|0956 - Another purchase in honor of the president-elect|
I was in Gander Mountain buying ammunition for my Glock and happened to look at the Ruger LCP. It's little, and lightweight, but packs a bit more punch than the other pistols in its size that shoot .32, since it's .380 ACP.
I thought about it, and then went back and bought one. Haven't shot it yet, but that will happen very soon.
I don't think about buying guns under Republican administrations, because I know they understand the Second Amendment and that it's not about hunting. I've purchased 6 new guns during or immediately prior to anti-gun Democrat administrations. I'm not the only one. Gun dealers are having trouble keeping anything in stock, and ammunition dealers on the web have so much demand that they're citing 3-week lead times for shipment.
People keep telling me Obama doesn't want to take my guns, and he's got better things to do. I wish I could believe them.
current mood: calm
Nifty little gun. I have a Colt Mustang .380 Pocket Lite (long name, sigh) that I really like. Very accurate for the size. And, oddly enough it fits both my hands and Nancy's hands. I'll have to check out the Ruger some time.
As far as Obama trying to take my guns, I think there will be enough unified support in opposition that it will be difficult. I hope.
Looks very nice on the website, modulo the safety recall notice about the hammer.
I've seen a couple of reports now that the hammer fix is needed for safety purposes, but nobody's reported an accidental discharge because of it.
I did ask about the recall before buying, and the store had sent all of their stock in and had the recall done. Mine has the identifying stamp in the proper place to show that it's been completed.
The reason I am a Ruger (RGR) stockholder is because of their policies of taking care of such potential safety issues. Some of my politics may irritate you, but I'm serious about wanting to reward organizations that do the right thing.
I think I need to pick up another long-range hole-puncher myself. I really like my Neos U22, but it's not easy to hide and has little stopping power.
