Not much traffic in this thread lately. I hope ed appreciation is still a thing. :)

This could go in "random" or "shitpost" just fine, but my first thought was "ed will love this".

OK ed.

Suppose you're having to face down an angry mob, automatic rifles haven't been invented yet, and you forgot to bring your cannon and grapeshot?

What then smart guy? :coolspecs:

ed might have a conniption watching this, or not. I enjoyed it. The cool part is he was not allowed to use the word 'shoot' or 'gun' because youtube would dis-revenue ... i forgot the word ... his channel. It's a restore of a repro.

I'm subscribed to this guy's channel. He used to be the curator of a farm tool/machine museum. He restores for use rather than for show; a show tool is a sad tool, a tool wants to be used. He fell out with the museum owners and moved to his own channel. I think it had to do with the youtube revenues he was getting, but he never really made it clear. Anyway, good restore.

Remington Arms prepares for bankruptcy; Navajo tribe in talks to buy - source

Remington Arms Co, America’s oldest gun maker, is preparing to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection that could come as early as Sunday night and is in advanced talks for a sale to the Navajo Nation, according to a source familiar with the matter.

The Native American tribe is planning to vote to approve the deal as soon as Friday, the source said. The tribe previously had bid for Remington, planning to drop its most controversial semi-automatic rifles, the New York Times has reported.

U.S. retailers have placed restrictions on gun sales after school shootings, hurting manufacturers such as Remington. A Remington Bushmaster rifle was used in the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting in Connecticut in 2012 that killed 20 children and six adults, making it central to debates over gun policy.

The gunmaker has filed for bankruptcy before, in March 2018 after sales faltered and the company had trouble meeting requirements of its lenders.

Remington emerged from bankruptcy the same year, owned by its former creditors, including Franklin Templeton Investments and JPMorgan Asset Management.

The sources cautioned that the timing of the bankruptcy filing could slip, and that the deal with the Navajo Nation, the largest Native American reservation in the United States, may not come to fruition.

The sale to the tribe would occur through a court-supervised process, the source said, subject to higher and better offers and approval from a judge.
