View Full Version : PRKarms "the Boffers are harassing us" Sale/Party/Calgun foundation fundraiser

Not sure exactly what forum this belongs in.... its a mix of a few different things...

So... we've been taking some flack of late from the wankers at the BOF... nothing serious, but they can be quite irritating when they decide they want to be...

And... In true PRKarms Style we've taken steps to educate them as to the error of their ways (well, certain parties have taken steps on our behalf) and while we HAVE to let them in to LOOK at our records, nothing says we can't use it as an excuse to throw a sale and parade evil black guns past them all day while our customers watch them like monkeys in a zoo.

While visiting our premises in sunny Fresno California, feel free to take pictures of the boffers, video tape them, pose in front of them for photos... just don't throw peanuts at them (that would be assault) or make eye aggressive eye contact (not sure if its true, but we've heard of agents responding by flinging feces.. and that's not cool).


being true free market advocates, here's how we're going to make this happen.

1) We're throwing a "Hi Alison" Special promotion....

If you buy ANY evil black rifle or pistol from us while a BOF/DOJ agent is on our premises we will PAY YOUR DROS.... This applies to both starting your paperwork, AND/OR picking up the gun.... we don't know when they are coming back but the second we have any info we'll be posting it up (Watch our facebook/webpage/forum)... it could be a couple days, could be a couple weeks... But if you are in the store starting paperwork, or picking up a gun at the same time as the Boffers... The DROS is on us.... If you TRY to make it to the store and the boffers run away, go out to lunch, skulk back to their hole... we'll give you a free T-shirt as a consolation prize/thank you for adding another entry that they are going to have to painstakingly copy by hand.

This applies to absolutely every complete firearm in the shop, from a $359 velocity VMAC to a PRKarms Fully converted S12 and everything in between.

But wait!!!! there's more!!!!

2)Calguns Foundation Fundraiser

Because (as we all know) the Calguns Foundation is awesome.... and Since not everyone can afford to purchase a gun just to throw the middle finger at the Boffers... We're having a sweepstakes fundraiser for the calguns foundation featuring a MPA 930 Tactical XX model as the prize.
https://www.masterpiecearms.com/prodimages/mpa930-sst-x_medium.jpg

(We'll have a separate thread for that once we get all the legaleese composed)... The broad strokes are... As with all CA sweepstakes, No purchase is necessary, tickets will be $10 with a special 2 for 1 deal if you enter the contest at our store while BOF/DOJ agents are on the premises.... (this is just a notification that a sweepstakes will happen, the details will be all in a different thread)


And Last but not least:

3) A love note to Alison from Gene

We are having a 'special' firearm made with a 'custom' serial number / model which we will be presenting to Gene Hoffman as a thank you for his tireless efforts in fighting for gun rights in California... a role which has greatly endeared him (so we hear) to Alison Merrilees over at the BOF.

To celebrate Alison and Genes ever growing friendship and respect for one another, the firearm will be:

model: HiAlison
Serial: L0v3GeneHoffman

Its going to be a MAC type with a tasteful pink/white color scheme..

This way, when they take the copied entries out of our bound book back to Boffer Headquarters in Sacramento, Alison will get a little tasteful reminder of how much we owe her for those memo's she wrote that started the OLL movement.

And, should she decide to try to pursue an activist agenda in the future trying to target assault weapons by make/model again (not going to happen, but she might think about it), she'll have to be sure to include the "HiAlison" combat pistol.

Yeah...

There are two responses to harassment:

1) lick boots, kiss *** and beg for mercy

2) Whip it out and show them what it REALLY means to swing a **** around

There is a clear preference for the latter in this post

THATS the correct response!

You don't have to be a local to attend the party... and you don't have to buy a gun to show your support. (we'd LIKE you to buy a gun... but its not mandatory...) throw a donation at the calguns foundation.... pick up a prkarms T-shirt and pose with it in front of the Boffers... Have FUN with it!.

Every face we can parade past them, every photo we can take of them, every video of them trying to copy the bound book is one more middle finger thrown in the face of a bully (metaphorically guys, metaphorically... you don't look classy physically flipping the bird).

What a great post and FU response to yet another taxpayer-funded harrassment of CA small business owners, by a gaggle of clowns who could NEVER find employment in the private sector.

Please, please, please do the following:

1) Ask for a copy of each of their business cards.

2) Scan those cards and post the images here.

3) Post all videos on YouTube.com (create a PRKArms account) use the agents' names as keywords when you post the videos.

4) Post all images on Photobucket (or similar) under PRKArms (with the agents' names as captions) so that they are findable via google image search.

5) Link up ALL OF THIS to your own website as well.

6) Post the DOJ/BOF agents' work phone numbers and work email addresses here so that concerned California gun owners can contact them to complain about this apparent witch-hunt.

7) PLEASE DO NOT post any private personal information about the agents online, even if it is easily findable via Google. We are simply "outing" these agents in their official capacity.

We are not interested in their private lives, and we are not stalking them, and if I see any indication of that, I will ask the mods to delete the offending post. Remember, WE are the good guys here. Let's keep it that way!

California gun owners should know WHO is trying to take away their rights. In the past, these people have relied on secrecy to do their dirty work. We are letting them know that they will no longer be able to "sneak around" and screw with California gun owners.

This is hilarious!! I was in there a week or two ago, DOJ was there looking through all the papers, and the guy at the counter kept handing me all the evil. The owner, just ignored the lady while he was on the phone. The lady went outside, i continued to fondle evil, she came in asked for more forms, PRK was like, ummmmm no, those arent readily available to you, she got flustered and left. The whole time, I could tell she was looking for any reason to shut em down. Maybe she is the evil. Lets just call them black rifles, and them the evil DOJ, BOF. The best gun store in the state hands down.

Bump.

What is typically in a bound book?

Aquisitions and Dispositions...

Essentially it records the manufacturer, model, and serial number of every firearm a dealer has taken in through their inventory, as well as the FFL that sent it to them or the FFL they sent it to... (I think it may also have a reference to a 4473 form for non FFL dispositions)

BOF is only supposed to look for paperwork errors which relate to the DROS system... they really have no business poking around in it except to verify specific data..

*crickets chirp*

We are currently in the eye of the storm.... the store is already partially wired for video and audio (getting more cameras rigged for feeds)

not sure yet if our connection can handle streaming it live, but if it can we'll do it.

With as strong as they were coming on, its very surprising that they've paused this long in coming back... they could well show up any day (and we're ready for them)..

I guess having a discussion with certain interested parties had a slight deterrent effect :43:..... not to mention the fact that they read this site regularly and know what they're in for when they DO make it back.

We're poised on the razors edge waiting for them to bring it on!

:D

Thanks for all the support guys, having the calguns crew behind us always feels good.
