Hey Ruger ....................
« on: June 16, 2018, 05:15:01 PM »
Hey Ruger, please give my regards to genius who made you stamp "Read Instruction Manual" on the side of the barrel of your 357 LCRx.
Because of that moron you lost my business.
Hello S&W 686 (who was smart enough to engrave only "S&W .357 Magnum" on the side of their barrel).

Bwahhahahahaha! You can't have Ruger take away the warning roll marks. It's been a running joke for years that you could sit around the campfire in the evenings and read the owners manual from the sides of your Ruger. Camping would become so boring.

I do like my S&W 586 though without the warning label.

If they only took that off their guns...SMH they'd be so much better!!

What's stamped on it has no bearing on function. Seeing as my LCR lives in an IWB holster and when I shoot it I'm looking at the sight, I really don't care about RTM being on the gun.

I tend to agree that less is more in regards to "Billboarding"  >:( of guns......Dan Wesson does it right, about as minimal as you can get......they should be a model to the industry as a whole

 I think the warnings are pretty much the most interesting thing about Ruger pistols.  O0

It bleep well needs to be the standard.  Some of these gun makers are getting stupid.  (fires without a magazine inserted) Why did that need to be printed on the gun?

If I wanted a billboard, I would buy a billboard.

READ OWNERS MANUAL
and
GRIP ZONE

are both billboards found on firearms.
When people ignorant of guns make gun laws, you end up with ignorant gun laws.

So, I am stoked -
I just ordered an LCP II for $195.49, shipped!!!! After transfer and back ground check fees, I will have ~$213.00 in it.

Although I have never been a .380 fan, I think this will be a great pocket carry option. Plus, I only did it to see how much writing they could put on that tiny little gun ;D

If I ever get out of the hole I'm in I want a EC9s, and I probably won't care about the billboard. But I do have to say - it is not as tacky as what Century does to the poor milsurps they import. Their "electro-penned" engravings are destructive, ugly, misspelled, rusting and nasty, always in the most visible spot to ruin the aesthetics of a fine milsurp. Blecchh....
