    These are built in Japan I believe. Anyone know exactly where? I'm curious if there might be a decrease in supply for a while due to all the problems in Japan right now.

    And yes, they have been affected. :(

    EDIT: I should amend that. I have no "official" word that they will be delayed or anything, but Legacy Sports is the chief importer of Howa and they have said that they anticipate there being a lull in production.

    With the devestation I can't imagine everyone just showed up on Monday and started dusting off the CNC gear. :(
