This is exactly the point I have been trying to get across! We have to 'live' our commitment! Those who are in business are there to make a profit so for them to do something based on 'right' rather than profit is a BIG DEAL! I personally can't afford their products, but I would ask those who can to support them!

I have followed Jim Wilson's life and I admire him for standing up to the plate. I also have several of his products and one day I will have his .38 Super(drool). However, I stand by my original statement (modified slightly) "How many of the OP's LISTED people or organizations have the budget to buy from WC."

It would be nice if glock would be next to do something like this. Seeing as how most LEO's carry glocks.

Their ARs, while not exactly cheap, are pretty much in the same range as some of their premium competitors (Larue Tactical, LMT...).
How about a Match grade barrel for your Glock?
Wilson sells more than premium 1911s. Visit their site, you might be surprised at the quantity of stuff they sell.
Quoted or truth. Maybe buying completed guns is out of reach for anyone looking for parts they are by far not out of reach. PDs and other agencys have armors that work on officers gear. So they have one less place to look for parts.

I don't think it's just marketing. There are companies that did sell a lot to PD or other gov agency that wont now. I'm sure Barrett made a lot of money off law offices that they don't now. I'm glad to see any other company that is willing to join the cause.
The best way to hurt a company is by attacking their wallet. So the "other companies" willing to cross the picket line so to speak should be noted and not supported by the civilian sector. While companies that are willing to stand with the people should get our support. Sure there will be someone that step in for the feds, but all wont. And it's those companies that I will do business with in the future. The civilian gun market us huge. I don't think I'd want to lost that business to keep one gov contract. It has to effect profit.

doesnt matter.

taking the stance of no sales to national socialists is what matters.

BTW, yesterday I bought two of his mags for my 1911's.

Another BTW I also watch religiously the show he sponsors, "Tac TV" with Larry Vickers and Ken Hackathorn, my favorite firearms personalities.

I think it is more about the solidarity then anything else. Not many could, but you might find some either high enough in the state's food chain, or with their own personal wealth who could afford to. Now they have to find a way to do it out of state.

Good for Wilson.

The large publicly traded companies like Ruger and S&W would be open to stockholder law suits if they did this, so we need the smaller, self owned companies to do so.

Now we need Kimber to move out of NYC, and Remington to move out of New York State. Bennelli to move out of Maryland would be good also.
