    You couldn’t give me a glock. I have nothing against striker fired guns in general, but glock perfection feels like a brick. Just like the P365; the factory grip module is horrible, but throw a Wilson Combat grip module, the long slide and barrell on, and it’s a completely different gun.

    In case you’re wondering, my edc is a WC X9
    Wilsons are amazing. At least their own guns and not just the copies. But i want 45 and anything over 2 grand is a bit much atm.

    Well i'll be damned. Ain't that some bull right there. Can't hide anything anymore, as it should be. People aren't stupid, sometimes.

    I'm never bought into the claim that Springfield and RRA directly contributed to anti-gun politicians.

    There has to be more to this story than is being reported.

    Seriously, why would an firearms manufacturer donate to a politician's campaign that would directly threaten their business?!?

    It's the Illinois Firearms Manufacturing Association (IFMA) that's the culprit here!

    Pinning that on SA and RRA is like claiming you are responsible for a crime committed by someone you sold a gun to!

    And honestly, this is Illinois we are talking about here! Is there a pro-gun politician to be found anywhere in that state?!?

    Lastly, despite all the claims that this "scandal" would "harm" Springfield Arms, the company has been doing extremely well ever since which shows there's little credibility to the claims...

    Look at RRA’s response after the news broke:


    And Springfield’s.


    Either way, neither of those companies seemed to understand where, for decades, the money was going or what is was supporting.

    Now, I also never owned one of their products prior to this information becoming available. The only innovative product I saw was the XD line, but I’ve never figured out if that was an HS design or a Springfield design.

    Maybe if Mad John ran for office... :)

    I can see the campaign poster now. You just know it would be him sitting on his front stoop with a transferable AK-47.

    That a really solid rebuttal. And i feel ya, there is two sides to every story. So until someone has solid proof its hearsay. Grandpa always told me not to assume, because it makes a ass out of you and me.

    But they did blatantly lie. That much is very clear. Because then there wouldn't need to be clarification or a apology. So its kinda a mess that no one seems to have a real answer for.
