Sure, did I use the wrong terminology.....Yep. But atleast I'm man enough to admit it, instead of going off on some other BS tangent about how it's not supporting our US economy... Get real man. If you really knew what all was manufactured in some 3rd world country, you wouldn't buy or own ANYTHING except clothes you made from cotton you grew, and eat only vegitable and animals you raised, and you'd live in a house with no electricity, no heating, no air, and no appliances. You might as well be a caveman with a club and 2 pieces of flint to start a fire...

I don't believe I own any off-shore mfg firearms either.

I'm not trying to antagonize, I'm just tired of people not admitting when they were wrong. I did...And I know for a fact that it won't be the last time I'll be wrong.
I didn't. you took it that way.

Look at it this way. We are both kibitizing on offshore built computers, probably from China.

Just trying in my own small way to instill the difference. Nothing more.

Don't get your panties in a twist. Life is grand, for now.

Now that's funny! And something I can agree with. Never know where we're headin with this current administration (not a fan).

Yeah, I'm sure these junky computers are probably some 3rd rate country built by sweatshop employees. Wouldn't surprise me at all.

I know I said it wrong at first...That was my bad. I was just trying to get my point across. I had been told about their manufacture process before by a Zeiss rep, but I couldn't remember any major details, which is what was causing me to be thrown off.

Re: Zeiss Conquest scopes made in Asia

It's a non-issue with me. I'd still like to know about Leupold and their offshore content and where they are made. Leupy is very cagey about that stuff.

I know where Vortex Vipers are made and it's not mainland USA.

The made in/assembled in thing gets my goat because of motorcycles. I'm in the aftermarket motorcycle acessory business and I'm always around chest thumping, testosterone gushing Harleyites, so I like to deflate them when I can. They don't want to hear about their 'Made in USA' bikes that are actually assembled here from sourced parts that are mostly offshore....

Really pisses them off. Thats neither here nor there, but they do like to spend money on chrome and loud pipes. I have no problem with either. In fact, if the knew the markup, they'd probably have a stroke.

No, I don't own one but I do have a garage full of bikes, just not any HD's.

I have always rode bikes. Dad has always rode bikes. Granddad....You get the point. LOL For my 5th birthday dad bought me a Honda XR50 (no training wheels). I have always been a badass on a bike. Raced Moto-X from age 6-16. When I was 19 I got a new 06 GSXR 600. Sold it in 2009 and got a new Harley Rocker C, b/c dad was getting an Ultra and wanted us to ride together again like the good old days. I do have Freedom Performance Amendments on my bike, which ade made in NoCal by Americans...Proudly might I add. Their customer service is excellent. You actually get an english speaking American citizen when you call. LOL if you don't sell their pipes, you should look into them. They sound incredible.

Re: Zeiss Conquest scopes made in Asia

Entirely off thread but I held my AMA professional license for many years. I know Gene Romero and Skip Van Leewuen personally. Skip is one of my suppliers btw. I rode with Jack Penton and his kids back in the day. I was a Hare Scrambler ISDT rider. Rode a works Penton 250 ISDT bike.

The old bones can't take that anymore. I have a Triumph Bonneville with a sidecar, a couple Nortons and a Kawasaki ADV bike that I 'play' with ocassionally.

At my age (over 60 by a ways), I prefer more sedate hobbies. I'm more about riding in my Caddilac than anything else or flying somewhere.

I can still pack in for a hunt and camp out in the boonies but I prefer a lodge with a chef and room service. Thats the nice thing about this hobby, you can choose how much abuse you want to inflict on yourself. It's only predicated by your wallet capacity.

Have a good evening and a great day tomorrow.....
