It just seems incredibly stupid to me. As anti gun as California is, they remain? Why haven't they said Fuck this and left?

close to points of supply and raw material? larger pool of qualified workers to pick from?

did you ever realize that a bunch of gun companies are also located in anti-gun states?

Doesn't make much sense to take a company that's been in the same place for ever, and then move it to a new area where none of your new employees know anything about your company or its products. Institutional knowledge is a very valuable thing.

Lots of companies like RRA, Rock Island Armory and LMT along with ArmaLite based here.

Or Illinois and New York. Confuses me.

You would think that they would move next door and make a big statement by doing so. I don't live in Kalifornia or NYC for those reasons alone.

Why is Colt still in CT? Why is S&W in MA? Armalite, RRA, Springfield, et al, in IL, etc....

RCBS is at least based in a state that doesn't restrict ownership of the products they make, though I'll admit, CA is not exactly business-friendly on the whole.

...which is why I'm going to leave this state someday, hopefully sooner than later, if I can find a job out there in Free America

Justification for charging too much for inferior products

RCBS has been around for a while. I'm guessing they were there when CA wasn't the fucked up shithole infested with illegal aliens and liberal moonbats that it is today.

Sierra Bullets was also in California. But being a large consumer of lead, they moved closer to the supply.
