OAUSA Net - September 19, 2019 - Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Products Made In The USA

Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Products made in the USA

One of my favorite nets!!!

Today, it may seem that everything is made in some foreign country, but its not true, and not by a long shot. For decades now we have become addicted to the low prices that usually accompany foreign made stuff. And, so much so that many "American" companies have resorted to moving their production to other countries where the labor is cheap.

But, despite all of this, there is good news, and a lot of it. For those who favor American made products, AND who appreciate high quality, long lasting, innovative and well made shooting, hunting and outdoor products, there is a whole lot from which to choose. The downside, (if you can call it that), is that often times these products take a little more effort to find, but the effort to do so is well worth it.

Often times during these nets, we highlight a variety of products that we have discovered that are perfect for our type of activities, or excel at a particular function, AND are made in the USA. We hope to do so again during the net, and we encourage everyone who has discovered what we have, to join in the discussion.
