    I heard a rumor today that Delta had a big fire today and their building burnt to the ground. I don't know anything for sure but this is what I was told.

    couldn't you do a search to find out if it was true? I would think you could find a headline or something?

    A couple years ago, Delta bought McKenzie's 3D target line, and the name.
    When you buy a McKenzie, Delta cashes the check.
    I've noticed some diminished quality in the paint jobs and finish, to save a few bucks obviously, but the molds are the same, and the new foam is much easier to pull, and they seem to be holding up better than they used to.

    Chris is right. We'll have to see.
