Red Jacket 329 Posted July 19, 2011 Report Share Posted July 19, 2011 "Y'know, it really seems as though the people who produce the show are at least slightly anti-gun, the way they imply that Saiga-12s are some kind of mysterious animal that most citizens have no business owning; the only customers shown are there for NFA items or are completely ignorant and couldn't be trusted with a .22LR without some instruction, much less a 12-ga anything. The implication is that only specially licensed individuals have any business in the shop at all, and when some fool happens by, that's supposed to represent most of society. In the last episode, the Saiga 12 was referred to as a "combat shotgun". This is a gun that is imported specifically as a sporting arm. It is not a "combat shotgun". No anti-gun bias influencing that arbitrary choice of term, right? Maybe not, but it seems suspect. Something to think about." Yep, I picked up on that last season, selling the program is given priority over things like a pro gun theme, or common sense. Estes powered rocket launchers.... really? I bought that book at a gun show back in the 1980s, when I was still laden with more testosterone than brains. I will admit there is nothing like getting some "Black Powder face blast" on.. And to violate every rule of the Model Rocket Association...Just make sure not to pass on a shogun shell/nail fusing system on to Al Quaeda Or the Guvmint may come looking for aiding and abetting terrorists and the like Frankly, its was, and is becoming more "Jerry Springer for the low IQ gun owning crowd" (See also "BUBBA" and how the term is used to represent white, gun owning, America) than it is a hard core show dedicated to true gun enthusiasts. I think I will stick more to the "Military" channel, and its more reality based fodder, which doesn't carry some hidden "Hollywood" agenda. Though I do admit I would like to see a "Gangsta" episode, where younze all have to wear black do rags to sell a anti po po, no knock raid, front door defense system to some brother in the hood. "FO SHIZZLE SNOOP, when Homey the cop smash him big, azz ram on you front do', his azz gets capped with not twenny, not thirty, but fitty, get dat, FITTY AK's all gwin off AT ONCE!" Of course that may be selling your soul to the devil that hates you, or, perhaps thats already happened? I thought I was the only one who thinks this show is totally ridiculous.Thank God I see someone else out there who sees this travesty for what it is. The Estes rockets, the M-16 they put on the Suburban controlled with a game controller, the master key, the list goes on an on. Anyone who knows anything about real military and law enforcement weapons knows that these toys they create are for the uniformed masses. If you like the show for it's entertainment and fake drama then so be it. I can only think that this show will do for Red Jacket what it did for OCC, It will make Will rich in the short term but they will become a joke in the industry and lose all credibility in the long term. Look at OCC they are in bankruptcy and no one but no one buys their bikes anymore. We build a self contained turret with 360 traverse , 60 degree elevation , target lock and tracking and it's a TOY ? The masterkey , 3 or 4 different versions , been around since the 70's , we do a quick detach version using a Saiga . Nothing earth shattering but it's a nice bit of machining . But since we did it , it's a TOY ? We put together a launching unit that will put 15 rocket's inside a 25 yrd circle , each with enough concussive force to put you on your ass using components and construction methods in a way that keep it from putting everyone who touches it in jail and it's a TOY ? Well , ok , maybe that one , but it's a damn cool toy that damn well did it's job . We build solid firearms and we back them up . We've been doing this for over 10 years and will continue to do so . How that's going to destroy our credibility I don't know , guess I'm not the marketing genius you are . If you don't like the show , whatever , there's enough copycat's in the works that I'm sure you'll find one with a bland enough crew that you wont have to worry about "drama" .
