Ruger Compact Rifle in 308

I first saw this little gem at the National Shot Show last January 2001.  A man held the Ruger Compactrifle in his hand holding a 454 Casull cartridge up to the action muttering about how that would be perfect for his dream project which had obviously been in his mind for a long time at that point.(Don’t ask me how he got live ammo into the show)  This is one of those guns that us Dealers will wind up killing if we don’t get behind it.  I got one of the first to hit the distributor with customers standing around as we emptied that mornings shipment.  They all jump at the compact that I had order specifically as a youth gun.  The words “that’s perfect for humping up a mountain” was the agreed upon phrase then the doubts came in, “it’s too short, the muzzle blast will kill you”, and “I’ll bet that will kick the hell out of you in .308” .   That type of immediate response to a product that had never been shot is what got us doing reviews in the first place.

RUGER P345 PISTOLS

We are going to go ahead and pass on this announcement now. You should know that all attempts to obtain a p345 for Review have gone unheard. Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc., (NYSE: RGR) the nations largest firearms manufacturer, is proud to announce the introduction of the Ruger P345, a trim new .45ACP pistol with many advanced features.

The Ruger P345 pistol features a slimmer-profile and stainless steel slide with a completely recontoured polymer grip. This new pistol has a 4.2-inch barrel, eight round magazine and fixed white-dot front and rear sights. The Ruger P345 pistol also features an unobtrusive internal lock, magazine disconnect, loaded chamber indicator, and all-new camblock design, which helps absorb recoil.

Ruger pistols are known for their reliability, performance and value, and the Ruger P345 continues this proud tradition, said Sturm, Ruger President, Stephen L. Sanetti. The P345 offers new engineering refinements and new ergonomic styling that pistol shooters of all skill levels will appreciate. When you pick one up, you instantly grasp its superb new handling qualities.

The smooth, short trigger pull of the Ruger P345 helps improve accuracy, while the ergonomically shaped polymer frame provides a comfortable grip. The slimmer contoured frame and slide of the P345 reduce overall weight, and the well-defined grip checkering improves handling and control.

Two Ruger P345 models are being introduced: the KP345PR and the KP345. The KP345PR features a Picatinny-style rail under the forward portion of the frame to mount popular pistol accessories. Both models will be available beginning in May 2004.

A Coleman Rechargeable Flashlight is Handy in Campouts

The Coleman rechargeable flashlights has been a most useful item in your camping site in the boondocks that have been the favorite destination of your family in summer and even at other times of the year when your kids suggest that you try camping out also in the colder months.

Your family has become an outdoor type family ever since the kids have grown up from their toddler years and have become very energetic boys in their pre-teen years.

Your four children (all boys) are very rowdy kids, but since they are all boys, you are not surprised at all. You yourself come from a family of five kids with only one girl, so you are used to the company of boys. Your sister then even threatened that she will wear pants when she grows up since all her experience as a kid were all experiences of the boys – she did not know then how it was to be a girl. Like your family now, you used to go on many camping trips as your dad then was a duck hunter, always using his Coleman flashlight when seeing a flock of ducks and swiftly shooting them down with his shotgun.

Your four boys now keep teasing Mom to act as a young girl so they can start practicing on how to court a girl. The four have begun eyeing the more attractive lookers among their classmates in school, saying that they have developed the strange feeling now that they want the girls now for company, rather than the boys whom they preferred as playmates when they were younger. Even in the recent campout you had last month the eldest boy borrowed the rechargeable flashlight you brought because he wanted to visit a girl he met that day in her family’s tent, just a few hundred meters away from your own tent.

It was a very dark night so you hesitated in giving the Coleman rechargeable flashlight to him, advising him to visit her the following morning instead. But the boy insisted to go that night saying the girl’s smile was so sweet when he first met her in the morning. “Dad”, he reminds you, “you have always told us to strike when the iron is hot before, remember?”

You have to get some help from Mom on this one. You did not realize that the lesson you gave them before on the hot iron and the need to strike it when still hot could apply to a situation like this one now of your son wanting to visit a girl in a hurry. Mom was as confused; she had to raise her arms up in surrender.

You had to give the led flashlight to the kid, hoping he will not bring back a daughter-in-law for you and Mom when he comes back. You regret having told the kids that “strike when the iron is hot” lesson before. Now you do not really know what your eldest made out of it when he left to see the girl.
