- Not in the PRM.
My point was that WE who were not on the call do not know if he even had the opportunity to speak with anyone corporately, or if he was just stonewalled. My understanding of the call to the store is that he was simply told that there was nothing that they could do and that he would need to call corporate.
As to the rights of a million+ gun owners being more important that one small business owner's welfare....that will make for an interesting discussion when I get back from lunch...
And OUR collective point here is that whatever the outcome was of the phone calls to BPS, at NO time should he have "dropped a dime" in effort to halt BPS's sale of Glocks et al. BPS most likely would have fought this on their own and possibly won, given their resources and the flimsy AG "regs".
Moreover, as others have pointed out on this thread, BPS really isn't direct competition for Ted, as his prices are lower on almost everything and most of us enjoy going to our local/regular gun store and shooting the breeze with folks we like.
And BTW, I own a small business that competes with a HUGE retailer every day, so I feel like I'm qualified to speak on this topic. You don't see me ratting out (company's name withheld) when they price a TV below MAP and cut my balls off. It's part of doing business in the free market.
