    That is not the smartest remark I have ever heard.

    Are you talking about "man of golden rule" Mr. T?
    I think he's heavier.

    They seem expensive but...no servicing required and they last forever. Pretty hard to get around using something that is made in China, whether one is completely aware of it or not.

    Like a Boeing aircraft for instance, many of the parts of which are now made in China.

    I have both the USA Punch bells and the Dragon Door Bells and have to admit that the Dragon Door Bells have a better finish and a nice flat bottom. I got the China made Dragon Door bell before the Punch bells were made in the USA. I would rather support an American made product than one made in a dictatorship like China.

    Your right, sometimes you don't have a choice with using China made products and sometimes you do. I have no doubts that lots of China made products are safe and of excellent quality. However, the fact is: China is a Communist dictatorship where the people do not live free.

    I couldn't be happier with your products and am a true advocate for your literature and DVD's. I've turned many people onto kettlebells and your excellent training materials. But I, like a lot of people that see what is happening to this country/economy are becoming more aware of how their product choices affect the welfare of the country. I agree that the China bells are of great quality but supporting the country that lets you have religious freedom, reproduce as you see fit and own a profitable business has a quality all of its own.

    No worries, Dean. Actually I might not have been accurate with my statement. I just looked at their site & I don't really see anything that specifically says "Made in the USA." I thought I read they were, but...
