We’ve come a long way since nearly 2 years ago when some ideas on crudely drawn on graph paper were imagined. We want to put out a special thanks to those select bunch of crowd sourcing individuals who had invested and believed in our work.
Sadly effective today all operations dealing with our projects have
been suspended until further notice.
While this letter does not indicate we are out of the game completely, due to market volatility and available resources (like ammunition) - we are simply unable to test our products efficiently or to ensure things like effectiveness and safety. Right now the free market is dictating that the profiteers are king of the hill for the time being. So paying three times the asking price for ammunition is just not in the budget. Reloading supplies have dried up as well.
We also have been unable to secure a new machine shop to do our various prototyping that has been able to operate on our required timelines. We have also had machine shops that were prepared to do some work for us - all of a sudden get cold feet after the events of December 2012.
Once the market calms down, we’ll ramp up operations again. For the time being we are going to shift our efforts and budget to our second passion; refinishing firearms. The market is prime for those looking for custom colors or refinishing old worn out firearms, so from a business stand point that decision was the only easy one we’ve had recently.
When we get going against on our unique projects we’ll get the word out, we promise…
