RUGER WITHDRAWS FROM THE ESOS (Excellent news!)
mynortheastoutdoors.com ^

Posted on 01/22/2013 3:17:16 PM PST by Red in Blue PA

Ruger has decided not to attend the upcoming Eastern Sports Show. We are very frustrated by Reed Exhibitions’ foolish decision to ban the display of modern sporting rifles.

We feel that, as one of America’s firearms manufacturers, we must withdraw from the show as a commitment to the 2nd Amendment rights of our customers.

That was a much stronger worded statement than what some of the others have made.
That is good. Thank You Ruger.

Everyone valuing the 2nd should write Ruger a letter of thanks.

I will.

Good for Ruger! Love my stainless Redhawk. Oh! Wait! I traded it for an old steel guitar.

Ruger’s position on this pivotal issue validates my long-standing favor of their excelent products.

Ya, mine went for a vintage 60’s kazoo that was used by Led Zeplin.

Thank you Ruger, even though I picked up a 10/22 takedown last week, I think I’ll pick up another one this week.

My 10/22 take down is now one of my favorite guns (from my cold dead hands libs) and now I am looking at the Ruger Scout for my next gun. Would love to see Ruger come out with an AR in .308, the original design by Stoner.

Wonderful with the 9.5” barrel.

“Wonderful with the 9.5” barrel.”

And the scope mounts. I loaded to .41 special though. Shooting the mags just beat my fingers and wrist up too much.

Atta Company!

Also, (and you read it here first)...

Perhaps Ruger, Cabelas, et al might consider sponsoring their own outdoor show.

North/South Carolina? Virginia? Georgia?

I bet it could be bigger than the ESOS.

This represents a big $$$ commitment on their part, and on the part of all that have pulled out. By this time, as close to the show as we are, they are eating alot of money to pull out, without having the income from the show to offset the up-front costs.

It is very unlikely they will get the money back for their booth space, they have already spent money prepping the booth and exhibit materials, booking flights and hotels rooms etc., which may or may not be refundable depending on specific conditions, and their internal people have spent time preparing exhibits, producing print materials, and conducting various marketing efforts related to the show, some of which may be reusable, some not.

And as was mentioned, some vendors, maybe not specifically Ruger, but certainly the more local Mom and Pops, stand to lose significant revenues for the year by backing out of the show.

Check the list and support who you can in your area that pulled out, as well as the bigger companies like Ruger, et al that stood up to the exhibit company/promoters PC supplicating decision.

I have a bunch of Rugers including 10/22, Blackhawk, Mark II and, one of my favorites, a PC-9 that I got just before they went out of production.
