Don't worry folks! I'm not sure what I can tell you, so I won't say a thing. Here's a picture from out side about 5 minutes prior, actually two. That white stuff is hail.. got a ton of water. Very fast

It's this guy \/
It's kinda funny, I know the initials, "pag" because I know his name, but I can never remember the "j17". Petty, but I didn't want to embarrass myself by getting it wrong!

I don't know which sounds like more of a dream job.

And to think, Talon just opened up a manufacturing plant nearby my hometown in Mississippi. I've never heard of them, and I think they're relatively new to the scene, but Mississippi's governor is really giving them props for bringing in a lot of jobs.

I would've been applying for sure if I were still there.

Oh, where in MS?
Besides MS Auto Arms, I didn't think there were any big name gun companies. I think Magpul considered MS, when they were movin.

Bryant has been BEGGING magpul, Beretta, and Remington to move to Mississippi.

I'm friends on his official Facebook page, I'll see if I can look up that location for you.

Okay, it don't seem as big as Bryant was making it out to be, at 10 production workers initially, and moving up to possibly 50 in the future, but it's a start. To me, after reading the article, I just get the impression of red jacket wannabe's. And red jacket ain't nothing special.
