Is it April, or a superior trolling?

Postby bignflnut » Wed Feb 14, 2018 9:37 am

Adaptive Tactical, LLC, manufacturers of innovative firearm stocks and accessories, has released its new ‘Orange Less Lethal’ EX Performance Forend and Adjustable Style Stock compatible with Mossberg® 500, 88 and 590 series 12g pump shotguns. This is a requested follow up to the ‘Orange Less Lethal’ EX Performance Forend and Adjustable Style Stock for the Remington® 870 12g pump shotgun model, which was released in 2017. The highly visible bright orange easily marks the shotgun for use in ‘less lethal’ law enforcement applications, while the adjustable stock feature is ideal for compact storage in vehicles. It also provides a better fit for all officer sizes.

“Currently, we are the only company on the market making less than lethal stocks in an adjustable stock configuration, and that is a responsibility and honor we do not take lightly. Law enforcement and security professionals, as well as members of the military, have one of the most important jobs: to keep us safe and protect us from harm. We listen to our customers and create products they demand, and the ‘Orange Less Lethal’ EX Performance Forend and Adjustable Style Stock for Mossberg shotguns was no different. We hope this new product will create a more ergonomic, customizable and tactical shotgun for our brothers and sisters in blue,” said Gary Cauble, Director of Sales and Marketing for Adaptive Tactical.

Less lethal stocks? Is this a riff on the bump stock ban or some weapons ban (based on cosmetic features)? What a great angle, and it's only for Law enforcement / professionals, because the common man is a jerk who doesn't care about "safety"...

Two possible uses:

1) Orange hardware indicates the gun will be used only for training, such as force on force or weapon retention drills.

2) Orange hardware indicates the gun will only be used with beanbag or pepper/tear gas "less lethal" ** rounds for riot crowd control.

** At close range those rounds can still be lethal, hence the name.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

^ Brian D. is spot-on.

This is why some folks poo-poo furniture or magazines that are painted with "safety orange" or blue - which often denote the use of less-lethal munitions or simulation ammo for force-on-force training (Simunition/UTM/etc.).
