I had a brief but irritating email discussion with someone who represents the Felk pistol company. I thought I'd share the conversation with all. Please, let me know if this individual reflects his company and the Felk products:
Original email to Felk - 10/19/2005
I understand you're the contact for the FELK MTF in the USA. If this is true, who sells these handguns? Unfortunately, the www.felk.com.au website has very, very little information about their product(s). One example of ineffective information on the website is absolutely no information about the switch slide/barrel combinations. At least the website identified you as a contact. So, where can I find a very good description of the FELK MTF and who sells the handguns?
Thanks for your time/information!
Follow-up Response From Felk - January 07, 2006
Dear Felk Inquirer:
I must explain the delay in responding to your inquiry. And I apologize. See, the Felk pistol is designed to fire four calibers off the same frame, by fingering a release lever and sliding one off and one on, and change magazines. So you could fire 9mm, .357, .40 and .45.
This has been a difficult trick to accomplish on a manufacturing tolerance basis. We have tightened and tightened, and think we have it. Dropped the .357 for now. Please see the attachment in MS Word, illustrated, which explains our offer and I hope you will order and enjoy the flexible Felk.
Sincerely, Brian Edwards at Felk Felk@verizon.com;firstname.lastname@example.org
My follow-up Response To Felk - 1/7/2006
Thank you for finally responding to my question that was sent over four months ago. If your delay in responding to my question represents your products, I don't think I want any Felk product.
Felk had the gaul to respond to the above email:

Dear Sir: Your logic is faulty. Is that a quick enough answer for you?
The Felk team
With that jerk's last response, I guess I decided to let him have it with both barrels:

The fact remains the same, "Dear Sir," you took many, many months to answer a simple question that initiated this email conversation. Therefore, you fail to examine facts and you're responding out of emotion. Also, your second response is a second indicator that your organization is not worthy. As previously stated, I do not want any Felk products.
I suggest you refrain from any additional responses. I definitely plan to publish the email responses I have already received from your organization. Be sure to look at this email conversation in a future NRA publication.
Have A Wonderful Day!
Has anyone else had to deal with this sort of crap from Felk or any other firearm company?
