Same here, and less than an hour drive for me. I wonder if they'll allow "drop-ins" for repairs?

It will be interesting to see if their employees there will be a union workforce like they are in Yonkers. Alabama is a "Right to work" state" afterall......

Hopefully building another facility will cut the lag between Kimber announcing new products and actually seeing them in dealers stores.

Also sets the stage for depriving NY of revenue.

I love it!
