Well well look who pissed off their entire customer base, then tried to take it back:

Scumbag-Cheaper-Than-Dirt-Statement

Scumbag-Cheaper-Than-DirtToo Late!

I’m sure just like the Recoil MP7 incident, people will forget really fast this happened, and new people getting into shooting will not know any better… but I hope not.

Cant-Believe

I actually now regret not planning to go to SHOT this year… there would be so many booths I’d like to hang around just to being a fly on the wall eavesdropping on people telling companies such as Cheaper Than Dirt, and individuals like Buck Yeager where to go.  Definitely some missed opportunities in live blogging…

Thoughts?

Cowards, price gougers, and gun control people beware:

So the Cheaper Than Dirt store in TX and the online store are two completely different companies?  Since when?  The retial store is even listed on their website, so they obviously are not in competition with one another.

Smith & Wesson signed a deal with the devil with Clinton and for years and years and years and years and yeaaaaaaarrrrrs I wouldn’t TOUCH Smith & Wesson products.  There was a bunch of changes there at Smith and they got back on board, so I got back on board with Smith.

He talked about the S&W shield for a while there, so much that I figured he was on the payroll… who knows though maybe he just really likes the gun?

James-Yeager-Angel-ApprovedOn a related not, anyone have a Yeager body count # for me yet?  I’m sure he’s been called a coward a least a few times since he removed his “call out” video where he “lost his shit” on camera.  If the coward related body count is still at zero, I’m sure he will be able to get his numbers up at SHOT (this January) where I imagine he will be trolled at least a few times.

Nice try CNN:

Please share a photo of your firearm and tell us what you think about the idea of banning certain semiautomatic weapons. Help those who are not gun owners understand why owning these kinds of weapons is important to you.

Before I adjusted my tinfoil hat I was thinking they would work with gun grabbers to match weapons to IP addresses, then to houses to create a database “just in case”.

Thankfully pro-gun people are trolling the shit out of it hahahah:

FXhummel1 gets after OC’ers:

ENDO Keep Calm And Carry One T-ShirtThat is going to piss off some hardcore open carry guys, even though it’s done in jest.

FX is wearing the ENDO Keep Calm And Carry One t-shirt, which in my humble opinion everyone should own. :P

Access the revolving insert from the side and reach any lens in seconds:

I’m glad they didn’t call it an “Assault Backpack”.  Really cool / functional looking idea.

The Revolver-8 PL revolving backpack is available over at Amazon for $249.

Might be worth looking into if you do a lot of photography and lens switching.  If you google review on it, they all seem to be very positive.

Yea I get it.. supply and demand, but when you double to triple the price of things like magazines, people are going to get pissed off.  I’m not linking there, you can google it if you care.

When they pulled the same shit in 2008 before Obama was elected for the first time, I said to hell with them.  I hold grudges, but I’m sure their business didn’t suffer because I didn’t spend my few thousand per year on guns and accessories there.

They also announced this in the morning via facebook and twitter:

Cheaper Than Dirt! is suspending online sales of firearms effective immediately. We are reviewing our policy internally, and will continue to be the leader in the outdoor industry with our full line of gear and accessories.

*eye roll* congratulations, you’re retarded.  Way to jump on the bandwagon of ridiculous knee-jerk decisions such as Cerberus Capital Management selling the Freedom Group of companies, NBC Sports cancelling 3-Gun Nation, Discovery Channel canceling American Guns, DICK’s sporting goods not selling certain rifles anymore, and I’m sure either missed some or there will be more to add to this list in the next few weeks.

Oh well good riddance, I’ll spend my money elsewhere.  Maybe this company/franchise shake-up will be good for the industry as a whole, because investors who are not afraid of controversy, and support the 2nd amendment will step up to the plate and take control.

Thoughts?
