half the profits with a gun rights org in that state (to be named sooner rather than later). It’s our way of sticking it to those who jumped hard and fast on the post-Newtown civilian disarmament bandwagon.
While the donations won’t rival Michael “Corporate Spy” Bloomberg’s countervailing spending, every little bit helps. Click on any of these items to go to the AI Gear Store and see all the new stuff. Your patronage is most appreciated.
And any manufacturer who wants to put our new AI logo on their products—I’m looking at you Cabot Guns—should contact Dan at email@example.com. Remembering that we reserve the right to to decide if your product makes the grade. In fact, we’ll put it to our readers from time to time. How great is that?
