Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. Reports Strong First Quarter Bookings (Suspending new orders!)
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/sturm-ruger-company-inc-reports-210500267.html ^

Posted on 03/21/2012 2:45:27 PM PDT by Red in Blue PA

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR), announced today that for the first quarter 2012, the Company has received orders for more than one million units. Therefore, the Company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.

Chief Executive Officer Michael O. Fifer made the following comments:

•The Company’s Retailer Programs that were offered from January 1, 2012 through February 29, 2012 were very successful and generated significant orders from retailers to independent wholesale distributors for Ruger firearms. •Year-to-date, the independent wholesale distributors placed orders with the Company for more than one million Ruger firearms. •Despite the Company’s continuing successful efforts to increase production rates, the incoming order rate exceeds our capacity to rapidly fulfill these orders. Consequently, the Company has temporarily suspended the acceptance of new orders.

Thanks Obama!

(seriously, we do have him to thank for this)

I am goinhg out shopping this weekend for a nice new .410 shotgun I saw.

Small enough for indoor home defense if needed, without taking out a support wall

I met the Prez of ruger recently. I thought he was really great guy. He was excited about his products and was standing there demonstrating them.

Did they recently introduce a 1911-style pistol?

I always liked Jeff Cooper's concept of a Scout Rifle, but the cost of the Steyr Mannlicher was prohibitive. When Ruger released this model...

...it really caught my attention. I wonder if it could be tweaked so it would use the same mags as my AR-10...

That is on my Wish List along with the Ruger 1911.

Both are nowhere to be had because of extreme demand.

Ruger’s compact 9 mm. their LC9, is a nice CCW pistol. Laserlyte makes a side mount laser for it.

They have a lot of models that people like.

Their new lightweight compact (LCR) revolver (38/357). The equivalent small semi auto LCP (38/357). Small 9mm LC9. Larger SR9 semiauto.

Check out the Ruger P series. I’ve a P-91DC (.40cal). Great pistol.

I have both the LC9 and the LCP. Love the size, but hate the triggers on both. What I do not understand is the trigger pull on the LC9. At least the horrible trigger on the LCP can be explained away as the LCP has no safety....the LC9 has one though. Who on earth thought that trigger was a good idea?

I have the LCP .380 and the fullsize SR9 9mm. I am thinking about trying to trade them together for an AR of some sort.

Crimson trace makes a better laser for your LC9!

If anybody wants anything firearm related this year, I’d be getting it now...stores are already seeing difficulty in replacing stock of guns, ammo, and some popular accessories.

Ruger: “Their new lightweight compact (LCR) revolver (38/357).”

Bought one a few weeks ago - light, no exposed hammer, easy to pull trigger. I am female so it’s a great gun for me. Also easy to conceal and no exposed trigger to get caught on anything. Costs a lot of money - didn’t care, bought it.

My favorite caliber in the Blackhawks is the 30 Carbine, I’ve got some 85 grain loads that come out at close to 2000 fps. Factory loads out of one will clean the wax out of your ears and blow a flame about 5ft.

Those .30 Carbine Blackhawks are loud. A local shop has a Hawkeye show up LNIB recently... It was tempting but where the heck do you find .256 Winchester?

Wouldn’t mind getting me a 10/22 setup to shoot pennies at 100 yards. Would also be good for the kids to shoot with. I let them shoot the AR now, which has more than manageable recoil for just about anyone, but is still a bit much gun for a 10 year old(girl). Next birthday, I’ll turn’em loose on the PTR-91 and Saiga-12. :p

Thats a good round, I prefer it over the 44 Mag. I’ve got 7 1/2 inch stainless Blackhawk in 45 Long Colt that I sent back to Ruger and had a 45 ACP cylinder made for it. Load it with Corbon or Buffalo Bore loads and it’s a thumper, or swap cylinders and load it with 45 ACP’s and it’s nice and gentle.

Yea, I could procure a box here and there to sit with the .32-20 and .38 Long and Short Colt I’ve accumulated. But I’m not the reloading type, more into stockpiling.

You are spot on re: the Ruger LCR. The trigger pull is so smooth. Lightweight (13.5 oz. unloaded) double action 5-shot revolver is ideal for CCW. Use .38 Spl +P rounds and it’s a great personal defense package.

I didn’t know what I needed, but man behind the counter knew and said this is what you need. Anyone breaks in my house will get it. I am 5’5” and don’t weigh a lot, but I’m no pansy when I pull that trigger.

It looks like the first .22 auto I would consider owning.

You had to send it back to Ruger? I purchased mine with both cylinders. But I do enjoy having both options to shoot. Didn;t get the 7 1/2 inch barrel. I like mine a little shorter; easier to hide if I want to under a nice jacket.

“Didn;t get the 7 1/2 inch barrel. I like mine a little shorter; easier to hide if I want to under a nice jacket.”

And there in lies the problem, they didn’t make the 7 1/2 inch stainless model with convertable cylinders.
