In America, Ruger Flag Owns You!


My Google-Fu fails me. Which came first: Ruger’s logo or Pontiac’s Screaming Chicken? As TTAG’s TTAC refugees know, Pontiac has gone to the multi-billion dollar union-bolstering bailout boneyard in the sky, taking its poultry hood tat with it. While it’s wonderful to see the mythic жар-пти́ца return to the automotive world, I’m not sure I’d pay $21.98 to look like a dime store diplomat—assuming that you’d get one Ruger flag for each side of your front fender. Freebird! Although you gotta give Ruger props for including a 17.5″ stiff pole.

    I feel like I get an email every day from Ruger trying to sell me this stuff. I want guns, Ruger, not branding irons and little flags.

    The Ruger War eagle is about 20 years older than the Pontiac Fire Chicken BTW. Ruger’s appeared in ’51, the Fire Chicken in ’70. I miss my F-body :'( One day….one day…. But back to the Ruger flag…..I am constantly amazed at what marketing departments will convince corporations to slap their logo’s on.

    I want to fly this flag over my house and salute it!

    I don’t mind a bit. Great company!
