Springfield armory

They made a sappy video:

*shrug* I never saw a reason to buy Springfield’s “Glock”, and I still don’t.  Sure they make some other nice stuff, but I’m not buying long guns right now.  I really wish that CEO Dennis would have cried during the video… he was close, but I wanted a tear.

YankeeMarshal has a watchable video every now and then.  This is one of them. Here’s him talking about the debacle:

Thoughts?  You buying it?  You applaud Rob Letham for standing up for them, or do you think he’s sus now too?

There are some funny / good comments on Springfield Armory’s video, if you have time to click through and check them out.

It still pisses me off that Springfield Armory just “bought the name” in 1974 yet keep the bold “Since 1794” on the logo suggesting it’s the original.

Were you aware?  haha basically if you subscribe to them on YouTube they still won’t shut up about it.  They even have an all-girl show out now:

PLOT TWIST: Their biggest competitor is… THEMSELVES.  *whoa guys… mind blown.*

Jokes aside, if this show is anything like ABC’s The Bachelor, I’m down. *SMH Nick should have picked Raven* Moving on here’s Episode #1:

Seven episodes are up on their channel if you click through. The one thing which I’m hesitant about, is that at least two of those girls post on instagram NON STOP. It’s probably easy money, but it just comes across (to me anyways) as thirsty for approval and praise… which naturally all the m’lady neckbeards are quick to hand out.

Thoughts?

Larry Vuitton doing a good job pretending he gives a shit about this at SHOT this year:

Holy how big is the Springfield Armory marketing budget?  I swear like 90% of the gun YouTubers have some Saint related video up.  If you follow Springfield on YouTube I’m also guessing you’ve definitely had enough Saint related videos to last a lifetime.  I didn’t count the exact number, but if you click through to their channel here, you’ll see what I mean.

I’m proposing that 2017 be the year of no one giving a shit about “new” AR-15s.  I was already like that since about 2014, but I hope it catches on.  I actually think it might be, because already we lost Olympic Arms according to the announcement on their site.  No reason mentioned, but they were one of the OG’s, so times must be tough.  Gotta evolve brAh.

haha at the end of the video you can tell they buttered LAV up because he mentions that they even used his Vickers Tactical sling on the video stuff.

The MSRP of this “Saint” is $899.  haha man that name is embarrassing to even type.

With a shitty new vinyl wall cling depicting one of their firearms:

These things are terrible for so many reasons.  First of all, their firearms in stock configurations are boring as hell.  Secondly, using isometric views for this purpose just looks queer.  My tertiary concern is that you are essentially putting a 2 foot sticker on your wall.  I’m not saying everyone’s house has to look like something out of the pages of Architectural Digest, but for god’s sake have some dignity.

If you have no respect for the aesthetics of a particular room in your house, or the feelings of your significant other then head over to the Springfield Armory website and drop $30 on one of these 2 ft. monstrosities.

And no I wouldn’t be on board if Glock did the same thing with vinyl clings.

Thoughts?
