Safariland are bloody geniuses the way they've successfully offloaded their problems onto customers and now the gun makers. And not 'good' geniuses like my immediately-prior post about the genius of Dick Hoyt. No, instead they've shown the genius of 'no ethics' wherein ethics is to 'always do the right thing no matter the personal cost'. These companies and their lawyers are working both sides of the street.
