    Rumor mongering: Remington ceases production

    Got this off a firearm mailing list:
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    A friend sent me this. I've heard nothing. Anyone?

    This is an email from a friend of mine. Have any of you heard
    this??????

    Hey Guys,

    I was in a "Dick's Sporting Goods" store this afternoon, looking
    for ammo, just to see what was & wasn't avaliable.

    In talking to one of the clerks, I was tolld that they had gotten
    a confrence call from the chain's main buyer on the East coast,
    telling them that Remington had ceased production of all C.F.
    rifle & handgun calibers as of 3-31-09.

    Have you heard anything like this ? Seems that a large cutback
    like that would be all over the news media, unless it is another
    attack on the 2nd Amendment by the democommies in D.C.

    Also, the same person told me that they were told that Federal
    would be doing the same thing this week.

    Any input, or way to confirm/dispute this ?

    If they do or did then mom and pop companies will just take their place.

    I do not think this is true you would hear the NRA all over this as if it was ants on blood.

    Not to mention that there has been no media coverage or press releases or anything from the Fascist headquarters in DC that stated anything of the nature.

    And did that dicks rep, who probably hates guns but got assigned to the counter due to massive layoffs, mention what remington and other companies are going to do to make up for the loss in revenue in cutting off their major resource for profit, civilians?

    I would worry about this.

    I seriously doubt it.

    The Remington plant here in Lonoke has just added some high dollar machines that produce .22 rimfire ammo to keep up with the demand.

    They are running 3 shifts around the clock. If they stop at all...and they do...it is only to "tool up" for a different caliber.

    Now if you told me that they are stopping to move in some new machines or replace some older ones with newer ones, I would believe that.

    Feel better now?

    C.F. ? Center Fire?

    All Center Fire?

    Phaleeze!

    Ceased all production of the low profit margin, uber high volume junk sold at most of these big box stores?

    I suppose it would have been too much effort for you to call Remington and confirm before posting this. Sure, why not post it? Reminds me of the idiots that keep fowarding emails about the sick kid who wants xmas cards, or all the other urban legends listed on snopes.com: Urban Legends Reference Pages

    No, I figured, correctly it seems, that this would separate those with a sense of humor, from those that have other motivations.

    I certainly hope that this is not the case. It would take a serious set of circumstances for an ammunition provider to make such a decision. Whether it's accurate or not is a little disheartening! I would hope they keep producing their much needed ammunition.

    Well, let's all wait & see!

    Don't believe it. The name of the game is money. Ammunition is in high demand for the military and for civilian use. Last time I looked Remington wasn't running an altruistic operation. They are making money, lots of money.

    Sad that these rumors continue to come up time and time again.

    The anti's are probably starting the rumors and are watching and laughing.

    Maybe a lot of the price gaugers are afraid that prices will come down again. After all, the "administration of doom" hasn't actually done anywthing against guns yet. So they need to spread some FUD to keep the profits going. The worst case scenario for them is that Obama totally ignores all the gun issues.
