    Some of you may be aware that Magpul operates and does all of it's production just outside of Boulder, CO.

    There was a vote today (verbal, not a full vote) to ban hi-cap mags in CO and the verbal vote passed. Afterward, Magpul made a statement that if the vote passed they would leave CO for greener pastures as 'hi-cap' mags are their primary business and all the other hardware is secondary.

    After realizing that Magpul would leave (and would take ~$85 million in tax revenue as well as a few hundred jobs, the Democunts in Colorado started realizing that they done goofed and started claiming they were going to amend the bill to try and get Magpul to stay.

    Part of me hopes that it passes just so Magpul can tell the state of Colorado to fuck off. But at the same time I hope it fails miserable because it's what should happen.

    Update: LaRue Tactical is filling all backorders for PMAGs out of Colorado before anyone else just in case this vote passes in an attempt to make sure the guys in CO get there shit.

    LaRue is good people.

    I can't see how they can amend the bill if it is a ban on normal capacity mags

    not passing it is the only way

    of course they will still be able to continue to stay in business there

    keep selling to free states and pay us the taxes

    they should move to Texas if only for the state bringing this up

    Every gun manufacturer, gun parts manufacturer, anybody that has anything to do with the gun industry, should not be based or doing any business with any government that poses any restrictions on civilian gun ownership of any kind. Period.

    There's a few companies that have stopped selling to New York LE/Gov't agencies, including LaRue and Olympic Arms. I also heard that CheaperThanDirt.com, even though they are shitty and absurdly expensive and price gauging assholes that will never get my business again, are following suit.

    MAGPUL has already announced they are leaving, they are looking at all options, several surrounding states have already been making offers to MAGPUL including tax incentives to relocate. IF they leave, it will mean 200 jobs directly at MAGPUL and upto 400 total from various vendors. Also a loss of about $8.7 million in tax revenue to the state, not to mention the loss of sales tax tot he surrounding areas, the town were MAGPUL is located estimates that would be at least 1/3 of their sales tax revenue will be gone.

    Magpul just announced the details of their efforts to supply Colorado residents with standard capacity AR magazines.

    Magpul is proud to announce the “Boulder Airlift”, our program to make sure that responsible Colorado citizens have the opportunity to own standard capacity PMAGs prior to the potential implementation of pending legislation that would infringe on their Second Amendment Rights. The program will be open to all responsible CO residents, (with both billing and shipping addresses inside CO) and provide access to a limited quantity of PMAGs. Remember to contact members of the Senate and the Governor prior to ordering and urge them to oppose HB 1224.
    Similar to the Berlin Airlift, the Boulder Airlift will bring much needed supplies to freedom-loving residents trapped inside occupied territory. While we plan to initially use FedEx or UPS instead of aerial delivery, we figure that $5 flat rate shipping will make up for any loss of “style points.”
    The increases we have made and continue to make in production capacity will allow us to open this program with very minimal impact on the number of PMAGs we are shipping to our dealers and distributors out of the state. We are also aware that Colorado is not the only state with existing or pending magazine capacity restrictions; we are working on programs for other affected states as well.​
    Full details are available at magpul.com/Colorado

    Magpul is getting ready to produce PMAGS out of state in advance of Colorado Governor Hickenlooper’s signature of a bill banning magazines with a capacity of greater than 15 rounds. From Magpul’s announcement earlier today:


    Apparently Gov Hickenlooper has announced that he will sign HB 1224 on Wednesday. We were asked for our reaction, and here is what we said:
    We have said all along that based on the legal problems and uncertainties in the bill, as well as general principle, we will have no choice but to leave if the Governor signs this into law. We will start our transition out of the state almost immediately, and we will prioritize moving magazine manufacturing operations first. We expect the first PMAGs to be made outside CO within 30 days of the signing, with the rest to follow in phases. We will likely become a multi-state operation as a result of this move, and not all locations have been selected. We have made some initial contacts and evaluated a list of new potential locations for additional manufacturing and the new company headquarters, and we will begin talks with various state representatives in earnest if the Governor indeed signs this legislation. Although we are agile for a company of our size, it is still a significant footprint, and we will perform this move in a manner that is best for the company and our employees.
    It is disappointing to us that money and a social agenda from outside the state have apparently penetrated the American West to control our legislature and Governor, but we feel confident that Colorado residents can still take the state back through recalls, ballot initiatives, and the 2014 election to undo these wrongs against responsible Citizens.​
