Ruger $1 Million pledge

I did a search and could not find this posted either.  Really cool of them, and surprising.  I can't believe they sell a million guns a year.

I have always wanted a nice little .22 rifle.  Maybe I should help the cause and buy a Ruger 10/22......

Sounds like a good cause to buy a new gun.  I have been looking for something to buy and nw I may have just found one.  I already own a few Rugers and would love to put a new one in the safe.

.22

I sold all my .22LR stuff back when I was in college.  Now I regret it.  I want to teach my son to shoot, but he's only 5 now, and all my stuff is too big for him to handle.  I'll be getting him a Ruger 10/22 real soon now before he reaches the age I want him to begin learning.  I'll need to break-in the rifle first before I begin teaching him to shoot it in a few couple more years lol

Sounds like you and I are in the same boat.  My son is also 5, and I too would like to get a nice little .22 Wink

The first guns I bought for

The first guns I bought for my kids and now my grandson were the little chipmunk single shots. They are really sized down and come with a peep sight to make it easier when first learning. That said I really like the direction Ruger has gone the last few years and commend them on all the new products they have come out with. I have bought 2 in the last couple of years. An SR556 and an lcp and so far both have been great. I could use a 10/22 now as well for a truck gun without breaking the bank.

I've really been eyeing up the new 1911 they just came out with but I'm waiting to see if they do a compact as well as I have no need for another full size 1911. I would like to see on on the CCO idea of a commander length slide with an officers frame.

If they pull it off, they need to thank their salesman of the year...Barack Hussein Obama.

No I think Obama already won that award a month or so before he even took office.

I know...and his staying power is remarkable.  How many other salesmen can keep up a 3 year streak?  He's done more to sell firearms and gold than probably any president in history.

I saw the campaign plugged in the NRA mag

I saw this mentioned in the last issue of American Rifleman.  My initial thought was - oh cool.  Then I thought - well they have to make that money somewehere - they are probably hiking the gun prices $2 each.....

 

If you really want to help teh NRA - there is no need to buy a Ruger, just take out an NRA membership, or upgrade the one you already have and cut out the middle man....

 

Just my 2 cents....

I would have to agree.

Still the 10-22 is a fine gun and i actually own 2, a carbine in wood and blue with open sites (for rabbits in the thick cover) and a full size rifle in SS and wood with a scope.  I read a few years ago that at that time Ruger had sold enough 10-22's to put 3 in every house in America?

I agree as well but since I

I agree as well but since I already am a life member and and always round up from the retailers that participate this merely helps to give me a reason to think about buying another gun.:D 

Ruger has always been a good value and reliable firearm for me. this is just another feel good reason to buy from them. Whatever thier reasons the money is still well spent.
