    I appreciate the gesture, but reimbursement is not necessary. It is not only my civic duty to oppose unconstitutional legislation, but also my duty as a husband and a father to do all I can to ensure that my family, especially my daughters, are not legislated out of the means to protect themselves. I did not do this for me, as these bills really don't affect me personally (my personal collection is, ummm...........extensive. I'd be just fine with no further armament). I did this for others just coming of age, those still many years from it and those not yet born or even conceived. This is about the future. Very few of these proposed laws, here, in other states and federally, will have much impact on those of us who have been buying guns and shooting for years or decades. We are fighting this fight for future generations.

    I have always been a proud Colorado native until recently, and I do hope that this situation is rectified expediently. We've always been a right of center state with a strong spirit of freedom, but the imports from the PRK and New Yorkistan, and the progressive indoctrination system are changing things. I'm not very proud right now. Of my county, of the county sheriffs of Colorado, of the many citizens who speak to deaf ears of legislators, yes, but not of my state.

    Beware, people, this is a cancer, a virus. Your home states are not immune, just resistant. The left shift here did not reflect a right shift in another state. These people infest and infect one area, and then move on to the next once that one is irretrievably broken.

    It's a good start, but please keep patronizing them!

    I have, at last count:

    33 PMags
    2 Maglinks
    2 CTR stocks
    1 ACS-L stock
    1 MOE handguard + rail
    3 RVGs
    4 MOE grips
    4 MOE trigger guards
    1 RSA

    On the short list:

    Set of gen II MBUS
    Another CTR for my 597 VTR
    An ACS for my AR-10

    And this doesn't even count the Pmags I've bought people as gifts, the quantity of which I haven't kept track of.

    Pmags in stock

    Just came from my favorite LGS - East Orange Shooting Sports in Winter Park, FL. Pmags out the door for $20 each; picked up two 30's and two 20's. As noted by me on other threads, these guys never gouge and seem to have a pretty consistent supply.

    Their only limitation is that you don't buy more than two of any type. This is based on recent experience with holding mass sales 2x a week when inventory arrived and people hoarding & flipping to gouge.

    Uhh, no, they didn't. I was there and I read the specific bill and paid attention to the amendments.

    Here is Doug Smith, the COO of Magpul

    So the state of colorado is telling manufacturers that they want the corporate tax money to keep coming in, but that the honest citizens of colorado can not buy the product that they are producing?

    SCREW YOU, COLORADO LEGISLATURE.

    And colt, kahr, remington, kimber s&w, and springfield need to get the heck out of the states they are in.

    For those of you who watch the link that Zak posted, yes, that committee chairman with the british accent really is that much of an arrogant, condescending prick.

    If it becomes unacceptable for Magpul to run in CO anymore, we will be glad to find them a good deal in Utah on some manufacturing space. And I am not being the least bit facetious.

    Yep. Absolutely thrilled with how Magpul has handled all this. I think I've got enough AR magazines by now (maybe :)), but assuming all this pans out my next AR build will at least wear all Magpul furniture. Probably will outfit a pump shotgun with their stuff too just for kicks.
