    Does such a thing exist...

    I would love to support the American economy by buying a quality American pistol/s for ccw. I define this as parts and assembly being done in the good, old U.S. of A. Is there such an animal on the market or is that an unrealistic expectation? Thoughts and input welcome.

    Depending on what you want, the Keltecs are homegrown. Florida, I believe. I can't speak for the 9mm, but my .380 has been reliable, but is not my primary carry piece.

    Before we get out of hand...Springfield is a USA company, but most (all?) are made elsewhere. My XD, for example, was made in Croatia. I believe that many (most?) listed here are similarly actually made overseas. The Keltec is actually manufactured in FL.

    Negative.

    Springfield imported the original version of your XD (the HS2000) from Croatia. I believe its the only gun that Springfield imports .The rest are produced here. The plant is in Genesco,Illinois.

    Glock has had a factory in Smyrna, Georgia since 1983 to produce guns here.

    Ruger has at least 2 plants, one in New Hampshire and Arizona.

    Sig builds most of its gun in New Hampshire and imports some from Germany.

    Colt still builds handguns in Hartford,Connecticut.

    Kimber is located in Clackamus,Oregon.

    It seems that there are still alot of companies that produce handguns located here in the U.S.


    Are we still getting out of hand?

    Dont forget the new guy on the block, SCCY. They only make one gun right now, but its a polyframe for CC, 9mm 10+1 mags. I have a friend that has one and he loves it. Also a Florida weapons manufacturer. They also are pretty fair in price.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Just counting handguns we own: Ruger, Colt, Les Baer, USFA, S&W, Seecamp, Kahr, Kel-tec, North American Arms, and SIG. Yes, SIG, which, depending on the model, has more USA-made parts than many "American" products.

    The last Springfield 1911 I owned was assembled in the USA, which does count for something, but the major components were made in Brazil. The XD is definitely of Croatian origin.

    I personally own more Rugers and USFAs than anything, and both of these company's current products are 100% made in the USA. USFA did start out using imported parts, but shifted to making their own parts in-house.

    To drift into long guns, we have Remington shotguns, and rifles made by Ruger, USRAC/Winchester, Marlin, and my AR is a Colt upper on an S&W lower, with Rock River and JP Enterprises internals.

    Our only totally non-USA handgun is a Walther PP. Our only non-USA rifles are Miroku and Rossi lever rifles.

    ...
    Springfield 1911s are assembled here, but major components of are NOT US made. Not sure if any of them are. Of course, all XD's are Croatian made, stem to stern.

    Don't know the situation on their long guns.

    American made guns I have:
    Remington 870 shotguns and .22 Fieldmaster
    rifle.
    Ruger SP101 revolver and 10/22 rifle.
    Charter Arms .38
    Kahr PM9
    H&R .22 revolver
    Cobra .38 derringer

    Foreign made:
    Mossberg Plinkster .22 rifle
    2 XD 9mm's .

    The vast majority of Springfield 1911's are totally made in Brazil. All of them start there, and the upper end guns are assembled in the US.

    Kimber is in Yonkers, NY.
