    The only one I'm familiar with was the Obregon pistol, which they haven't produced in years.

    I read somewhere those Obregon pistols were very well made and pretty collectible...very similar to a 1911.

    Mendoza is Mexican made. I've seen numerous examples of their Uzi equivalent in the hands of Mexican police and private security.

    Mendoza is a Gun mfg company in Puebla Mexico that puts out high quaiity pistols. Their logo is an apple. I had a fully automatic .22 the size of a LLama .22 auto when I worked down there. Same basic size & shape. It had a selector switch and was blued. It's not real uncommon, I was able to get a spare mag from Brownells. I've seen the same gun engraved and nickled. The .22 auto is the only model I've actually seen and shot.

    I can't remember if it is Sig or Walther that currently makes a .22 rifle in Mex. My buddy has one and it is a pretty good shooter.

    Jimanez I believe was originally out of California but have moved to Nevada. I bought a Jimanez JA9 years and years ago. Less than 100 factory rounds through it and it exploded. Almost took half of my face with it. No customer support whatsoever. I should have known when I bought a 9mm for less than $150 but hey you live and learn. Don't buy Jimanez!!
    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.

    Mexico makes or made a licensed copy of the HK P7. That's pretty impressive and precise machining.

    Actually there are some heck-fire talented artisans and craftsmen in Mexico.
    Some of the finest leather carvers in the world hail from Mexico.
    There are also some incredible saddle makers and Silversmiths in Mexico.
    I know that we're having some real problems on the border these days but, there are lots of good and very talented people in Mexico.
    Let's try not to forget that.
