    I can't imagine this will actually cost them any business. I've never heard of any agency using Olympics.

    Maybe when Oly's business triples because of patriotic purchases other companies will jump on the bandwagon. Maybe.

    I'm sorry. I just read that again and started to laugh. As if Colt, Remington, Glock, S&W or any other gun manufacturer would give up lucrative contracts over any sort of conviction. That stands as good a chance as a mass boycott by the private sector over any gun manufacturer that sells to gov't agencies in NY. People don't have that kind of will. Even die hard 2A supporters wouldn't do that so why would a company - other than one who does no business in NY anyway.

    What will really put the pain in NY is if all major players follow suit

    Oly has taken a sheeet-beating over the years from the "Chart people" due to cast lowers of their distant past, the nebulous "mil-specs", and their absolute refusal to use chrome, preferring stainless instead.

    But...

    Back in the Politically Correct days when Pony guns were no longer being sold to us mere mortals - Oly soldiered on making ARs for us "civvies". They brought us the 7.62x39 AR, the pistol-AR, the first billeted recvr ARs, and several "wildcat" ARs. They are overdue their props.

    Never fails on GT. A company does something good and somebody has to post some numbskull and negative comment about it. Just plain sad. :upeyes:

    As much as I love Texas and I am a big fan of Larue they were just outdone IMO. Larue stopped selling to certain Govt groups based on "fear of selling illegally to the worng person by mistake" or some such thing which I assume is just a cover to stop selling to folks they disagree with politically. I can live with that :)

    Olympic just comes out and says "up yours NY"!

    Nicely done IMO.

    Olympic hasn't ever really been on my purchasing radar, but regardless of my taste for their products, I admire them heartily for this decision. I might have to buy one as a range plinker.

    As a NYer I give them credit. I will buy from them in the future.

    I own several AR's but not an Olympic. Some day when all this panic buying ends I will add on to my collection just because.:patriot:

    I hope other gun manufactures follow.

    Wow! I'll be supporting these stand-up guys, for sure. It was good to see the president and marketing directors both tell the creators and supporters of those ridiculous laws to stick it!

    Awesome job, Olympic Arms!

    :highfive:

    Others have already done this. Although Oly is just following suite it's good to see. I would rather see Olys in the hands of bad guys than law abiding citizens. Olys have earned every once of their reputation.

    He hasn't seen anything yet! That's nothing compared to what's coming.

    I support them 100% and hope you all will too. He is right about one thing....

    If we don't stand united we will surely fall divided!
