Default I just noticed something...

In the last 3 months, US and Silencerco have been the only serious contributors to this section, the next would be Stalking Rhino back in September of last year.

Where did everybody go?

If memory serves, stalking rhino was a bit backlogged and stopped accepting rimfire recores because of it a while back.

I don't know about all that, but definitely the kings of Customer Service. It could be related.

He stopped taking rimfire jailbreaks a few years ago.

SR seems to be swamped either with business or projects. Every once in a while I see Matt or SinSir pop up to answer a customer inquiry that has bled over into the forum but I haven't noticed them much more than that.

I'll second that but I'd put Silencerco in the back seat at the moment. They've been great in the past but recently they made no effort to help me take advantage of Papa Dave's generous sale.

I had to get assistance from a [more] local dealer and with the help of Dave's awesome staff it worked out fantastic.

Thanks guys, I appreciate it. We try to be here for you guys, I was just taken aback by the lack of participation from other companies in here. It made me wonder what is going on. Where did everybody go? I guess they found new "apps" to tickle their fancy and now this is old hat...

I know Matt at SR is a great guy and is buried almost constantly in work or he would be on here more too. There are some pretty big names in the sub-forum though that have dedicated people to social media and ...

At least that is how it looks on the surface, I am speculating though as I have no idea what is going on at the other shops, so take that for what it is worth...

Just food for thought.

Dave

facebook and similar outlets is a good bet, I know every time I turn around somebody is trying to get me hooked into their facebook feed to participate in a promotion, a sale or a drawing

social marketing is the buzz in customer acquisition these days

I guess they don't like the fees for using this place as a platform...



Most just want their name spread about, that way search engine results (SEO) rise. Some grow so big, they mostly ignore everything but only post information on one aggregate (usually Fakebook).

Anyway, thanks for actually communicating with your customers (present and prospective) Dave, regardless of what platform you choose. It is actually becoming a rare thing nowadays. Most of what I have seen in most places is pure PR, and very little to no interaction otherwise. It's like most companies actually try to avoid interacting with folks, especially the bigger they get.

C'mon, you guys can't add hydro-forming and heat treating/carburization process equipment for a single product? I thought you were customer oriented.

This is exactly the kind of thing that happens when you're one of the few companies left capable of marching right up to the bleeding edge of suppression but then refuse to cross it.

Have y'all gotten your products onto the shelves at GA Firing Line in Marietta yet? Once I'm back in the NFA buying position there are definitely a few Liberty products I'd like to add to my collection.
