It was brought to my attention that last year CNBC aired an hour-long documentary attacking the Remington M-700 - I was not aware of this controversy - I have since learned that that the same producer is working on a follow-up story attacking Remington yet again; this time the M-870.
Turns out Remington isn't taking this lying down.
Every security professional and gun aficionado knows that for any and every gun ever made, people have opinions pro and con - and they're not always based on knowledge and experience. CNBC can say what they want - for CNBC to produce an hour-long documentary on firearms is the intellectual equivalent of me trying to understand the mathematical model of Einstein's Theory of Relativity, then turning around and trying to teach it to a group of Kalihari bushmen.
The Remington 700 is the gold standard of military sniper rifles.
I personally own 2 Remingtons; the R-11 (modern replica of the M1911 they produced during WWI) and the venerable 870 12-gauge shotgun. Remingtons are excellent firearms - the highest quality.
In fact, I recommend the Remington 870 to all my clientele for home & facility security. How can anyone bust the M870? It has established itself as the military and police standard shotgun - versatile, robust and completely utilitarian; the warrior's shotgun.
What do a bunch of journalists know about guns?
Answer: 2 things- A) Jack, and B) sh*t.
