  1. One million firearms in 3 months is absolutely AMAZING! I wish them well if they can keep the quality up to their traditional standards.

  2. I have had an sr 1911 on order for 20 months now. Gun shops in my area don’t have them, I have only laid eyes on one at a St. Louis gun show, they wanted 850.00 for it. Ruger tells me they are making hundreds a day. There is a major distributor in my area, but they cannot get them. Where are they going ? Bass pro in st. L. does not have them.
