Default How close is HK to Bankruptcy.

Been reading quite a bit about HK's money problems. Are they in real trouble? Or more Internet BS.

Hk caters to government sales and refuses to put out civvy version of their most desired products in the states. The ones they do sell are so politically correct on the neutered side they flop harder than jim carrey at the box office...

Doesnt take much of a genius to see its only a matter of time.

Don't get me wrong HK makes some great firearms but I'm laughing inside at them. They try to be sooo PC with the libs that they deserve what they get. Honestly I could care less if they fail. Someone good who believes in the people's right to bear arms will probably buy them if they do.

I read the article and this was posted at the bottom.


This situation is unlikely to have any effect on H&K-USA.
