http://finance.yahoo.com/news/sturm-ruger-company-inc-reports-210500267.html ^

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.

The first ‘real’ gun (other than my .22 mouse gun) I bought was a Ruger P90. I still love to shoot it and it is still my backup CCW.

I have often thought of picking up a Ruger MK III .22 for plinking.

I was watching coverage of the standoff with that AQ nutjob in France the other day. Color me stunned to see a Ruger Mini-14 or possibly a Mini-30 in the hands of a French trooper! I wonder what their foreign sales figures are? I wonder how many of those countries are threats to us here? Remember something (well two things): #1 Money makes the world go round for businesses like this -- they'll sell to anybody and #2 Bill Ruger senior (founder) made a deal with the Clinton regime that if he supported the AWB back in 1994, the administration wouldn't define the Mini-14 as an assault weapon. I refused to buy a Ruger for a good many years after that. Now, I may go back and pick me up another 10/22 rifle. But that memory died hard and ugly.

Got my SR40 about a year back, fantastic gun!
An SR-556, a SR22Pistol and either a SR9C or SR40C are on my wishlist!

I recently bought the Ruger SR-556. Super high quality but the trigger is unimpressive for my liking. Awesome piece overall.

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

Mr. K, I have been looking for a long time for a semi-automatic .410 shotgun. I've patrolled the aisles of various gun shows but have never seen one, neither could I get any info from the dealers at these shows.

I'd like to get one for Mr. OldPossum. I figured it would be one helluva defensive home weapon.

Have you seen one?

It’s a good handgun. Get regular practice so you are as familiar with it as you are with your own name.
