Could someone who knows for sure please clarify? (C3 maybe)?
The only time it can be issued and not manufactured here, is if the ONLY place manfacturing it is out side of the states. I believe the at-4 is one of the only things really made out side of the states and issued on a wide scale, along with some optics, I could be way wrong though.

Maybe if I was visiting family in Athens, Greece I could send some international love, but sadly the protesters burned down the local Starbucks...
I grew up in Chicago and live in the NW Suburbs and feel the same way. If you talk about guns it is quietly with people you know have them. 95% of the people around here think you are crazy if you have a gun.

I had a great time at the range this Saturday and can't talk about it with work people because they look down on "those crazy gun people".

Bill Moyers is one of the Left Wing hacks from very Liberal Austin, Txs. LBJ loaded the slate with his New Dealers. They were the most rabid antigun zealots to ever lead the nation. Bill Moyers was involved in the passage of the LBJ Gun Control Act of 1968. This group also established the BATF from the old "Reveners" force. For Moyers to claim he is balanced is BS. LBJ set up NPR Radio to get out the Left Wing reports. After all these years Moyers and NPR are after our 2nd rights.

I understand your reasoning, BUT, maybe you should look at it as your chance to change someones mindset about " crazy gun owners ", by example. Let people know you shoot, safely and responsibly, in my experience most people who don't "like" guns, simply don't know anything about them. They view guns as dangerous as well as gun owners. Change their minds, one person at a time. Show people your not a maniac gun crazed killer, just a person who lives in their community who enjoys their 2nd amendment RIGHT. Reminds of a childhood song "this little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine". Keeping it to yourselves only fuels the antigun flames, because it leaves all the information they hear to come from what they hear on tv, or misinformed peers. Let it shine, let it shine. If not one mind at a time......

I was down in Ogden, Utah on V-day. I didn't see any big deal on guns at Starbucks. Utah is different. They have great gun freedom down there. The problem for Starbucks is the folks in Utah are going to Ban Coffee.

I got my obligatory cup of joe at Starbucks on the 14th. Hopefully they did not see a decline in sales at all. With a little luck, they saw a spike.

The number of U.S. uniforms and flags being made in China and labeled U.S.A. made is not known. These items routed thru Vietnam and Mexico to China. The Obama government allows minority suppliers to avoid made in U.S. rules and sell to the American military. Of course you should cuss the NRA for buying from China and give Obama an excuse? OK Obama defenders jump in here.

It appears that VD (Valentine's Day ) went by without any gunners-vs-anti-gunners incidents, and without any retardos getting into macho-man gunfights, which should say volumes about the kind of people who own and carry guns. I doubt the liberal media will make any notice of that, though.
