quotes

“The people of the various provinces are strictly forbidden to have in their possession any swords, short swords, bows, spears, firearms, or other types of arms. The possession of unnecessary implements makes difficult the collection of taxes and dues and tends to foment uprisings.”
by Toyotomi Hideyoshi

earn yourself some free swag

As previously mentioned, I will unfortunately not be attending SHOT Show this year… however, as a recent anonymous coward reminded me, one of my Eastern Tennessee Monster Hunter International patches is still up for grabs for those lucky folks who are going.  What do you have to do to earn this patch?  Simple: 

To all you lucky bastards going to SHOT Show this year, take heed!  I […]

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 […]

not a hard lesson to learn

Brownells has always struck me as something of an old-fashioned (in a very good way) company, so it amuses me that they seem to have a firmer grasp on the treacherous beast that is "the Internet" than the self-proclaimed "internet media professional", Paul Helinski (who cannot even seem to run a Twitter account), and his chauvinistic company, GunsAmerica. From a recent WebBench email from the former company, in […]

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 […]

paul helinski just does not know when to quit

Paul Helinski, president of GunsAmerica, simply does not understand the Internet or how it works.  This profound ignorance is rather surprising in this day and age, especially since he claims to have been using the “network of tubes” for the past 15 years or so, but being the gracious and generous person I am, I took it upon myself to try to correct this oversight yesterday

Apparently, I […]

now witness the firepower of this fully operational intertube

Since everyone’s favorite company president, Paul Helinski, was having such a hard time comprehending the nature of the internet and how exactly it works, I thought I would take a moment and give him some easy-to-understand, graphical pointers. 

First, run a Google search for “gunsamerica”.  If you do it sometime near the time of this post’s writing, check out return number seven. 

Yup, that would be […]

paul helinski of gunsamerica fails at the internet

So apparently there is this site called GunsAmerica… frankly, I have never heard of it, and after reading the comments and opinions of a certain Paul Helinski (who feels quite comfortable speaking for the site as a whole), I am going to go on remaining blissfully ignorant of it (hence the lack of a link).  Personally, I stick to GunBroker.com for any information I need pertaining to the buying and selling of firearms.  […]
