What are you, an asshole?
is it normal to holster the gun that way
he'd have to use his other hand and reach across his body to get it
couple that with the weird way he's holding the rifle
and you gotta assume this cop is retarded
Nope, it's real.
Just like some of the other Colt ads which prove that the AR was recognized for its small game hunting potential a full half century ago.
But no, it was never intended for the civilian market.
He looks like he had too many donuts.
im not arguing that colt advertised it to loaw enforcement, I'm arguing that the phot used is fake and being used to portray a false message that things are worse than they were.
The officers left arm looks like hes punching something or using a billy club to block someone. Looks like this photo has been tampered with. Would like to get the original
is this in reference to the other thread as to intention of inventor?
Well to be precise, I don't really see this ad speaking to the intentions of the inventor one way or the other, because, as we know, he never bothered to share his thoughts on the subject. I include this ad simply to 1) further dispel the laughable insinuations made by his progeny that Stoner would have been shocked to see ARs marketed to civilians and 2) counter the claims made by certain members of this board that the AR platform has never been recognized for having any hunting applications.
What you see there is called a cross draw holster. I don't think it was ever as popular as the strong side carry option which predominates today, but neither was it unheard of. Some officers preferred it because it actually made accessing your firearm quicker in certain situations - like when you were seated in your patrol car.
In this particular instance, however, I can easily imagine why Colt decided to depict this officer with a slightly unorthodox duty belt set-up - namely for the cross promotion and up sell opportunity. This way, they're not only advertising their new rifle, they're also reminding all the police departments across the country that no self respecting cop would report for duty with anything less than a Colt Police Positive revolver snugged away in his holster.
That muzzle might get hot after a few rounds fired looks like that police man may have been holding back a German Shepard at one time with the position of his body
If he held it the correct way you wouldn't see the product in the ad.
