Way To Read The Room

Speaking of the Instygram....


What kind of grotesque faggotry is that?

I am a pretty hardcore Beretta guy. While typing this I am wearing a Beretta t-shirt. If my life or the life of a loved one was on the line and I had to choose one handgun to use to defend them or me, I would pick my 92X Centurion. My hunting/clay shooting shotguns are Berettas. But this is not a good look for them. Obviously.

I guess they are trying to capture that all important make-up wearing sodomite gun owner marketplace, that must be a consumer demographic in the high single digits of people. Meanwhile they look like complete fools. I had to look up this degenerate freak, Jeffree Star (real name Jeffrey Lynn Steininger Jr.) and he apparently is a multi-millionaire who does make-up videos and has over 2.5 billion views on Youtube? WTF?!

Maybe giving handguns to mentally ill people is a bad idea, or maybe it is a really good idea. 

Regardless it is one of those asinine things marketing people tell gun people. Gun manufacturers and groups are endlessly talking about how many new gun owners are non-White and/or women, trying to appeal to these demographics while at the same time doing shit like this to alienate their actual customers. You see it all over the place. I don't watch TV but when I workout at the Y they have TVs on so I see them in the periphery of my vision and every damn commercial is some combination of a race-mixed family, a non-White family and/or faggotry. They are trying to appeal to these smaller groups while spitting in the face of the majority of Americans. When I see ads on TV or Instagram posts like this one from Beretta, it sours me on their brand and I think it is counter-productive, getting more so by the day.

It is always smart business to seek to expand your customer base but never by insulting your current customers. There is an old saying in business, it is a lot easier to keep a current customer than it is to find news ones.

  1. This was bound to happen. The traditional US gun market is saturated thanks to FFLs like you - GO USA! (In my case, in the past few years I've sold 10 for every new purchase.)

    The "make-up wearing sodomite gun owner" segment has been ignored up to this point. Time for them to prance right up to the gun counter and apply their interior design flair to select a .45 that best compliments their regalia.

    1. Given the rates of self-harm for trannies, this likely won't end well. Or maybe it will end really well depending on how you look at it.

  2. (If)the other person in the photograph is the Beretta rep. the answer is obvious.

  3. If I am not mistaken, the impetus behind such advertising is that if trad, cis-gendered White males are used in advertising, it is going to offend and turn away potential new customers from the females-and-phreaks class. Using females-and-phreaks to advertise will supposedly demonstrate the sensitivity and woke-ness of the business, without upsetting the White male customer base. After all, what White man would dare risk being offended in 2022 by the sight of females-and-phreaks in advertising?

    Well, this guy, for one. I proudly boycott products from Gillette, Heineken, Disney, NFL, etc. I've even reluctantly written off L.L. Bean for their ludicrous habit of dressing up homeboys and -girls for the catalog in their dorky flannels and ragg wool. There may be a few Brokeback Mountain rough-putters wearing L.L. Bean as they skip lightly along the hiking trails. But it will be a cold day in hell when niqqas in the wild represent for stodgy old Bean.

    1. That is all we can do at this point, withhold our custom from these places. Beretta got scorched in the comments, I hope they learn something from this.

  4. Eeww. Igor get the brain bleach.

    One company I worked for had new customer acquisition at 10x the cost of customer retention.

    1. It is time consuming as well, another saying is it takes months to make a new customer and seconds to lose an existing customer.

  5. Agree Arthur, why would you gift a handgun to a mentally ill person? Where is the legal department at this company?

    I can only imagine the guys who made this gun were told it was going to some rich bitch barbie and not some tranny weirdo, even so, betting they were not real excited about making this one.

    1. The Beretta craftsmen look like guys who make guns for a living, I doubt they would be excited to find out that this degenerate was getting their work.

  6. "make-up wearing"
    Are you referring to the one on the left or on the right? Pretty sure they are both wearing makeup.

    1. That is a fair point, the guy on the right might just be a Euro metrosexual or whatever

  7. “Corporations”

  8. While I'm sure these multi bajillion dollar corporations regret losing John Q Public's customer base ( a mere fraction of their bottom line, I'm sure), it's really fear of the strong armed criminal enterprise that is the feral gubmint, because that's where the pressure is coming from.

    Without public worship of the false idols, these corporations lose the ability to navigate in the
    globohomo financial world, including credit, banking, not being doxxed by hordes of twitter 'mobs' for not being 'inclusive' as well as being visited in the dead of night for not paying their "dues" to their (mob) bosses. MOSTLY it's about the extortion and mobs of hatred they don't want directed at them. and the audits from regulatory agencies.

    We're at the point where participation is mandatory, sacrifice is their children at the altars of transgenderism mutilation and/or homosexual deviance. Public admission of participation in Club Sodomy is necessary for continued attendance to fusa communism 101.

    2. We are seeing this bleed into the last few bastions, Beretta's product managers all look like actual men but that guy looks about an eyeliner away from being as weird as the fag on the left.

  9. Hey Arthur: Wifey's rundown of ole "Jeffree" is that he's not a tranny (although you'd never know it) he's a severe twink. As you've read Wifey is deep in the beauty industry... seems the lunatic is known for his makeup line (highly overpriced and overhyped dogshit)... his whole schtick was that he was one of the first being a fag doing makeup tips for box-wine aunts... and now he's 'made it' YouTube style. EVERYTHING this thing owns is psycho-custom... his Bentleys, Porsche, allllll pimped out pink like that Beretta...

    Also, LOTS of rumors of homosexual assaults that he's paid off the accusers, thereby burying any and all potential charges... so, in summation, a crazy predatory homosexual who's now armed and fabulous.

    Good job Beretta.

    1. I saw some of the rumors of sexual assault on underage guys on Wikipedia, that is quite the marketing genius going on.

  10. Arthur, you are lucky you don't watch television. According to television, particularly commercials, the country is 90% black, homosexual and transgender. The other 10% is mixed race couples. Completely fake and gay.
    I'm repulsed by Beretta. I've always been an FN guy but I wouldn't buy a Beretta now if I could get one for 5 bucks.
