And I add Mr LaRue has donated this large amount TWICE.

People are out of jail and have their guns back, and CGF has a Supreme Court brief for McDonald thru the assistance of Mr. LaRue (as well as many other fine donors).

Do remember that while the Big donations are great, all the thousands of little ones help too.

There's so many threads here at the CalGuns forum that it's hard to keep up with them all and sometimes when I see that someone has dredged up an old thread I get a little P.O.ed, but not this time. As a newer CalGunner, I was unaware of Mr. LaRue's generosity and now that I am, I have bookmarked his website and will visit there first the next time I decide to order an item online. Thank you Mr. LaRue for your generosity in supporting the rights of California's gun owners.

Thanks Mark. You just settled for me the question of which BUIS to put on my new AR10 build. Thanks very much.

This thread is part of the reason why I ordered last week a LaRue handguard instead of the DD I was previously coveting. And I know I won't be disappointed.

Mark, thank you!

I'm one of the lucky Californians to have a registered lower. Unfortunately the upper I have on it is only mediocre quality. It means I need to get one of your uppers! I'll be ordering from you in the next few months.

This thread is 6 months old and the fanboys are still on their knees singing his praises... why? Oh, right... because he oh so graciously donated money as damage control. Too bad nothing has changed; same crappy attitude toward CA and the "no lowers directly to CA" policy remains in effect.

There are too many other high quality products from companies who ACTUALLY support CA to waste time with ones that don't.

Supporting callifornia by lining their pockets with more sales. LaRue provides what we need, MONEY to fund legal challenges to eliminate these draconian laws. I'm sure he'd love to sell weapons to this giant (and gun hungry) state, however it's not without risk, which you likely do not understand.

Carry on.

Please tell me what the risks are when the product is 100% legal with documentation backing that up directly from the DOJ, and the legal barrier of the PLCA?

With Mark LaRue's support, he has allowed CGF to do things like:

* File lawsuit(s)
* Defend California gun owners from malicious prosecution
* Fight illegal firearm seizure and return the property to the owner

How many OLLs of various makes exist in California and are being fervently watched over and defended by CGF? Mark LaRue understands what Calguns Foundation means to the future of gun rights... he's donated $24,000 to defend and advance liberty in California, including those firearms of other manufacturers.

Can anyone show me a firearm manufacturer which has supported our cause and CGF as Mr. LaRue has over the past year?

No one can doubt the quality of LaRue Tactical, it's good stuff. Maybe Mark doesn't always say the things we'd like to hear but I can vouch for him being a great guy. We share an interest in General Aviation and Mark and I talked at length at the Shot Show this last January. He didn't seem to mind that I may have smelled of Kalifornia and we talked about his generous donation(s). I'm not a big dealer, in fact I only occasionally buy specific items from him so he had nothing to gain in talking with me for so long, while other customers wandered in and out of his booth.

Perhaps we shouldn't be so quick to look a gift horse in the mouth...

Bottom line is LaRue's putting money into the fight. Maybe part of the reason he won't ship lowers is so he can play anti-CA for his fans.

Default Thank you from the chained gun owners in California

Mark LaRue thank you for your generous donation to Cal Guns. Also thank you for your dedication at making great products and taking care of our soldiers. In my mind you are becoming the modern day Leupold & Stevens. You build a world class product and offer customer service like no one else. Additionally you are giving your hard earned money to causes you deem warrant the funds. Please know that myself and many other california gun cranks will remain loyal to you and to the wonderful products you make. THANK YOU.

Regards,
McMahon

Does that not make Mr. LaRue's donations seem even more self-less if he is donating to help gun owners in a state where he is forgoing revenue?

I think if you did, we would really want to +1 and thumbs up that thread. To me, it lets me know where to send my money. I like to support those who support us at HDF; I imagine that CGF members would like to do the same!
