Pushing A LaRue Rifle Out Of An Airplane And More Tomfoolery

Doing things just to do them.

That rifle setup is worth in the ballpark of $6000-$7000 with the optic and mount haha.  At least they packed it well… that was a hard fall and bounce.

That drone looks like a DJI Inspire One too which I see goes for $2900, yikes.  You’d think they just could have bought a cheap drone off Amazon and saved some money.  Oh well LaRue probably makes half a million dollars off ARFCOM sales alone in a single day anyway.  When I used to go on there lots back in the day, people loved everything made by that company.

Larue-TacticalThoughts?  Does the LaRue Kool-Aid taste ever so sweet?

So much for babying my little hubsan 4x. lol Inconceivable to me that anyone would blast something that expensive out of the sky for marketing value.

Think how much money they earn from people seeing the ad and going “Hey, that’s durable/fits my needs. Imma buy that.”? Sacrifice one rifle to sell hundreds. It isn’t a bad deal.

$3,370 for an AR-10, fuuuuck you!

Yeah, the price is pretty bad for a LR308 platform, but the LMT LM308SS is beyond ridiculous at $5200.

That LaRue koolaid is mighty sweet! Of course a ballcap and a scope *mount* are the only LaRue things I can afford LOL

Man barfcom AND Larue are both insanely overrated. I haven’t used a Larue anything in 6 years save for one rail. By 2005 standards not bad but today it is morbid obese.

I still like riff sticker KAC did “God bless our soldiers….especially all of them”.

bwahaha I’m in same boat, I have their quad rail I got on a *stupid* obama-panic-expensive rifle I bought in 2008 (this was in SoCal, where AR’s were still veryyyy much new in terms of the bullet button and increasing awareness of them actually being obtainable and legal). The thing’s a heavy beast.

And you know that some idiot is going to thrown some skyward 5.56 rounds at anything that flying. Where will those rounds land, what will they hit? LaRue was irresponsible with this ad.

I’m glad we have all these operators prepping for the upcoming war against the machines.

That slick catching of the ejected round was pure operator business. So non-chalant.

So crappy production value, crappy end logo, throwing a rifle out of a helicopter in mounds of packaging as well as a pelican case, crappy drone shots, crappy safety procedures, all in a concept that was done by SilencerCo a year ago….

This video could have been executed much better.

1/10, would not troll internet people with.

LaRue has been slipping the past couple years they struggle to keep with the quickly changing market place and are a very small operation compared to companies like KAC
I love their ideas but the execution takes forever and this recent video shows how out of touch they have become I am unsure why they continue to be stubborn other than the LaRue family / company stopped caring about the typical users at least 10 years ago when they got enough govt contracts to choke a horse.

I live about 10 min from the main facility and have been there plenty of times while impressive the people in charge are VERY set in their ways and see no reason to change that. As long as they are happy with that model let them be.

I own many of their products but see no reason they need to keep increase price and perpetuating odd behavior on places like AR15.com
They need to play catch up so their rifles and quality don’t continue to get overlooked by the civilian market.
Rant over

Did they just drop one of our rifles out of airplane in a spray painted black tool box.

Fired.

Next time those half wits better pay spider man to jump out of a helicopter into a row boat and go dynamic underwater.

We love ARFCOM – where else can you find so many smart people to make us look credible and so many fucktards to buy our shit at ripoff prices like KAC and LWRC – you can’t.

Hate us cause Uranus

And BTW, notice how captain sanders doesn’t have a beard where his cheek weld?

You fucktards are doing it wrong, and for free.

That Nukka is paid out to be played out.

Wishing Well!
