Now if we can just get Colt, Smith & Wesson, Stag, Magpul.......and a few others we will be better off......Cant think of a better state than South Carolina home of American general and statesman Christopher Gadsden designer of the Gadsden / "Dont tread on me" flag

Good for them. Where is PTR currently located?

Edit: Which non-2A friendly state is PTR located?

Connecticutt will get the same sort of lesson as Colorado. Not only is MagPul moving out, many hunters are already saying they won't take their money to Colorado, and "just shooters" won't go there on vacation.

Welcome to South Carolina, PTR!

You are in good company. We are also home to FN Manufacturing and Palmetto State Armory.

Good for SC. I know that Gov. Perry of TX was pushing hard for PTR to move to Texas, so that was a good "get" for y'all.
