Re: Am/Should I be mad???

It's real simple for me.You do have a right to be mad.I bought a GP mount when the Munch mounts were available also.I knew who designed the original and who made the copy.To me it's a matter of principal,one man put in the hard work and another just made a copy.Yea I know business is business and it...
