    In an apparent attempt at financial suicide it appears the H.S. precision firearms has loaded their new catalog with testimonials and an endorsement by none other than the infamous Lon Horiuchi. Horiuchi, for those who don’t remember is the FBI sniper credited with killing Vicki Weaver while she held her youngest child in her arms at Ruby Ridge. It is also rumored that Horiuchi was the person who fired the first shot at WACO and was responsible for killing several unarmed Branch Davidians who were blinded by smoke and CS gas and trying to surrender.

    It appears that this company is about to get Dixie Chicked

    Dear Lord, this cannot possibly turn out well.

    Real tasteful, H-S Precision. That's just classy.

    Holy Moly!

    Normally I'm not one to rush to judgment on anything. But Good God!



    How on earth any person in the long range precision shooting community wouldn't see the name Lon Horiuchi and immediately associate it with either murder or incompetence is beyond me.


    Wow. Who in that marketing department approved this one? I've heard the PR guys say, "any PR is good PR" before, but I don't think they had this in mind.

    Kind of like having OJ Simpson endorsing your golf gloves or steak knives, isn't it?

    Just sent this to H-S Precision



    I'm very interested to see if they reply, and if they do, what they have to say. Will definitely update when/if they write back.

    depends on what community in one the school of thought he followed the rules of engagement his bosses laid out. they tried to cover up and got letters of reprimand then promoted.

    I wonder exactly what those at HS Precision think is Mr Horiuchi's claim to star appeal in the shooting world out of all the accomplished rifleman around.

    Their e-mail address is: info@hsprecision.com

    Write and tell them what you think about them having a MURDERER endorsing their products. Regardless of what you think of Randy Weaver, Horiuchi murdered Vicky Weaver, plain and simple. Then Butch Reno and Bill Clinton declined to indict the thug.

    I did, and I told them that all of my new rifles will have McMillan stocks and Krieger or Lilja barrels on them.

    I guess you gotta suck up in order to get the FBI gravy... er, contract. Perhaps this is another case of a company that figures since they've got the big government contract now, they don't have to worry about us little people.

    Now I guess I need to contact Remington and tell them that as long as they use HS Precision stocks on (some of) their rifles, I am boycotting them and will urge everyone I know to do the same.

    Vote with your dollars, people, and tell HS Precision about it!

    !!!Danger Parody Warning!!!
    In related news, David "Son of Sam" Berkowitz has signed a lucrative endorsement deal with Charter Arms, while DC gunman John Muhammed will represent Bushmaster. In a move some have compared to car company commercials featuring dead performers, gunmakers Mauser and Remington are set to introduce commercials for their products featuring deceased SS officer Aamon "Schindler's List" Goethe and the deceased assassin of civil rights leader Medgar Evers, Byron de la Beckwith respectively. Through the miracle of CGI, the two will be seen shooting concentration camp inmates and Medgar Evers with the companys' current products. Gun makers Anschutz and Weatherby are said to be in a bidding war for the likeness of James Earl Ray, assassin of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    I believe I knew him in Korea. If so, I can easily believe that he INTENTIONALLY shot a woman holding a baby and LIKED it.

    I don't believe it. No one can possibly that stupid.


    Wouldn't it just really suck if no one in marketing knew who he was, and then no one in the company decided to proofread the advertisement before it went to press.

    Wow. Well, America got to read it, and our proofreading is expensive.

    Kinda like they don't give a crap because they are selling all their stuff to the government. They must see a hell of a market now that BHO has hired all the old Clintonistas to run the government.

    Gun owners have the memory of a crack baby. Anyone remember the S&W flap? How about Bill Ruger being THE AUTHOR OF THE LAST AWB?

    Sadly gun owners really don't care about the big picture, just themselves. Look at our last election.:(:(:(
