A proper boardroom

Gun manufacturer Heckler & Koch’s very impressive “Grey Room” conference room.

That’s a company I could work for.

    When the chairman stands behind that machine gun on the tripod and asks for all those in favour to raise their hands I wonder how many dont.

    I’m sure if Obummer believes in hell this would be without doubt the seat of Satan.

    An open letter to the gun community from HK’s marketing department: In a world of compromises, some people put the bullets in the magazine backwards…

    But it doesn’t matter, because our gun is on the cover of the Rainbow Six video games. Look how cool that SEAL coming out of the water looks… If you buy a $2,000 SOCOM, you will be that cool of an operator too. And chicks will dig you.

    At HK, we stuck a piston on an AR15, just like a bunch of other companies have done, dating back to about 1969. However ours is better, because we refuse to sell it to civilians. Because you suck, and we hate you.

    Our XM8 is the greatest rifle ever developed. It may melt, and it doesn’t fit any accessories known to man, but that is your fault. If you were a real operator, you would love it. Once again, look at Rainbow Six, that G36 sure is cool isn’t it? Yeah, you know you want one.

    And by the way, check out our new HK45. We decided that humans don’t need to release the magazine with their thumbs. If you were a really manly teutonic operator, you would be able to reach the controls. Plus we’ve fired 100,000,000 rounds through one with zero malfunctions, and that was while it was buried in a lake of molten lava, on the moon. If you don’t believe us, it is because you aren’t a real operator.

    By the way, our cheap, mass-produced, stamped sheet metal guns like the G3 and MP5 are the bestest things ever, and totally worth asinine scalpers prices, but note that cheap, mass-produced, stamped sheet metal guns from other countries are commie garbage. Not that it matters, because you’re civilians, so we won’t sell them to you anyway. Because you suck, and we hate you, but we know you’ll be back. We can beat you down like a trailer park wife, but you’ll come back, you always do.

    Buy our stuff.


    HK Marketing DepartmentHK. Because you suck. And we hate you.

      Best rant ever, a tour-De-force in Teutonic conceit.

    There is a certain private gunsmith from Foxton who may not share your opinion of H&K WO…..a story I may share sometime

  • No chance of a corporate takeover in there I suspect…
