I was working for one of their sister companies at the time. We were Denver based and had a collection western items. In our Lobby we had a pair of Bill Codys .38 Caliber Colts.
TKS London had them removed. We were banned from having firearms in any company cars, trucks etc. I was caught in Nevada by a company man. He found some .357 Ctgs. in my car. I told him and TKS to go F themselves. They needed me more than I needed them. Nothing happened.
TKS was close to the British Crown. The Brits had a major order for handguns. TKS bought S&W to sell arms to England. Once the contracts were filled TKS dumped S&W.
The major income at S&W in those days was parts for Freight Liner transmissons any way.

They used to be called toilet guns. The brits who owned em were into plumbing as well.

I still have a hard time thinking positive about s&w.

Cabelas is going to continue selling AR sporting riles long after the "assault rifle ban" because they are popular in Canada as well and they don't have to worry about AR bans in Canada.

Tomkins owned 182 companies at the time. Most of the stock was in Food Products. They owned many well known Anerican Brands. The folks at S&W were and are fine people. They were just victims of a take over.
Hell look at the number of gun owners who drive Fords. The Ford Foundation dumps millions into gun control. Their money regardless comes from the sale of PUs etc.

Will have to order something from Cabelas to show my support.

More Cabelas! Less Dicks!

Any word on the NY gun mfgs and importers growing a pair and telling NY politicians that they are leaving?

Supposedly Remmy was to do that, meanwhile ATI is silent, and rumor has it that Kimber was behind the 7-rd mag limit.

Anyone know what's happening there?

One of the biggest weapon supporters in the USA cancels all business with Reed Exhibitions.
This is BIG! BIG!
The National Shooting Sport Foundation the host if the National Shot Show and other major shows in the USA announced today they will be withholding and canceling all business from Reed Exhibition Company. This due to there stand on AR-15 and other type rifles not being allowed to be displayed in any show that they operate! This is a major OUCH for Reed! That is some major money that Reed will no longer be making in the USA! I hope they go broke or better yet loose most of their business in the USA! There were over 1600 vendors at the Shot Show this year who support the Show.
God Bless the National Shooting Sport Foundation for a stand to protect our constitutional rights! Way to GO!

I saw in the news today that the show in PA has been cacelled. Exhibitors pulled out en masse. Someone is losing a lot of money on this one.
