After watching a bunch of Sailing La Vagabonde on YouTube, my wife says she wants to live on a boat and sail around the world. She then asked what three guns I’d bring. Ooh, tough question (though it was nice to hear that I’m invited). The first thing that popped into my mind? Stainless. Stainless steel is significantly more rust-resistant, which is great for a field gun, truck gun, hunting gun, or boat gun.
Apparently Ruger customers agree, and have been asking the company for an all-stainless version of the American Rimfire. And Ruger listened. Their press release for the $359 rust resisting Ruger rimfire rifle follows . . .
