Some of you know I got into this blogging business when I started The Truth About Cars. I have to say the car industry is, in the main, suffused with thieves and liars. I’m glad I’m out of it. In contrast . . .
I’ve had [almost] nothing but great experiences working in the firearms industry. In the rare cases where a gun company took umbrage at our reviews or coverage (e.g., Remington and Masterpiece Arms), we’ve been able to mend fences. With the sole exceptions of Charter Arms and Swarovski. (Our door is always open.)
As our Quote of the Day indicates, it looks like there’s a burned bridge between TTAG and Rock River Arms. So be it.
The contretemps over RRA’s and Springfield’s Illinois gun dealer carve-out and payments to anti-gun pols notwithstanding, I have nothing but admiration for the men and women supplying arms, ammunition and gun gear in support of Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms.
Then again, we’re in the industry. What’s the view like outside? How do you find the firearms industry? If you like a particular company’s stance or style, now would be a good time for a shout-out. If you’ve got a ten-foot pole for others, go for it.
And kudos to Stag Arms for creating that . . . thing for American Gun Chic.
