At this point, a simple note to say something along the lines of ... "Howdy; great to be here ... and keep those cards and letters coming because we are interested in your opinion" ... that would be nice.
They do not consider bonding to be a corporate mission or imperative. They are not friends....they are a business first, last and always. To talk openly and in a true participative manner opens them up to issues they do not wish to discuss as well as potential legal commitments. I'm certain their attorneys have warned against any public discourse that has not been reviewed first..It appears to me that Walther is not interested a bit in the opinion of its loyal customers and users in this forum. Except for fleeting comments of other walther employees in the past three years, really I cannot understand their failure to bond.
To help to clarify:Where did you learn that bit of mis-information?
