Product acceptance of the new Citizen Special smart gun is higher than imagined.

NRA had to oppose the earlier models because their natives were on the warpath again. But they're easy to pacify with a few trinkets and magic tricks from a celeb like Heston, and they forget pretty quick. The new model is so reliable and simple, it's hard to resist, and anyway most NRA members would jump off a cliff if "He" told them to. Members are calling NRA at 800-672-3888 and raving about the concept (and in their postage paid envelopes too). One gun group even worked up an ad for us (SEE ATTACHED).

It takes a lot to get the attention of big time players like Wayne with $20,000-a-month salaries, $15,000-a-month "expense accounts", perks, benefits, retirement, and so forth.

We took a cue from Bill Ruger's rehab from traitor to hero… Or should I say sellout to buyout? Our million-dollar "donation" to the National Firearms Museum, like Bill's, went a long way. (And thanks to the Winning Team, pretty soon that's where NRA members will have to go to see the old "dumb guns"). Agreeing to buy a Heston Silver Bullet for each gun didn't hurt either. Honor is cheap these days, but it isn't free yet. By the way, expect some off-book transfers, and we have a new PR firm.

The way things are going it won't be long before we make the "Colony" thing official again. I can't wait for people to start calling me "Sir Ed" rather than "Mr. Ed". God Save The Queen!

Your Loyal Subject,

Ed Shultz

Smith & Wesson

To have no proud monarch driving over me with his gilt coaches; nor his host of excise-men and tax-gatherers insulting and robbing me; but to be my own master, my own prince and sovereign, gloriously preserving my national dignity, and pursuing my true happiness; planting my vineyards, and eating their luscious fruits; and sowing my fields, and reaping the golden grain: and seeing millions of brothers all around me, equally free and happy as myself. This, sir, is what I long for. -- General Francis Marion, American War of Independence, Georgetown, SC [Source: 'Marion, The Life of Gen. Francis Marion' by M. L. Weems, Ch.18]
