I Guess We Don't Suck And They Don't Hate Us

A long-running Internet meme started by Larry Correia about Heckler and Koch goes like this:  HK. Because you suck. And we hate you.

Larry was making fun of the assumed Teutonic superiority of HK as evidenced by the reaction of their fanbois to any criticism of HK.

I came across a press release today that indicates that maybe they don't hate us. They are starting a sponsored shooting program for all levels of shooters from novice to expert. Moreover, you can apply for the sponsored shooting program via the Internet. In other words, you can find them, they don't have to find you. Applications will be accepted today through May 31st.

  1. Their rep I met at their booth at the NRAAM certainly seemed the very opposite of hate - courteous, informative and actually interested in selling products to civilian consumers, including their shiny new P30SK and their upcoming VP40 and VP9/40SK line.

  2. H&K only hates the German army these days.

  3. 100 percent worthy of forwarding indeed. Well done John. You have arrived.
