This makes me rethink about the potential purchase of a new bow that I have been contimplating. I will send in my concerns to my congressman
Better think about a horse and buggy too as half your present car is made overseas. Just about anything you buy is filled with pieces from foreign shores. I believe PSE still makes their bows here.

Yes I realize this David, but the vehicle I drive is an International Travelall. I can't say that it is 100% American made, but I think pretty much close to that. I try to be very conscious about the purchases I make. Particulary when it comes to making purchases involving my heritage. Alot of times I find myself paying a little more (sometimes much more) just to make sure it was made in America. I know this can't always be avoided, but I feel compelled to stick to my principles.

As far as I'm concerned if hunting equipment manufactures are moving out of the US to not pay taxes and as a result don't support the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service fund as Precision Shooting Equipment Inc. has done I won't buy their products, plain and simple.

I'll do my part to offset that 12.5% tax with a loss of market share.

This article says alot about Easton and their principles and I will continue to buy their products (until they move out of the US).

Why in hell would this idiot block this legislation?
Kickbacks and "politicking." Lobist in his pocket.

Just one of the reasons I switched from selling AFC's. They used to be made here in Minnesota - now overseas. Switched to Blackhawk Vapors - seems to be a good shaft and the price is good too. I just hate to see that made in Korea, etc. on products.
