I’m sure many of you are familiar with RECOIL magazine. It’s a new gun magazine that focuses on the lifestyle so many gun enthusiasts enjoy. I loved it. The magazine has only been around for 4 months, and just put out their fourth issue a few days ago. I had purchased each issue personally.

Every thing looked to be going great for the magazine. Tons of support, selling a lot of issues. Great! And than they wrote an article about the HK’s MP-7, in which they stated that citizens shouldn’t have these guns because the gun has no sporting purpose. Take a second. Read that again. A gun magazine, stating that civilians shouldn’t have certain weapons that don’t have a sporting purpose. I flipped shit, and I wasn’t the only one.

Not the worst part though. It gets better. On Sunday, their lead editor, Jerry Tsai, instead of writing an apology, came out with some long justification of the magazines position. It wasn’t an apology, it wasn’t a retraction, it didn’t even say that they made a mistake. He took a classic gun control line. I’ll just quote this asshole for you:

“Like we mentioned before, the MP7A1 is unavailable to civilians and for good reason. We all know that’s technology no civvies should ever get to lay their hands on. This is a purpose-built weapon with no sporting application to speak of.” –Jerry Tsai


You would think that RECOIL would have read the damn 2nd Amendment. You’d have thought, right? Apparently there is a part in there about only bearing arms that have a sporting purpose. I guess I wasn’t the only one who hadn’t read that part of our constitution. I was under the impression that the main point of the 2nd Amendment was to defend ourselves against tyrannical governments and to defend ourselves, our property, and the constitution. Any magazine in this industry that doesn’t agree with that 100% needs to go away.

Turns out, I’m right, and a whole lot of people agree with me. Here is a list of sponsors they have lost!

1. Silencerco

3. Its Tactical

4. Haley Strategic

5. Truly Tactical

Annnd now RECOIL redems itself. They fired Jerry Tsai. Is it enough, or too little too late?
