Jackson, Miss. –-(Ammoland.com)- At a press conference held on Friday, July 26 2013, Governor Phil Bryant announced that TALON Ordnance, a tactical firearms manufacturing facility, is coming to Mississippi.

TALON Ordnance’s premium, service-grade weapons will be manufactured in Ridgeland, Miss., with 100% made in the USA parts. TALON is the first production-scale weapons manufacturing facility to originate in the state of Mississippi.

Military veteran Clay Baldwin is one of TALON’s founders and CEO. He has over 18 years of experience in law enforcement and military operations, and continues to serve in the Army Reserve. Baldwin is originally from Magee, Miss., and has lived in the Madison area for many years.

“Weapons manufacturing is a highly researched, highly recruited industry and we are proud to be a homegrown effort that will remain based in Mississippi,” said Baldwin.

The company will initiate production this fall with a tactical rifle based on the AR-15 platform, with the first rifles off the line in January 2014. TALON is located at 106 Business Park Drive, Ridgeland, Miss., in the 220/Highland Colony Business Park.

Currently, the company looks to employ approximately 10 people and is expected to grow to about 50 employees in the near future.

Welcome to Mississippi looking forward to buying your products from a desert storm vet


I’m next door in Louisiana and this is great, having a factory that’s right next door. I will be able to go to the factory and back home in the same day.

Welcome to the South, where we value our rights and “we cling to our guns”.

Dear Talon and Joe Bynum.
I’m interested in being employed by Talon. I spent 12 years in the military. In which I was trained to operate a arms room. I did receive the armored training in the year of 2008 when I was station at fort sill, Oklahoma.

I am so proud to have a Mississippi based arms manufacturing company. I can’t wait for the day when I might be able to buy one of your products. I wish you the best of luck in your venture.

Welcome to the Magnolia State, Talon! It’s a good thing that manufacturing of weaponry is moving to or starting up in a state with its nearly 125 years of Second Amendment freedom, and looking like it’s guaranteed to continue for at least that many years to come. Maybe this will be the first of a wave of arms organizations moving to a gun-friendly state from their current locations. Come on, Magpul! Come on, National Shooting Sports Foundation!
