Kudos to Ruger

Time was when Ruger had a new product on the drawing board they would start advertising and getting gun magazine writers to review it. This would occur months before any consumer guns were even close to being ready to ship. This was done to get the public clamoring for the new model, and it frustrated buyers to the point Ruger lost much loyalty. It appears they had the Mark IV on the way to dealers before their ads came out, and that's great by me.

Same thing they did with the 10/22 Takedown.

The above technique sure killed the Springfield 1911-22, Centennial model which was supposed to come out in 2011 but none were available around here thru most of 2012 except for the one w/ the knife in the oak case for about $1000.

They didn't pan out, IMHO, and Im glad I didn't get stuck w/ one.
