This is a discussion on Olympic Arms now takes a stand against States enacting gun bans restrictions within the General Firearm Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; Story below Olympic Arms to New York State – Take Your Business Elsewhere...

Well now. If the companies making the money off New York State said screw you to the powers that be in NY it seems the business will go as usual argument is making a hard left turn. Thats what now two large suppliers of weapons saying ehhh you crossed the line this time bub
Emails sent to smith Glock and Sig as suggested. I think ill point out to my reps in Ky that should they let this play out here they may well be shooting Hi points in the near future if they can get them.

I hope other gun companies join suit and boycott NY.
Yay, I found my next choice for an AR. (If prices are ever sane again)

Springfield xd 45, Sig Sauer SP2022(9mm),Remington 700(.308), Bushmaster xm15,...and lots of ammo for all of 'em.
Interesting way to turn the tables. Imagine if ALL gun companies refused to sell to states that enacted anti 2-A laws?
I guess those states would have to get their weapons from gun shows.
Jean that would be fun to watch. I can see the prices go up as they approach the tables.

Cool. Now let's see a company of consequence do it. One that, say, supplies the majority of law enforcement and civilian sales in said state(s).
Still can't pay me to buy an Oly.
Excellent move. I think we should all boycott New York, quite frankly.
Just sitting here waiting for Remington to leave :) Then things will start to pick up here in NY....
My entire family is from NY and I haven't been back in years and years. Won't go. Love the people and the land, hate the government.
Happened to CA several years back when they enacted the .50 cal ban... Barrett stopped doing business with them when they attempted to place an order. Even told them if they sent in any for service they would be confiscated.
All i have to say is good more for us...
and I wonder if the police have turned in their high cap Mag's yet for their new 7 rounders... We could use a few more used high caps on the market now supplies are running short.

Could you enlighten me about FL's pistol laws?
Do you need a permit to purchase a handgun there, or just to carry.
I know of someone that took their guns to FL not using an FFL, but they let their CT pistol permit expire and didn't renew. Now I'm wondering if there's a way to get the guns that they have, mostly pistols..to an FFL in FL and then sent to an FFL in NY to have them put on my permit...
BTW police are exempt in NY. :)
Police are not exempt according to the new laws.
Florida is a concealed-carry, shall-issue state. Pay the license fee, follow directions on the application, mail it in, and receive your concealed carry license. This applies to all weapons you can legally own and possess; if you can conceal an M16, you can carry it via the license. Open carry is not permitted unless on private property or if acting in official law enforcement or security capacity.
Buying a handgun in Florida requires a 3-day wait period unless you have your CCL, in which you can leave with the new pistol in-hand on the same day.
Remember that each time a firearm passes through an FFL, you'll probably pay a transfer fee. For the Tampa-through-Central-Florida area, transfer fees usually run $25-50.
BRAVO for Olympic Arms! I really hope Remington moves out.
I lived in Long Island as a young child, then my family moved away when I completed third grade. I had fond memories of NY (I was young and foolish) and returned to Long Island to complete college at SUNY Stony Brook. While living there, I quickly grew to hate NY: My ex-wife comes from NY, my car was stolen in NY, and I almost lost my life twice.
That is FOUR STRIKES.
I will never go back!
