Open Letter to Remington

I just saw this and am curious how others feel. I agree with Mr. Mann, personally. I might have added that Remington should forget about trying to hybridize the AR platform for hunting, but I could be in the minority on that point.

Re: Open Letter to Remington
I’ve never found a bolt action too slow for a follow-up shot, so I don’t see why hunters think a semi-automatic is necessary. I suppose an AR in 308 would make a decent brush gun, but I’ve never had an issue with a 24” barreled bolt gun getting “hung up” in the brush. My range has the pistol and rifle areas segregated. That’s great, but they allow the AR crowd to use the same area as those of us who use bolt guns. For every 10 shots I take, they shoot 50. They’re 223 plinkers, not hunters, and an annoying lot, at that. I think you’re right, Remington’s reputation was built on the Model 700 and the Model 870/1100 shotguns. The hunting world doesn’t need ARs. Remington’s business model of being all things to all people obviously didn’t work.
