Thanks again, readers

We journalists love exclusivity.

Thanks to tips from a couple readers, I was able to connect the dots on the story about the two former Glock execs who are facing federal indictment for allegedly selling 14,000 pistols and 12,000 magazines to a Kansas gun dealer at the cheaper law enforcement price.

The dealer then sold the pistols to Cabellas, and the mags to another vender, and allegedly kicked back some of the profits to the executives.

The feds indicted the pair, and the FFL holder, for wire fraud and a host of other charges.

Two readers pointed out that one of the former Glock execs is currently the president of the Daytona Beach-based SCCY arms.

Note: the man has strongly denied the allegations. SCCY is backing their president and has been very forthcoming and transparent.

No other media outlet has the full story yet, and it’s a very important read for anyone interested or involved in the firearms industry.

This type of synergy is fantastic.  It’s also very, very appreciated.

Thanks again, folks.
