Remington Arms Leaving New York, Moving To Georgia

Remington to Invest $100 Million in New Gun Factory

The Associated Press – Gun maker Remington Firearms will invest $100 million to move its headquarters from upstate New York to Georgia with plans to open a factory and research operation there. The company announced that it will hire 856 people over five years.

November 10, 2021 –

(TheDailyHorn.com) – In 1816, 22-year-old Eliphalet Remington II founded Remington Arms Company in 1816 and quickly turned his products into a household name. By the middle of the 1800s, Remington was a major competitor in gun manufacturing, along with Samuel Colt and Daniel Wesson — all brands familiar to gun owners today. Remington played a vital role in the formation of the American West. Today, the company makes guns for sports, self-defense, and the military.

On Monday, November 8, Remington Arms announced that it was leaving its New York roots and relocating to more hospitable territory. The nation’s oldest gunmaker said it’s moving to LaGrange, Georgia, approximately 70 miles from Atlanta. The company is also opening a new factory and research operation, and plans to hire more than 850 people over the next five years.

Remington made some of America’s most popular guns, including the Beals Sporting Rifle sported by Annie Oakley, George Armstrong Custer’s Creedmoor Target Rifle, the No. 1 Rolling Block Rifle carried by Buffalo Bill, and many other rifles, shotguns, and handguns.

Over the last several years, numerous gun manufactures left their roots in the Northeast for more gun-friendly states in the South and West. Remington said it was excited to move to Georgia, a state that welcomes and supports its business model.

AMERICA’S HUNTERS Pretty Amazing!

For the sake of our freedom, don’t ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns.

WISCONSIN Outdoors

A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:

There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin …. Allow me to restate that number: 600,000!

Over the last several months, Wisconsin’s hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.

(That’s more men under arms than in Iran .. More than France and Germany combined.)

These men, deployed to the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin, to hunt with firearms, And NO ONE WAS KILLED.

That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan’s 700,000 hunters, ALL OF WHOM HAVE RETURNED HOME SAFELY.

Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the Hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.

And then add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states. It’s millions more.

The point?

America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower! Hunting… it’s not just a way to fill the freezer.

It’s a matter of national security.

That’s why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.

Food for thought, when next we consider gun control. Overall it’s true, so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters don’t possess the same skills as soldiers, the question would still remain… What army of 2 million would want to face 30 million, 40 million, or 50 million armed citizens???

For the sake of our freedom, don’t ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns.

County Commission Recognizes the National Rifle Association for 150 Years of Service

The Board of Polk County Commissioners Recognizes the National Rifle Association for 150 Years of Service

November 17th established as NRA Day in Polk County, Florida

Tuesday, September 7th, the Board of Polk County Commissioners, issued a proclamation recognizing the National Rifle Association for its 150 years of dedication to promoting firearms safety education.  The proclamation establishes November 17, 2021 NRA Day in Polk County.

The proclamation recognizes the National Rifle Association for 150 years of protecting Second Amendment freedom, teaching marksmanship and gun safety, and passing self-defense laws across the nation.

Since its founding on November 17, 1871, by two Union Civil War officers, the National Rifle Association has served firearm owners across the nation through training and other initiatives aimed at promoting firearm safety, the shooting sports and hunter education.

The proclamation was initiated by In-Gauge of Polk County, of Winter Haven, Florida, a non-profit organization chartered by the National Rifle Association.   The stated mission of In-Gauge of Polk County is to preserve and promote the shooting sports through firearms training and safety education.

In-Gauge has been carrying out its mission in Polk County since 2015 and has been celebrating the NRA’s 150th anniversary by conducting free firearm safety training classes, giving away free NRA memberships and free commemorative, 1 ounce silver, collector’s coins to class participants.

In 2017, In-Gauge of Polk County became a proud sponsor of the Polk Senior Games when it petitioned Polk Senior Games, Inc. to include a pistol competition as an event.  Although the Polk Senior Games conducted rifle, trap and skeet and archery competitions, it did not have a pistol competition.  In 2017, for the first time in its 25-year history, the Polk Senior Games conducted a pistol competition sponsored by In-Gauge of Polk County.  The pistol competition continues to be a regular event in the Polk Senior Games annual program.

In-Gauge will be conducting other public events commemorating the NRA’s 150th anniversary through the month of November.

AMMUNITION RECALL – Serious Risk of Firearm Damage and Personal Injury

Always be alert for the occurrence of a squib load and the possibility of a barrel obstruction.

If you do not know what a SQUIB LOAD is and how to recognize it, it is strongly suggested you learn ASAP.

Technically defined, a squib load is an underpowered charge. That underpowered charge could result in a barrel obstruction.

A squib load is most notably recognized by an odd sound. While shooting, should you hear an odd sound, a sound different from the big bang, kaboom or crack, you normally hear or only heard when firing that last volley of shoots, CEASE FIRE immediately, following safe gun handling practices, inspect the gun for a barrel obstruction.

Firing another round, following a squib load, that resulted in a barrel obstruction, could result in the firearm blowing up in your hand and you loosing parts of your hand as a result.

Number 1 . . .

Number 2 . . .

The recalls above are the most recent (June 21, 2021) of two known ones. At the pace manufactures are turning out ammunition, in an attempt to catch up with backorders, quality control has diminished. Always be alert for the occurrence of a squib load and the possibility of a barrel obstruction. It can happen with any ammunition domestic or imported. Be vigilant, be alert, be safe.

You took a concealed carry class. Now, are you qualified?

We train you to defend your life and the lives of your loved ones.

What qualifies you to carry a deadly weapon in public?

With having a concealed carry weapons license also comes responsibility. Being qualified to carry a deadly weapon in public involves more than just having a card in your wallet.

There is a reason we train more Florida concealed carry license holders than any other entity in Polk County and most likely more than all others combined.

Will Rogers once said: “It ain’t bragging if it’s true.”

We have students travel from, as far away as, Naples and Fort Lauderdale to the south and Pensacola and Jacksonville to the north. And, from out-of-state, Texas and Georgia. There is a reason why.

Others may conduct “concealed carry” classes, but we train you to use a firearm to defend your life and the lives of your loved ones. All our firearm training classes qualify the participant for applying for a Florida concealed carry license.

People have called wanting to know what makes this class a “minimum standards” class and how does it differ from a class conducted at a gun show, gun shop or an online class.

The answer is:

  • Our 3 hour ‘minimum standards‘ class is more comprehensive, covering more relevant material and up-to-date current events.
  • Our classes are both informative and entertaining
  • Our are classes are small and interactive
  • You will neither be bored nor fall asleep in one of our classes.
  • We use modern, up-to-date audio-visual equipment
  • This class fulfills the training requirement for applying for a Sate of Florida concealed carry license.
  • Although this class includes the firing of a real, defensive caliber handgun, it does not include handgun training. That is what makes it minimum standards‘.

You will leave this class with an awareness of the use of a firearm for self-defense and the defense of the lives of your loved ones that you never had.  You will be presented with material you never knew existed.  The material presented in this class is unmatched anywhere locallyGuaranteed.

• Gun safety and the fundamentals of handgun handling
• Self-Defense strategies

Following the classroom session, the student will live-fire a real handgun, on a real gun range, for safety and proficiency evaluation, as required by State law, for certification.

This is our most basic concealed carry class. The class includes all the subject material and training required for applying for a State of Florida concealed carry license and includes live-fire, firearm proficiency evaluation.  This is not a firearms training class.

All equipment and materials provided

  • Firearm
  • Ammunition
