I am glad most of the equipment shooters use is American made, or at least not made by Red China. I hate it when American companies that produced their products here, go to China to make an extra buck, so many have done so over the years, fewer people have any bucks to buy their products. The K-Bar company imports from China! I don't know if the "original" K-bar is now made in China, but lots of their stuff is. So much stuff "made in Canada" is actually made in China, and imported in to the U.S. under NAFTA as Canada made goods. I go out of my way to buy American, on every purchase I make. can't always find it, but at least I try. My second choice is from a country that is at least friendly to us, and not supporting North Korea's A-bomb/missle projects.
