Goodbye Para—The Death of a Brand and a Belated Review

I’ve got mixed emotions about the way corporate conglomerates gobble up smaller companies. While I understand (and will defend) American capitalism, growth almost always comes with sacrifices of some sort.

In the gun industry, what’s sacrificed is the human touch. I was visiting a high-end 1911 maker last week, for example, that still has one smith make one gun, start to finish. The smith stamps his initials in the steel, and if it ever comes back with problems that same smith is held accountable. It is brilliant. It is also not sustainable on any scale.

Hopefully the quality doesn't go south, like it did with Marlin.

If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
