    Except they weren’t. This is why two crashed to begin with.

    While I agree the differences in procedures between the NG and Max 8 aren’t materially substantial, it’s enough to impact the safety of...

    Putting on my MBA hat for a moment, the fundamental problems with the Bren Ten are twofold:
    One is functionality

    Tanfoglio Elite & Stock pistols are not common in the US, even on the competition circuit.
    It’s a relevant point since any Bren Ten reissue has to compete with it; I doubt any company has the...

    Perhaps this is the voice of heresy, but what can a new-spec Bren Ten do that a Tanfoglio 10mm can’t do for way less money and much better ergonomics + reliability? You can even cosplay Sonny...

    In some ways the dealer service is more important then the car’s quantitative abilities.

    Case in point, my stepdads BMW X5 was a POS. Spent more time in the shop then any vehicle my parents owned...

    The biggest hangup against Kia is the dealer experience. A 50K vehicle doesn’t belong on a Kia lot - even if the car is well sorted, that price comes with an expectation of premium dealer support Kia...

    For the same reason which propels our way of life- incentives.

    Politicians take from the till because there’s no incentive not to. What’s the worst that happens if a sitting politician gets caught...

    Most of the good ideas we see politicians like Trump and Pelosi take credit for came from smarter, lesser known and lesser paid associates.

    The only commonality between the Ds & Rs is they’re corrupt to the bone. That tends to reduce their furvor for “justice”. What we need is a truly viable third or even fourth party.

    For most support units in the military, M9s are an afterthought. I knew multiple NCOs who went downrange with no handgun time (yet command ensured they attended Cultural Appreciation briefings)....
