I usually pay no mind to posts like this when I see them. Oftentimes they come from individual users trying to develop a following on social media, and, while it may not be my cup of tea, many who pursue this course do find success and their follower and ratio numbers are far more impressive than mine. However, when a company elects to use this kind of branding to market its tactial accesories, I feel that the freedom loving members of the firearms niche on the Internet must not remain silent. I take issue with this post because, first and foremost, it is an advertising post for a product from @haleystrategicofficial, one of the most respected tactical instruction and gear brands in the United States. Rather than rely upon the product's capability or value to appeal to purchasers, the company instead turns to using a model in what appears to be a bathing suit for the sole purpose of selling a product. Am I saying that women cannot or should not handle firearms in a bathing suit or while enjoying leisure activities? No. However, when a company stakes its chances at selling a product on how revealing an outfit the user is wearing, that is what is known as pandering to an audience, which exhibits a lack of respect for us and and a lack of principles in selling your product. If this was coming from lesser-known, higher-stakes brands like one that rhymes with Hames Meayger, I might be a bit more understanding, but this is well beneath Travis Haley and Haley Strategic's reputation, nor do I think Larry Vickers will be going this route anytime soon. If "normalizing firearms with women" is the goal, I think there are far better manners in which to accomplish this, and a merchandising post is by far the most dubious.
