    I wonder if the tax structure, union complications, or price of real estate was the prime motive behind this...if not all equally so. Strange to see this old Hartford name so far south.

    Absolutely sheepdog. The most business friendly states are FL,NV,TX, and SC.

    Right to work state. All of the south is. Unions will either destroy this nation or go the way of the dinasours. Lets hope the latter.

    I can't wait til they get here, then I can drive to the factory. They will be @ 2hours from my home in SW Florida. I think we will be seeing a lot of mfg companies moving south to escape the liberal Madness of higher taxes, higher utilities and overpaid union flunkies. COLT WELCOME TO THE GUNSHINE STATE.

    I said the same thing LK about Winchester when they announced they were "going out of business" only to open up a couple of years later in the Carolinas...They HAD to get out of the North East because the Unions were killing them. I say good for Colt. I hope they have good business success in Florida!

    Actually,I'm surprised Colt stayed as long as it did in a historically anti-2nd amendment state as it did.

    Good move guys! :thumb:

    In the early 1990's Springfield Armory here in Illinois had trouble with the Union. Some jackasses got the union in there, and it took Springfield going belly up and re-structuring just to get rid of them. Nobody made any more money, or got more benefits. The union did collect their dues however.

    even though companies are relocating, they are having to battle to NLRB just to get started. Boeing is having a hard time because of these folks here in SC.
