I would love to see it.

PTR makes a great H&K 91 copy.

The current politico's in Connecticut have failed their history lessons, not understanding the depth and breadth of Connecticut's history with weapons and the 2A. Failure to pay attention to that history is costing them dearly. I don't like that regular folks are losing jobs because of these changes, but maybe those losses will be reflected at the polls.

"Regular folks" can pack up an leave too. It may not be easy but they can follow their jobs to other states with less restriction.

I know it would be hard to leave behind family and friends. It's all a matter of priorities. A line has to be drawn in the minds of every free man/woman. Beyond this point, I vote with my feet.

This is true, and I hope that many current loyal employees are allowed to do just that -- follow the company to wherever they land and keep their job.

There will be some losses though; inevitably there are spouses working for the company that is leaving that are not the primary bread winner for their family, and the other spouse's job is not going anywhere. So that leaves one on the outside looking for a job.

I hope your scenario is more the norm and fewer people are affected by this.

From PTRs website:

"We are pleased to say that we currently have commitments to move from a majority of our employees, which includes ALL of our management personnel, engineering staff and skilled gunsmiths."

This is not the first time that the state law makers caused a mass exodus of manufacturing companies. The anti business local and state governments were the main reason in the 1960's for Fafnir Bearing, New Departure, Stanley, Landers, Ferry and Clark and others to relocate out of the state, some even out of the country. The loss of PTR and Stag will also be a major loss for their local suppliers and support companies that I am sure will force reductions in their work force. The loss of the companies in the 60's was a major impact on the local economy and work force, most were located in New Britain. It would be great to see the five or six other companies in New Britain that produce guns and/or accessories make an announcement of their possible departure.

I know some great real estate for them right off of I-10 in the Houston area. We would be a perfect home for them (if you don't mind a hurricane every now and then).

Amen. I do too.

Surprise ......
The move by PTR may surprise some lawmakers, like U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), who haven’t been taking gun makers’ threats seriously.

“Gun manufacturers are like other businesses in looking for the highest quality workforce, the best business environment in terms of transportation and taxes and other features unrelated to any regulatory action,” Blumenthal said in an interview last week.

“Their markets are national. What happens in Connecticut affects only purchases here,” he added.
