Actually, if you take the special one-time dividend last Dec into account, we touched the new high of $59.74 set yesterday, again today. Yahoo doesn't reflect the special $4.50 dividend paid last Dec, so high before this week was not really $60.11 but $58.50 on March 5th. Can't seem to break thru $59.74 though.....but only a matter of time.
The first gun I ever purchased with my own money as a teen was a Ruger 10/22 when they first came out back in the mid 60s....have bought many more Ruger rifles, shotguns and handguns since. Over 20 in all.. Never sold a one. Times have changed greatly since then, but one thing that hasn't changed is that RUGER still makes a fine product and I believe they take pride in every gun they sell. It is one of the companies that makes "Made in America" worth something.
