Palmetto State Defense AR-15 Torture Test

Dugan Ashley from CarniK Con with some rifle science:

Classic Dugan.  haha that song / video at 8:00

I really hope 2014 will put a stop to what happened the last few years, where a million different fly-by-night companies pop up with their own AR-15 and try to sell it as “revolutionary”.  If I accepted all the “Hey Mike, can we send you our best AR-15 ever for T&E and a review?” I’d have had no time for eating or sleeping, and a collection of about 20 more rifles… all which would be basically the same except for various engravings and the fit and finish.  That shit is so boring… people need to start inventing something new and leave AR-15’s to the few companies that are already good at making them.  “But Mike… *FAMOUS BRAND HERE* doesn’t make an AR-15 forend that looks like enough of a tactical cheese grater for me, and they don’t make an 5 ft. long quadrail to accommodate the extreme shark jump costa grip I want to run.”

Carnik-Con-Dugan-Ashley-ENDOPeople seem to love their lower receiver branding, so I’m sure the Carnik Con lowers will be a hit.

If you’re buying a CarniK Con lower, make sure to pick up an AR-15 Builders Club t-shirt if you really want to be like Dugan.

Thoughts?

I see “Founded 2008” so you’re right they have been around for a minute. I actually wasn’t specifically alluding to them being fly-by-night in that paragraph anyway but I definitely had that assumption.

“If I accepted all the “Hey Mike, can we send you our best AR-15 ever for T&E and a review?” I’d have had no time for eating or sleeping, and a collection of about 20 more rifles”

If you don’t want the free boom sticks, can i be your intern? The chick in the devil wears prada got to keep all the crap in the samples closet. I even promise my behind the scenes expose of you will be quite complimentary.

(Although being in NYC, i guess i am now on the government disarm list because i read the word AR-15).

AR15s and 1911s… The two guns that everybody and their mothers are trying to cash in on by producing their own version.

Hey I can’t blame them, it’s certainly easier and cheaper to copy an old design than it is to come up with something totally new.

But I would like to see some genuine innovation, rather than people just puking out the same ol’ designs we’ve seen for years.

I have never seen you do a review and post it here.

Exactly. I did a few a bunch of years ago (bullet earphones, carbon fiber bag etc…) but quickly realized that my time was worth much more, and is much better spent elsewhere.
