Part of the appeal of the SHOT Show is the one-on-one contact with manufacturers that create the products we love to test. The schmoozing and occasional boozing allows for much better access than we’d ever get bouncing emails and texts back and forth. One of the manufacturers I looked forward to seeing was the group of guys from BlackPoint Tactical, makers of my open carry AIWB rig of choice. I knew they had a soft spot for TTAG, our readers, and our entire staff. Sensing weakness, perhaps softened by breathing Venetian air for four days straight, I pounced . . .
Given how loyal our readers are, the least I could do was take the BlackPoint guys behind the woodshed to get a TTAG-only discount on their fine pieces of kit. In a suite high above the bright lights and deafening din, I told ’em, “You gotta treat our readers right. We need steep discounts. Free Shipping. The works.”
“Our holsters are sold as part of the SIG Legion line. We don’t need to discount them”, they replied.
I put back my third complimentary gatorade, gave them my best Blake, and laid out the pitch.
We emerged bloody, bruised, and battered several hours later, but I got the better of them.
