Reply To: Airgun Web bias??
He’s one of the better pro reviewers for that because he does mention what he doesn’t like in some of his reviews. Check out his review of the Benjamin Bulldog compared to everyone else’s. You’d think it was a different gun. There is definitely a degree of reading between the lines but it’s obvious he was not impressed with that gun.
I have spoken to him on this subject and there is definitely a lot he isn’t allowed to say if he doesn’t want the work to dry up (same as every pro reviewer). If you want impartial views, you’ll only get them from peer reviews and even then, you’re more likely to get 100% candor if you ask in a pm vs on an open discussion.
You’ll never see one of those guys saying they hated a gun and advising you not to buy it publicly. If you contact Rick privately, I’m sure he’d give you his honest opinion.
