A big thanks to Magpul

    Mr. Smith of Magpul (sorry, I didn't catch his first name) was at the capital with us all day, waiting to speak. When he finally had the opportunity, he did us proud, with a logical and articulate but also impassioned testimony opposing the legislation. Even when assured that the bill would be amended to not affect his company, he remained in staunch opposition.

    This is an American company with 100% USA made quality products that keeps prices fair, AND they fight by our side to preserve our rights.

    I know most here are already big fans of Magpul, but their actions on capital hill today in the golden dome deserve special recognition and appreciation.

    I'd tell you to buy a Pmag as thanks, but, ummm....yeah. lol. So how about just send them a quick note of gratitude instead!

    I would state it MUCH stronger. Magpul is a staunch 2a RKBA supporter. I am going to buy something else from them no matter how all this pans out.

    I'd suggest a sticky with a list of companies that are standing up to the gun grabbers. I know that I'll make it a point to shop these companies in the future and hope others would do the same.

    I have made a list of all Magpul products I can use for every one of my guns, and I will fill as I have funds and availability.

    If there is video of the testimony that is/could be posted so the rest of us could see it, that would be great.

    I'm not surprised by this, but still immensly impressed and proud. I will continue to buy Magpu products as long as they are available...whether made in CO or not.

    Bought three Magpul mags this weekend. Yes I was able to find three! I will buy more.

    Apparently Mr. Smith's testimony had some effect with the committee. They amended their bill to continue to let Magpul/other industries manufacture high cap magazines in Colorado. So, it is OK to make them here, as long as the dangerous Colorado citizen is not allowed to own them. Another example of real clear thinking by our legislature. :cuss:

    Good for Magpul. Better if they move after CO passes the bill even with the amendment. We can't continue to operate in these states. It still supports their agenda through taxes. If this bill passes they need to move.

    I agree, though I wouldn't want it to happen right away. Even if this bill becomes law (still a long way to go), it will face challenges of constitutionality and others. The PEOPLE of Colorado are NOT HAPPY about this. In light of that, I would hope Magpul sticks around long enough for us to have a chance at repealing this ridiculous legislation if it did get signed into law. I would love to see their tax revenue taken out of the state the instant the bill became law, but I DO NOT want to see hundreds of unemployed Coloradoans.

    If the challenges were to fail and the law proved here to stay, then yes, Magpul, vote with your dollars.

    So please, folks, continue to do business with Pro-RKBA Colorado companies. This fight is costing us. Between lost income from days spent at the capital instead of running my small business, donations to NRA and RMGO, fuel, parking, etc, I have personally spent over $1,000 THIS MONTH on the fight. And it's only the 13th.

    +1 MacIV; I buy stuff from them every chance I get and (selfishly) wish, if the law passes, they'll move to FL because I'd love to work for them.

    I'd hate to see the unemployed Coloradoans also, but it's more important to cut the funding source. For employees unwilling or unable to move, the jobs will be filled by citizens of the new state, and the taxes paid (although probably less) to a freer state.

    I also applaud Magpul, and will buy some of their products. I do have two of their mags, but had plenty of GI mags before they came out. I was surprised at all of the other stuff they also make (just googled). I'll buy some stuff, be it more mags or "other" in response to their recent stand but I would also encourage them to move if this travesty passes. There are lots of states with better business climates in addition to treating their citizens as citizens (vs. subjects).

    think it's time to email them and ask them to just that... ESPECIALLY if you're a CO resident.

    My words to Magpul...

    They also make nice aftermarket rifle stocks. I have the Archangel target stock on my 10-22 and love it. I already have 8 PMags, but can you really ever have enough? Especially after the Zombie Apocalypse scare yesterday in Montana!
