The 280 and the 280 AI have the same 1/2" @ 100 yds guarantee. They come with a target shot from the factory @ 42 yds and most are one hole groups. I would go with the Ackley, but that's me and I'm a speed freak. Faster bullet more down range potential.

Yes and Sara Lee makes a fine pound cake as well but I will not spend monies with them because a portion of that money goes to people and causes that want to remove my 2nd Amendment rights. Just don't squeal when Osama and his friends do away with your ability to do what you like to do.

No difference in principal just a different product.

"Ex owner" - No one has ever suggested that Dan Cooper no longer owns, or is a principal of, Cooper Firearms. It was only stated that he was asked to step down as CEO. That symbolic step is all about saving face and $$$$$$.

"We all have our freedom to choose. I will support them, they make a fine rifle" - Yes, and many American sportsmen will use that freedom to choose another manufacturer who supports the 2nd amendment with their dollars and endorsements.

And for whatever it's worth,; I fully support Dan's right to support Obama with his money and/or personal endorsement of him as President. However, like all other decisions we make in life, there are usually consequences for the decisions we make, good or bad. Maybe Obama will return the favor by offering Dan a nice cabinet spot in the Homeland Defense Administration, who knows.

That is foolish to support a company that supports a politician that wants to end your gun rights..

Re: Cooper

I really dont want to step all over alldayhunter's thread but here is a letter that I just emailed to Cooper Arms

Quote:
To Whom It May Concern,

I was very shocked and disappointed to learn of Dan Cooper’s contributions to the Obama campaign for President. I was conversely very glad to see the swift response and action of your board of directors in asking for Mr. Cooper’s resignation and his agreement to do so. Although I respect Mr. Cooper’s right to his political views and support of any candidate he chooses, I am very bewildered by his choice to support Barak Obama who is now the President Elect of our country. President Elect Obama has a very clear anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment record. As a gun owner and supporter of the Second Amendment, I am concerned that a gun enthusiast and manufacturer such as Mr Cooper, who throws his support to a demonstrated anti-gun candidate, can significantly erode and harm gun owner privileges in this country, as it sends a very confusing signal to those might believe that Mr. Obama poses no threat to our privileges. His record and candid statements are very clear.

As I stated earlier, I am glad to see the action taken by the company to correct this breech of trust by Mr. Cooper. I think that Cooper Firearms of Montana makes a fine rifle and I hope and plan to support your company in the future, however, I would like to know that your company is completely severing its business relations with Mr. Cooper and that he is dissolving all of his interests and holdings in the company. I do not want to think that my support of Cooper Arms will in turn support Mr Cooper whom I believe supports a president that is committed to removing the many great privileges our constitution provides for us, gun ownership being only one. I can assure you that I am not alone in this sentiment. I am an active member of two online shooting forums and have read many threads from others. I am also a life member of the NRA.

In order to reestablish trust with your supporters and clientele, I think it is important that the Cooper Arms Company takes some clear steps in severing its ties with Mr. Cooper and affirming its support of our constitutional freedoms based on the recently transpired events.

I do not demand, but humbly suggest that your company completely sever its relations, including holdings with Mr. Cooper and make this public and transparent.

I also suggest that your company make a strong and clear statement reaffirming its commitment to our Second Amendment privileges and that you in no way support President Elect Obama in regards to his position on gun ownership freedoms.

I know your company has been thrust into a very difficult situation. I believe swift and decisive action along these lines will go a long way in reestablishing trust with your supporters.

Sincerely Yours,

Mark Weiser
Bozeman, Mt


I challange any of you to send a similar letter to the other US manufacturers asking them to make their commitment for or against the president elect. If you are sincere in your convictions, which I have no reason to believe otherwise, you would hold them to the same scrutiny as Cooper Arms
