Default Utah Gun Manufacturer says "No" to Pakistan

The reason? the rifles could be used against US troops.

They turned down a 15 Million $$$ contract because they felt the sale could(its Pakistan so definitly would have) have put American Service members at risk now that is a true patriotic company it has values that many other American companies lack nowadays. Desert Tech thank you and I hope your company flourishes beyond your wildest imaginations if I had $10k laying around I would buy one of your rifles to show my support, but I am just a poor former servicemember.

Why? Obuma will eventually supply them with whatever they want.

That's OK, let Obama bear the guilt. I hope the company gets a flood of orders from American citizens.

When that story first broke it made me so happy. To hear about a company putting people above money. It was very refreshing.

When I also first heard the story I thought it was awesome that a company would do that .
I have been looking into their company to see what products they offer would love to support them

I need to do that. Especially since they're local to me.

I should have seen that coming. And as much as I want one. I can't justify a gun that costs more than my car.
