A Phrase For The Ages

Tam at View From The Porch alerts us to a new and improbably named weapon called the “Elite Tactical Advantage Devastator Shotgun” and then comments as follows:

“We have officially crossed the mall ninja marketing buzzword event horizon.”

That’s some of the wisest snark to have ever been written in the English language.  It should be preserved in written tomes and archived in the Smithsonian. It should be stored in time capsules and beamed into space. It should be carved in marble. I consider it the antidote to tacti-cool marketing drivel.

    “Using the infamous “North Hollywood Shoot out” as a model, we answered a question that up to that point no one had asked, “What do we do when assailants are armored from head to toe, armed with overwhelming firepower”
    Well neck to toe anyway. They were wearing ski masks for goodness sake…uhm, shoot them in the head? Where were the swat snipers?
    So, the bad guys were shooting AKs, with an effective range of 300 yards, so google tells me. Shotgun, maybe 40 or 50 yards. I’d rather have Belle’s Tokorev with a decent scope. Pop goes the mellon.
    Man that add is so much mental masturbation. In close quarters, I’d take a short barreled shotgun over anything. In a open parking lot..meh not so much.

    I’m wondering if the singularity will be made of titanium or carbon fiber…
