This is actually why I will never buy nor recommend a Para Ord product.

They were founded and HQ'd in Toronto, Canada. They haven't done dick to help our friends north of the border with their gun laws.

A few years back they rebranded and moved to the states to avoid the taxes on imported weapons, but that doesn't undo 20 years of doing nothing for the people you were employing to actually own the products they were building.

I'm with Dan actually. I don't have much need for anything else in the safe to be honest so my purchases will be down to shiny kit syndrome anyways, and that is easy to tailor to American made companies that employ good people and pay their taxes to gun friendly states.

It's called taxes my friend. They pay a lot in taxes and that makes the Dems very happy.

...doing nothing for the people you are employing...

Which is what the auto industry has been doing. Ford hires people in my area that max out at $14 an hour. With rent/ mortgage, insurance, gas, electricity, etc. who can buy a new car on that wage?

Ruger has facilities in Prescott Arizona and they have been very supportive of the NRA since Bill Ruger is gone. There have been rumors of Colt moving because of new restrictive state laws.

http://www.bradycampaign.org/xshare/stateleg/scorecard/2010/2010_scoring_system.pdf

Connecticut is 5th on the Brady list behind CA, NJ, MA and NY.

That cuts out Colt, Charter Arms, Marlin, Ruger, Stag Arms and Winchester plus several others that I didn't list.

Savage Arms is based in MA.

Kahr Arms (Magnum Research, Auto Ordnance), Kimber are based in NY

Remington is an interesting one, their HQ is in NC and the Group that holds them (Freedom Group) is also HQ'd in NC but Cerberus Capital Management which owns it is based in NYC so where do they fall?

Should the headquarters be located in what I consider a firearms "unfriendly" state, I will not purchase the article.

A small list currently includes: Springfield Armory, Smith&Wesson, ArmaLite, McGowen, Forster Products, and Rock River Arms.
Distributors will be added.

My list will include more as time goes on.
Why tell us ? Far better to tell the legislatures/governors of states whose gun pogroms you find offensive. Wouldn't hurt to send a copy to the mfgs in those states too ! >MW

I own a Winchester. Good thing it's a '43. It was made in CT of course.

I don't really understand what you are trying to do here. I can't see it helping. If you mean the taxes thing, that sort of works. They then also will push the state they are paying taxes in to be more gun-friendly, right?

It could be that the reps from those companies are the only light left in those anti-gun states. They may be what keeps that state from slipping over the edge into the real point of no return.
