Not missing them any more than they miss the target. Just kidding. I have the predecessor (Grendel P-12) but have no desire to own a Kel-Tec, but to each his own.

There was no mention regarding "if" they were to your liking... or not. I didn't see Davis Mfg. anywhere either. Now if you want to talk hard-core POS, Davis qualifies. LOL

Mark, that is a good point. I will concede "True". However, you have to define what you are looking for.

As an example, Remington, and several other firearm related companies, are owned by Cerberus Capital, who have offices all over the globe. Money from the companies owned by Cerberus, I am sure, if funnelled all over the place to take advantage of markets here and abroad.

Are the weapons being made here important? Or the money that you are spending being kept here more important?

All right, all right. You are absolutely right. I should not have chimed in with a personal opinion. I was, however, "Just Kidding".

How about STI, SV, Freedom arms, Bond arms, Thompson/Center. Glock US. I believe SIG makes some of their guns in the US.

Yo'... I'm just having some fun at your expense. We've been way too seroious here with this bail-out crap and then there's ol' butt-wipe trying to steal our guns.

Jeeeeeze, JD.
You're making this really freakin' complicated for me... I'm still trying to figure out the definition of "IS" for Willie Klinton. Then I had to figger out the value of a thing that turned out to be a surplus of nothings disguised as a something. Then... I had to mash a freakin' Taser into a freakin' 45. I don't have a freakin' 45! I'd like to have one. Did I tell you... that me and Tony Soprano are freakin' buddies???

LOL, smakin' some chick on the a$$

Really!? Can you get me an audience with Tony? I would LLLOOOVVVVVEEEE to be Made and I am sure if I could just get a few minutes of his time I could explain to him how valuable a member of the group I can be.

No worries Mark - You can even have an extra extra month on the R & D.

Besides, if you are doing this to SUPPORT your country, there are better ways. Like buy any popular firearm and spend money on custom parts, made right here in the USA. many upgrade/mod companies are small start-ups from small towns across the USA. Or, take it to your local gunsmith and have him tweak it. You know he is just a small businessman/woman trying to make ends meet.

Or better yet, buy any gun you want, and forget about buying american or not. Instead, focus on spending time doing community service, helping out at the local youth club. Set up a firearms safety course. Get young people motivated to do something positive with their life...

This way you won't feel guilty about collecting the firearms you like.
