I wonder if Colt will decide to leave Connecticut. They have reportedly considered doing so before.

ChasHam, can you provide any input other than rewording the title of the link you provided? Otherwise, this is just a drive-by posting.

Sounds like the Headquarters and manufacture of semi-auto rifles/handguns is moving to Tennessee while revolver and some components will continue at the old place.

CZ recently acquired them, so there's a good chance they'll consolidate operations in Kansas.

They are also closing some other operations and selling off the plastic injection molding business in CT (the part that did outside work for other companies) The molding section that did S&W stuff will be moving to TN.

Not really sure what your comment means-- what other input would you expect?

I provided a link to an NRA news story dated today that fully documents the short self-explanatory title. I strive for clarity, brevity, conciseness and focus in my posts. i think I achieved that

It matches the definition of a drive-by post:

https://thefiringline.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=418983

What's the definition of a cut-n-paste post (another form of a drive-by)?

One that contains a link and no meaningful commentary on the link.
One that contains a sentence or two from an article (cut-n-pasted) and no commentary on the article. Entire articles are banned by TFL's copyright policy.
One that contains both a link and a sentence or two from an article, but has no commentary.

The above applies equally to individual posts within a thread, or to the starting post of a thread itself.
But since mods are replying to the thread and not closing it, it must be an Ok drive-by.

Fascinating——-not every leader in America is a coward. The ordnance hub has left the east coast of this country. I plan on buying an $&W based upon principle.

IMO,it seems like sound business decisions by S+W.

No state hostile to the firearms industry should enjoy the jobs and revenue provided by a firearms manufacturer.

It seems like Magpul has recovered from leaving Colorado. Good for them!

Here's a primer. It's in the Forum Rules tab. It further explains why providing a link doesn't cut the mustard.
