Arms Company Cancels All Its New York Police Bidness

Home - by - February 18, 2013 - 10:15 America/New_York - 18 Comments

Buxton, ME --(Ammoland.com)- Based on the recent legislation in New York, we are prohibited from selling rifles and receivers to residents of New York.

We have chosen to extend that prohibition to all governmental agencies associated with or located within New York.

As a result we have halted sales of rifles, short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, machine guns, and silencers to New York governmental agencies.

For “civilian” customers residing in New York: At your choice, we will:

  • Complete your order and ship to a dealer of your choice outside of NY.
  • Refund your payment in full.
  • Hold your items here for up to 6 months, at no charge – if you are in the process of leaving NY and taking residence in another state.

For LE/Govt customers in New York: Your orders have been cancelled.

    Eventually, I hope all manufacturers get in line with this kind of thing over their bottom line.

    Larue won’t even so much as ship them a Beverage Entry Tool, never mind they make some of the best mounts and hottest aim points.

    It isn’t always about the actual gun!

    BOOM !!!

    It has begun.

    Who da thunk that the next civil war of this country would start in the North.

    It is a civil war now you know.

    Civilian business owners against civilians in government uniforms.

    It will escalate to outright open warfare when Obama sends out Holder and his goons to seize these “rebellious” businesses for “the sake of national security, global warming, the undocumented aliens, and of course “for the children”.

    (I just wanna tell you all: good luck. We’re all counting on you.)

    Kudos to them and a few other arms companies, who are doing similar actions. They value principle over profits.

    What really scares me is the amount of ammunition being bought by the U.S. Govt, especially by agencies that seemingly have no use for weapons or ammunition.

    I can think of two reasons they are doing this:

    1. Get as much ammunition out of the retail market, making it hard for law-abiding citizens to purchase ammo.

    2. Stockpile ammo for use against U.S.citizens.

    It’s not paranoia when they’re really out to get you.

    Moxie Man, I’m the last to side with the government, but don’t believe the hype about bullet purchases. They’ve done it for years and when you start putting numbers down to recruits/training in field upkeep and length of procurement to fill said contract, it amounts to very little per shooter.

    That said, I stumbled upon 100 round white box Winchester in .40S&W and .45ACP at Wal*Mart yesterday. It was $35.77 for .40 and $31.47 for .45!!!

    No, I didn’t transpose the costs, .45ACP is $4.30 CHEAPER than .40S&W – - First time I have ever seen that and I bet the result of the government’s current thirst for 40S&W.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if NY has to go to CUBA to buy AK-47′s and Wolf 7.62×39 ammo. Or use a straw purchaser.

    Excellent news! If the Gubment isn’t allowed to purchase such vast quantities of ammo then the price may come back down. But with Homeland Scrutiny and other Agencies buying billions of rounds, the price will stay high along with the demand.

    It’s always inspiring when someone stands up and you weren’t expecting it.

    How many more are out there?

    The tide seems to be rolling in.

    Anyone hear what the state people have to say about all this?

    That would be the angle a real journalist would go after.

    old_oaks, 40s&w is much more widely used than 45acp by all levels – Govt & civilian.

    Supply and demand for sure. My 10mm is comparable now when it used to be a premium.

    dado3…no its not. Its the PC choice of govorments, and an ineffective bullet, But its a great calibur if your opponent is using it and all you have is 45acp.

    Not saying it’s a better round. Just saying more widely used and purchased than the 45acp. By far.
