    Assuming other things are equal, it makes sense to move mfg., shipping, etc. *next door* to WY but why are the big wigs coming here?

    Some kind of personal tax advantage? Long term market strategy?

    In guessing they got subsidies from both states that grossly exceeded the cost of the move. Also, perhaps shipping from Wyoming is more advantageous than Texas due to its location.

    I'll be sure to pick up a bunch of 'Made in TX or Wyoming' Pmags when they start appearing.

    I prefer USGI mags (cuz the FNC and FS2000 had issues with Pmags) but will gladly support a company that walks the walk.

    I'm sure the bean counters were heavily involved.

    It's kind of saddens me that Texas gets the Korporate Kool-Aid drinkers and Wyoming gets the working man.

    My guess, they're looking to Las Colinas/Irving/Lewisville area. Seems to be where a lot of Corporate offices are. They'd have easy access to DFW airport too. Both office and warehouse spaces in N. DFW area are booming with growth.

    Overall that is great news for Texas. I hope both TX and Magpul benefit readily from the relationship. I am interested to see if/when/how the 2014election is impacted somehow.
