I have to agree. Its a ****ty damn thing, but if I had to choose between keeping "x" number of people employed, but losing "x(x)" number of customers, or letting go of "x" employees, but keeping, or possibly even gaining "x(x) or x(x)+?", I'm definitely going to do what's good for business.

I hate to say it that way. But if they don't move, like they've promised, it can be extremely bad for business. And if they hurt their business bad enough that they have to shut down, THEN who wins?

You guys are talking like theyve already gone back on it. They made that promise because they are willing to do the smart and right thing. And at this point i think they want to move. I have full faith they will follow through. But dont forget they are doing this for us, we need to show our appreciation with our $$. If we show we can support a company who takes risks for us, other WILL follow suit.

I just checked out their Facebook page, where they said they'll continue putting CO residents at the front of the line for deliveries, and that they'll start moving, I quote, "almost immediately". No word yet on where to.

I'd like to know that too. They have plenty of choices for gun friendly states.

They might just wait it out. Looks like new yorks law might be declared illegal because of the way it was rushed through. Something of the sort could happen to Colorados law too. Magpul moving would cost a lot of money, and the price increase will be passed on to consumers.

Gov. Rick Perry has been courting them as well as other firearm manufactures.

My favorite line from Gov. Perry's interview with Glenn Beck yesterday was "Come for the freedom and stay for the jobs!"
