(from TFB, in part)
They say there’s a sucker born every minute. No where does this seem to be more true than in the firearms industry. Poorly thought of add-ons, holsters, ammunition design, etc.
I remember Col. Cooper being asked (with regard to the latest variant of some pistol, which certainly was not necessary), “Jeff, what’s it for? To sell, of course!” was his reply.
I’m certain you can think of many others, as well as selections of the ‘good’ variety that didn’t get marketed properly and went away.
Such is the nature of business…
