With respect to these individuals and Steyr, We have dropped the ball throughout our lives. Whether it was at the home when we should have been someplace special when we ended up somewhere else. Maybe it was at work and we let someone else down. Well, Stery Arms has dropped the ball. Many of us have sent emails to Steyr asking why they weren't there, maybe we even gave out critics best at what they lost. The most important thing is that we see what they will do from this point on. I use my M40 A-1 with great thrills. My grouping is tight, my recoil is limited. I have the most fun when I offer my fellow shooters my weapon when theirs fail from time to time. We don't know why they didn't show for "The Show", but they didn't. Grant it, it might have set them back a complete year. I feel trusted that someones head is on the line. If it isn't, it should be. The space should have been given up to someone else if they couldn't show. There should have been someone (anyone of us, in fact) who could have shown up with demos and literature for the ager to learn from. They could have just asked for help from the SteyrClub community. If I were (and I am not) the VP of marketing for Steyr, I would have Googled this site long before and have asked for assistance for marketing, research & development, as well as, CCW. H*ll, we have dropped the ball and were have been forgiven. They too have missed their chance for future sales in the US. All they have to do is ask for our help. Shoot Safe, Shoot Often and Keep my words in your sights. Thank you for letting me vent. My soap box is now closed. Take Care, MidTNShooter. Thank you Wulf and Armored!
