    Made In USA only?

    Anyone here have a gun collection that is solely American made?

    I can't say I do, even my XDs don't qualify and that's before I include the others.

    I got thinking about it earlier when I was talking to my neighbor as he took delivery of his new Dodge Viper convertible. He has over 20 American sports cars, talking to him I was sat in a Toyota Tundra wearing a Croatian gun.

    So, anyone have a 'Made In USA' collection?

    And you didn't hold him up, steal the car, and take a joyride?!

    What kind of gun is that Croatian piece of junk if it doesn't cause you to want to go out and commit violent crimes?!

    You're not gonna try to convince me that Sarah Brady is wrong, are you?

    I think it was a very safe assumption that he was wearing a 1911.
    Plus he has other cars that can catch the Viper.

    Too much cool stuff from foreign countries. Although I like things made in the USA, and most of my nicest most expensive ones are, I'm just not sure it's feasable to have a full and diverse firearm collection of just American mades. (Not that I don't eventually want a wall full of American service rifles only).

    Nope, most likely his cars have a good percentage of foreign parts as well.

    Well, my BHP was made in Belgium and assembled in Portugal, so the answer is no.

    Well, had you asked when I was 18 and only had a Mossberg 500 and Savage .22 rifle, I coulda said yes then.

    Now it isn't even a majority, 6 American vs 7 foreign.

    No not me either. I do concider it when I make a purchase. All things being equal between 2 guns I'll let the Made in USA label sway me but that can't be the only factor.

    It is part of the reason why I bought a S&W 642 over one of the Taurus snubs, and why my next pistol will likely be a M&P compact over the G26.

    However just like Automobiles things are not always what they seem in the gun world. My Sprigfield Armory, USA XD was designed and built in Croatioa and my Nissan Titan was designed in California and built in Mississippi. My dad used to give me trouble about my Nissan being an "import" until I pointed out his Avalance was Built in Mexico. S&W has a new line of shotguns that I belive are made in Turkey.

    If Made in USA is important to ya, you really have to research what your buying.

    Yep, my Tundra was made in Indiana. Of course it still has a Japanese badge and the old guys don't forget easily.

    I read today that CompUSA is a Mexican owned company, it was bought out a few years ago.

    I guess CompMEX wouldn't look as good?
