They built quite the brand.  CEO man is reflecting:

Initially I wouldn’t have expected growth like that even with the insane panic buying (“Obummer guNNaH taKe MuH Guns”) state of the market a while back… but their AR-15s are quite affordable and the company has seemed to have been able to scale up effortlessly to meet demand (when others could not).  Good stuff.  As long as people keep buying AR-15s they should be alright.  It was good to see them diversify into the 3d printed suppressor market recently.  I’m sure they have their eye on a few other markets too.

I was gonna roast Marty’s fit, but I’ll let that man live because he’s probably a dad and a grandpa.  I suppose I can’t expect everyone who has money to cop the illest jawnz.

This is genius:

Here’s how to load, fire, and unload it (for those who aren’t familiar):

Man muzzleloaders are a lot of work to shoot, but holy is that funny.  I bet they will sell TONS of them.  I bet California will figure out some way to ban it eventually.

Next up a suppressed muzzleloader pistol?

You can pick one of these up for $1000 over at Silencerco.

The state of the customized gun industry is grim:

The gun industry in general is really grim right now.  Sure there are a few companies putting out some cool stuff, but for the most part everything is incredibly cringey.  Who would actually want a shitty looking red colored subcompact glock, with wet kleenx stippling and colored filled dripping lettering “BLOOD BATH”?  To think that some piehitter actually thinks this is cool, and paid good money to have it done is astonishing.  The fact there are companies out there (black sheep arms did this one) to make that🍰🍰🍰%ers dream come true is touching.  I could give you hundreds of other examples of stuff like this, but you’re probably just better off following me on Instagram and scrolling the feed.

Velcro pads on some mechanix-type gloves:

0:43 – Ah Yup there it is… standard veteran endorsement we have all come to expect.  I know a lot of people probably think that’s EVERYTHING, and it’s a major selling proposition.  Frankly, it probably does sell a lot of units for companies who use that in their marketing.  I’m not saying these gloves are the worst product I’ve ever seen… they are FARRRRRRRRRRR from the worst. Seeing a lot of incredibly derpy products over the years which various highly credentialed veterans endorse makes that endorsement lose all meaning for me.  I’ll decide if I like something (in any industry) based on the merits of the product, not on who likes it.

1:09 – Sonofabitch Jeremy now you threw me for a loop… is this “technology” patented or is it patent pending?  You say patented yet your picture says pending.  Consider my day ruined.

2:25 – Flinchy McVneck

2:44 – Mans goes for the back to back head shots.  Monica hehehe.

The gloves are $30 over at XTECH Tactical if you’re interested in picking any up.

Tru piehitters need to get up on this:

Ugggggggh well $20 over on ebay.  If the Meat Hammer baseplates weren’t stylish enough for you to grind up your hands on a reload, maybe these will suffice? 🤔

Watch these three short videos below, and tell me they don’t go a bit overboard with the unloaded thing:

Did something happen recently involving a loaded gun from their brand?  Those videos all go out of their way to demonstrate and talk about the gun being unloaded.  Just seems odd that this would be the theme of back to back videos, when they known damn well a lot of people are buying their guns for protection and not simply to go shoot paper targets for shits and giggles at the range once a month.  If you’re NOT planning on using the gun for protection these work perfectly fine of course.  Going to your trunk… opening the gun case… finding the key to your cable lock… unlocking the cable lock… unlocking the ammo vault… loading a magazine… then loading the gun hardly works if you’re being carjacked for instance.  The bedside safe demonstration where no magazine is present and the gun is unloaded is another head scratcher…  sure that’s “fine” if you’re not planning on using it, but if you are then I don’t see how it would work either.  I like how she touched on the positioning of it though in relation to how you would grab it.  I bet a lot of people might overlook that.   The hunting one is fine if he’s throwing it in a case on his ATV and not carrying it, although I’m not sure what he means by “basically loaded”.
