Hey guys,

My buddy and I have been working on a rifle system for the last three years and have come up with a final product. It works exceptionally well. We took a mulie buck at 834yrds this last fall with it.

We want to market this thing, but have decided that we should get a patent on it. We can not afford the patent process. I want to know what you all think about getting an investor, and is anyone here interested in making an investment?

Steve

    Steve, all i can tell you is a patent is only as good as your ability to defend it. Lesson learned the hard way.

    I have been told this before. So we thought about just going into marketing it. But then I do not want to be that guy that says "That was my design, they stole it".

    What happened to you? If you don't want it public send me a pm.

    Anybody here that has gone through the patent process that can shed some light about what it takes?

    Steve
