Quote:A gun manufacturer is considering buying the entire 620-acre Pike County business park for $2 million to escape an unfriendly gun climate in New York.

Kahr Firearms Group would move its corporate headquarters from in Pearl River, N.Y., to Pike County, bringing a some 100 jobs, company spokesman Frank Harris said.

Some jobs will be temporary construction, others will be administrative and manufacturing. The business would be built in phases.

Already the company has hired engineering, legal and real estate firms to work on the project. It is conducting an executive search for an operations manager to oversee the building phase.

"This land has a lot of woods. We have to clear the land and put in foundations. An operations manager will handle that and hire construction people," Harris said.

The first phase in Pike will begin with site preparation, clearing of trees and office construction as early as late this year.

This will be followed by the relocation of company corporate offices and the research and development department.

Some company executives who will work at the new offices have already purchased homes in Pike County, Harris said.

In the second phase, manufacturing operations will be expanded to the Pike County location to meet an increasing demand for the Kahr Arms, Thompson, Auto-Ordnance and Magnum Research product lines.

As I said elsewhere it doesn't appear to their manufacturing facility.
Still, I hope they do it.

The story in the paper up here said they are starting with the main offices and then down the road future manufacturing will be added to the property.
