Store-Front Mercenary Shops!

Why not? They've already got the name recognition.

Of course, let's remember just what Blackwater's name is recognized for. Allegations in clude the murder of 17 Iraqi civilians; using child prostitutes; arranging for a corrupt Iraqi politician to break out of jail; hiring 60 or so of Pinochet's old crew. That kind of stuff.

Still, what is the old PR saying? "It doesn't matter what they write, as long as they spell your name correctly." So if you're in Fayetteville NC or Salem CT, drop into one of the opening-soon Blackwater Pro Shops. Or shop online. As Danger Room points out, they'll sell you anything from a beer glass to a rifle.
