Willie has been on record as saying...

"We know this tidal wave of fame and money is going to end. I give it maybe 3 years. So why wouldn't we make money while we can? And do so by the best way we can, by being us?"

If anyone really has a problem with that, then oh ****ing well.

If makers of t-shirts, guns, cups, bandanas and all kind of other stuff want to slap their name on it, and charge a premium... As long as people are paying that premium, customers are happy, and the makers and endorsers are happy, who should give a flying ****? It's called capitalism.

I understand NOT wanting to buy it for the mark up to add the Robertson name... I'm not going to buy one either, not at a premium price for their endorsement. But I damn sure don't have a problem with them making money off of it.

exactly. like i said, i am not going to rush out and buy one, but i wouldnt begrudge anyone who did and i find not a bit a fault in them trying to make a buck either off their name and fame.

if i could slap my name on some T-shirts, caps and cups and make a few bucks, you can bet your last dollar i would be all over it!

I wonder will the Gays demand that Mossberg makes them a shotgun? Say like the "Ellen DeGeneres Dominatrix",.

You couldn't disgrace any firearm with Rosie O'Donell's name, it would have to be a cheap silverware set or maybe a new and morbidly fattening snack food

The only gun ugly enough to have her name on it is probably a Glock.

That made me smile

Just looked at the mossy website. $560 for a DC 500.

Sorry. When you can pick up a Remmy 870 or Mossy 500 at a pawn shop for as little as $200 in some cases, and up to the highest price I've seen on a used Mossy 500 of $350... Not a snowball's chance in hell I'd pay that much for a 500. Just just because it has the duck commander logo and "Faith, Family, Ducks" engraved on the receiver.

If you look at their site though, I never knew that their 500's had received a facelift. Looks like most or all of them have sling swivel studs and drilled/tapped receivers. Never saw the point in putting a sight system on a shotgun myself, but some folks do.

I imagine the GLAAD model to be lavender, aromatic gunpowder, maybe a bullpup model.

I'd certainly pay the markup on a DC before one with lime green zombie graphics belched across the stock.

I admit, some things I do pay a little extra for if it does or can do a couple of things 1) give the endorser financial gain, assuming I support them of course (i.e. the NRA) or 2) show support to a cause that is under attack by the left, and this could very well be a group such as the Robertson’s.
So, let’s take a successful group like the Robertson’s. They have done very well and I am very happy for them, for the most part they are – “one of us”…Pro 2nd Amendment – right? Why would I want them to fail? But they are successful now, so I may not be as inclined to spend the extra money because it is endorsed by them as I may have in their beginning stages.
