    I get it they're in business to make money. But if all of the large manufacturers banded together, some of this silliness may go away. Refuse to sell to ANYONE in these states that are coming up with these atrocious magazine bills. That may get them rethinking their bad laws.

    Would anything make you rethink your core beliefs? I think it would take more than that, although I sympathize with the thought.

    Stop selling to the LE and state agencies in New York. That would cause quite a stir. Imagine the Troopers protecting Emperor Cuomo carrying Taurus guns, no offense to Taurus.

    They should refuse the sale to LE. FBI though, that would make a statement!

    His dad is one of the reasons we moved from NY 19 years ago, and the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

    The idea of Glock crossing their preferred governmental customers borders on the absurd.

    Gaston knows very well from his youth experiences how to "just follow orders," wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

    Google Olympic Arms and NY. They basically told NY that they won't be doing any business with any city, county, or state agencies, until they rethink their new gun control laws. Maybe the others will follow the little guys lead.

    It seems to me the American owned companies are much more likely to follow Olympic and others doing this already. I doubt the Euro owned companies could care less about the principal of the issue. They have few to no rights in their own country regarding firearms so why would they care about our rights from a moral standpoint like American companies might.

    As I stated in another thread here, I plan to sell my entire Glock "armory" and buy all new S&W if both companies keep on current trajectories. I will loose a few thousand bucks but this **** has to stop. My vote doesn't seem to count so I'll try using my wallet, before transacting in lead with the bastards.

    How's that? They should sell or service or provide parts or ammo to their LE agencies. That's how you make a statement IMO.

    Glock has one firearm they can legally sell in NY. Regardless of their political beliefs they have a business to run.

    Oh no doubt, I just don't seem them taking a stand against NY based on a moral issue like some American companies. Simply because they are not an American company.

    I wouldn't blame Glock for not changing a thing. There not american based and don't really have a dog in the fight. Now all american gun makers should band together to stop this but, we will see.

    Do you really think S&W would stop selling to LEO agencies in Marxist-controlled cities and states? Heck no they won't. All my shotguns and rifles are Remingtons since in the category of hunting, they are excellent. I thought about moving to the M&P but they are inferior to Glock. In did the research interviewing people who actually carry a handgun daily. The stainless slides on the M&P lose finish after about 10 holster presentations and they rust. The trigger reset is spongy. The take down lever design is sketchy and you have to hold it down during reassembly. The service M&P's I saw had pitted rust on the barrel.

    I am not knocking any M&P people here. I am sure you have had good results. I know Glocks have issues too but this is a Glock forum. I would never post this reply on the S&W forum.

    I laud manufacturers who leave states or make a stand. We on the other hand do not nee to attack firearms companies since this is exactly what our President and Democrats are all about: Divide and Conquer.

    I will say this: If we the people are debarred the use of high capacity mags and assault style rifles then Military and Police should be barred from using too. This is why America is different. It's we the people not a select few.

    As much as I would like to see this happen...this effort would never succeed long term. Someone will always be willing to sell to them...

    A boycott of any manufacturer would simply narrow the competition for the hungrier, shorter sighted/politically motivated suppliers.

    Capitalism and oportunism...plain and simple.
