Officials at Magpul Industries unveiled Wednesday its new facilities in Texas and Wyoming, making good on a vow to leave Colorado in response to the states sweeping gun control legislation.

Remington waved goodbye to NY and said, “Hello, Alabama.”
We would like to thank gov. Cuomo and the liberals in NY for the thousands of new jobs in Alabama.
They are a big company in the firearms industry, and they make GREAT stuff.
This is a loss for Colorado, no matter how they try to spin it. Just hate it for the workers there, but that’s what happens when too many people from California and Mexico move to your state......
I know what it’s like. I live in the Southwest part of Virginia. Northern Virgina screws up our entire state, which has always been rather Conservative, but all of the ‘imported’ people from elsewhere into Northern VA and the federal monster has distorted our state beyond recognition. (not to mention I’m pretty sure they rig our elections, but I won’t get into that here)
I live in Cheyenne, Wyoming and we are thrilled to have Magpul here.
I have a dozen of their Gen II 30 round AR mags as well as their adjustable AR stock. Excellent quality products and they really enhance my M4gery. I will be purchasing more as soon as I am able.
Good folks, excellent customer service. I recommend them highly.
In the end, the state officials will make statements like: “we are glad those dealers in death are gone” and try to spin it in their direction as a win. Same as when the same idiots made similar statements about being happy Rush left New YARK for Florida years ago.
My son's in-laws are SW Virginians, and he tells me that they say much the same thing. He laughs and says "The real Virginia now ends at Roanoke."
I've followed Magpul's actions for a while, and they left Colorado the slow, smart way. Too bad the ninnies in that state crapped on them.
Magpul makes guns? Who knew.
Welcome to Texas!
Four of the best years of my life were spent in Wyoming. God’s country.
Most of the rest of my adult life has also been spent in western states. Colorado never impressed me as a part of “The West.”
Magpul made the right move, and bless them for it.
Colorado needs an enema. Shove the tube right up the back door at 200 East Colfax Avenue in Denver, Colorado.
“I know what its like. I live in the Southwest part of Virginia.

You are simply describing the situation in most of the states today. Even in places like Wyoming and Montana, there are RAT legislators in districts that comprise their “major cities.” Our big cities are our main problem. It’s why the RATs want you to move there, so they can dilute your vote while they tell you how you are going to have to live.
The big conservative advertising push in the future needs to follow that line. All the high density, craphole areas in the US are currently run by demonrats, and the people in them need a simple and succunct campaign to point out that this has been true SINCE they ran towards ‘ratdom ~50 years back.
Would like to see Rohrbaugh come to Texas.
Yup. Magpul makes a wide selection of superb parts and accessories, all quality stuff. Their magazines are bullet-proof. I'd say much more reliable and well built even than the GI mags.
“Colorado never impressed me as a part of The West....
There ARE places in Colorado what are indeed “part of the west” and having lived there for a number of years back in the 70’s things were still pretty good. Then, there is the “front range” which is more like “drug store cowboy” west, and now worse since California migrated there. I’ll take Wyoming ANY DAY!
We moved to CO (Colo. back then) in the early 50’s. I recall seeing bumper stickers then which said “Don’t Californicate Colorado”. Dad didn’t really explain what it meant, but he agreed.
Gunmaker Magpul? I don’t recall ever seeing a Magpul firearm.
Journalist today. What are you gonna do? Of course there is a gun show here in town next weekend. Maybe one of the dealers there will have a fresh supply of Magpul weapons for sale. :>}
