    what do you think of this?

    Cop this. Found this on a bookface page. Apparently from their new catalogue
    Humping and fisting threw us under the bus and almost helped make sure the real ones got screwed and then have the stones to market this.
    Un bloody believable.

    Mate Fishing and Fleece lost me a while back too. There's a much better and friendlier franchise around 7 km north of us. My shout for coffee soon?

    I thought the S&W on page 152 was a bit more hypocritical.

    He might be just pissed at them for using social media to sell guns after using social media to beat their chest about doing the "right thing" and selling out gun owners.

    Haven't spent a cent in there since they chucked us under the bus, and I'll be that way till I die.

    Who is selling on social media ? That's a catalog, I assume no one is shopping at GC or any other gun shop as most of the large ones are having meetings with the police regarding the second tranche of firearms legislation along with colfo?
    Most owners of H&f stores, (they are all individually owned) probably wishes the CEO had said nothing, I am sure they are missing your sales but probably not.

    And divided we fall. I was disappointed at H&Fs chief execs comments in March and have not felt like shopping there since, but I wonder...

    I wonder if the H&F fracture should necessarily be a permanent one, like others who have permanently fallen out with NZDA, others who won't set foot in GC and others who won't talk to so and so. Division is the chief weakness of the NZ Firearms "community" and so the ones with an anti-gun agenda will happily be able to keep chipping away. What I'm saying is getting a group of stores on board behind "fair and reasonable" is WORTH MORE than making an example of it through hurting its franchisees.

    I suppose it comes down to whether H&F is saying something more reasonable these days? Haven't heard any retractions, but then again media have had some reporting bias of late.

    What do I think of it? It's pretty cheap as far as air rifles go, if it's any good. But Ruger triggers are shit. It's probably as good as their 10/22LR

    Whangarei and all. We have 2x H+F. There's a guy up in Kaikohe but he's just a guy who often has lots.
    Anything out of the ordinary and you pretty much have to order it in.
