No more Winchesters? Say it ain't so!

(Via the Yahoo LongRangeRifle group)

Word is that US Repeating Arms (which is owned by a Belgian firm, Herstal Group), will be closing the Winchester factory in New Haven, CT on March 31. Around 200 people will lose their jobs.

First Ithaca, now Winchester? There are continual rumors that Remington is on the edge. This is not good--not good at all.
