So the Editor if Recoil Magazine issued an Apology. I’m not going to post his bullshit, but it was basically him saying “I’m sorry you were offended.” Not that he was sorry he made an error in saying it… just sorry that you took it to be offensive. That’s not an apology. That’s what I say when what I really want to say is “Fuck you, and fuck off.”
George Bush said this to China when a Chinese Fighter ran into one of our P3 Orion’s and caused it to crash land… China demanded an apology and Bush basically said “We’re sorry your fighter pilot ran into our plane.” Again, Bush basically gave China the middle finger.
So with Recoil giving us the Middle Finger, it’s time to return the favor to them.
Recoil is a magazine. Magazines make their money not by selling the rag – that just covers costs – but by selling Advertising.
Instead of contacting Recoil Magazine, we contact those that have been advertising in the magazine:
Magpul, Panteo, Bravo Company.
We need to contact these guys and request that they stand up for Civilian Gun Owners and withdraw all their advertising from Recoil.
Recoil needs to die on the vine. It was a shallow rag at best with no actual content and these companies advertising with them can do better in other venues.
In fact, ask them to Advertise instead with Armed American Radio and Mark Walters will give them a smoking good deal if they Jump Ship over to AAR Advertising.
I’m still pissed at Recoil… They had a good idea at a nice high end magazine, but really failed at not hiring actual Gun Guys to edit and write for them. This is a fatal flaw that needs to be shoved right through the heart.
It is possible to save Recoil. The Layout Artists are good, but the writers and editors need to be replaced to the person. Especially JT, the moron who started this mess. When Recoil gets a new Staff, it could become one of the best magazines out there.
But to be honest, I don’t see this happening.
What’s sad though is all the good magazines that have gone away… I miss OMNI Magazine. *sigh*
