An open letter to all gun companies

| October 6, 2010

Dear gun companies,

You are in the business of selling high-priced utility items (aka “appliances”). As such, you will be held to the same standards as everyone else who sells appliances. You are not special. You will adapt or die.

As such, I will no longer be doing business with any gun company which does not have either an email address or web contact form on their website. I do not accept this from people from whom I buy TV’s, food processors, laptops, etc., so I will not accept it from you.

This means that I will not be doing business with:

  • Kimber
  • Glock
  • Taurus
  • Colt
  • Savage Arms
  • Weatherby
  • Sig Sauer
  • Remington
  • (and likely others) until this situation is remedied.

This means that I will be willing to do business with:

  • Springfield Armory
  • Kahr
  • Bersa
  • Smith and Wesson
  • CZ / Dan Wesson
  • Ruger
  • Thompson Center
  • STI
  • (And likely others, I’m soliciting suggestions)

What started this whole thing is behind the cut… (more…)

Why does…

My new video card have a sticker with a large-breasted narrow waisted computer generated woman on it? Are these the only chicks gaming wankers get? Further, it’s not like you see it – it’s inside the computer!
