    Offtopic, but your RSS feed doesn’t appear to be updating today (on Bloglines at least).

  2. Cam makes some great faces.

    I’ve not finished it yet, but that man (Russ) is as crooked as they get. Cam was handing him his ass on a plate.

    All it is is a ploy for Russ Ford to make money while the cost of ammunition soars beyond the reach of you and me.

    How the f*(& can Sierra make bullets and ship them to Silver State Armory who make the brass and get the numbers to line up? You can’t, not without retooling the entire process to read and discard the wrong case / bullet.

    Yeah, those codes on boxes and cans are used for inventory management. They aren’t meant to be recoverable after you hurl them at 1,000 ft/sec. I can’t believe Russ Ford doesn’t know the difference.

    Cam should have asked him to give up the patent “for the public good.” I’d like to see his response.

    Russ Ford’s an idiot. Period. Robb hit it right on the nose that Ford’s in it to make himself a fortune at the expense of the common folk, like you and me. I wonder if he’s got a serial number on the top of his head? Maybe it reads “666.”

    Good Lord! Isn’t there a used car dealership somewhere that he should be working at?
