Any way you look at it, this is BIG NEWS

Remington Defense has just been awarded a contract to produce up to 120,000 M4/M4A1 carbines for the U.S. Army. Why is this big news? Several reasons: Making M4s for our military is new ground for Remington and what’s learned out of this process will ultimately bleed down into the civilian ARs they make. And, it means more jobs for American workers in Ilion, New York.

There is that thing called pride too. Remington should for sure be proud to be making firearms for our troops. I’m proud too. I’m proud that America’s oldest firearms manufacturer and one of its oldest manufacturers period is arming our military.

The bad part is that soon after Remington starts shipping M4s to the Army, NBC will likely come out with a special report suggesting that the triggers on those M4s just make the guns go off for no reason at all.

    Well, as long as they “go off” in the direction of the enemy, I’m okay with it.

    Our government will probably pass an HR Bill banning the rifle from civilians. Currently bill HR 308 is in congress that will ban any magazine or clip that holds 10 or more rounds. Now would be a good time to contact your reps and let them know you disapprove of the bill.
