    Lol. Williejc called this years ago and everyone ignored him.

    Weird stupid gun companies need to understand weird stupid gun owners that like weird stupid guns are poor and won’t drop the kind of loot Hudson was asking for a pistol.

    Normally I don't give explanations to people who aren't owed one but I'll make an exception.

    The thread was started to pass the word in case anyone here actually owns one of those pistols so they would know they are now effectively shit out of luck for any and all support. They would be wise to preferably unload their now orphaned dog ASAP before too many people wise up, or if they really like it start buying parts guns when others start dumping them.

    The "hasta la vista, baby" comment was an allegory of sorts to the effects of Chapter 7 (liquidation) bankruptcy. Unless someone is really dumb to rescue some of the distressed assets, Hudson as a firearms company and as a firearms brand is gone forever.

    Not happy.

    Not celebrating.

    Not at all shocked or surprised.

    When something like this happens, I'm prone to wonder how the owners were living: salaries, company perks, etc.

    No surprise. Bad business decisions often lead to bad business results.

    In the case of most small businesses, their life isn't as glamorous as you might think even when this happens.

    I don't feel bad for Hudson in the slightest, good riddance. They ultimately did this to themselves and as such aren't the victim. The businesses/companies they robbed of millions upon millions are.

I do feel bad however for all the companies and business to whom they owe millions upon millions of dollars to and will never get paid back. I feel bankruptcy is nothing more than sanctioned theft and that goes for both business and personal.
    I don't feel sorry for those who made the poor business decisions, but I do feel sorry for those affected by those decisions regardless if they were employees of Hudson or if they are owed money by Hudson.

    I think you've made that abundantly clear.
