This is what happened when he laced into the wrong guy over on SW: Was conveyed to me by a firearms and component manufacturer (not a sponsor on this site) as allegedly told to him by the Benelli reps at the SHOT show ~12 years back. He was inquiring about the steps they took to alleviate a problematic issue in their S/A's for which he had previously patented a sucessful aftermarket component. This was later echoed by one of the largest Benelli dealers in the state, implying it was due to keeping up with production demands for the product (at that time) rather than any subversive motives. FWIW, Being as I own Benelli(s) and Beretta(s), emailed Beretta several years ago regarding this question, no reply to-date. Congratulations! You're as good at fake news as anyone. Yuchi (apparently a fraudulent, deceptive, dishonest, and incomplete name) claims to have heard low-end gossip from an anonymous firearms and component manufacturer 12 years ago that he (or she) claims "they heard" from anonymous reps. I hear that "Yuchi" is actually a cover for "Yuri" and that you are actually clumsily colluding with the Kremlin in order to treasonously disrupt the Benelli forum. Perhaps Beretta didn't answer your e-mail because your nefarious, heinous Kremlin connections were a bit too obvious to them? CNN sounds like they feel that you are a vile, demonic threat to our democracy. Goodbye, Yuri. _________________ --Randy http://randywakeman.com Top Yuchi Post subject: Re: Heads Up on the New SBE3 Posted: Sat Jul 22, 2017 8:14 pm Field Grade Joined: Tue May 01, 2007 2:33 pm Posts: 73 Location: Indian Nations, Oklahoma I'd heard you were rather thin skinned but your latest diatribe makes for compelling evidence it's gone extreme. Hopefully, there's a 12-step program for addressing those with Internet anger management and/or self-esteem issues. BTW, the Yuchi's are a NA tribe long renowned for taking the feathers of arrogant, self-absorbed Internet peacocks. You should be relieved that billing currently doesn't match up however, you're showing steady progress in attaining that level. The tribal elders are considering endowing you with the First Nations title of Walking Eagle which is council designation for a bird so full of BS, it can no longer fly. Given your 2014 missive wherein all things Beretta/Benelli were duly blistered, am surprised you'd even show up on this sub-forum lest it tarnish your stellar reputation for forthrightness. Oh well, looks like anyone can go slumming these days. To be clear, I have garnered some gems of wisdom from your publications over the years, as long as there's enough Tennessee sour mash available to ameliorate wading through your proclivity for bloviation.
