I like him. I liked what he did here. Good dude.

I own some of his products and frequent his site often when I am in the market for something.

He is out there doing it for America. His quality is excellent. He isn't selling BS chicom/ Taiwanese made crap or dipping into rebranded coffee.

There are so many other factors in play. I can't believe you're stuck on this "don't give anything away" angle.

Just so we are clear, IDGAF if you work in retail or outhouses.  Your opinion is yours, have at it.  Your posting of facts is a crock of shit right now.  Enjoy your Thanksgiving.

Mark LaRue makes great products and its fun to watch him post, even when you are the recipient of his wit.  If you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen.  LaRue has done a lot of good things while you were selling widgets.

What a weird viewpoint.  

Does devaluing by 1 percent matter if your actions increase your overall sales by 1000 percent?

I purchased 2 full rifles from larue and countless mount.  Never would have happened if I hadn’t followed them due to the monthly giveaway.

Your posting style is hilarious.  Someone pointed it out in another thread and now I see it wherever you post.  Like your “Good!” in the power Ranger suicide post.  Like the kid in the back of class that shoots spitballs during class.

I found him much more pleasant in the earlier days when his business was sort of new and innovative. Since then he has made many fine products, which years ago were a nice alternative to that shit from ARMS and other junk metal suppliers.  As his business got bigger maybe he got a bit arrogant, anyhow doesnt change the fact that he innovated many new designs and products that likely made the AR a better platform for add ons.  I mean do people buy off him because his products are good or because they are looking for a new friend? If its a former and not the later...all is good

I don't rate Christmas dillos anymore.
I did buy, and still have, his LED light way back when it came out, so I estimate, that should entitle me to lifetime Christmas dillos.

Every one of my optics is in a LaRue mount.

When I bought my 1st LaRue mount back in 2003?, I called them direct, and Mark answered the phone.

Me: I want to buy a Aimpoint mount
Mark: Is your name Dick Swan?

Yeah my experience as well, called him, spoke to him on the phone a few times back then. Those days he was eager for business.  You likely recall his website with the small add on it for troops.
