    Kimber moves next door.

    I work in Yonkers, NY. Kimber's factory, in the old section of Yonkers, is about 4 miles from my office. I was called in there once to work with them on a new take-down tool (which never went into production). The outside of the building looked to be 100 years old; the inside looked well-lit and busy with lots of workers and lots of CNC machines humming along.

    I take my dog to work with me every day and I walk him several times a day. I usually walk south from our building. But yesterday he wanted to walk north so we did that. Less than 1/4 mile from our office I saw a sign on the driveway to a large abandoned factory that said: In case of emergency call Kimber (then there was a phone number).

    I drove by there this morning on the way to work and drove up the driveway (you cannot see the building until you drive up that driveway). There is a new 10' tall fence and some construction vehicles on the grounds.

    It looks like Kimber is moving next door. I don't know if they are going to move the existing factory (in two small buildings) or use this as an extension factory. I assume that they will move. This building was built about 1960 - 1970 and is larger than the two old buildings they currently occupy.

    Not really news worthy, but interesting to me (and my dog).

    They should move next door to me, then maybe I could talk to an actual person, or at least scream "why don't you return your messages?????" over the fence.

    I just looked them up and they are in Bayonne, NJ.

    What surprises me the most is that there are a few gun manufacturers in one of the most anti-gun states in the USA. Massachusetts.
