It's Kind of Sad

It's kinda sad watching Slidefire sink into the sunset.  Like many of you (I assume) I've been getting their "going out of business sale" emails for the last few weeks.  It seems I've been getting their ads every other day (? I think) for a few weeks and it has just been a continuing dribble of sad news.

I don't own a bump-stock.  Never wanted one.  Never cared about them.  I'm just sad to see a small business killed by the stupidity that flared into existence over banning bump stocks.  One crime in the history of the world has used a bump-stock and because of that we need to ban them and drive some entrepreneur's dream into the dirt.  Slidefire is not responsible.  Neither the owner, the company nor the devices are responsible.  Only the moron pulling the trigger is responsible.  

Bump-stocks were, if you're unaware, outlawed in the Florida RINO Gun Control Act of 2018, passed within days of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.   Which also didn't involve a bump stock.

At the very top of the web site, it says:

ALL SALES FINAL – On Sunday, May 20, 2018 at midnight CDT, Slide Fire will cease taking orders for its products and shut down its website.  Orders placed prior to May 20th, 2018 will all be processed and shipped.  We thank you for your support.
Everybody thinks bump-stocks on ARs or AKs.  They also make a nifty little kit for "America's littler rifle", the Ruger 10/22.  

Here's wishing them luck in whatever direction they choose.


  1. I'd never even heard of a "bump stock" until the unfortunate incidents happened.

    I'm like you; I'd don't think I'd ever buy one, but I feel for the guy.

  2. Ban bump stocks and gun owners obey; attempt to register guns in Connecticut and gun owners disobey. What ban would wobble right in the middle, and get half of gun owners to disobey and the other half to snitch on them?

  3. What ban would get 10% of gun owners to disobey, and 90% of gun owners to put the 10% in prison? How about a ban on 20 round rifle magazines which leaves lower-count magazines for hunting rifles and pistols untouched? A ban on possessing any guns if you're legitimately taking legally proscribed narcotics for your chronic pain, or if you've had contact with any kind of mental health services in the last five years? Registering each transfer of ammunition or components, with no exemptions? Then the remaining gun owners could be subdivided again and again.
