I have exactly zero Mossbergs. If I did get one, it would be Texas made. Welcome aboard!

I wonder how much of the population of Austin would agree with you. My daughter lives there. Liberal Mecca.

A lot of these manufacturers have been moving south, and not just because of more favorable gun laws -

If you look at the average manufacturing wage paid in CT, NY, NJ etc it is considerably more than what is paid in AL, KY, TN.....most parts of TX. Typically going from union to non-union environment and a lower cost of living area. In other words, all sorts of companies are making these moves, not just firearms manufacturers. Businesses get tired of over regulation, high corporate taxes.......

Interesting how (relative) freedom to operate your business, low-taxes and 2A go together. As opposed to what we are getting used to seeing in places like the northeast US: high taxes, high regulation, high unionism, gun control out the wazoo.................
