Damn guys. I don't know if I should be happy or sad? Kevin are you still running things? Will anything change?

Congratulations by the way!

If you guys are happy, than I am happy as well.

Congratulations!

I've done work photography work with 45 or so manufacturers within the firearm community, my images have been used for catalogs, magazines, covers, etc. I have also shot work for the US Military. I am prior service and a full time LEO.

I now also shoot and write for Military Times. My primary focus will stay with weapons, accessories and related equipment reviews. Manufacturers can reach me through any of the boards. Have something new? Let me know.

Remember, every aspect of a person's quality of life is directly related to the amount of capital invested per person. More $$$ for R&D and more manufacturing capacity sounds good to me. :)

Keep all the clothing the same. I don't want Remington on any of the apparel. If it's required print it on the inside.

Also, will Remington be on any of the cans?

Congratulations, I know there are some nerveous individuals! However you have become the success you are, by doing the work you do! For remington to want to change that would be very unreasonable! Keep up all the great work!

Will this affect your ability to put on next years shoot? I'm asking because they may be afraid of liability if something goes wrong.

On other notes congrats.

Remember what got you to this point and never turn back on that...
I love AAC because of the quality, customer service, reputation, and inovation.

The fact that you guys never settle for "good enuff" is outstanding. Some may be upset that thier M42K or EVO9 is not the latest version but the fact that you even go thru the effort to make improvements is great.

I also respect how you guys kept your word on the Prodigy, especially since I own one. :wink:
Going a little more discrete here due to some of my opinions...

This.

Also, are you going to expand the Norcross location or move to a different facility [hope I didn't miss that somewhere]?

I have to say, I'm a little scared. I've seen a lot companies go down the tubes when they get bought out by big corporate entities. I hope AAC can maintain its quality and attention to detail and not lose sight of what is important when the company big-whigs come around.

This.......

But if this now means that you are able to hire more people, where can I find an application?

Congratulations to everyone at AAC. The fact that this company was sought out to join Remington's future mission is no accident.

I bought my first can based on a general consensus among owners that you build a great product and support it with excellent client service. You have exceeded my expectations in both areas.

Having worked for the last eight years with companies looking to grow their businesses in a shrinking marketplace, you stand as a shining example of the simplicity of success. Build a good product and support it with great people who have the tools to exceed client expectations.

Congratulations to the whole staff at AAC and, if Remington is smart, they will give you the money, the tools and the space...and then stand back and allow you to simply become a more powerful version of what made you so attractive to them in the first place.

Good luck!!

One quick question, Cerebrus is the parent company, ....... but AAC is now a child company of Remington and not Cerebrus correct?

AAC stays the same. We'll have the ability to expand production immediately.

We are all looking forward to the changes that we will make in the next few months. You are not going to see "Remington silencers" or "Remington Branded For LIFERS". We are AAC the same crew, the same everything...only more powerful than before.

Don't worry guys, your tats still mean business. :twisted:
