my, what an interesting coincidence

And regular readers know how much I love coincidences.

Yesterday afternoon, I received this comment from Robert Farago:

This morning, I received this now-deleted comment from "Daedalus":

The comment has been deleted because that black block is covering up personal information, and, by and large, I do not permit that kind of information to be posted on this site. I attempted to email "Daedalus" here and inform him […]

I am glad to see my readership values truth and honesty over hype and backstabbing.  It is interesting to note that Robert Farago has never once responded to addressed the post or its content…

It is the most-commented post on this site (with 67 comments thus far).

fair warning regarding keepandbeararms.com

Bruce W. Krafft, one of the News/Editorials reposters at KeepAndBearArms.com (links intentionally withheld), has made it repeatedly clear that "lots of content" takes priority over such trivial ethical details as copyright infringements, lies, exploitation of the pro-rights community, and abusive behavior towards other people, and, as such, he intends to continue using KeepAndBearArms.com to point traffic at The Truth About Guns. This, however, should be hardly surprising, given that […]

“the truth”, now with a helpful table of contents

When writing “the truth about the truth about guns and robert farago”, I knew the post was going to be… well… massive, and it was.  Unfortunately, there was a lot of information to cover, and putting it all in one spot seemed like the ideal situation, so there was no way around it.  However, now that it is all out there, we need a better way to reference it in the future.

Unless you are prepared for a veritable skyscraper of text (over 9,000 words) and a serious airing of grievances, you should probably go ahead and plan on skipping this post.

That disclaimer dispensed with, here is how it is. Over the past few years, Robert Farago – the editor of The Truth About Guns – has functionally leeched off of, exploited, stabbed in the back, maligned, abused, lied about, misrepresented, stolen from, and infringed upon […]

a spotter for the superlaser

A couple of rather disparate thoughts were rattling around my head for the past few days, but they did not completely congeal until I read this comment from Oliver Perry:

It was discussed, perhaps here, the notion that we are able to develop a shitstorm when something goes wrong, but the author could not recall an atta boy resulting in a built business.

I currently carry in a crossbreed, but […]

gunsamerica fails at marketing

Oh, for Heaven’s sake…

A little over a week ago, Paul Helinski of GunsAmerica decided to pull out all the stops and be a complete dick about small-time webloggers (who he referred to as "nobodies") daring to attend the NSSF’s SHOT Show, and then he doubled down on his dickery and dig himself even deeper into his hole. In the interim, I tried to show Paul […]

paul helinski, meet the internet

By now, you are probably well aware of the difficulties Paul Helinski, the president (?) of GunsAmerica and current sufferer of faragosis, is having comprehending how the internet works.

Well, just over two days ago, I issued the following challenge to my readers:

To all you lucky bastards going to SHOT Show this year, take heed! I have a few Eastern TN Monster […]
