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.

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

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

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.

This is just the sort of behavior it takes to get me to consider my self imposed ban on Roger since the old man made a deal on the 10 round magazine limit with Sarah Brady. Too bad they didn’t do something before I filled that .380 niche.

Here’s hoping that this show is practically deserted excepting reporters and lunatic lawmakers like Representative Morrissey of Virginia. Perhaps there will be someone demonstrating how the sling swivel on an AR-15 functions as a bayonet lug.

Yup, I’ll just have to add to my Ruger inventory. Maybe an LCP.

Just bought myself a Ruger 10/22 carbine and mounted a Simmons 32mm scope on it. Beautiful gun. I can’t wait to get it outside to sight it in properly and punch a few holes at a distance.

Looks like Savage continues to plan to exhibit there, unless I missed some news or a comprehensive list. Sad.
