If you buy used, the money all stays here in the US.

Support Goodwill and Thrift shops, and save money

buying American.

Milsurp is also buying American.

If you buy used you haven't helped anyone who has a job manufacturing guns. You've only helped you and the seller. Who's to say he won't go out and buy a foreign gun with the money you gave him. Buying used anything doesn't keep anybody in a job except after market parts manufacturers and most of them are in china.

I agree, but I wouldn't buy used near as often if the new were made as good as the old.

I try to buy the best value...quality v price regardless of where it's made.

Many of the very best guns I've ever owned have been foreign.
