All of us as gun owners need to start looking at the barrel or the receiver stamp whenever we buy a new gun. If it has a stamp from any state in the NE or far left coast state then it needs to stay on the shelf.
If they want to move to PA, that's great. But I for one won't buy anything that has any ties to any NE state.

Up here we have Windham Weaponry and are a gun friendly state. Why does Maine and New Hampshire get lumped with all of the NE as anti gun?

This will be considered a victory by the left wing. A small non-union handgun company will be a trophy for the Democrats. However, the big Union manufacturing co. Remington Arms is staying. Obama moved to give Remington Arms a mega-million military contract. This was to protect the Democratic labor unions at Remington. That big "Shadow" you see in the east is Remingtom. Yes, it is Remington giving civilian gun buyers the big finger.

Vermont is really really pro-gun too.

I'm not big on boycotts and I'm not going to call for one. However, I recently passed on a purchase for a Remington 870 and their 1911 clone simply because I feel like they did give us a big middle finger.

It's not just that they're staying in NY despite NY basically telling the rest of the country that firearms are bad, but then to turn around and take a military contract just feels...wrong.

Sure, it's just business, I get that. However, they have made it clear to me who they consider their most important customer. Good for them. Plenty of others to choose from.

I agree Boycotting seldom works. That is why Remington is making a big mistake. Remington decided to Boycott American gun buyers and remain in New York and receive tax dollars from Obama.

Boycotting doesn't work, sure. But what is just giving them more of our money going to do?

That's why they are not getting any more of mine. I'm not boycotting them, I'm just taking my business elsewhere since they've made it clear I am not a priority market for them.

I appreciate your loyalty but that's kind of like cutting off your nose to spite your face...

Sturm Ruger-NH...(gun friendly but Northeast nonetheless)

Kahr, Springfield, Smith and Wesson, Savage-MA

Colt, Mossberg-CT

Remington-NY

Henry-NJ

I'm sure there's more than that but that's all I could come up with without looking it up...

Really limits your choices IMHO...
