    That's Odumbos government motors. His talk is cheap - but his actions speak volumes. And the useful idiots will still vote for him.

    Your statement is kind of hipocritical there Big Dog.

    Do you "Buy American"? All the time, as much as you can, or just whenever you have to?

    Is your trapgun made in America? What about the car you drive? Do you support American owned businesses?

    Just curious.

    That article is dated April 2010 almost 2 years old, not the most current news. Nowhere in the story is there any mention of the new agency being foreign.

    Took two seconds to find that they are a French company... Spelling of the name kind of gave it away too.

    Really, BBB, how am I hypocritical???? Do I promote "buy American" and ship jobs and taxpayers money overseas??

    Trap gun is made in Italy; car in Alabama by a German company,,,,,you think I should buy American???? I sure will and do whenever the quality and price match up.....


    Eric,,,,,were you already aware of it????

    I think GM has dug thier own grave and it is slowly caveing in on them. In thier push to make Chevy the one vehicle for everybody they have killed off both Oldsmobile and Pontiac, a Chevy will never be equal to either one. Buick is now in China and that will be the next one in the hole. If the taxpayers ever quit shoveling dirt out of that hole they are done.

    GM had a profit of 8 billion in 2011 so their grave doesn't appear to be too deep.

    Are there any American made trapguns, other than the high $$ guns like Seitz, Infinity, etc.? Remington is the only one that comes to mind, and then I'm not so sure it's made completely in the U.S.

    The ill-fated Ruger trapgun (committed suicide in Ruger's usual way) is the only other one I can think of.

    kiv-c,

    What does a Perazzi or a Baretta cost compared to an Alferman, Silver Seitz?

    Pretty much comparable I would think. Sorry, I know my 870 was built in the US
    way back in 1978. and BYW< still shooting it a couple of hundred targets weekly.
