NRA meeting Houston... a favor

Can one (or more) of you going to Houston ask one of the Remington reps why they sold their souls to the .gov?

For what it's worth, my first gun was a Remington 597. My first centerfire rifle was a Remington 710. My first shotgun was a Remington 870.

I've added another 870 and an 1100 to my safe in the past few years. I'd been pondering an 11-87 or VersaMax for more utilitarian work.

Remington's decision to stay in a state whose residents can't buy many of its guns means I will not buy another new Remington product.

Damn shame, because I happen to like my 870s. I'll just have to check the used racks at Gander, Cabelas, etc, for well-loved ones.

I don't have to ask. Remington sold out to the bean counters long ago, the recent excuse to stay in place is just more of the same.

I've heard rumors that they plan to pull up stakes and leave Illion.

I'll certainly ask them that bit.
