yet another news report about the world's greatest gun salesman: Barack Obama
ugh...I should have guessed it would be blue ridge.
I certainly wont be giving him any more of my business, thats for sure. As a matter of fact, I'm going to be writing him and telling him so. Asshole.
Just sent him this email:
fucking pwnage. good job pilot.
What a douche...
Sent a nastygram.
I wouldn't have mentioned the race angle. I'm sure we all, and he as well, know it's there, but bringing it up will only server to put him on the defensive and be less receptive to whatever else you say.
blue ridge sucks. i called before i drove over an hour to go down there and upon getting there and shooting on my lane for 10 minutes they came in and informed me that they FORGOT they scheduled range time for another group and that we had to leave but they would give us a free hour (woopdy fucking doo) of range time.
I already got a response:
And my response back. I have no problem being cordial to them (though I'd like to lay into them for being so fucked up) but want them to know my feelings. I also sent the video to the guy that heads up my local IDPA shoots and asked him to distribute it to all the shooters as there are a lot that come from NoVA.
How much does blue ridge charge per hour? I never been there, because they were more expensive than NRA. And I think you had to pay $25 per year as an initiation fee or some shit like that?
Refresh my memory please.
Agreed, it was probably not the best thing, but its the first thing that stood out in my head when I saw the video. Its about the only thing that can override all other sensible decisions for many people of all races.
I agree, and I'm sure it played at least a huge role in his decision.
i never had to because i was already with a member. i don't know about NRA the only chance i had to go there they were closed.

shit, glad i posted this. and glad it's not a repost
i just wanted to say that it's bullshit, how he thought the camera's weren't rolling. you can see that the mic was still being held up for audio...
what a fuckin idiot.
in this thread:
there's an interesting take on it. a guy that used to work there posted it up.
I got their form reply and replied as follows:
If you believe in everyone's right to own and carry firearms, you
should not have voted for the man most likely to infringe upon that
right, and who will appoint federal judges across the United States
who will infringe that right, and who will direct his federal agencies
(ATF, FBI) to restrict that right.
Your excuse is like a Catholic priest admitting he supports abortion,
but only privately.
I will excercise my First Amendment rights and tell my shooting
friends not to support your business.
And then this back from them:
You can, of course, believe what you would like. We do not believe that there will be the interest or support to ban gun rights in the coming years. It's a shame we all have to think alike or not do business.
I posted this on gunboards as well. I have a feeling this free publicity is going to backfire hugely.
i think so, too.
Just posted on the Old Dominion section of glocktalk, they'll probably go ape shit
yeah, check out the thread on ocdo, it's posted in the virginia section by a guy who used to work there
yeah he seems to be on the fence
