    So I was just looking at Stinger's website and noticed something really surprising...

    They are actively saying that you should NOT buy the product now.

    Does this mean that it's going to be discontinued or replaced?

    That's possible, but looking at what they say regarding buying accessories ("why would you want to?"), maybe Cliff is fed up with it?

    The comments about the Freedom Laser and Spare Parts don't sound too great either.

    LOL check this out....
    Freedom Laser: Will it be effective against the newer LIDARS? It does look cool either way.

    No I think getting in on one too many bad deals has caused Cliff to get fed up with it..... It was LI all over again for him.

    Last time I talked to him he bit my head off basically. It's a sad situation. I wish him well and hope he finds something else that works better for him.

    Hey I admire the fact that instead of still trying to sell it , he just lays it out there like it is. It's actually true. Why would you want to buy it.

    Yea but I don't believe that was his intention.... It's really a shame. Stinger had potential. But I always found it one of my least favorites. It never felt finished.... ANd all I had was severe problems out of it.

    I'm pretty sure Cliff is the one selling all the dragon guns on Ebay, so maybe he is just walking away from everything and getting out.

    I think they are going out of business as they are already selling all of their guns
