If you haven't read this, it's an amazing article - very well done.  It's a long read, but has a TON of interesting information and history:

Yes I really thought that was a well written article. Long read too.

Awesome article, read it the other night and was some solid insight.

There were a few "inaccuracies " in the article.

Good read.   I had a chance to get one of those Desert Storm USMC turn-ins and muffed it.   Too bad.
I hope Ronnie's faith in Nioa isn't misplaced.   A lot of people are uneasy about that sale.
I didn't realize the part about his son, Chris.    I'd heard Ronnie sold out due to his age & wanting to retire.   But selling seems like a very odd move with Chris being talented and available to take the reins.

Sorry. But that got a chuckle out of me.

I doubt Ronnie Barrett would sell to anyone he thought would shut down civilian sales.

Also, given what other companies have done to long-standing firms when they buy them up (see freedom group/cereberus), can't be much worse.

There was something I heard or read that they have to continue with manufacturing in TN for 5 years then who knows what happens after that.
