    GA is getting pretty entrenched in the firearms industry it would seem.

    Definitely step in the right direction. Thanks for the heads-up.

    Manitowoc Wisconsin is a good manufacturing town and should have plenty of local talent available since the ice machine company moved its manufacturing operations to Mexico. There was a shipyard that built submarines in WWII there on the shore of Lake Michigan. The museum there is great.

    Just in time for the sprawl of the ATL to turn it blue. Other red states have this happening too.

    What primers will all these new ammo plants use?

    And it's going bluer by the day, I would not invest the money or time in a state that in a few years may try to push you out like how N.Y. Does.

    I’m not going to say your wrong and the truth is, I am not even necessarily enthusiastic about all the firearms companies moving to this state. It feels like all the eggs are being put into one basket. Right now, the incentives for firearms companies moving here are high. Hard to say what the future will hold.

    Any location anywhere on the planet that was once friendly and accommodating can become unfriendly for the firearms industry. All it takes is a vocal minority more interested in the needs of the few rather than the needs of many.

    I also hope GA continues to remain red for the gun companies (and other industries) to continue opening new operations in our state, our current Governor has reached out and brought a lot of manufactures into our state to keep our taxes fair and is very gun friendly (he just signed the open carry bill), I would like to see a primer mfg. and powder mfg. brought into our state along with the ammo and gun mfg. since I reload instead of purchasing loaded ammo. Our state has seen a lot of political controversy and probably will continue to for a couple of years, during our last election millions of out of state money was sent here to upset our balance and I look for more to be sent in this year.

    I hope they plan to make more than 5.56 and 9mm. Seems a little late to me unless they are preparing for another shortage

    GA just passed a constitutional carry law, so there is hope. We're getting some of the new facilities here in Arkansas as well. Much safer political climate here. Our biggest cities aren't that big, so they don't pull the elections blue.

    I wonder if the climate in NY will change somewhat now that Cuomo is gone?

    He was the instigator for the Safe Act, etc, threatening pols if they didn't vote for it. Also he and his father, a prior governor, seemed to hate guns, gun owners, and hunters.

    With the current governor from upstate, maybe there's hope.

    Problem is from the tv commercials I see, I watch very little tv. There trying to shoehorn Cuomo back in. The new one is just as bad, any pro gun person would have done something about the safe act already.
    The only way we I'll get a pro gun governor is it they change how we vote, the rest of the state doesn't have a chance with the high number of blue in are bigger city's.

    Personally I think NY, CA, and some others with huge urban areas are lost causes. '"The problem with the country is the city" used to be a joke...not anymore! Think about how different gun control legislation could and probably would be if States had electoral colleges like the Nation.

    Always good to have more production for sure. As someone else mentioned, though, would be even better if another manufacturer of primers was added. That seemed to be the biggest bottleneck this time around.

    In a situation like this it's bound to, pretty much guaranteed it will become political.

    I wonder what led Norma to move from Tampa, FL to GA?

    Folks on this forum shouldn't be critical of new/expanding firearms/ammo industries being builti the S/E. They are pumping millions into this. The company being built in East Texas IS a primer manufacturing facility. How about giving all this some time and see how it plays out?
