Accuracy International in the neck?

Recommended Posts

From a business standpoint...I'm sure they'd love to see the semi's off the list and see more people building and buying bolt guns.

There is a thread over at Sniper's Hide that clarifies the situation.   It appears the comments were taken out of context.  It would take more than one article written by a biased reporter to convince me that AI was Anti-Gun.

Here is one of the many threads.  I am pretty sure Tom Irwin isn't wanting to restrict Americans access to weapons considering the U.S. is likely the largest civilian consumers of his product.  I trust Accuracy International more than I do European reporters/media.  If the man says the reporter took things out of context, then I will leave it at that barring any new evidence.  In my view, Accuracy International supports Freedom Loving Warfighters across the globe and that alone impedes any impulse I have to jump on the hate wagon without compelling evidence.

Same mentality as Ronnie Barrett.  :thumbup:

He didn't "hate" Californians, when he banned his own sales to their state - he wasn't going to sell to a state with such draconian gun laws...

To be fair, Barrett stopped selling to CA gov/le to spotlight the fact that the whole point of the 2A was to ensure we the people were able to defend ourselves from that same gov/le should the need arise. Supporting warfighters doesnt always correlate to supporting freedom. Barrett made his stance on that very clear. 

Theres a good chance AI was totally misquoted.  Theres a good chance he was ambushed by the question and didnt really think his response through. Theres a good chance he thinks he believes in the right to bear arms, but through no fault of his own doesnt really have a fundamental understanding of the concept. whole thing was probably blown out of proportion but i have to admit i like seeing torches.  Sends a message.

if you read that link, you'll find that it contains a direct phonecall with Tom Irwin of AI on this matter.

From that link:

I read it. Probably true. Could also just be backpedaling from the immediate response the article got.

Being anti semi auto, or anti one thing or the other, from a world standpoint, isnt anti gun NECESSARILY.

It is ANTI freedom and anti AMERICA.

For me, that is all added up to "bye felicia"

I dont understand how people get away with so much by saying "i didnt say that" or "thats not what i meant"

I hate commies

Not like I could afford one anyways. lol. Would much rather build a bolt gun than spend tons of money for one that someone else made... unless of course it was unique like a desert tactical.

Desert Tech...yeah, I've been on one or two of those. Little pricey for me, but they were really ice shooters.
