Gun Makers Flee Hostile States

From AL.com:

Remington has publicly opposed New York’s passage of the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act, which restricts gun ownership and sales. A Military Times report Friday said Remington’s decision to move to Alabama will not affect its largest facility in Illion, N.Y., but one union leader is already speaking out.

Remington, Khar and ATI Bail on New York

All three gun companies are in the process of leaving New York state because of the “SAFE Act” and taking their tax dollars with them.

The Washington Free Beacon has the story:

“It is a law forced on rural New Yorkers by a liberal elite who opposes the principles of the U.S. Constitution,” Hempel said by email. “The majority of the state wants a hands-off, non-intrusive government, which does not interfere with their right to bear arms or crush business with harmful regulation.”

Remington 870 or Mossberg 590? Which shotgun is best for you?

If you surf around gun forums you’ll see that “discussions” about “the best” shotgun can get pretty emotional. It’s like guys arguing about Fords or Chevys; not always objective.

Here’s a collection of observations by shotgun users that I found helpful, not just guys ranting, but helpful information that may make your decision a bit easier.

As always, understand this is opinion and anecdotal information, bear that in mind. We’re not making any claims on accuracy of info, just passing along some discussion.

Remington 870: America’s Choice For A Defensive Shotgun

Is buying American, supporting American companies, important to you?

Then consider the Remington 870 as a strong option for home defense.

We suggest you consider the Remington 870 first and foremost because it is a quality, reliable weapon with a long history of dependability. But it’s also made right here in the USA. You can pick up cheaper shotguns, such as the NEF (made in China), Charles Daly (made in Turkey) or other foreign made, lower priced shotguns. But when you’ve got one of the best options made right her, the Remington 870, why not support a business in your own country, not China or Turkey!

Home Defense Remington 870

“On the list of firearms held as suitable for home defense, the nearly undisputed king is the 12 gauge pump action shotgun. Whether it’s the unmistakable noise of a round being chambered or the (rightly or wrongly) perceived massive stopping power, the big bore shotgun has a respected place in self defense.

The same things that make it suitable for police use make it desirable as a home protection weapon. Heavy firepower over a short range, coupled with an intimidating visual image and ease of operation.

In this article, a typical 12 gauge pump action shotgun will get a simple conversion to a home defense weapon. In this case, a Remington 870 Express, but any decent quality hunting shotgun can be drafted to house duty with a few changes.”
