I'm pretty sure Ruger doesn't use Shot Show to announce new products. They release their firearms throughout the year, whenever they're ready to hit the market. Ruger has been doing that for years.

I don't know who that feller is, but the first thing he does when he picks up a gun is put his finger on the trigger.



Edited to note that a little research indicates this is intended as a satirical take on "old school" gun show "experts" . . . as I guess the "Jackson Hole" hat and Polaroid camera should have been adequate evidence. And yet I bought into it whole hog. The abysmal trigger finger discipline just tripped my ingrained Rule 3 reaction for which I'll not apologize. I am embarrassed, though.

My thinking exactly. Discipline! Especially with a Thompson!

Update: get over to Lucky Gunner Lounge. That is the one and only Manny Mansfield. He is the greatest gun guru since the invention of gunpowder...if he grips a trigger, then we all must.

Agree. They have been pretty busy I think.

But in still did read a couple quick summaries on other stuff just the highlights. Hoping to see ruger mentioned anyway. 🙂

The pcc still tops my wish list.

Wood and steel still shoot; not many horses to whip these days.
I still whip this horse.
