Big Thumbs Down for Danger Room on this one

SHOT Show: Vote for your Favorite Hick Couture

Aaron Rowe at Danger Room picks out a few cheesy items and decides to use them to poke fun at SHOT Show types:

People that rrreaaaaallly like guns can be less than sophisticated. Not all the time, but some. Perhaps tacky is the right word.

I was at the show and know what was there. I saw the wine rack thing and asked my wife how many people who decorate with antlers drink wine. I didn’t notice the other items pictured. At least other industries don’t have cheesy products.

Incidentally, I’ve got a special place in my heart for crocs. Rrreaaaaallly special.

  1. Murdoc, Take it easy and find a sense of humor. All interest groups have their items or mores that can be found humorous and the gun culture is no exception. Aaron has his appreciation for firearms as does the photographer that took some of those pictures (me), but we can also take a step back and laugh along with those who built or designed some of those products. The entry that Aaron made was not remotely mean spirited and simply points out what it funny or culturally peculiar. By the way, the cup holder from Badger Ordinance is simply awesome and was obviously intended as a gag, so come on dude.

  2. Hah. I’m not overly down on the products which are obviously cheese. As for All interest groups have their items or mores that can be found humorous and the gun culture is no exception. ‘No exception’? The gun culture probably leads the way. Man, everyone’s on my case this weekend… And I was serious about the crocs. Special croc-centric feature in the planning stages right now. Fun for the whole family.

  3. The wine rack owns, I don’t know what I’d do with one for if I had it; but it definetely wins points for style. Crocs are definetely love/hate styling. The camo makes me hate them no less. Hah And I agree most interest groups have stuff thats worth mocking to a given extent. Except for the ones that are sacrosanct due to political reasons. :p
