Earlier this week, our friend Ron Norton of
Inland manufacturing came down to Tennessee from the Inland
plant in Dayton, Ohio, for a visit. He brought some fun stuff
with him: one of the newly-introduced Inland/Ithaca Model 37
WWII-style shotguns, complete with vintage bayonet; one of the
new Inland "Advisor" M1 Carbine semi-auto pistols (the
Advisor is a legal pistol, requiring no ATF tax stamp to own); and
a REALLY cool NFA/SBR selective-fire version of the Advisor,
complete with folding "Paratrooper" style buttstock
and "giggle switch". (He also brought with him a
beautiful vintage guitar that he had picked-up along the way, as
Ron and I share a love of vintage guitar collecting).
We had a great time with Ron, playing with
the Advisors (although, admittedly, the semi-auto didn't get
much attention with its M2 sister on-hand) and the Model 37,
talking guns and history, and shooting up Ron's ammo. Inland is
making some very impressive and historically-accurate products,
and we look forward to more extensive testing in the future.
Inland products are made in America, and made right.
