So, I've been on a hiatus for a while. The major renovation at work continues apace. Which means lots of OT and lots of long days. Which means not so much writing. And as previously discussed the new gig has a bit more stringent social media policy so therefor online customer shaming isn't as easy.
I've got a couple of quasi drafts drawn up for the upcoming weeks concerning assorted books you ought to read before the coming collapse and how yes, Cletus, we really are winning the culture war. Kinda.
But today, I'm gonna sorta rant, sorta eulogize a pistol that was too good for this world.
Hudson MFG has filed for bankruptcy. And it really blows. And what really blows is the reaction from the firearms community as a whole.
I guess I'm a bit sensitive seeing as how I worked through the death of Gander Mountain; but, that being said, for the population that likes to chest beat about how polite they are there sure wasn't a whole hell of a lot of sympathy for the folks at Hudson.
And it further sucks because it just reinforces the notion that the only pistol worth developing or buying anymore is a DAO Stryker fired polymer double stack gun.
Yes, the Glock is a great gun. But the design is 40 years old. Times change. Technology progresses.
Just because you're a troglodyte who dislikes anything new doesn't mean you should besmirch a company that made the first innovative pistol design this century.
I hear a lot of worries about firearms reliability behind the counter. In some ways it's funny what people will find to worry themselves half to death about.
And the rush to get a new product out the door often leads to the first consumer being beta testers.
And I don't know how to fix that. I'm just bummed that I'll never have a H9A.
And I fret for Cy and Laurie who seemed like good folks.
Perhaps KE Arms will lead a rebirth.
I hope so anyway.

No, I'm not talking about how you can cover up that gouge you made on the side of a pistol when you hit the slide instead of your sight...
