Somebody's usually being a douche here, that's for sure. I've had a continuing conversation w/ Kirk about my business, and I've had no run ins w/ him over it. I don't sell here, and I don't ship, so I'm not pimping my business - I'm pointing out that I do have a financial relationship with the products that I am recommending, which is called being honest.Showing off the guns that you buy for yourself and your family is one thing. Your collection is enviable.
Bragging about buying guns and accessories that you intend to sell for profit while quietly trying to advertise your own company for free by pointing out that you're a vendor for two shitbird companies that stopped posting on the forum because they weren't allowed to pimp their businesses for free anymore once the new owners took over is entirely different. That's called being a douche.
And it is pretty enjoyable to tell the wife when she gets home that I've only bought $2k of guns today - apparently it's a crime to share that enjoyment.
