    Colt has apparently decided to stop selling
    handguns (except SA revolvers) to civilians. This of
    course, is due to the ongoing politcial litigation. What
    effect will this have on RGR? Are the bad guys (liberals
    & lawyers)winning? Will this make more shooters
    re-think their anti-NRA positions?

    Here is a link
    for the Colt info.

    RGR should forget about the dividend, an

    That is the 5-shot .357 from RGR. Recently bought
    one for the Mother-in-law. It is built like a tank, &
    seems a bit heavy compared to other similar sized
    revolvers. In spite of the weight, it has a stout kick when
    shooting magnums. Much more pleasant to shoot with .38
    Specials. The gun was originally designed to shoot only
    .38s, but they realized the gun was strong enough for
    .357s. We keep the mother's loaded with .38 +p
    ammo.

    The SP101 is an excellent gun. But if you insist on
    shooting .357s, and don't intend to carry it daily, you
    might consider the GP100. The full size gun is easier
    to shoot accurately with the magnums.

    In spite of my concern with certain products (see earlier posts), I just bought 1000 more shares.

    GO RUGER GO!!!

  • In my earlier post, I mentioned other shooters
    posting to hunting/shooting boards questions about the
    Ruger Hornet. Below is a question posted Sunday the
    20th and several
    responses.

    ___
    question:
    I haved been reading some postings about the
    quality of Ruger firearms, such as the .22
    hornet.
    Would someone please give me some specific details on
    problems with the hornet, and
    some solutions. I have
    just placed an order for the heavy barrel Ruger
    hornet, hope I did not
    waste my
    money!

    ans:
    It seems that with a Ruger hornet either shoots or
    it doesn't, and if it doesn't there is
    apparently
    nothing short of installing a premium barrel that will
    fix it. This was the jist of an
    article in Varmint
    Hunter magazine about 2 years ago, and I havn't seen any
    one come up with
    a better solution since. I wanted
    a hornet at the time and took the advice of the
    article and
    bought a C.Z. 527. It shoots sub 1/2
    minute if I do. The Rugers that shoot will group that
    well,
    and the ones that don't shoot 2"-3" groups at 100
    yards

    next ans:
    I have one and it is the
    most inaccurate gun I have ever owned. The trigger is
    heavy. Clark
    Custom reworks them for big money. The
    only reason I don't sell it is that I don't feel it's
    right
    to sell something I know is a piece of #@%$.


    next ans:
    Had two...first one was so bad I thought
    it was an
    aberration so I bought another. It
    was'nt. Gave up
    and bought a CZ that shoots
    great.

    __

    I am curious about the readers of this board. Are
    you mostly interested in the stock price itself, or
    are there hunters/shooters/gun collectors here as
    well?

    As long as we are trying to think of ways to help
    our company, I'd like to toss out the idea of
    improved quality control in rifle production.First, let me
    state that IMHO Ruger revolvers are the absolute best
    in the industry. Their auto pistosl, while being
    somewhat bulky and to me, butt-ugly, are very reliable. I
    have not yet owned a Ruger shotgun, so I can't comment
    on them. But in the area of rifles, there is much to
    be desired. The .22 Hornet varmint rifles are almost
    a joke among riflemen. On hunting & shooting sites
    on the web, there are posts almost daily from
    shooters wondering how to make their new rilfe shoot
    accuately. Shooters reading this will know that the Hornet
    round is not known for its accuracy, but the Ruger
    rifle seems to make it worse. Many (I'd guess more than
    two thirds) owners report group sizes averaging 3
    inches or greater at 100 yds. It should be 1 1/2" or
    smaller. My Ruger Hornet shot 3"+ groups with every
    available brand of ammo and several different reloads, and
    left a fired case in the chamber every other shot,
    only to be removed by a cleaning rod. Yes, I wrote to
    Ruger, and they offered to fix my rifle. By the time I
    wrote to them, I was fed up, and ended up selling the
    gun to a gunsmith friend, who rebarreled and trued
    the action. These same problems have been written
    about in the shooting press. (VHM for one)As for the
    other Ruger rifles, they are wonderfully reliable, but
    not known for out-of-the-box accuracy like the other
    manufacturers. Ask any gunsmith, and he will tell you that
    Remington and recently Savage rifles (another butt-ugly
    gun) are more accurate to begin with, and can be made
    even more so by a good smith. You will not likely see
    a Ruger rifle winning any benchrest contests.Just
    my humble opinion, take it for what its worth.

    because I believe we will see several weeks, if
    not months of stagnation. I have owned shares since
    the spin-off, having previously owned T. This is one
    great company, and I will be back, but there are things
    happening elsewhere for now.

    Good luck to all, just
    don't run this baby up 'til I get back.

    Weren't you predicting a return to the 60's before the split? Hmm, that means it has doubled since then. Better take up a new hobby.

  • I was wondering if Mark Skousen has had anything good to say about this stock in his latest mailouts. When I first became aware of this stock, he was recommending it around 40/share, if I remember correctly.

  • I was wondering...

    Which thread readers/RGR stockholders also consider themselves gun collectors?

    Are you only interested in this stock because of the longterm potential? Or do you simply like Ruger firearms.

    If you own Ruger firearms, what are your likes/dislikes?

    If you live in a state that allows concealed carry, do you carry, and which firearm/caliber.

    Just hoping to get a little insight into posters on this thread.

    I didn't mention "Big Bertha" because I am not a golfer, and cannot comment on that aspect of RGR.

    Thanks for your responses

    ...cops were killed with their own firearms more often than the criminal attacking with weapon in hand.

    Better police training would take care of this, IMHO.

    Profit,

    I am long and interested in RGR, but for reasons not usually associated with owning equities. I simply like Ruger firearms, and own many. Bill Ruger will take his place in history along with Sam Colt and John Browning.

    I bought such a small position in the stock, that it really did not justify the commision. However, I have no intention of ever selling the shares.

    Happy hunting...

    The good folks on the 3 Com message board are hopping that Lucent will make a bid for their company. Any thoughts?

  • yahslehcar by yahslehcar Jan 16, 1998 2:16 PM Flag

    The only news you ever see posted by RGR on Yahoo is the quarterly reports. This company put 3 new firearms on the market this year, and two that I know of last year. I wonder why they never send out press releases.

    Ruger makes the most reliable & economical revolvers on the market. Their rifles, while not as accurate out of the box as others, still gets my vote as being the best. The semi-auto pistols are liked by many, but to me are the most butt-ugly autos around.

  • yahslehcar by yahslehcar Dec 9, 1997 10:59 AM Flag

    Can't say much for the stock price of late, but RGR makes the most dependable & affordable firearms on the market. They manufacture all 4 types, shotguns, rifles, pistols, and revolvers. I don't believe any other manufacturer covers all bases like this. With several new firearms available (all of which received good reviews from the shooting press) the revenues and stock prices should rise.
