This is really incredible.
H-S Precision is sells hunting and tactical rifles. Here is a scan from the back cover of their Catalog. Note who did the write-up (circled in yellow):
For the three of you who don't know who Lon Horiuchi is, he's the FBI sniper of Ruby Ridge infamy who murdered Vicki Weaver in cold blood while she was holding her baby.
I'm not sure what H-S was thinking when they decided to hire this despicable thug as a spokesperson, but they are in dire need of remedial correction for this deplorable business decision. No gun decent gun owner/buyer should give them a single dime of their business. For those wishing to contact them, here's the info:
©H-S PRECISION, INC.
1301 TURBINE DRIVE,
RAPID CITY, SD 57703
(605) 341-3006 TEL
(605) 342-8964 FAX
Or they simply misunderstood, "Hey, let's get Lon Horiuchi".
I wondered about the remote possiblity that perhaps none of the many who had to be involved with creating and setting this up knew or bothered to mention it to anyone. Sadly, that unlikely scenario is not the case.
From the AR15.com forum:
I called them and asked about the endorsement. The lady who answered said Horiuchi knows the owner and confirmed the endorsement.
With the bad economy I can only afford an OJ domestic dispute knife.
Couldn’t find the page you posted...they may have taken it down.
Did notice that they have a trophy room. Wonder if Lon Horiuchi has an official FBI photograph of Vicki Weaver.
Lon has been hiding behind the fed for years..sounds like he’s out in the civilian world now, thinking that he’s been forgotten.
Maybe they hired Lon for the promotion of their “Lady-killer” model of rifle?
I hear Sirhan Sirhan is endorsing their upcoming line of pistols.
Then, I don’t KNOW H-S Precision at all. THEY DON’T EXIST.
Be careful with these kind of jokes.....O’s thugs will perceive it as a threat.
IIRC, a younger, more precious life than that was viciously taken.
Make my next handle a McMillan. Theyre better anyway.
Their line of Charles Whitman Remington 700’s has been selling well.
If I censor myself to please the Nazis then the Nazis win. I will not do so and if it costs me my life or liberty to speak my mind then so be it.
I doubt if I would ever buy anything from H-S anyway but I am sure I would not now. I will also do everything legally and proper in my power to harm their business.
FWIW a copy of my email to this company.
Dear Sir or Madame,
I read with shock the endorsement on the back of your advertising circular by Lon Horiuchi.
Rest assured that as long as you have a man who is, in my opinion, guilty of either gross negligence or cold blooded murder in the death of Vicki Weaver as a spokesperson for your products I will never, every patronize your company.
Mr. Horiuchi typifies everything thats wrong with Law Enforcement today. He is responsible for the death of an innocent woman and only escaped prosecution by the State of Idaho by claiming the
sovereign immunity. To date he has not shown one shred of remorse for his role in what many of us in the firearms community consider a case of government sponsored murder.
Please rethink your decision to use him.
Let us know if you get a reply as a followup.
How do we do the bang-list thingy?
If banglist is in the keywords, Joe B. will pick up on it and ping the faithful.
Have you seen the limited edition with the James Earl Ray scope?
