Is this company still in business?

The website is gone; is the website down or the company no longer in business?

I am not sure, but to be honest I don't care. I have kept this to myself for over 3 years and I am just now telling this.

I had contacted them about a donation to the national tournament. The father (original owner) told me flat out that his son would probably loose the business because he was not very mature, but I needed to talk with him. The father was very nice, He had turned over the business to him. The son told me he could care less about the CBA and did not need our business. He was a real jerk. I know, I of all people should not be saying this, but since he is closed I don't feel that I should no longer keep quite about this.

Thanks. I started on their lube from several sticks from the National Tournament and have bought their product from that point. I have several sticks left and will probably go with White Label when my current supply is exhausted.

(I ordered twenty sticks of M&N many years ago and the next night picked up my ASSRA Journal. The first item I saw was a notice that M&N had quit the month before.)

Note: Do not feel that you must cover for ill-mannered people. People starting out in their first business often do not realize that although praise is remembered and seldom spread, one bad story goes at hyper-speed. Lessons learned at the cash register are the longest remembered.

Know how you guys feel. I renewed my subscription to Precision Shooting (for three years) two weeks before they locked the door, shut off the phone and went to the tavern. Never heard another word. Still pissed after all these years.

I think you will be quiet happy with Glenn, his service and his products from White Label Lube. I've used his 2500+ lube for several years an have no complaints.

I know how you feel. I had just renewed for three years and had also kept all the issues, filed by each year. Looked forward to each issue but was left with a "Sour Cherry" taste in the end !              wd-30/40

Precision Shooting was a huge loss, a great magazine. Bailing out and keeping existing subscription money is crass.

Luckily I did not have a long subscription.

My understanding from a friend in Conn. is they locked the door and threw away the key. Called a bankruptcy lawyer and never went back, with any funds left paid as wages. Stiffed the printers and anyone else they owed money too.  Oh well, New England Yankees.
