    Ah, the fun of history.

    Troy just hired...and is defending...Lon Horiuchi's "sniper buddy" Dale Monroe. They were partnered up for Ruby Ridge, and while Lon killed Randy Weaver's wife (while she was holding a deadly assault baby, granted) with a carefully targeted shot, Dale said on camera that he was prepared to take the same shot at the same time.

    Ah, Troy, my dollars will be going to a company that does not employ the very example of jackbooted thugs...

    Much like our "friends" at HS Precision who hired Lon "Mom Holding Baby Killer" Horiuchi himself, I will not have anything to do with them.

    Actions have consequences, even if the FBI thinks otherwise.

    Hired Jody Weiss the anti gun police politician from Chicago, then promptly dropped him when their customers freaked out but they are standing by the unapologetic Ruby Ridge sniper. Unless I can come to a different understanding on this, I wont be buying from Troy.

    Glad I've never bought from Troy, been tempted to get battle mags but they are hard to justify when magpuls are on the shelf. Glad to know I can entirely nix that company.

    Not looking for anything right now, but if I was, at least I'd know where not to look.

    There is a very long thread on this on ar15.com in the industry section where they talk about this.

    What is the tone of that one??? That forum is big and does carry some weight. A boycott by them would do some financial damage to Troy.

    Troy Industries Statement - AR15.COM

    Troy statement: fires Jody Weiss (anti-2A Chicago police commissioner), doesn't apologize for hiring and keeping on Ruby Ridge sniper, who said he'd have taken the same shot his partner did (shooting an unarmed woman holding a 10 month old baby). Makes me sick. I won't go into the whole Ruby Ridge thing so as to not sidetrack (and get my own thread locked) but read about it if you haven't. Should have been handled totally differently...like Waco.

    Oh, and the responses are pretty damned good. People aren't supporting Troy and I don't see how I can either.

    Thanks for that link, only made it through two pages of comments, not a single one in support, had enough!

    After reading his statement, no Troy for me ever, and I will mention that to vendors at shows and stores.
