Days after winning the coveted NRA 2011 Golden Bullseye Award for “Rifle of the Year” by Shooting Illustrated magazine, the Bushmaster Adaptive Combat Rifle (ACR) has garnered yet another honor. In a hotly contested match with arch rival arms maker Slytherin, Bushmaster’s ACR managed to out perform and take this years Golden Snitch.
Rival executive Lucius Malfoy, CEO of Slytherin Arms was clearly disappointed with Bushmaster receiving the award. “You’re supposed to catch the golden snitch, not vaporize it with a few hundred 5.56mm rounds” complained Malfoy. When we get back home and consider the evaluation process, we may decide to send an owl with a formal protest. Does anyone know the rookery address for Shooting Illustrated?”
Bushmaster CEO Albus Dumbledore offers the following explanation for the recent successes. “While we were excited about winning the Golden Bullseye Award, that wasn’t as big a deal. I mean, I could have hit a stationary bullseye at 100 yards with Weasley’s broken wand” stated Dumbledore. “Now the golden snitch was another matter. Try blasting that sucker out of the sky with a wand. That’s where the Bushmaster ACR really came in handy. I’m really glad we brought the extra magazines.”
