Liar, Liar Pants On Fire

A while back, I complained somewhat loudly about the breathlessness with which Ruger hyped it's latest pocket pistol offering (the LC9) when I was hoping that all the teasing was a lead in to announcing a 1911 style pistol in the one hundredth year since JMB's ascension into gunnie immortality.

Say Uncle has a link to an article on The Firearm Blog with what is purported to be leaked photos of an impending release by Ruger of a 1911 style pistol.

It looks real pretty.

But Ruger lied to me when they said "I am not aware of any plans at this time for any new products / calibers." The have broken the ninth commandment and bore false witness to one of their loyal and faithful customers. I must go to their headquarters and preach to them about Hellfire and lepers. 

Right after I find out how much they plan to charge for one, and where I can put a deposit down.


  1. ...Ruger and people who talk at the theater...

  2. North, YES! I should have thought of that first.

  3. Yea they probably secretly follow on your blog...LOL and knew you jus couldn't keep a secret...

    Just saying

  4. Mr. Daddy, I'm pretty sure I can keep a secret a whole lot better than the nice folks at Shooting Times magazine or the dork at Ruger who took the pistol to a range where someone with a camera and a notepad could get a look at it.

    Having worked in manufacturing and retail environments; I have to defend Ruger somewhat.

    It is not uncommon for one side of the company not to know what the other side is working on.

    And in some companies that is by design, tho in most it is just a by-product of poor information flow.

    The customer side of the business usually seems to make promises long before the R&D side is ready to deliver.

  6. Bob S., I work for a 40,000 plus employee publically traded company with multiple divisions. Trust me. I know about right hand/left hand communication issues. The management seagulls euphemistically call it "siloing". It still sucks.
