RECOIL Magazine’s Official Position

Via Rob… Direct contact info at the bottom, BTW…

In light of some of the comments and complaints made about a paragraph in a recent article about the Heckler & Koch MP7A1, Recoil wishes to make the following points clear:

· It is simply not credible for anyone to question Recoil’s support for, and commitment to, the Second Amendment. Recoil is first and foremost a gun lifestyle magazine, aimed at the modern shooting enthusiast.

· The opinions in the paragraph in question accurately reflected those of the manufacturer, and should have been reported as direct quotes. Recoil acknowledges the way the paragraph was written has caused unnecessary confusion.

· Jerry Tsai, a passionate gun enthusiast and the visionary behind Recoil magazine, will remain as editor of Recoil.

We thank you for your support and understanding.

Quite honestly, if you read the article, it was one paragraph that was actually quoted from the manufacturer and we did not state it that way. Recoil has 26,000 likes on face book and the magazine has only been out for three issues and issue number 4 is just hitting the streets. I honestly believe that this will not hurt the magazine. I have not lost anyone as a result of this and do not expect to.

  1. I think that care must be taken to be clear on who siad what and when. The editor, IMHO, needs to clarify and assign credit to those who make comments quoted in any media of this type

  2. Bye bye sponsors….bye bye mag…

    The article was a good one and for some reason I missed the fact that Jerry Tsai was anti-2A… or that he intended to sound that way… maybe next time I will read a little more closely and try inserting my perceptions between the lines. I love a good flame war!
