Ruger Rimfire Challenge

Michael Bane is going to the Ruger Rimfire Challange, and says:

 You guys are going to be kicking yourselves in your sorry butts for NOT signing up for this match…there are, like, 30 count ’em — guns on the prize table, plus a whole crate of other cool stuff! NOOOOOOOOO, I can’t win anything, except the ever-lasting love of match direction Lisa “Boom-Boom” Farrell, plus a complete collection of Lisa Farrell trading cards…I don’t even get a freakin’ t-shirt, otherwise! Still…

Sounds like a lot of fun, except for the fact that the State of California considers my Ruger 10/22 to be a menace to society…

… and would quickly arrest me and throw me in prison upon arrival.  Ruger should hold the Rimfire Challenge somewhere other than California.   Why would I want my shooting dollars to go to a state that believes I ought to be in prison?

    Personally, I consider the State of California to be a menace to logic, free society, and western civilization in general.

    Well, it’s Ruger, so what do you expect. After all, Ruger refuses to sell 20 round Mini 14 mags to normal American citizens. ( Note, I don’t say “civilians”, as cops ain’t the military either, damnit.) However, Ruger will sell those same mags to distributors who then double the price when they sell them to us. Ruger makes nice guns, but I won’t buy another till they wise up.

    Actually, I’m pretty sure the ban on eeevil features such as folding stocks only applies to centerfire rifles. You’d have to ditch the high-cap mag, though.

  4. Sebastian says:

    No, it applies to everything. There is no distinction in the federal ban between rimfire and center fire.

    OOPS:

    Of course, you’re right, because you’re talking about the California ban, and I didn’t bother to reread my post to see that I was too.
