Maybe we should go easy on "Mike"

It appears he's had a tough life

"The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament". ....Mike Meyer - Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Untill now I have merely watched this thread with interest.... but I can no longer contain myself.










(whew, I feel better now...)


Mikey, you have no idea how big the pile of dog shit you just stepped in is. You may want to quietly go scrape it off you shoe before your masters there at Entreprise realize that you have angered so many people here, many of whom have legitimate and SERIOUS legal beef with 'your' company.

Now, if I may steal a line from CE,

SHUT THE **** UP.

Ok - that was funny. NOt as Funny as Brian Webb's letter to Jen, myself and other vendors (the spelling is better), but definitely funny.

Deconstruction is soooo much fun.

----------------

From the Law Offices of Dewey, Screwum and Howe.

P1. If you are doing anything unlawful, stop

P2. I'm an attorney - FEAR ME! You own a bulletin board and I am pretending you are responsible for the opinions expressed there.

P3. Complaints about Entreprise are so common you have made a sticky - that's just mean!

P4. I havn't found any statement on your board that is not true or legitimate consumer opinion, so I am keeping my complaints vague and non-specific to intimidate you with big lawyer words.

5. Did I mention I'm an attorney? FEAR ME!


Love and Kisses, Mikey.

Much better written than Brian Webb's nastygram

Hey, Mike...

I'd tell you what to do with your company after reading your threat letter, but I'm afraid that the space that I'm thinking of is already filled with your head...

Capiche?

Or do I have to spell it out a little more clearly...?

The Pervasys.com domain is down (appears to have been a production company which was renamed to FAME and Mike Meyers is/was the president/Chairman of Pervasys/FAME), but it's registered, again, to Mike Meyer - mikem@livecam.com.

*** Livecam.com is currently a porn site portal. ***

From your yahoo profile: http://profiles.yahoo.com/pvysguy
Your occupation is listed as: writer/director of inde films, Int-broadcaster

Here's the Michael Meyer listing on IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0583275/

All information was obtained from Godaddy.com's whois database, google search of the term Pervasys and of course, the yahoo id pvysguy.

So somewhere there is a tie betwen religion/theology and porn. I'm trying to figure what it is. Would your clients at your religious broadcasting want a copy of these search results?

I've stepped into an episode of the Twighlight Zone!!!!!!!!

I imagine that neither I nor ANYONE who listens to me (a gunsmith) will ever buy an Entreprise receiver again.

Good grief!!!!!!!!!!!!

The commentary that Entreprise people don't even speak English shows the extent to which critics are willing to go to create confusion in order to glorify their own purposes. It will be interesting to see who is willing to talk about the new product honestly -- or whether you're just going to go back to 1o year old facts until you've bored everybody to death.

With or without this powerful board, Entreprise will have a future manufacturing weapons.

If you want to look to the future then present your product to us and we will pass judgment on it, good, bad, right or wrong.” This is my point, as well. The difference is that my opinions comes with a significant price. Preparing to manufacture thousands of Receivers is an expensive business. Entreprise is on the road to presenting new product, and you have every right to pass judgment on the quality of the product in the present and in the future. I personally believe that products, attitudes and emotions from 5+ years ago are in the past, and should remain in the past.

Beyond any issues of machining accuracy in the past, I would think you’ve got even more right to have even higher expectations in the future. Machining standards, based on computer-assisted programs, are better now than they were in 1993, . . . or even 2000. For example, I think we could all agree that 5+ year old data base products all require substantial upgrading. I can’t imagine a responsible business still chained to 5 year old computer software. If Entreprise based their CAD work on Pentium II’s, 800 MHz chips, and Windows 98 as an OS, then it might be appropriate to discuss the issues with 5 year old product, or the deficiencies in 10 or 13 year old software.

I like my FAL, and you probably like yours. Because I want higher quality and lower prices, I think that defines me as a good consumer. I encourage more people to spend more money to make the kinds of products I like. The more competition there is from the product side, the happier I am from the consumer side. Perhaps some FAL enthusiasts are different.

Based on 10 year old facts, there actually seem to be “FAL enthusiasts” who want to discourage people from investing in new Receiver products. Are the one or two subsisting Receiver manufacturers too much for you? Would you actually prefer to have even fewer suppliers? Do they give you enough money or free/cheap product that you’d prefer to see fewer suppliers?

Would you rather judge 2006 tooling on 10 year old computer programs? Do you think that there might be a correlation between an unappreciative attitude towards manufacturers and the fact that the number of manufacturers willing to serve FAL consumers is shrinking? In a quickly shrinking and highly limited market, a more cooperative attitude might keep the FAL rifle alive a little longer. That is, after all, the point of belonging to a user group, isn’t it?
Captured again...

I'd just hate to lose these pearls of wisdom to some judicious deleting on Mikey's part...

If you know what I mean...

Then again, given what he's said here, he may be incapable of seeing that he's shot himself in the foot and Entreprise in the heart...

That's my opinion anyway, and we all know what opinions are like...

"With or without this powerful board, Entreprise will have a future manufacturing weapons. "

I guess Enterprise chose the "Without this powerful board" option

Just proves that a fool is indeed born every minute

hmmmmmmmmmmmmm...............let's put this in perspective

one of the largest, most popular, highest mebership sites for FAL's in the world.....definately the highest in the USA.....and we are being threatened by a company wanting to sell to the very people that visit here and make the board what it is.......

yeah.............brilliant~!

PS.....GunPlumber - FN74's wife works at the US Customs lab that helps determine country of origin of product by chem / physical analysis. Sure she could take a look at the "USA" made floor plates.

Ookay, so does Mikeydude actually represent the views of Entreprise, or are his missives a freelance effort backed by the evil Monty Python Character, a well known adversary of this fine community?

His stuff is so off the wall that I find it hard to believe anyone without a brian could have concocted it.

I smell something piscatorial..

Over the last few years I have had many customers lament over their Entreprise receivers being out of spec. From bent and rewelded receivers. To being off center, not squared properly in the chamber area, etc........ What made it worse for all of them was Entreprises lack of customer care. I also have a couple of long time friends that have been players in this market for a very long time tell me of getting a royal screwing from Entreprise. Entreprise has steadily developed a reputation in this market that none could envy. Yet this meathead lawyer blames eveybody else. Rather than make things right and move on. Straight from the Brian Webb internet school of how to screw yourself royally.

Not all Entreprise receivers are bad. But enough to gain them a bad rep among both the customer base and players in the industry alike with bad customer care. This thread is a symptom of what's going on.

The FAL market is a shrinking one. Only the best and brightest will survive past a certain point. After this debacle here in this thread I don't see Entreprise lasting very long without some real damge control and real customer care. I don't want to see any player in this market go under. It's not good for biz. But when a company hires a jackass lawyer like this Meyers character that insults and threatens it's customer base, things are going the wrong way for said company. A large part of what customer base you had left is leaving now. And most won't return.

Howard, You better start looking out for your customers. Rather than hiring lawyers to attack them with threatening letters that really show that there is no case. You better be working on better products and especially better customer care. This market can be forgiving if you don't go to far. This last event may have gone too far. When I see people here that at most times are at each others throats............Now in complete agreement.........You got serious problems to deal with.

good point.

it is incomprehensible why the marketing department at Enterprise Arms would enact such a plan as to alienate its target.

mike's two hundred dollar letter has done nothing but damage future sales for Enterprise Arms.

that money would have been better spent in advertizing on this same gun board.

Enterprise Arms is acting as its own worst enemy, having brought this on themselves. damage control.

mike, the time to pop smoke is now.

OK; he can send it here, as the views expressed in my post are mine & mine alone:

The best part of this whole shitfest is that the majority of posts in this thread - prior to Mikeydude's intervention - were pretty positive about EAI's receivers.

This fish is getting rather ripe.........

I can't believe this actually comes from EA. Let alone go public with a large consumer base. Is this really official?

So if EA does not sell receivers based on the lawyer's actions, what does that mean for the lawyer...fire him?

Has EA ever participated on this forum before this?

Actually, Mike (English Mike), I think that you've misinterpreted my meaning with the letter of lawsuit comment...

I only meant that the letter tends to substantiate Mikey's posts here in this thread...

Whether we can believe it or not (and, you're right, this whole Mikey twist is pretty hard to believe), there are certainly people out there who are stupid enough to do this kind of thing. Brain (for one) comes to mind, if you catch my drift...

And the mention of the WR connection here certainly, at the very least, demonstrates that Mikey did not do his homework before sending letters and posting here...

Hey, EAI, I've got an idea...

Sue Mikey for damages...

All those PhDs and whatall that you've got trying to run milling machines and all should be able to come up with some strategy.

Just an opinion...

OK, I have been asked about Mikey prior to this thread.

Jen sent me a copy of his letter threatening litigation. It was wordy, real lawyerly, threatening and such.

My take on the deal: Mikey probably is an investor. They can, if they desire, correct every problem Entreprise has ever had, but one. That one is they do not have Lawrence anymore. The guy could take care of problems. Give him credit for that.

Now, Mikey wants to win by intimidation. He picked the wrong group for that!

And, gunpartsguy is not entirely stupid. The FAL market dwindles on kits. Perhaps Entreprise is going to make the entire thing? Not impossible and a good market exists for DSA after all. So, even thought Mikey appears the fool, let us not kick him, yet. Let us see what big mouth Mikey delivers.

I might fight you over the first one. He may be as good as his bluster. Let us see. You may want one, also.

Grammar, not grammer. And I promise not to sue you until we've finsihed suing Mikey for incredibly poor taste and judgement - thats got to be an offense somewhere.

Yeah, I'l l take note of that - got another buddy working at a firearms forensics lab and a customer in CA who does the same thing.

But it doens't take a rocket scientist to note the rust on the floorplate is absent from the engraving, which strongly suggests it was rusted and beaten up prior to engraving.

A company that would lie and cheat and defraud a custoemr on a $2 retail part is not one with whom I'd do business ever. I'm not saying that cheating a customer on a more expensive part is justified, I'm just amazed at how cheaply some will sell their integity. I am still waiting for Entre'prise to explain this floorplate.

How many remember when Enterprise was trying to intimidate customers with the "buildable parts kits" verbage they were tossing around?

I was ready to order a number of items this week for my next build from Enterprise....UNTIL I read this thread. I will find other sources Mikey.

The Enterprise bookmark has been deleted as well.

Good riddance Enterprise.

Sadly, one of my first receivers was a custom serial numbered one from Entreprise procured quite a few years ago. Fought with the damn thing for quite a while, even after it made a trip back to the factory. Still cant get most dust mount scope covers to fit on it. Was looking to potentially pick up one or two more receivers from them to give them another chance . Screw that, since they wont likely sell the receivers to us hack builders. Hell, only built 10 to 15 or so successfully. Hope the next ones are made of lincoln logs to help us simple minded folk out.

Yes mike, I have seen your product, in fact, as stated above I still own one. Lawrence was a gentleman to deal with and understood customer service, too bad he isnt around to mentor certain new employees.

My typing ain't so good neither - but I differentiate between formal written communication and informal banter.

Only one guy on my ignore list - and thats just because he always posts the same old sappy stuff and it bores me to tears.

Its fun to mock DABTCL because he doesn't know what the words he uses mean - probably on his word of the day calendar - but I generally don't mock his spellin'

Thnis week's Bill words are martinet (which he confused with marionet), bombast, and pschobabble.

I did like Mikey's new word, I had to look that one up.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My name is Mike, and I’m working with Entreprise Arms in business affairs. I believe this company has a very bright future, and I’m proud to be a member of the wonderful team here. The new people coming in to bring Entreprise to the next level are very exciting people, and I hope to be able to talk about them more in the next few months.

The company has plans to go back into manufacturing Type 1 and Type 3 Receivers for several thousand Imbel parts kits we plan to be receiving soon. We will be taking pre-orders for these Type 1 and Type 3 Receivers. These will be sold at very competitive prices.

The company has recently re-certified three of its classic 1911 semi-automatic wide body pistols, and these will be back in production very soon, as well. I’m sure that many of the users here are already familiar with Entreprise’s line of Ghost Ring Sights, which have been very popular with law enforcement, competitive shooters and military personnel.

I’m excited about a new area, which gives me a chance to use my personal background in the film and entertainment industries. With the remarkable collection of Entreprise War Rifles, we will be functioning as a weapons master for the movies. This should give us a chance to expand our purchases and sales in the area of relics and other unique firearms.

It's nice to see the enthusiasm of the gun world population. This is all new to me, but I've done a lot with Hollywood action.

I was a personal manager with a big tv-oriented company in the early 80's, and our clients included Bruce Boxleitner and William Shatner. Then, I was a partner in a law firm, which handled Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal in the late 80's.

I actually made two low budget action films: Bloodsport II and Death Match.

Working around the Entreprise group, I've had a chance to see more of the realities of the fantasies we painted for Hollywood, and that's been an exceptional experience. It's been interesting to watch the Entreprise growth since they brought me and the others on board.

I think that everybody will be pleased with the way that Entreprise is growing and evolving every day. I don't know about everybody's "old experiences" with Entreprise, but I've been watching this group put together a first rate team, and I'm very excited about all of the new production plans.

Posts: 14 Why the Supreme Court doesn't judge a lot of gun law cases

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First, the explanation about the appellate procedure is essentially correct, but let me add a few details. I should start by mentioning that I am not a litigator, and I've never done appellate work. But, as a transactional lawyer, I do know when to and not to use litigators.

When there is a matter of serious litigation, the basic costs are going to be $50,000 - $100,000 just at the trial court level. The only participant who can take a case to the next level would be the losing party at the trial court level.

For an appeal, it is assumed that every significant fact was decided against the LOSING party, but that the losing party should win simply because the trial court relied on a law which is a violation of the Constitution. That's a big burden, and it must be assumed that this step will involve another $100,000+

In the state court system, there's the trial court, the state appellate court, the state supreme court and then the federal supreme court. In the federal court system, there's the federal district court, the court of appeals and then the federal supereme court. By the time most people have spent a few hundred thousand dollars, they're usually more concerned about cutting back on legal fees than they are about making a Constitutional point.

So, by the time a party thinks it's worth several hundred thousands of dollars, and they've already lost 3-4 levels of trial, they've got that big option of seeing if the Supreme Court will grant certiorari and agree to listen to the case. Part of that decision is whether there is a significant Constitutional issue exists, and whether there is substantial public interest in conforming the existing state law to the U.S. Constitutional law.

There is generally a balancing that takes place, and these are the balancing elements. There is a state interest in its state law (i.e., police interest, safety interest, etc.). There is the degree that the state's law is reasonably related to the state's purpose, and the degree to which the state's purpose is significant. On the other than, there is the Constitutional provision. There is the degree that the intrusion on the federal Constititional provision reasonably relates to the intended Constititional purpose, and the degree to which the intrusion on rights is reasonably related to the Constititonal purpose.

If the law still allows Americans to possess guns, but affects matters of time, place or manner, then its intrusion upon the "right to bare arms" could be considered limited. Time, place and manner restrictions frequently come up with freedom of speech or religion. They can limit the time you can speak, the volume at which you can speak, the places at which you can speak . . . so long as you have the right to speak.

So, for anybody to bring a gun rights case to the Supreme Court, several things have to happen: 1) you must have lost 3-4 times in court, and still be willing to spend money; 2) you must have spent a few hundred thousand dollars, and still be willing to spend more; 3) you must convince the Supreme Court justices that there is a substantial Constitutional issue with peculiar value to the justice system; and 4) you must show that the intrustion on the Constitution goes beyond simple time, place and manner restrictions that were enacted by the state for the purpose of "public safety" or "police protection," as defined by the respective state legislatures.

Does anyone know who holds the record for the least number of posts before PISSING off all on the FAL Files?

Good ole Mikey has totally FUCKED his company chances here with 3 posts.

I am guessing that is a new world record here on FAL Files.

Who can calculate the lost business PER Mikey's 3 posts?

LMFAO

ciao Enterprise

big shocker he is wr moderator.

bet a couple hundred phone calls to Enterprise Arms tomorrow morning would get some attention.

especially if the calls refered to Ent-Mikes antics and comments on this board caused the caller to no longer patronize.

i have to agree with b wood. i myself was planning to eventually purchase an inch receiver from entreprise. but after reading this thread and seeing multiple letters that have been sent to falfiles members and related parties about taking action against them. and the fact that he tries to come here and insult the intelligence of many falfilers. it kind of makes me think twice. because as far as i know the people here have given truthful opinions on the products , while i realize some of these are probably from past experiences, like others said produce a better product and prove people wrong. dont threaten them with legal action. im sure he'll find those threats lost him more customers from these forums than the bad reviews. and i would love to see a courtroom full of falfilers.

You know Mikey says he is a transaction lawyer, not a litigator. I kind of figured that with his nice fancy, wordy letter.

He seems real smart but not very bright. Lots of 'transaction' lawyers are that way. Kind of like the Scarecrow in the Wizard, he now gets paid big bucks for deep thinking.

And a moderator on WarRifles!

It is all making sense now, non-sense but a form of sense after all.

This may be his first venture into public relations. He has a lot to learn.

I think you may have made a typo here DABTL

Did you mean "This may be his first venture into PUBIC relations? Judging from Mikey's comments....I think that word may be more fitting to his behavior.
