AYNOR, S.C. (AP) - When Connecticut gun maker PTR Industries was trying to find a new home, CEO Josh Fiorini got offers from about 40 states.

Many of them had similar terms and incentives, but South Carolina won out, thanks to the state's relentless efforts to woo the company and its personal touch.

It is a mantra heard plenty of times by executives that have decided to locate their businesses in South Carolina.

The state is now trying to get more gun makers to move south. Connecticut-based Stag Arms was in Horry County late last week, listening to pitches from local leaders.
