Layoffs at Remington, a huge arms/ammo manufacturing entity and something of a bellwether for the industry.
Layoffs at Colt, too – including Brent Turchi, head of the Custom Shop, who has long been one of Colt’s great ambassadors. American industry has an unfortunate habit of trying to lose weight by cutting away brain tissue instead of fat. Rumor is that Mark Redl will be adding Brent’s duties to his own. Mark is another of Colt’s great assets.
NRA seems to see some light at the end of the tunnel for Colt, and I hope they’re right.
Discussion of same here.
