RECOIL, the gun magazine who brazenly told civilians they shouldn’t have modern firearms has brought on Iain Harrison as their new head honcho.  (See RECOIL from Recoil Magazine. “MP7A1 is unavailable to civilians and for good reason.”)

Harrison gained some notoriety as a competitor on Top Shot, winning whatever year’s competition on the reality show.  He’s moving to Recoil from Crimson Trace.

Will it be enough to salvage the magazine’s reputation?

Not likely, but it’s a step in the right direction.

If RECOIL really wants to turn things around, they’re will to need to do some exemplary service promoting the Second Amendment to rehabilitate their offensive past behavior. Underwriting a landmark legal case against the New York State law, for instance, would go a long way to restoring their reputation.

Will that happen?

Not so likely, as we suspect the magazine’s owner is an anti-gunner and more interested in profits than promoting civil rights.
