"oh we knew you guys always liked or stuff but we didnt want to go through the trouble of making more.. but as soon as it looks like someone might produce our designs without us being involved due to there being over a decade of silence on our end.. oh we were here all along be were just talking about this"

screw those guys

Uh. I know the BPS folks very well. They HAVE been talking about doing Twisters again for a while now since its their 20th anniversary. They just haven't been able to find a shop to do the work.

I had personally talked with them about it since last summer, since they were trying to see if Jared at DC could do the work for them.

I believe it changes a bit state to state, but every state requires a tax stamp on a SBR, pistols you don't need a stamp for, but if it's got a short barrel and a stock you need the stamp, that's fed territory.

I can back this up aswell. I was in the shop in december shooting the **** with T2, doug and anthony about the BP geo 3's they were getting done and anthony mentioned he was looking for a machinist to do another run of twisters and I gave him a card for a shop a buddy of mine used to work at.

right. but lapco did them originally, and lapco never went away, why havent they.. in the last 10 years, bothered to try get another run of bodies?
"people dont shoot cockers like they used to" true, but its amazing how quickly a twister body still sells
"theres no money in it" maybe not in the short term, but if you make them. people will still buy them
"people arent willing to spend $500 on a cocker body anymore" true, there arent that many people left with that kind of cash that dont already own one, because they had to buy it from someone for an obscene amount because thats been the only way to get one for the last 10 years

my frustration is,, though they may have been shopping around, they never said a single word to the comunity about it.. so we all assumed that they were no longer interested in making cocker bodies, had we known, we might not have gone through the trouble of making something happen.. but instead so we took matters into our own hands,, and now all of a sudden here they come "oh we have been working on this for over a year". and why is it that we managed to do inside of a couple days what has taken them over a year?

i pretty much want no part of any of it at this point.. which a shame, because ive always wanted a clamshell twister

Did anyone bother to ask BP? I doubt it. I'd they had, Ant would have been all over it much faster.

Lapco produced them for BP originally, but BP owns the design.

Yeah. I suppose I am making assumptions a little bit. But I know when bps reopened their field a few years ago. There were people asking about it (bringing back the twister).. And BPS sorta didn't answer anyone about it being a posibility..

I'm not discrediting their intentions or the things they have done for the NEPL.. Its the timing. It would be like a group of people remaking the old Nokia candy bar and when Nokia gets word of it.. Nokia announces the impending release of that exact same phone

And when I talked to Sergio at decay of nations in October he sounded like they (LAPCO) would make a run of anything if you had the money

The timing may suck, but it's coincidental. BP isnt doing it to screw anyone or take advantage or anything. If all those people had interest, and didn't approach BP, then Lapco should have talked to BP about it.

Bought an Enfield in 303 British today, it's a military "sporterized" post-war jungle carbine... got it cheap, and I've always wanted an Enfield of some sort.

Based on the green sticker, looks like some NoDak Spud to complete it, nice. I'm just glad my fiance was completely cool with me getting the Enfield. Oddly, she was enthusiastic about that, but epically annoyed by the FREE cherry humidor that'd retail for a bunch of money.

preordered simcity

yes i hate EA and origin.. but i love sim city.. and i need something to do to stop playing Diablo 3..
was goofing off with planetside, its free to play, but you pretty much cant unlock ANYTHING without a monthly subscription.. or shelling out your own cash.. neither of which im willing to do.. and "free-to-be-designated-cannon fodder" is going to hurt alot more than help them in the long run
