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

Hi Dillinger, Just wanted to point out that Cerberus is headquartered right in New York. The founders of the company are good American conservatives and Dan Quayle (our former VP) who, contrary to the liberal sponsored media image, is a brilliant guy is their Chairman of their Global Investments Group.

They contribute handsomely to conservative and Republican candidates. They do make investments globally but bring the profits right back to the USA. They have done a lot to bring antiquated inefficiently run gun companies into the 21st century, streamlining operations and funding research and development. I would go as far as saying that at no other time in American history have we had as many option in American made, high quality, reasonably priced firearms, specially coming from their group of companies, as we do today.

Holy ****!!!

Savage, except for their shotguns.

A lot of the Beretta 92/96 line. Some, not many, still made in Italy.
