Nah ... was just a bit of almost-trivial I was mentioning in how we refer to ourselves. We still love the TRSI folks. smile

My curiosity's peaked. Am I to assume that TRSI is a parent company of RightStuf?

When Rich said "TRSI folks", he was referring to those that still call it TRSI (ie us).

So there is no longer a company entitled TRSI?

They just changed their name a little.

When I first started shopping at Right Stuf (**points to sig**), it was called "The Right Stuf International" (TRSI for sort).

Over the years, Right Stuf changed their business model little by little and haven't been really living up to the "International" part, so they decided to drop it.

If the company that I know and love would rather be called RightStuf, then RightStuf it is. If I can remember anyhow. BTW I stumbled upon this little article at RightStuf: http://www.rightstuf.com/rssite/main/aboutRightStuf/ It's pretty interesting.

I'll continue to call them TRSI. I'll just translate it as "The Right Stuf, Inc." instead of "The Right Stuf International" from now on. wink

Before I saw it posted here, I thought TRSI did stand for The Right Stuf, Inc.

I can't recall where, but my first encounter with TRSI the I was for International
It May have been from a Web Search or something, like I said I canít recall ???

Itís like here in Louisville, Kentucky, the Airport is now ( for a while now ) called Louisville International Airport.
Because we have the UPS Hub here ( I think the Main one ) and it does have International Flights.

But to me and a whole lot of other people it will always be Standiford Field, we think the International thing is a joke.
