Saw this on Palmetto State Armory's Facebook page.

We are proud to announce the new "NOBO12" lower that is on its way into production. Below you will find a drawing that will give you the general idea of the lower design. Sorry, but we do not have actual pictures available to post at this time.

Damn you PSA, Ive made so many excuses for myself to stop buying lowers, and you come up with one I can't make an excuse for.

Edit: every lower sold should include a $5 donation to the Romney campaign.

Their full-auto marking version should add "Progress" for the full-auto selector mark, and "Forward" right below the bolt release. ;)

PSA just posted their new "NOBO" lower receiver design to their Facebook wall.

Really disappointed.

I'm not offended or taken aback, but just really saddened that a company that I backed for so long has stooped to such a gimmick which further stereo types us all as crazy right wing wackos. These kind of ideas only hurt the community as a whole. I'm frankly shocked that they'd try to appeal to the lowest common denominator with such an easy and "rah rah" topic such as politics. When I say lowest common denominator, I mean it. Looking through the comments of the potential buyers, I ran across such gems as, "Personally I wasn't one that says **** OBAMA", "Literal retards are not exempt from constitutional rights, and my favorite, "you liberal ***s".

Like I said before, I've always been a strong supporter of PSA, but I can't voluntarily shell out money to a company that doesn't have the intelligence or clarity not to mix politics/religion with business. I hope they enjoy their new customer base.

I do understand where you come from on this topic and yes, it may be crossing the line but I myself wholeheartedly support PSA still and I will continue to do so as long as they provide good service and quality. Customer service is a lost art in the United States, and although I may not agree with all of Palmetto's decisions (such as no employees answering phones LOL), they have been exceptionally good to me.

Just a side note... this was on Facebook and i dont trust Facebook. Does everyone think this will be an actual production lower? Or is it just a stunt someone did on Palmetto's behalf?

Though Obama hasn't directly attacked the 2A fast and furious could tell otherwise.

Won't be buying one (we buy the San Diego, CA made lowers ;) ), but won't hesitate to buy their uppers and/or other sale goodies, ammo, etc.

Seems like there are some funny people back thar in So. Carolina. :D

Same, less marking is better marking. As an aside, it amuses me how people generalize too. Technically, being a Democrat would make me a "liberal", and by the generalization that would make me anti-gun among other things.

The reality is though firearms and shooting is a family tradition (and a darn good one) and I found humor in the picture. Would I buy it? No, I don't like gimmicks but I still found it pretty funny :D

Capybara
06-29-2012, 8:56 AM
I saw this written up on some other gun sites too. Why does everyone have their panties in a wad over this? Seems like a typical novelty type lower with a political message on it, I have seen much worse as Don29Palms post shows.

If BHO is re-elected, any gun built with this will be taken away ;-) and if BHO is not elected, it will fall to the wayside with all of the other political t-shirts and bumper stickers.

I agree with the mmurdock77 as it shames a group that wants respect so that their ideas about gun laws will be heard, respected and implemented. That would be 'us'.
But further, I continue to be shocked at how this group (and many others) feel free to take wild swings at our sitting president. Many here have served in the military, others LEO's, and most all of us are likely patriots. As such, slighting the commander in chief is just abhorrent, whether you like his ideas or not. And worst case, as I've taught my kids, if you cannot respect the man, at least show some respect for the Office.
