Weekend, July 15-16, 2017 – Military acquisitions contractors, it seems, are always ripe for new toys. We all remember the $400 toilet seat, don’t we? Spending the taxpayers’ money is an art in Washington, DC and no one there is anxious to change their underwear, much less their spending habits. So it should come as no surprise that the Pentagon spends lots – repeat, LOTS – of taxpayer money letting out procurement conditions for new guns and other military hardware that have gun makers resorting to just short of name-calling their competitors, all of whom are hoping to secure rich military contracts. Beretta, for example, after what seemed like an eternity in production of their near universal military sidearm, the iconic M9, finally lost out to Sig Sauer’s P320. But then, Glock, who was leading the pack at one interval, complained to the Pentagon that they should review, probably for the umpteenth time, their choice of pistols, charging that government inspectors were premature in their choice of the SIG.
Eventually, that little tussle among friendly fire friends will come to a conclusion but not before other Pentagonal wish-book items will force federal bureaucrats to begin foaming at the mouth. With endless items available, some of which would make a taxpayer’s skin crawl, the government brass will begin yet another review of “opportunities” to buy, buy, buy, whether a product is needed or not. And some of those – like the toilet seat, the latest model of which the military paid $640, along with screws costing $37 apiece and a coffeemaker worth $7622. And they ended up with lousy coffee, to boot.
In that spirit, however, we’ve delved into the GunProPlus archives to come up with a few items that just couldn’t cut the mustard, some of which we hope you’ll enjoy in this presentation of…
