Bad Marketing

So at SHOT Show this happened:

Their hostility was because of THIS train wreck of an interview:

The Reformation was a bit of football bat, but I LIKED what it was doing, but FA was answering a question that nobody asked, and with that you need a GOOD pitch…and they didn’t have one, and I would argue one DOES exist.

Now I will note that their new Providence is REALLY fucking cool.

Looks like a double-action revolver type action put around a Pistol Caliber Carbine. Great idea, and given that my 10-shot revolver isn’t considered some sort of “Assault Weapon” I suspect they have a good idea.

And I will note that from the “Evil” Boys at In-Range came this coverage:

Now that Volleyfire seems like a complete gimmick….but all points made in this video are good ones…..Franklin is making enemies when they don’t need to IMHO.

  1. This video would have been more informative if the background noise didn’t obscure the dialogue. Still … it seems to be an interesting design for a ‘niche’ product.

    I can’t comment too much on the Franklin Armory/InRange kerfuffle since we haven’t seen Ian and Karl’s response to the “questionable interview ethics” charges made by the Franklin Armory guy about the InRange Reformation video.

    I will say that the InRange video on the S-333 has sparked a lot more interest in it for me.

    Since I first saw it on TGC, I still think that it will show up in a Netflix/Amazon Sci-Fi show in the next six to eight months or so. It has that near future/cyberpunk aesthetic.
