I plan on going to gander mtn. and another mom and pop place later in the week to see what else I can find.

The American worker is an endangered species, I always buy American guns unless they are military surplus or a gift. I only have a couple that are not made here, and I thought that firearms would be one thing we in America can rely on to be made here. TekGreg was on the money when saying most of what he said. But I believe there is still hope for the firearm industry. There are still a ton of companies working here (especially in the AR field) and we need to support them. I live in Ohio and Ohio is a farming and manufacturing state. We rely on tractors and making car parts, yet many factories are now gone and everyone works retail. So sad, but I believe we can turn it around.

For example even if you have to save up to buy your next pair of work boots buy American. I would rather wear my old boots and jeans for a month or two longer than buy cheap junk. I save and save so I can support an American family putting food on their table. Actually I just found a place that sells 100% made in America jeans and clothes, funny thing is the jeans are a few bucks cheaper than levis!! So spend a little time looking and buy American! I know sometimes you can't but anytime you can do so! I would rather feed an American family buy paying more than saving and letting that money keep a sweat shop open!
Please share the name of the clothing mfg. Even Carhardt is overseas nowdays

I just bought some Thorogood work boots from them (made in Wisconsin) Also there jeans come with a number on the tag that you can type into their site and it shows you just what farm the cotton came from, my jeans cotton came from a farm in Texas. Also all the hardware on the jeans and thread is American.

The store is in a small town called Arcanum, Ohio about 45 min from Dayton. But most of the clothes are made in Texas I think and other American textile mills.


The jeans I picked up are these http://www.allamericanclothing.com/made-in-usa/AA2012.html They have a different styles but I am a levis 569 guy and these are about the same and a few bucks cheaper!

Come on guys just because some products are made in Texas does not mean they are not made by Americans. If that's the case, then yo might as well stop eating, because look at how your veggies are picked and take a trip to a local meat slaughter house and see who's working.

Now back on subject! Semi shotguns made here!!

I have some guy friends that are ASE dealership mechanics. They spend big money on their tool/toolboxes. They are really bummed about tools being made in china now... Mac/Matco/Snapon/Craftsman/Kobalt/Etc...They say they wont pay the big bucks for chinese Snapon...I guess we will see... You should see them light up an go running when they see a Snapon truck. Its like a 7yr old kid when he sees the ice cream truck...lol. From what i can figure out from listening to them...SK is the only tool company left that is 100% USA.
