Thread: Hire American, Buy American??

  1. Hire American, Buy American??

    While I unable to affect change in the hire American part I'm wondering if thr buying American part I can. I understand the purchase of 1 or 2 handguns may not make make any real difference but I'm wondering if this could be my start?

    I've had my sights on 3 handguns, Glock 19, Springfield Mod 2 and S&W 9c. Do I take President Trump at word and buy the 9c?

    I'm not a fan of glock, particularly, but many major gun companies who sell in the US have

    US facilities. Beretta, IIRC, has a manufacturing facility in Accocreek, MD.

    The real issue with buying American, is, IMO, a little closer to home than the occasional

    gun purchase. You can search for hours, trying to buy American, and spend 90$, or

    be in and out of Wal-Mart, in 45 minutes, with the same stuff, China made, paying 58$ .

    Be honest with yourself. What do you do?

  4. Glock manufactures in the US and actually exports guns from here.

    It's just a thought I just had and I'm unsure what I do matters. I was hoping more to get opinions of American manufacturers.

    They're not bad, and it's a valid point, I'm sorry. It's a little deceptive, though. CZ makes good stuff, for instance, and they have a distributorship

    here in the US, (CZUSA) so if you buy CZ, you are also

    supporting US jobs. Where it gets a little weird is you see some US names, like on ammo, only to find out later that it was actually made

    somewhere else, by someone else.

    But Springfield and S&W are a couple solid name brands.

    Thanks for the info!!

  8. Buy American!

    Hey, folks, if you want to buy American, buy AMERICANóRuger American, that is! I've long said that the Ruger SR/SR45 was the most overlooked pistol line on the market; the American, for many folks, is even better! I've put my money where my mouth is, with two SR9s (house guns in different rooms) and an SR9C for carrying. I also have an SR45 for carrying, and just got an American .45. Without a doubt, worth consideration.

    Consider 'em.

    Best,

    Walt
    PS Keep in mind that all Rugers are 100% made in NH, NC or AZ. Just saynin'.

    When I researched modern 45ACP pistols it came down to a Ruger, a Sig, or a CZ. While they were all good, the CZ looked like the best. So that's what I got.

    My other 3 guns are all American however.

    My computer is American but my printer/scanner is Japanese.

    My car is American.

    My TV is Korean.

    My cell phone is Canadian.

    My carbine is from Ruger -- their signature Mini 14.

    I truly loved my M-14 in boot camp, and I love my Ruger Mini in 5.56x45 even more now.
