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.

I liked mine better when the scope was removed.

I still don’t understand the non refundable part of the event agreement. If the promoter changes the rules where you can’t bring a percentage of your legal product how is it still a valid contract?

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.

I haven't seen the specific show contract with exhibitors, so I don't know what remedies the exhibitors may have in this case. Typically, the contracts for booth space are non-refundable and paid totally up front. As you mention, there may be breech of contract issues that could come into play, but it hardly ever helps save money when you have to get lawyers involved.

Been looking at the LC9 and the Kahr PM9 for a smaller carry. The Kahr’s a bit pricey but I don’t want to sacrifice quality for price. Any thoughts after shooting the LC9 for a while?

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.

True enough, but it's not like sales are down right now.

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

I hear what you’re saying. That’s why I said an LCP, as that’s the only thing I’ve still seen available in the local gun shop. But with my luck, even that will be gone tomorrow (there were two there yesterday).

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.

Glad I bought Ruger stock. It has gone up $10.00 a share since I purchased it in December. Guess I should get one of their guns now.

The LC9 is truly an Outstanding 9mm. I have put a lot of rounds through this 9mm using Independence for target practice and Remington Golden Saber for self Defense. I have not had any problems with the Ruger or any of the ammo.

For what it is worth, I highly recommend the Ruger LC9 using a “Recluse” the perfect pocket holster. Check them out at:
