CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) -- A company that makes gun sights and other firearms accessories says it's pulling its core operations from Colorado following recent gun control measures there and setting up shop in Laramie.

HiViz Shooting Systems, based in Fort Collins, Colo., manufactures sights, recoil pads and other shooting accessories. The company's management has been open about its dissatisfaction with recent Colorado gun control legislation.

Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead announced he welcomes HiViz to Wyoming. The governor's office says the company intends to set up operations in Laramie with 14 employees with more to come later this year.

Mead's office has been courting firearms companies to relocate to Wyoming.

Another Colorado company, Magpul, says it has begun manufacturing gun accessories out-of-state but it hasn't revealed where yet.
