TEXAS - Please Beretta - Please come to Texas! We need more firearms manufacturers here in the republic.


Well...it may not be Beretta, but we are getting a part of Colt.

dfw.cbslocal.com...


BRECKENRIDGE (CBS 11 NEWS) – A firearms company that makes AR-15 style rifles for the iconic brand Colt, will open a plant in Breckenridge in Stephens County. Oregon company Bold Ideas confirmed the development Friday.



The move by Colt Competition into Breckenridge comes as the CEO of Colt Manufacturing in Connecticut has said there will soon be few good answers to keep his company in the state


Now hopefully more come down to our state.

I love my Beretta M9. Traded in my Glock 19 and used what I got from that to go towards the M9. Nearly 1,000 rounds through it and still love it.

I say, good for Beretta to leave that state. Hopefully other major gun industries follow.

ETA - Relocate to Texas.

By all indications, Texas will become it's own last stand against our governments tyrannical incursion into every aspect of life. Maybe even secede..? Texas is quickly gaining a newfound monetary base along with a growing polarized citizenry. It may become the last island of what the founding fathers envisioned America to be.

dude. I have a beer belly AND a goatee. the funny thing is beretta is leaving, not shutting down, and there are a few more gun makers out there

you watch, year from now there will be record numbers of gun owners in the US. probably 10 -15 % more than there are now.

so if there is a "who benefitted from it" conspiracy angle, the potus isn't even on the list

this place cracks me up. no logic, just hysterical assumptions based on old prejudices

I never said anything about politics. Let me ask you this which is more for America a party that offers tax breaks to bring jobs back to America or the party which blocked the bill so jobs wouldn't move back here? But seeing how you are one of the people who thinks the states should bow to foreign demands will you be cheering when they finally take over control? I would say yes you would.


That's all well and good, but didn't Beretta have employees in that plant? 400, I believe. I guess Maryland really didn't need those jobs, and neither did the people who are now out of work.

Gun ownership in the US was in a decline for many years before the Democrats started their anti-gun legislation.

Sorry, I thought you were 'one of those'. This forum (and almost everywhere else, too) is filled with self-proclaimed bada**es with super ninja skills who probably couldn't beat up a stray starving kitten. Its one of my biggest online annoyances.

But yes, you're right that gun ownership rates are skyrocketing. Certainly, the Obama administration and the Democratic party badly miscalculated the reaction they were going to get back in January.

Good on them. More companies and people need to do this. Remove the tax revenues from those states that are stripping away freedoms. Maybe they will learn when they run deficits for a couple of years.

Ummm...Gotta love the CX4 Storm carbine...I love the .45, although you can get it in the .40 and 9mm as well. I also love how it takes about 3 seconds to break this weapon down for cleaning and 3 more for reassembly. Pop the pin, slide the upper and lower apart and remove the bolt...voila.

The carbine I love to hate is the Hi-point...Love their lifetime warranty, but trying to break it down for cleaning becomes an expletive laden bitch fest that could turn Walter Mitty into a...Hulk...smash...Hyde character after the first 15 min.

I'm glad to see Berretta making this move, and I wish them all the best, they have the most innovative firearms as far as I'm concerned...

As a KS resident, our Senate just passed the Second Amendment Protection Act yesterday after it passed the House. Now it's just waiting to be signed. For those that do not know, it is a copy of the Firearms Freedom Act, anything stamped Made in KS is void to Federal Regulations including Suppressors, Short Barreled Rifles and even full auto. Adding onto that, our bill makes it a felony for any state or government official to attempt gun confiscation from a non-criminal and makes "gun free zones" (I mean shooting ranges for the insane to be politically incorrect) void without metal detectors and armed guards present.

I hope Beretta moves here just to get some extra manufacturers, but I think it may be too far of a move.

And it's only uphill after 1k or so rounds, finally broken in.

It's funny how many people in this thread that thinks an American state should make it's laws to suit a foreign company. Small wonder why foreign companies have so much control in America because there are getting to be fewer real Americans who put America first everyday. If Beretta doesn't like the laws here they can go back to the country they came from.


Or....they can just move to another state.


Best. Retort. Ever.

Texas or Arizona. The Left Coast and liberal Northeast are what caused this mess in the first place.

not all of us on the east coast and north east are liberal. I'll be sorry to see Beretta go but I can't say I blame them one bit. Many of us in the right side of left-land will be following suit.

Note that the company is just playing politics


And why not? That is the free market. I say let them teach these gun grabbers a lesson.

Just because you pass laws do you really think people won't get things black market?


Locks can be picked. By your er um "logic", since locks can be picked, there is no reason to lock your doors.

Nobody is grabbing guns. You might want to research the law before spouting NRA nonsense.

Maryland is for all intents and purposes part of the DC metropolis. Do you really think some metal turning business means much of anything to Maryland? Seriously?

It is the beginning of the end for the NRA. In a nation of well over 100 million gun owners, the NRA can only get a small percentage to join (runs from 2% to 3%). That is because the NRA is bat crap crazy. They don't represent gun owners, they represent manufacturers, which is the main source of their revenue. The NRA is not the gun owners friend, and the soon they shut down, the better.

The NRA has sent me a membership invitation for at least the last 20 years because they know I'm a likely candidate to join. I just rip them up. At one time the NRA was about gun safety and people, but that was about 40 years ago.

Funny how so many patriots listen to Wayne La Piere de Fecal matter, who is a draft dodger.

If you look at the statistics, those who are buying guns already have guns. There aren't a whole lot of new owners. Rather the NRA spews some nonsense about gun grabbing, and the sheep obey. Remember, the NRA represents the gun manufacturers, not the people.
