Magpul Leaving Colorado

January 3rd, 2014 - 12:29 pm

MAGPUL

Details:

Magpul Industries announced Thursday that it was relocating from Colorado to Wyoming and Texas, making good on its threat to pull jobs and revenue from Colorado in response to new gun control laws.

One of those laws bans ammunition magazines that can hold more than 15 rounds. Magpul manufactures standard 30-round magazines and, during debate over the bill last spring, said it would pull up roots if it passed. The law went into effect in July.

In a press release, the company announced it will move its manufacturing, distribution and shipping centers to Cheyenne, Wyo., and open a new corporate headquarters at one of three locations still under consideration in North Texas.

I’m the proud owner of one of Magpul’s high-capacity magazines, and Governor Hickenlooper may kindly kiss my ass.

You mis-spelled "normal-capacity".

I'd like to see Magpul announce that they'll return to North Colorado once it's admitted as a state.

Mrs. Animal and I (we live in Aurora) each have an AR-15. When I set the guns up I bought us a standard load-out of standard capacity, 30-round magazines - seven per gun.

When the ridiculous magazine law passed, I immediately doubled that number, to fourteen per gun. My only regret now is that I didn't buy Magpul mags.

Good, but not enough. Why is Remington still in NY? Beretta in the Peoples' Democratic Republic of Maryland? And Springfield, Kahr, S&W... why don't they show some gumption? Why are they still in hostile territory? I don't get it.
I will buy Magpul whenever I get the chance.

I recall some talk from Beretta USA about leaving Maryland.
