They stepped on their dicks pretty hard with that lost. I'll continue my lifelong boycott.

He absorbed a lot of lead.

That said... when called out on this post they simply blocked those who questioned their post, and are pretending it didn't happen. Shortly after they received about 1.5k negative reviews to their social media account.
Basically, they said "oops" it was a new person on the keyboard.

I will not do business with them again, and would not recommend their cheap holsters to anyone.
Was that the one in Atlantic City, NJ?

Anyone have a transcript of what was posted?

Look at the thread on their FB page and you have cops coming to their defense.

I watched the video when it was first posted. While the perp was deservedly shot (car chase, aggressive posture and pointing the weapon at LEOs), the police continued to fire shots into his body well after he was down and no longer a threat. I would call it "excessive display of lead". I think this is what started the 1.5k of negative responses about police. I'm not sure what Aliengear thought to gain by posting the video.

I'll echo what others have stated, save your money and buy a holster from litepath's 2A Holsters.

Dude is dead anyway at that point, may as well get a round or two off and get that month or two of paid admin leave.

I doubt I'd have still been firing and it continues after a couple shouted cease fires but apparently the dude still had the gun in his hand. I dunno. Either way that guy was on a one way trip.
