I've ordered from LaRue in the past and have been highly impressed. And i like the fact he's not afraid to tell people exactly what's on his mind and not BS, but it seems to me like a lot of people would take his approach the wrong way. Personally, im a product guy. If you put out quality i'll buy it.

I'm just surprised to see an owner talk like that to the public. Again, i understand he's a no BS guy, but a lot of people are probably turned off by it, and while he gets a lot of business, im sure he looses some too.

But like he said he is running at 100% capacity, so more business does not really matter to him.

You can ALWAYS do more business it just means you put more people on backorder. What company will turn people away? If you are a company that doesn't want more $$$ in pocket, you won't be in business very long.

Yeah, but if you become one of those companies that always puts people on back order, then you will for sure lose business.

That's debatable. If you're putting out great products, which LaRue does, people will stick with you. I don't know, i just find swearing up and down the line, calling people online douchbags etc, isn't the right way to talk to people. Just my .02

I am not saying what he is doing is right.  A lot of people really don't like him.  But you cannot argue with the way he is doing business.  He makes one of the best products available and you can get it fast.  The stuff I have ordered from him I have had within a week every time.  If I have to wait for something I buy something else typically.  There are other manufactures out there making a good products. 

Plus his Dillo Dust dry rub that he sends out with every order is awesome.  Big Grin

Same here ST, i have gotten my orders from them very fast the times i've ordered, and they're great products. I have his "God Bless the Troops, Especially the Snipers" big bumper sticker on my car. I know it has to piss the liberals off driving behind me.

I have Larue products and will continue to purchase his products, there is some back story to that video, and this is straight from Mark Larue on AR15.com

"Okay, here's the deal ...

The Shotshow always has it's share crawling around in it ... sharks in the water so to speak.

This past week, a trio waylaid me while I was in the Ergo booth. Unbeknownst to me, they had apparently been challenged by other stand-up individuals to confrontationally engage me , video it, and throw it on the internet for the express purpose of embarrassing me publicly.

Looks like they followed their orders to the "T".

Here's their video one of them got while the other did the talking ...

" Youtube - Never to your face, but video'd behind your back "

Only thing is, Shotshow says "NO CAMERAS ALLOWED" ... it's posted everywhere.

And they talked amongst themselves about the rules before entering the building ...

Then did their dirty deed, complete with posting the video over on their little forum - " Starts At Last Post On This Pirate4x4 Page ". Mod deleted it.

Now things have hit the proverbial fan.

The ring leader, "Chris ." prides himself on digging up dirt and "destroying his enenies" via the internet.

His extreme excavationary skills are telling him that I have a criminal record and he has now posted that I am a criminal.

Hope he's got the goods on me ... otherwise that's libel.

What does ARFcom think my approach should be ?

See poll ...



M. LaRue

 
It is from the archives, I remembered reading about this after the video showed up.  These guys were pissed at him.  The thread is in the Archives if you want to look into it more.

Thats Funny Paul, I have some of those Bumper Stickers too. I put the same one on my Truck, and I dont normally stick anything on my nice truck. But I really liked the messesge and was hoping to piss off some liberals as well....Bandito Also Ive ben in busines for 16 years, I do ok, sometimes Im swamped with work but I do not want o grow. I sometimes turn work away, not often enough but I have.. Ive yet to call anybody a douchebag!! Ive told people to leave and not come back though, rare also but its happened...Sometimes a guy can only handle so much Bullsh*t from the Public and Vendors....In business there are plenty that are out to get you, and they will smile the whole while too... Not me though, Im not a smiler, I let em knowShocked  Personally I like LaRue products, there pretty darn nice including the Dillo Dust and Bottle Opener, I love there hats....Im a sucker for a good hat Bucky

I'm surprised this is still around.
Old news. I followed the whole thing on AR15.com, where I'm also a member.

Mark is a stand up guy, and this whole thing got alot of attention on the forum where it was originaly posted and in LaRue's Industry section on ARFCOM.

Some people have issues on how Mark expresses himself, but that is how he rolls. What ever people thinks of his persona, his products are first rate, and his company has done well. He has managed to grow it size in a down economy.

I have several of his products, and I will stand by them, and Mark.
Love all the swag that comes with every order, and sport his "GBOS" stickers on everything we drive.  Also, LaRue Tactical has the best CS in the industry he operates in.    

Fixed grammatical errors

Mark is my kinda guy. If he can walk the talk, then he can tell it like it is.
