We sell our Raptor Grips through various online channels, such as our website, Gunbroker, ebay, and Amazon. Admittedly, those last two aren’t the best choices.
On September 24th, we received an email from Amazon stating that they had removed the listing for our Raptor Grip M500 due to it being “identified as a ‘pistol grip’ designed for attachment to an ‘assault weapon.’” Really? The Raptor Grip is a “pistol grip”? And a pump-action shotgun is an “assault weapon”?
Obviously, the Raptor Grip is the exact opposite of a pistol grip. That’s why so many people buy it. Pistol-gripped shotguns are painful to shoot. But I realize we were arguing with incompetent, ignorant drones. The scarier idea was that gun-grabbing anti-Americans are now trying to paint a pump-action shotgun as an “assault weapon”? Fudds, listen up: The antis won’t be satisfied until they have every gun rounded up and destroyed. Yes, even yours.
We went back and forth with Amazon for a couple of weeks. It was completely frustrating. Today, we received Amazon’s final word on the subject: The Raptor Grip M500 “has been identified as a non-permissible gun accessory and [the item] cannot be reinstated.” They wouldn’t back down from their obviously mistaken position that the Raptor Grip was a “pistol grip” and that a Mossberg 500 pump-action shotgun was an “assault weapon.” There you have it, Fudds: They’re coming for yours, too. We gun owners need to close ranks—and do it now.
We have completed a final design for the Blade AR pistol stabilizer. We feel really good about this latest design. It’s a bit more modern and aggressive than the previous prototype we sent out to beta testers. This latest design is rock-solid when mounted on a standard pistol buffer tube.
As for Tech Branch “approval,” we haven’t received the letter just yet. But expect it soon. If you would like to be put on the “to notify” list, simply shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just a quick note to let everyone know that Shockwave ZMAGs for the M-11/NINE guns are in stock again. You can place an order here through the site, or you can call us at 801-815-5178 with your CC info.
We received a very nice email from one of our customers, regarding the fit and function of the Raptor Grips for the Mossberg 500 and Remington 870. Dr. Templar was also kind enough to allow us to use this quote:
“The Shockwave Technologies Raptor Grip is the best thing to happen to defensive shotguns in decades. It fits great and feels even better. It makes traditional pistol grips on shotguns obsolete. Grab hold of the Raptor. It won’t bite.”
- Dr. Stephen W. Templar, author of rexGun
I must admit that I hadn’t heard of the book rexGun. A quick Google search revealed an interesting question: “Have you ever wondered what sort of firearm or ammunition would be adequate for the sporting pursuit of Tyrannosaurus Rex?” I hadn’t. But hell, if so many of us are concerned about the Zombie Apocalypse, perhaps it’s worth brushing up on how to take down a T-Rex. Should make for a very interesting read.
You can buy Dr. Templar’s book via his website.
The ENDO Tactical Stock Adapter for Glocks finally showed up. Got it mounted on one of my Glocks. Nifty little thing, the ENDO TSA-G. Added an AR receiver extension. And slid on the Shockwave Technologies Blade AR pistol stabilizer. Even cooler than mounting it on the AR-15 pistol. This thing is just badass—makes my Glock 17L incredibly stable, both with and without using a strap or sling.
Even though we don’t deal in ammunition, I get calls almost daily about .22lr ammo. “You don’t happen to have some .22lr in stock, do you?” Most of the time—like 90 percent of the time—it’s from a father who simply wants to take his kids out shooting for the afternoon. You know, teach them how to safely handle a firearm and develop a love for shooting.
Unfortunately, a comparatively small number of people are ruining what used to be an American tradition. All for the sake of a quick $20. These gougers seem to have nothing better to do with their time than to loiter around their local Walmart all day, waiting for somebody to put some .22lr on the shelf. As soon as they—and their two unemployed brothers-in-law—get their daily allotment of .22lr, they turn around and sell it on local firearms websites at a 100% to 200% markup.
Now there’s nothing wrong with wanting to make a buck. We do it every day. Most of us do. But there is something morally wrong in my opinion with continuing to perpetuate this artificial “shortage” of .22lr ad nauseum. All for the sake of a few measly bucks. They are literally ruining the American tradition of teaching your kids how to respect and safely shoot a firearm.
So what can we do? Everyone who reads this article can pledge to not buy from the local gougers. If we all make a concerted effort, we can end the “shortage” quickly. As soon as the gougers stop making their easy couple of bucks, they’ll move onto something else. Hopefully something a little more morally straight. We’ll all see .22lr on the shelves again—at sane prices. And we’ll be able to continue once again teaching our kids about the enjoyment of shooting.
