Even better, google "made in usa site:forums.1911forum.com" (without the quotes). This has been covered here several times, and that's the kind of search the typical forum's own search engine doesn't narrow down very well.

Ruger is another one, btw.

In NH, no less.
What do you mean, "no less?" NH is one of the few states left worth living in. No income tax, no sales tax, easy gun laws, home of Sig USA and Ruger, etc, etc. A liberal's worst nightmare. Live free or die!

I used to live in Maine and admired the "Live Free or Die" motto of New Hampshire and what seemed like a solid conservative spot locked up in liberal New England. Major cool points. Good for you guys.

However, don't you allow people to vote across party lines in your primaries. Loss of major cool points for that.

In 2008, didn't you send all four of your electoral votes to the Democrat candidate? Another major loss of cool points.

I realize your problems are really caused by the major influx of the Boston, Mass., crowd leaving "Taxachussets" for your tax haven status, but you guys are pretty far down the road to being just another one of those New England "Blue States". Prove me wrong this time around and get the Republican elected.

oh we will prove you wrong. NH is going red this time. Our problem lies with our two biggest city's in southern NH. They are overrun with people from Mass. However 90% of NH other than the southern part are solid conservatives. We will take back our state, and help take back our country from the socialist Dems.

Got to give you credit for trying even if there is not much hope. Was just up in NE a couple of weeks ago! Great people, wonderful drive from Hartford to Newport then back. If it were not for the taxes and the liberals I would move there in a heartbeat. Been it Texas for 50 years and it is time to get a big enough boat and have fun fishing in the salt water!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is what I had 2 weeks ago in Newport:

Sure hope you are right about this. Another poster was on the right track re the liberals from MA, CT, NY etc infiltrating our fine state. They have done minimal damage so far but the conservatives are becoming outnumbered. May be just a matter of time before NH resembles CA. Hopefully long enough that it wont matter to many of us.

Ok,there's Colt. Anybody mention them yet?

Hope I live long enough to visit New Hampshire. Would like to see the whole NE;but,will probably limit it to NH and VT.

I love this thread! We've established that there are many brands of 1911's made by Americans. God bless every one of them. We may want to consider our personal favorite. Not to knock any particular one; we're just having so much fun.

I vote Ed Brown
