I was emailing Ruger all the time trying to get their SR9c in raspberry. Always got a canned response that they were forwarding it to their marketing department. That's not marketing's job, it's engineering.
My buddy just picked up his new Ruger American 243 yesterday, it is the first short action up here so far, plenty of 270's and 30-06's but this is the first short action to arrive in this part of the country. He ordered it 4 months ago, it came in wed. he picked it up yesterday. It is a really nice looking gun, he paid $335, you cant go wrong with that. I have seen the 30-06's and 270's shoot, very impressive! Was going to go out to the range today but it is thunder storming here, what luck he has, waited 4 months and still cant shoot it. He bought it at Lolo's Sporting Goods in Lewiston Id., they told him it was the first in the northwest, and they only got one, and he bought it. Also said if you want one in the 308 or the 243, they didnt know when they would get any in those cartidges, Right now if you order a 243 there you will be #6 on the list at that shop.
I e-mailed the CEO about a month ago an told him I wanted one in L.H.. .No reply which probably equals dont hold your breath . What the heck it dont hurt to ask !
Well cheer up. Rumor has it that along with more calibers they will be introducing a left hand version. Not sure when all this is supposed to happen though. I read this a while back in one of the magazines.
Hope so, since I'm a left handed shooter also, although I did go ahead and get one in .308. Adapt and overcome. And I'd love it in a .22-250.
Best way to learn right handed shooting for a lefty is to get a flintlock right-hander rifle. Black powder igniting on the left cheek is a wonderful motivator.
Not a badly priced rifle at all, considering that its supposed to have legs out to 700. I'd love to see a range report when a G&G member gets one.
It won't be me. I got a Izzy HB FAL, and I'm still experiencing aftershocks from the earhquake that hit when I was unsuccessful in sneaking the purchase past the wifey. I hope to YHWH that she doesn't discover the 1891 Argie that arrived yesterday, or my tuchas are toast.
