    The better question is.......who cheated by googling the addresses before answering? :laugh:

    Just for grins, I got Springfield, Colt, Glock, S&W, and Noveske without googling. Drew a blank on the rest.

    Yeah, that!

    I got 4. Colt, Ruger, S&W & Noveske from memory, but wouldn't have been close on any others. Remington should be Illion!

    Wow, folks really know their gun makers. Correct Answers:

    A. 420 West Main Street. Geneseo, IL
    Springfield Armory, Inc. Note Armalite is also headquartered in Geneseo.

    B. 545 New Park Avenue. West Hartford, CT
    The prancing pony - Colt's Firearms Manufacturing Company. Looks like everyone got it.

    C. 1475 Cox Road. Cocoa, FL
    Kel-Tec CNC Industries

    D. PO Box 700. Madison, NC
    This is the Remington Arms Company headquarters. The original main plant is actually in Illion, NY and probably would have been a better choice as orygun noted.

    E. 1 Lacey Place. Southport, CT
    Sturm Ruger & Co.

    F. 6000 Highlands Parkway. Smyrna, GA
    Glock, Inc. The mothership of course is in Deutsch-Wagram, a suburb of Vienna from what I understand.

    G. 100 Roosevelt Avenue. Springfield, MA
    Smith & Wesson.

    H. 594 NE E St. Suite A. Grants Pass, OR
    Noveske Rifleworks Props to Oregonians for knowing their own.

    I. 921 Main Street. Worcester, MA
    The challenge. This was a placeholder for the original Harrington & Richardson Firearms firm, whose street address changed a few times. I actually goofed and listed the home address of William Richardson, who lived down the street.

    Why a challenge? H&R went out of business in 1986. :)

    Anyway, looks like I'll hafta scrounge my basement for more prizes - so far, qualityfishing and netcarrier have nailed this. :thumbup:
