CalGuns is reporting that Ruger is about to abandon the California market for semi-autos thanks to that state’s insane gun control laws. (Gun laws that people like Dick Metcalf would screech as “reasonable”).
(CalGuns) – Ruger is going to stop selling semiautomatic pistols in California:
In perhaps one of the more shocking discoveries at the 2014 SHOT Show, Ruger spokesperson Kevin Reid revealed that Ruger was going to let it’s entire California Semiautomatic pistol roster “…drop off…” the CA Department of Justice Approved Handgun List.
It seems that in Ruger’s slavish dedication to the concept of “continuous improvement”, and that California is milking some $ 500 per pistol per year to stay on the list AND that microstamping is now the rule, Ruger has already let some 60+ semiautomatic pistols drop off the approved handgun roster with the rest shortly to follow.
Our non-Dick Metcalf view is that all handgun manufacturers and sellers should immediately cease selling and servicing any firearms used by law enforcement in California.
