    I don't think I would wait too long. First good offer and I would be retirement bound!

    Don't take it so serious!

    I hope who ever buys it keeps it American made and don't start out sourcing to Mexico or China

    any truth to the rumors that they are planning on closing up shop within the next couple of weeks?
    Can you point me toward the target, please?

    Not care about an American company that is one of the original founding archery companies and is still in business but struggling? Sounds like someone doesn't care about America.


    As stated above, great products.

    X2 on what Fury90flier said. Archery wouldn't be what it is today without companies like Martin archery. It will be a sad, sad day for sport of archery if they don't make it through this.

    I'll add my $.02.,, I've owned bows from mathews, hoyt, and martin.. All good products.. I always keep going back to martin. My last purchase was a 2012 Martin Silencer and I couldn't be happier. For the price I paid I have a great shooting bow that fits me well. I'm on a budget like most people, and I found quality and value in their product.

    That may be true, but what does the archery world gain by them going under. Maybe think about all the employees out of a job if it happens, how would that make you feel then if your job was on the line and nobody cared. Times are mighty tough right now and being unemployed is not a good thing even if you don't shoot their brand of bow, personally i don't want to see another pioneer go down or anyone else looking for a job in this economy.

    Probably not possible financially or we wouldn't be having this conversation.

    Martin is a very well known name in the archery industry. On the name alone I don't think they will have to hard of a time selling it if the price is right.

    company may be loaded up with too much debt for anyone to be able to see how it can recover...just speculating.
    Can you point me toward the target, please?
