Ruger Firearms is heading to the 2011 NRA Annual Meetings in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania April 29 - May 1. If you're heading to the show, make the Ruger Booth, number 1337, your first stop! The Ruger SR1911™ pistol and other must-see new products will make their public debut at the show, plus Ruger is featuring special events that you won't want to miss:
First & 25 Millionth Ruger Firearms On Display
Ruger will proudly be displaying the very first Ruger firearm and the recently produced 25 millionth Ruger firearm. The original Ruger Standard Pistol that founded Sturm, Ruger & Co. will sit next to the 25 millionth Ruger firearm - an SR9c™ compact pistol that has been embellished and engraved to commemorate this remarkable achievement. The dramatic differences between these two firearms serve as an illustration of the growth and development of Sturm, Ruger & Co. over the course of its 62-year history. This is a rare opportunity to see the original prototype pistol that William B. Ruger and Alexander Sturm used to launch Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. back in 1949. Don't forget your camera!
Tactical Tips with Dave Spaulding
Veteran Law Enforcement Officer and winner of the 2010 Trainer of the Year Award by Law Officer Magazine Dave Spaulding will be in the Ruger booth performing tactical demonstrations. Dave has worked in all facets of law enforcement and was a founding member of his agency's SWAT Team, and he's ready to share the tactical training knowledge he has learned throughout the years with you! Using products like the LC9™ pistol and the Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle, Dave will help you learn how to properly carry a concealed firearm or use a tactical carbine to defend your home.
Ruger will also be selling DVDs of the popular online video series, "Ruger Tactical Tips with Dave Spaulding." Don't leave the show without a signed copy!
