X Products manufactures stupidly expensive magazines and other accessories for AR-platform rifles and also M-14ss and others. Company owner James Malarkey might know widgets, but he doesn’t understand gun rights or marketing in the gun world.
In an interview with a reporter from CNN, he advocated trading gun and magazine owner licensing to make the general public rest easier with his products on the market.
(CNN) – X-Products of Nashville, Tenn., makes 50-round drums that sell for up to $360 and fit onto AR-15s and other military-style rifles like the FN FAL. Some of the drums are “skeletonized” with a cage-style casing instead of solid metal, so the shooter can see how many bullets remain.
X-Products co-owner James Malarkey said he sells 10,000 magazines per year. But why would anybody want to own one?
“For the shooter, it’s fun,” he said. “You can go out, you can shoot multiple rounds, you don’t have to do a magazine change, and it’s bragging rights to your friends.”
Malarkey realizes that not everyone associates the gun drums with good times. He admits that the general public might rest easier if government agencies develop a licensing system to make sure the owners are law abiding people.
“Instead of outright banning it, allow people to have some kind of licensing,” he said. “I think it would weed out a lot of crime.”
James Malarkey. His last name couldn’t be more appropriate.

If you have the misfortune of working for this foolish man, then today’s a great day to dust off the resume and start applying for a new job.
James Malarkey just Zumbo’d himself.
1.) A person who speaks from ignorance.
2.) A person who has his head buried so far up his ass he can’t see the truth.See that Zumbo over there, he used to be a well known outdoor writer until he pissed off the masses with some ignorant statement about banning guns.
