I moderate comments older than 3 days. The problem with blogger is that they don't associate those moderated comments with the post very well. So I don't know WHERE this comment is now.
Anyway, it was spam, and I allowed it, in order to have THIS blog fodder.
He was essential plugging Front Sight. It has "the biggest firearm training facility in the country."
Ok, interesting. I've considered going to one of the big training facilities. Cooper's legacy at Gunsite, Thunder Ranch, Blackwater like the bloggers did, or Rob Pincus' thing at ICE.
The problem with Front Sight is that they've been in the news lately. There has been litigation against them. Class action suit and judgments against them. Some receivership issues. Rumors of LRonHubbardian stuff in the classes. It all seems to have an off-odor hanging around any mention of the place.
I don't know enough about the details, and what is true or not, but the word around the watercooler makes me feel a little hinky about them. They may be perfectly fine and innocent, but it doesn't take much to make me feel I could look elsewhere. One way is to have all this bad press and successful big lawsuits turn up in google searches
Another way is to spam my comments with commercials!
I'd have put this in my comments area next to theirs if I could only find the post.
Now it could be just a happy customer and a big fan of Front Sight posted the promotional copy. If true, that doesn't make me any happier.
But, my biggest criteria right now for one of these major training evolutions that I might sign up for is, 'Is it good?' and 'Is it close?' So that leaves ICE and Blackwater at the top of the list.
How hard is it to make a gun? - Not very. They're made in prisons: But by all means, feel free to freak out over 3D printed guns. As the saying goes, the Lord truly loves Stupid Peopl...
