Well this one just managed to sneak right up on me, but apparently it’s time for the annual NRA Convention again. And while I’m not going, those of you who are, might I make a request?

Drop by the HS Precision booth, and ask about their choice of “celebrity” endorsements. I mean for fuck’s sake, even if you’re a “Yay government they do no wrong!” jackboot cheerleader, and you don’t consider Lon Horiuchi a murderer excused by federal fiat when justice came looking for him, then at the very least he’s a spectacularly bad shot.

What sane company would use either of those options to endorse their product?

Oh wait. HS Precision isn’t sane.

So yeah, if you’re going to the NRA Convention, please drop by the HS Precision booth and find out if they’ve perchance seen the error of their ways. But I wouldn’t bet on a friendly response.

    Not going to let that die, eh? Good! Any help I get in making sure they *never* get any of my business is a good thing.

    Yep, HSP lost my business permanently with those actions and–more to the point–that attitude. Good on you for keeping people aware.

    I’m surprised they keep pissing away money for booth space.

    I hope someone takes pictures.

    I didn’t step into their booth (I was afraid their brand of stupid was catching), but I did notice that it was a pretty lonely place to be.

    I did remark to my friends about why they were pretty empty, concluding with a “screw those guys.” The group agreed.

    They could make the best stocks on the planet… I don’t really care, not with management stupidity like that.

    I went by the HS booth on Friday around 11am and no one was there. The traffic was so thick that Mrs. Crucis and I had difficulty maneuvering through the crowd. I think they wasted their time and money coming to the convention.

    7 passes over three days, not a soul in the booth other than the two guys…
