  • Suppressing that 10/22: Surprisingly effective and easy

    The Strum, Ruger Model 10/22 rifle is one of the most popular detachable magazine semi-automatic plinkers ever invented. It's been made in dozens of models and variants and is easily customizable to almost any task. One that it lends to very quickly is for those who like a little quiet time. Why suppress a rifle anyway? First off, forget Hollywood. If you watch enough action films, you have probably seen the movie hit man come in, zap a couple rounds off, and take out the mark quietly and...
  • Ruger Super Blackhawk Hunter Single Action

    Like the Red Superhawk, the Hunter series is designed for big game hunting. It comes with integral scope mounts and rings, with adjustable and front ramp sight to contend with elevation and wind. The trigger pull on the Hunter weighs in at around six pounds. This piece falls under the New Model Super Blackhawk within the Hunter series. The New Model Hunter Blackhawk is essentially modeled after the standard piece, but better suited for rifling. With the Ruger Hunters, you'll also get the...
  • Welcoming the New 9mm Ruger LCR and LCRx

    Amongst Ruger enthusiasts everywhere, it is no secret that the LCR line is a respected and popular choice of firearm.

What might that be, you ask? The answer is the blackened steel...
  1. Timeline of the fight to defend the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (Infographic)

    First framed by founding father James Madison back in 1789, the fundamental rights protected under the Second Amendment of the Constitution to keep and bear arms have been under attack for centuries and withstood the test of time with both wins and losses for those who defend gun rights. With the current administration's efforts to paint certain classes of firearms as being, "not family heritage or family tradition," while advocating a ban in the same breath, it appears that the war is still...
  2. Ruger kicks off summer with Collector's Series 10/22

    If you are looking for a short-run special edition Ruger 10/22, the company had you in mind when it debuted its Second Edition Collector's series plinker the week of Father's Day this month. You have to admit, that the 10/22 is one of the most iconic rifles ever made.

    This week Sturm, Ruger announced that their popular Redhawk line, which from its inception 35 years ago has defined large-bore wheelguns, has resumed production of the popular six shooter in .45 Long Colt-- and it accepts .45ACP as well.

  4. The often-overlooked P345 Ruger hardballer

    One of the pinnacles of Bill Ruger's firearm design legacy was his P-series pistols that came just a few months too late to win a huge military contract. One of the last of that series to hit the market was a rugged and beefy Commander-sized .45ACP single stack that just didn't get enough love. The P-series In 1985 Ruger debuted their P-85 pistol, an investment cast aluminum framed pistol with a carbon steel slide and stainless internals. Made in a traditional double-action/single-action...
  5. Ruger looks to collect $4 million to help NRA win in 2016-- $2 at a time

    Sturm, Ruger announced this week that they intend to carve a $2 bill (so to speak) out of every new gun sale of a Ruger firearm and combine pledge it to support the National Rifle Association. Bill Ruger was an patriot and you don't have to look any further than his Bicentennial series guns in 1976, and his move to bring back classic American military designs like the Colt Single Action Army (as the Blackhawk), M-1 Carbine/Garand/M-14 (as the Mini-14), and Remington New Army (as the Ruger...
  6. Ruger moves to keep semi-auto offerings on the California handgun roster

    This week Ruger announced a CA-legal (and 9mm convertible) LC380 that comes complete with a free laser in a bid to keep a semi-auto self-defense offering on the states ever-shrinking handgun roster. Why the roster California currently requires that under the Unsafe Handgun Act, all handguns sold in the state be approved to meet all current laws and added to a roster in order to sell. Once approved, the manufacturer has to pay $200 per model per year to remain on the list. However, if the...
  7. First time gun owners or looking to buy your first handgun.

    First thing to know about any kind of gun you buy is how to use it safely. Second thing is what kind of gun will best fit your needs that you can safely use. Safety is more safely learned by reading about it first than learning it by experience. The reason why is because learning by experience maybe too late for you or some others safety. When you buy your first gun there are at minimum two other things for you to buy or be sure you have. Besides the gun, you need have or buy hearing and...
  8. Ruger's Wheelgun that wasn't: The single shot .256 Hawkeye

    Want a giant handgun that shoots a supped up small caliber, super high-velocity round and has a funky loading process that you likely haven't seen before? Well you sound like a Ruger Hawkeye pistol man. (Tell me what you notice about the cylinder of this handgun...) What in the world is the .256? Introduced in 1960 after some wildcat development by Winchester (with some input from Bill Ruger's people), the .256 Winchester Magnum round took Elmer Keith's vaunted .357 S&W Magnum, which...
  9. Ruger's black powder hog leg: The Old Army

    Most firearms companies specialize in either black powder guns, or modern smokeless powder guns. A notable example of one that dallies in both ponds is Sturm, Ruger, who have long-produced a black powder version of their M77 bolt action rifle (the 77/50) as well as an excellent reboot of a Union Army service revolver from the Civil War period-- the Old Army. The author's 1998-vintage Ruger Old Army in .457BP with 7.75-inch barrel. The gun is a massive three-pounder that is almost 14-inches...
  10. The Baby Nambu and its importance to Ruger

    The company that we know and love today as Sturm, Ruger got its start in a way from a certain Kijiro Nambu, who, in a twist of fate, was a Lieutenant General in the Imperial Japanese Army. Would you like to know more? Who was Nambu? (Seems real fun at parties) Kijiro Nambu, born September 22, 1869 in Saga prefecture to a former samurai retainer of the Nabeshima clan, went off to the Imperial Army Academy at a young age. By 1897 Nambu was an Artillery Lieutenant assigned to the Tokyo...
  11. A factory Ruger Mini-14 in .300 Blackout? No foolin

    The good folks at Ruger have been in the Mini-14 biz for going some 40 years or so and in that time have cranked out millions of these rugged .223 carbines. As time has gone by, the company has trotted out offerings of these guns in 5.56x45 (there is a slight difference over .223), .222 (not a misprint) 7.62x39 (Mini-30) 6.8mm (Mini-6.8) and .308/.243 (XGI). Well now, the time has come to add a new caliber to that field: Why .300 BLK The 300 AAC Blackout round (7.62x35mm) was designed by a...
  12. The short-lived Ruger Gold Label SXS

    Just after the turn of the century, Sturm, Ruger made an effort to produce a light side-by-side 12-gauge shotgun that could compete with what was coming out of Belgium, Spain, and Japan. This double-barreled beauty, dubbed the Gold Label, was a brief but now beloved classic. Red Label predecessors Back in the 1970s, Bill Ruger introduced a honey of an American-made over and under (O/U) shotgun by drawing inspiration from Browning's Superimposed and Winchester Model 21 (which had moved to...
  13. A look at the Ruger LC9: Tomorrow's slimline 9 of four years ago

    Introduced in 2011 on the heels of the outrageously successful .380ACP caliber Ruger LCP (Lightweight Compact Pistol), the LC9 gave the masses of concealed carry devotees who loved the size of that pocket gun but not the caliber something more substantial to wrap their hands around. Why the LC9 Going back to the 1900s, the small Colt vest (hey guys wore them back then) and pocket sized semi-auto handguns were all snappy little blowback actions chambered in .25, .32, or .380 (all of which...
  14. Ruger reaches back in the vault for the new and improved .327 wheelgun

    America's favorite gun maker is reaching back into the creative closet and bringing forth a blast from the past that has some six-shooter aficionados rejoicing. Yes, we are talking about the return of the SP-101 in .327 Fed Mag. Why 327? Introduced through a partnership by Sturm, Ruger and Federal Cartridge in 2007, the .327 Federal Magnum uses the rimmed, straight-walled .32 H&R case with a very lightweight .312 caliber bullet (typically 100 grains) to generate a screamer of a round that...
