That forum becomes less and less interesting.

I have been a pretty vocal critic of the AAC "Lifestyle" marketing, but I've also acknowledged how successful they've been at it, and that they've had good products to back it up with. The fact that the other thread was started by a wannabe competitor is humorous.

Anyone click on the link in his sigline and notice his attempt at following in the footsteps of the very company he lambastes?

IIRC, the two owners are brothers who are both snipers with the Army or NG?

Or so they claim.... they also threatened to shoot people when they told us to come up for a visit.

AND

That anyone that wears pink and is a gun lover is a homo and most likely a liberal.

I think a head scan is in order for both of them.

I saw that thread over there and instantly thought he was an idiot. He obviously doesn't know a thing about marketing. Who would trash one of the best suppressor companies with one of te best marketing campaigns on one the biggest shooting forums about reps wearing pink shirts? Just shows the only thing people can say negative about AAC is there taste in clothing at one event.

There aren't too many people in this world that I genuinely "feel bad" for, but GreenO is an exception. He is bi-polar or something - he has real issues controlling his behavior.

these are the bigoted, ignorant, engineer/scientist/manufacturer/secret squirrel wannabees who engraved "Front Toward Arabs" on their silencer end-caps.

the fact that they can even use computers amazes me.

the amount of misinformation, nonsense, and stupidity that he and his brother have written on internet discussion forums is mind boggling.

You mean these gems?

I also know I need to take a break from studying when I look at the opening on the end cap and only see the molecular structure of cyclohexane.

GreenO's a tosser, and it sounds like his brother is too. He was giving me s--t a while back. Cory and David are great guys. Rachel's great too. Haters gonna hate.
