Amidst all the chaos of SHOT Show 2016 preparations, we forgot to let everyone know about an exciting development:

We are proud to announce the addition of Mr. Adam Pini as our new Outside Sales Representative. Adam comes to us with extensive sales experience in the black-rifle market, having previously worked for excellent brands like LWRC, ADM, and WarSport.

He’s also a heck of a shooter, and has hair like a movie star. Be sure to look him up at the RCS booth (#8606) at SHOT and let him show you how RCS can help your gun shop or gear store make great money!

    But seriously why is this someone to care about?

    • He’s a solid-ass dude and has contributed to a shit ton of big endeavors.

    • Odie Tucker says:

      Would you like your PB& Jelly Sandwich with or without the crusts on. Don’t act like you wouldn’t be creaming your dirty 5.11s if you got featured on SS.net for an accomplishment other trolls would turn around and make comments just like your own. Why did you even comment? Why did you make me do this?

      Congrats Mr. Pini, wish you the best and excited to see what you do for RCS.

    • Gary says:

      In your defense he does look like some overweight mall-ninja kind of guy, there’s no other way to say it.

      However, picture of a person alone doesn’t always convey the full story.

      • D.B. says:

        I tend to agree with both of your statements, Gary. Well said.

      • RCSMichael says:

        Gary-

        It’s a picture of a guy in a black long-sleeve t-shirt and ball cap holding the product (a rifle) he was selling at the time the picture was taken. What about that gives a “mall ninja” vibe? He’s not wearing Multicam. He’s not wearing a helmet or plate carrier. He’s just a fat dude holding a carbine.

        Yeah, Adam is fat. He knows that, and he’ll tell you as much face to face. But he just got hired for an outside sales job, not selected to be an assaulter for a special mission unit; so I’m not sure how his weight is anything anyone feels the need to comment on.

    • Matthew says:

      I bet the judgemental ones of you here would be eating your words if it turned out that he was some kind of military veteran or former law enforcement – not that it should even matter, as this guy is clearly very capable in his field, hence the appointment, which can only benefit the industry you all love so much.

      Let’s hope the childish reception doesn’t dissuade RCS from wanting articles relating to them shown on Soldier Systems in the future.

      • SSD says:

        Agreed there. For many years now forums have been toxic for business. Occasionally, I see the same behavior appear here. Guess it’s time to slap folks around again.

        • kopfjager says:

          Military and LE is home to righteous fat shaming.

          • Chris says:

            If there was ever a place for fat shaming, it’s those two communities. These are professions where physical fitness has a direct impact on job effectiveness, and job effectiveness has a direct impact on your life span.

            Civilians can be as fat as they want, it’s their life to live as poorly as they please.

            • Gary says:

              Agree.
              This guy however is a salesman, he is probably good one at that too. He could sell me a gun but I wouldn’t see myself in action along side of someone like him, that’s for sure.

  2. Blehtastic says:

    Pancake wings are amazing for fat guys that conceal carry OWB with a cover garment, so he’ll probably bring some much needed perspective to a sclerotic industry that seems incapable of serving the hordes of conceal carriers that can draw and issue commands just as fast as those of you with 6 percent body fat.

    Even Usain Bolt can’t outrun a bullet.

    • Mario says:

      “..the hordes of conceal carriers that can draw and issue commands just as fast as those of you with 6 percent body fat…”

      Can they really?
      You sure about that?
      I’m not.

      I’ve fought next to fat guys, they’re more than capable when stationary on the shooting range but when there’s reasonable part of ground to cover on foot, I’d rather be running next to the ‘6 percent body fat’ guy.

      Horses for courses (no pun intended).

      You can slap me Eric, with full permission.

      • SSD says:

        The man’s girth has nothing to do with how many guns he can sell and in the end, that’s the value a salesman has to his company. A 30″ waist isn’t doing anyone any good if it’s attached to a guy who can’t close a deal.

        • Mario says:

          Blehtastic wasn’t talking about the guy’s selling capabilities. My response was thus tailored towards that.

          As for your comment, yes – I agree, selling has not much to do with the man’s girth or volume.

  3. Jon, OPT says:

    I’ve met Adam and he’s good people, and he’s all about taking care of those close to him. The man lacks any air of pretentious bullshit, and genuinely cares about not just customers but relationships. I wish I had half the sales capability he has, I pay someone to do that stuff for me.

    Is he fat? Yes, but personally I could give a fuck about that unless he’s trying to sell me advice on PT, or is preaching what he isn’t practicing.

    Good for him and RCS, he’s an asset to whoever he works for, congrats to you Adam.

  4. Thomas Gomez (TFB) says:

    Good for you Adam! Good luck with the new job!

  5. CWG says:

    Always cracks me up seeing dude dancing around the internet considering he either runs or is chased from every company he hangs out at. Oh well. I would put money on him jumping ship within a year, but that’s a bit long for him.

    • RCSMichael says:

      It always cracks ME up to see a dude talking smack from behind the anonymity of a keyboard and screen name.

      If you have something negative AND factual you’d like to say about Adam, at least have the balls to step out from behind the mask and sling your mud openly.

  6. Jason says:

    Jesus, this is like arguing over whether the guitar salesman is qualified to sell me a guitar because he doesn’t play as well as Jimi Hendrix does.

    I honestly don’t care how well he plays his guitar. All I care about is if he’s a nice guy, knows what he’s talking about, can sell me a good guitar, and can back me up if something goes wrong and I need some customer service help. Beyond that, who cares?

    Congrats on the placement Mr. Pini and best of luck to you.

  7. David Loeser says:

    Good on ya Pini!
    Congrats on the new gig. For those of you that don’t know Adam he is a great guy and a great voice for the industry.

  8. Miclo18d says:

    Do people’s moms not teach them, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all!” Anymore?

    Is the guy”powerful”? — yes.

    I’m sure he knows it.

    The company hired him for a reason. To get shit done. I imagine he has a good reputation for that!

    you know you were wrong, just go do push-ups.

  9. Philip says:

    Who cares what size the guy is? If he’s a subject matter expert with a passion for his work, that’s what matters. He’s talented and proficient enough to be hired by a company of this magnitude; so he’s obviously got a knack for something RCS felt it needed.

    Best of luck Mr. Pini!

  10. Ragnar says:

    This is the dumbest conversation I’ve ever read, with the possible exception of whether or not Jade Helm was covert placement of UN troops for martial law.

  11. jack says:

    Looks like this is his 4th gig in 5 years.

    LWRC- 2 years
    ADM- 9 months
    WARSPORT- 1 year.
    And now RCS.

    Why the bouncing around? Rumor was he got fired from WarSport, but he posted he left on his own.

    Never met the cat, but you can’t deny that it does leave one wondering why all the movement if he really is as good a sales guy as everyone claims.

    • RCSMichael says:

      Fortunately, I *have* met Adam; I’ve known him for years. I also know people at all the places he has worked prior to RCS. I know why he left his previous jobs (facts, not rumors), and obviously those reasons weren’t of a nature to negatively impact my decision to bring him on at Raven Concealment. I wouldn’t have hired him if I had any concerns about his integrity, knowledge, or salesmanship.

      Prior to starting RCS, I worked in corporate outside sales (business to business). In that world, it is commonplace for salespeople to change jobs every 1-3 years. So I’m a little confused as to why there is such pearl-clutching over a young sales guy changing jobs in pursuit of the career path he has chosen.

  12. Airborne_fister says:

    Hey all I can say is I talked with this fine gentleman! He helped me with getting my holster to me and even helped me set it up for me to use while in a wheelchair and when I wear my scrubs. That’s all that matters to me. Who cares about anything else. If you help someone with the problem they have you can have a customer for life.

  13. Pete says:

    HAH! Adam, you made SSD! Good on ya brother. Congrats again on the new gig!

  14. AC says:

    Leave the guy alone, what the hell is wrong with you people. I guess you have nothing better to do then troll the web searching for that opportune time to remind the world what an asshole you can be. Is jealously the reason for your behavior? Does this bring back some childhood memory from when you were picked last in gym class? Who knows… I don’t know Adam, but I wish him best of luck in his new endeavor, just like I would if it was your name mentioned in the post.

  15. Mike says:

    Ah, I almost forgot why I don’t read the comments here. Thanks for reminding me.

  16. AJLAUGHALOT says:

    All the comments regarding his weight and appearance have nothing to do with his abilities as a salesperson. I can tell you this, good salespeople stay at companies because they are “good”. Helping a buddy out or taking every possible training course while traveling on the companies dime is not a trait I would associate with a “good” salesperson. Over promise and under deliver is not a trait I would associate with a good salesperson. It seems that he has regressed back to a position more suited to his abilities. I would stay away from adjectives like “great” or “good” though.

  17. Jamie Richardson says:

    I can only speak to what Adam did at LWRC. He was a good sales rep, had good relationships with customers, and was a fun guy to have around the office. Congratulations and good luck Adam! I will see you at Shot next week.
