Kimber is opening a new plant!

Just read a small article in my American Rifleman announcing that Kimber is going to build a new plant in Troy Alabama. Suppose to be ready early 2019. I enjoyed reading that for some reason. Also getting enjoyment posting it.

I was afraid I might have missed the post about it thanks Chuck I guess I should have done a search. I get a little lazy at times.

Oh, I dunno... It's never "old' news until the plant is BUILT! They've been promising us a Kroger about 2 miles away for FOUR YEARS! It's still a cow pasture. (I suppose you COULD call it a grass-fed beef meat dept? But -- waaaaaay too much work!)

I think when Kimber starts to stamp the slide "Troy, AL" I'll dump my commie state "Yonkers, NY" for the upgrades.
