    Joe B., Good luck with Sportsman'sWarehouse. The will notify you BUT ya gotta jump on it instantly, as within minutes of getting the email, or it's gone.

    Maybe there's a way you can set your email to sound an audible alarm for a S.W. email.

    No real hurry. I've got plenty of toys to play with while I wait.
    I've managed to grow a nice collection of toys.
    7 22's, 3 of them take 22MAGS, 25cal Colt Automatic vest pocket, 4 or 5 9mm's, a couple of 40's, a 38, 44mag, 10mm 1911, a 30 cal Universal Enforcer, and a few others plus some long guns. I don't think I'll get bored waiting.

    Joe are you spending your children’s inheritance or just investing it for them?

    GOOD NEWS:
    Today (April 15) I talked to Ruger customer service and the nice lady said Ruger was still producing RUGRE 57 pistols as fast as they could and still maintain high quality.

    She also said she and other Ruger employees could not purchase them with their discount until the retail orders had been satisfied. Nice to know Ruger cares about we retail customers.

    So since I'm signed up with my credit card with a large company I trust and with whom I've done business before I figure maybe late June will be about the time I see my 57.

    SO, you Ruger 57 buyers, are you also in the market for a RUGER PC carbine in 5.7 x 28?

    Congrats Joe! I'm olive green with envy.

    There were "misgivings" by a few Youtube reviewers that the RUGER 57 did not have a firing pin block safety as most other pistols do.

    Then one reviewer tested and TESTED (with a primered empty case) the 57 with drop tests, banging with a mallet tests and the pistol did NOT fire the primered empty case.

    So I'm now satisfied it as a safe design as-is.

    HOORAAY! Today I picked up my RUGER 57 at my gun shop. Bought it through Gun Broker from a place in Texas for $650. Not a bad price given the panic buying STILL going on.
    Yeah, it's a "niche gun" that only some want but as I said, it's a companion to my PS90.
    ZOMBIES BEWARE!

    I got a plastic holster and an extra mag from Ruger LONG before today and now I can actually use them. Going to the range tomorrow!

    I can't wait till RUGER produces the PC Carbine in 5.7 caliber and has an adaptor compatable with 5.7 Ruger Pistol Magazine . I went with the .22 Magnum Kel Tec CMR 30 & the PMR 30 because they of the same caliber and use the same magazines . .22 Magnum & 5.7 have similar ballistics . I think you will soon see a 5.7 PC Carbine from Ruger.

    BTW, I had problems finding a double mag pouch for the RUGER 57/FN Five seveN mags so I went to THE VEST GUY and ordered two double mag pouches, one in black and one in Cryw Multicam with QR plastic buckles so I have one go go with each of my anti-white supremacy outfits. ;o)
    I already have two double mag pouches for my 50 round PS90 mags from The Vest Guy and this guy does great work. Made in USA to your specs.

    SGW, I'll wait 'til the pouches come in mid-October so I can put all the gear in one post.
    I'll include a shot of the PS90 and its two double mag pouches as well.

    DAYMN! Zombies will just have to lurch away from this 5.7 duo.
    And if aliens make it through the StarGate they won't have a chance.
