I am even more curious, What fact are you referring to? Because telling us that something just works or users raving about it that shoot 500 rds a yr or telling us that the Falex test or four ball test was performed and was ano fail without proof, There is no fact in any of this.
Don't bother. EATIII doesn't know anything. I doubt he even knows what a Felx test is. He's just trying to sell the stuff by making people think he knows what he's talking about.
What is your deal? Why the personal attacks? I believe you are the one with an agenda, what ever that might be. Please get your facts straight about me, It seams like you have a personal grudge against me. Did you fail Ranger school, Did I scuff you up at Batt or any of my other assignments, Did I fail you in a course? or are you just a bitter person. At 43 your to young to be a curmudgeon. You and Cobra would be better off Training than wasting time, kicking your heals and stomping your feet. Use the product or not, if you decide not to, it is your loss.
With all due respect, after omitting the heated rhetoric, I think they are asking reasonable questions. In this era of unregulated and unsustantiated wild claims that run rampant, I have to agree that it is only reasonable to provide the backup to statistical or performance claims made. Imho, I think what's upsetting the situation is when someone asks for the backup, and the inquiry is disregarded as unreasonable. That's a sure-fire recipe to upset people.
Again, I think the stuff works pretty good. I'm not sure if it necessarily works better than the other alternatives, but it does help with not stinking up the house like most of the other stuff does. However, I am able to clearly see what's in most of the other stuff, and I've been working with it for 40+ years, so I'm mildly confident I'm not going to grow extra fingers. I don't have the same confidence built yet with the FL.
I think the point is, when a customer - or potential customer asks for a vendor or mfr to substantiate a claim, I think it's reasonable to do so to the best of your ability. Isn't that part and parcel of making the claim in the first place? That doesn't forgive folks getting a little testy over the matter, but I can clearly see and understand how this hostility has built over the last few posts.
If you don't have the answers, as a vendor, it might be a good idea to enlist the help of an official of the firm, before arbitrarily turning off a number of potential customers by ratcheting up the rhetoric. That's not helpful on any level, and might turn off scores of people just on principle, lurkers too. You don't want that, do you?
Just thinking out loud.
