If you need Steel (Il thing) and Mag (versatile, etc.) then you picked the right one with a RR that will be in your hand very soon.More buyer's remorse...I had hoped that my steel Rough Rider would ship yesterday...but G4G is closed on Mondays. At 192.00 or so delivered I am hanging my hat on the dual caliber and the 6" barrel. Plus not sure if the Wrangler would ship to ILLinois anyway. If the reviews are good, maybe there's one in my future when I relocate to a free state.
Micro: A new-release low-margin price-point product usually is a long-term play for market share rather than EPS.Might be a good time to buy Ruger stock...
As I get older, "long term plays" are not as much of an option. Being in equities is no place for someone in advancing years especially if they think they may have to draw on their funds. Unfortunately the stagnant economy and quantitative easing over ten years left seniors with few options when CD rates were below 1%. Personally I am waiting for the China trade deal to come to fruition and will divest a large percentage of my (small) holdings. Our investment club did well with Sturm Ruger over a few years and then sold it off about 14-16 months ago. (on a brighter note...Microsoft is on a tear today pre-market)Micro: A new-release low-margin price-point product usually is a long-term play for market share rather than EPS.
Macro: The entire industry has been in the outhouse for 2 years; postponed demand and 'Columbine talk' will generate sales volume for the group.
My "Mad Money" call = BUY to hold, not trade.
2-cents gratefully refunded upon request.
Accuracy was tested at a distance of twenty-five yards, with the Wrangler secured into my Ransom Master Series machine rest. Accuracy was superb! I had expected decent accuracy, but was surprised at the level of accuracy exhibited by the Ruger Wrangler, especially for a single-action revolver that sells at this low price. Shown are pictures of the smallest and largest groups fired. These five-shot groups measured between one-half inch and one and one-eighth inches at twenty-five yards. Amazing!
