No kidding. I called about how much it would cost to shorten a barrel to SBS length. I said I had the proper paperwork and tax stamp. [The company is located in a state that allows all NFA items].

He says: "We provide services to hunters around here, not murderers."

I mentioned the purpose of the Second Amendment, the legality of self-defense, suggested he read Scalia's Heller opinion, and ended the call.

#@%* Fudd!

Are Fudds really that clueless? Have you had a similar experience? What did (or would) you say?

Fudds are a continuing "issue" and many seem to have bought into the media bullshit. How do you deal with them (if at all)?

Agreed. Time to boycott.

Name the place

Why would someone post a story like this and not give the name for people to avoid giving their money to them?

This is DEFINATELY a time to give a name.  This ain't about a refund or delay, this sounds like an attack on the values that pay his salary.  If you hate any gun get the fuck out of the gun business.

By naming them so the rest of us can avoid using their services and they learn by losing business.
Link Posted: 9/5/2008 11:35:18 PM EDT
You got called a fucking murderer and you are reluctant to name them?  Shit, I guess I just won't buy any more shotgun parts then out of spite and general principle.

Anyone who says something like that ought to be outed immediately.
That is a terrible fucking thing to insinuate accuse.

Wow!!!

In my opinion, I can understand your reasons for not wanting to name the company.

I can also understand why everyone wants to know the name of the company as well.

If it happened to me, I would probably call again to talk to a supervisor.

For them not to do work on an NFA is understandable, but for them to call you a murderer is DEFAMATION.

If the company's policy matches up to what the customer service rep said the first time, I think it would be acceptable to come clean on the company.

I sure would not want to give that company any of my hard earned dollars. Just to spite those bastards, I would probably get the barrel cut down and mail a picture to them.

Do what you think is right. BTW, I'm so glad it's not Mossberg or I would be pissed.

On One hand...having the company rep/owner/whoever insinuate that you (and by extension, ANYONE) who owns an SBR/SBS is a murderer is DEFINITLY worthy of being outed, and Zumbo'ed by the membership....

HOWEVER..with the shit going on right now with the Lawsuit by a certain supressor manufacturer against an ARFcommer..i cant say I blame him for NOT naming names...at least until the suit is settled one way or another.. How Screwed are we if it DOES get to the point that a Customer Service/Quality control complaint becomed fodder for a lawsuit???

How the hell can they sue him for just repeating their stance on a certain matter?  As long as he isn't falsely advertising their products as defective what can they do?
