Authority to the Airgunning World

Where instigating argumentative debates and stepping on egos are the rule.

Was this trigger mod made for Tim & LD's Field Distillation gun? No silly, it was made for the super duper chinese guns. It's very hard to improve on their design, but Steve in NC d
id it!
The deal between 'ol Man DaTuna and Steve in NC seems a bit confusing. For your pleasure, here is a summary:

Steve is an endless tinkerer with crummy guns & systems. In other words, he basically tries to figure out how to make cheap junk work better for cheap. He collaborates with DaTuna who agrees to make & sell the triggers. However, Steve does not want any liability in the endeavorr other than the project paying off. Tuna gets the triggers made. Naturally he gets tired of Steve's take, and says he'’ll do them himself - and does so. 'Tuna Basically steals Steves design - but hey these are cheap airgun tricks: no patents,no rights, so who cares. DaTuna makes an “improved version and cuts Steve out of the equation.

Then Steve spends the next three months whining & complaining endlessly about how he was robbed. Until now! That new beer-can trigger mod is his answer to Tuna. Steve claims the beer-can trigger is better than the stolen GTX item. And thus feels he has destroyed all market for Tuna's $30 complete trigger. It'’s all posted on the airgun boards - diagrams and all. You can grab whatever you like.

So Steve feels like he'’s getting even. I'm sure 'Tuna is very hurt. The drama is so tiresome. It'’s like opening a can of spoiled dog food every time Steve in NC posts anything. I can't wait for the next innovation that rocks the airgun world to its core.

I finally it figured out why the infamous Bestunes turns out tunes for some people faster that others. Here are my findings:

The thread that gave me a moment of clarity:

Those pesky Mexicans

Recently, I received a questionnaire from bestunes before I sent my rifle to Russ. This is how it reads:

1. What do you want me to do with your rifle?

A. Increase the power.

B. Increase the smoothness.

c. It doesn't matter. You are a god and I trust you. Perform the default tune: Lube it, then
charge me $250.

2. Turnaround involves many factors. They are:

A. if I like you or not.

B. How much your worship me on the airgun message boards.

C. Complimenting me on my hairpiece when we talk on the phone.

D. If you are a border brother.

Appendix A: How long you have to wait:

1. 25% Mexican: 6 months
2. 50% Mexican: 1 year
3. 75% Mexican: 1.5 years
4. Full blooded: Your money isn't good here!

Want proof?

Bottom line:

You don't want to be a Mexican if you deal with Bestunes
