    Not a fan of the man or his shops but have to admit he always comes across well with the media. Still have a recoding of the TV interview when he opened his Welle shop and he was pretty damn good. Said all the right things despite the interviewer baiting like mad.

    The only criminal activity associated with an AR-15 in NZ is those prices.
    It also raises a point of difference between ourselves and the US in that you can pick up an AR for under $500 in the states. Over here you are looking at a couple of grand. Not the most "accessible" firearm around.

    I can't figure out why GC are showing an E Cat , then advertise a 5 round mag for easy reloading. Unless the Herald have made up the gfx.

    Maybe they forgot the pimp safe. Can't see the hype over a shitty counterfeit AR. No mention of the super cheap SKS's GC are still trying to get rid of. lol.
