    They work in a gun facility, they are not typical New York'ers (even the upstate'ers are not what you'd think of as typical NY'ers).

    I'm from Bay Minette, work in NM for a few more days. Then on to Texas for a few years.

    My TLE II is still running after more than a decade! Works for me. Can't help the other who were unlucky. Glad they are leaving Yonkers!

    I remember when our new dealership and body shop were being built, when it was time to move we hired four temp guys, one was from Rome, NY. We eventually hired this guy and we became shooting buddies, this guy was hilarious, me being from NC, I honestly had never been around any New Yorkers!

    And of course being younger at that time myself, when I thought of NY, I thought of NY City!

    I remember this guy saying that upstate NY was absolutely FULL of gun loving good ole boy rednecks!

    I figured it was something like that. Just jerking your chain a little. I started school while living in Grand Bay.

    What I wanna know is if they've taken that gawd awful billboard BS off of their slides. It has been one of the deciding factors for me not buying one of their guns.

    As an ex-NY'er I'm insulted, but I'll be kind this time by saying that you're just an ignoramis.

    it is, same with NJ. there are many sides to every state.
    Northern NJ outside the burbs ain't nothin but woods, lots and lots of woods. either retired hippies, who mind their own, or rednecks, even some hills-have-eyes type folks. Most would not believe the stories I have from growing up there. lol.

    No, he doesn’t realize that. Every single citizen from New York is Leftist. Same with California. Conversely, every person living in Texas is a Constitutional Conservative. Even those people living in Austin.

    It is mostly NYC that is so liberal. And that skews the numbers for the state. The rest of, and especially rural NY, is pretty conservative.

    There are more conservatives within the five boroughs of NYC than there are in the entire state of Utah. Unfortunately, the squeaky wheels get the oil. HH

    I don't like to think of those folks losing their jobs, but this will be good for Alabama. This may even be better for Kimber as well.

    That was a management problem, not a worker problem. Remington was already over-burdened with debt.
