Fingers crossed Ruger Days starts this Friday and .22 SP101s are $499. I'll be there Friday after work if so. We'll know tomorrow when the flyer comes out.

Looking at the ad just released, those prices look pretty normal to me for the most part.

Normal for sale prices I mean. I expected maybe heavier discounting since its Ruger days and all.

The new add is out SP101 for $539, delivery in two weeks

I saw the ad too, and agree discounts look to be normal (that Gunsite Scout was the same price in their fall flyer that just expired). I was also expecting a little bit more discount wise. Also, what's up with no O/U's? Was hoping to get a deal on a Red Label. :mad:

I was waiting to see pricing on the 22/45, but at that price I'll buy used. I've passed up a few sub $250 deals in the marketplace waiting to see Ruger Days pricing.

Yes, at 539 on the new 22lr, I will let my dealer get from Buds for $489 and give him the $50 difference...I assumed $499 also; I think Turners is needing more profits since they buy direct. They will do WELL on $539....

SteveSatch

I'll pass on the .22 SP101 at that price. I'll either wait until supply meets demand and it sells for less at Turners or buy/order from somewhere that can order it for less now.

We do Ruger Days about twice a year. It's correct that these prices are generally similar if not the same as weekly sale prices.

The biggest difference during Ruger Days is that every Ruger is on sale, not just 10/22's, or LCR's or GP-100's or the other guns you see monthly in the weekly ads. We rarely would have enough Alaskan's, SASS Vaquero's, Mini-14 6.8mm, etc. to run on ad but those guns are on sale during Ruger Days.

And yes, we can't compete with out-of-state internet folks outside of CA. Nobody buys direct from Ruger except for distributors- there isn't a Ruger dealer program- not for us, not for them. Out-of-state warehouses like the one listed above just run on far less margins than most any shop doing business in CA. Any CA shop that tries to match them will find it hard to keep it up for the next five years, let alone try to stay in the gun business for 40+ years. And by gun business, we mean handguns, too, not just long guns like the 'Mart folks or the tennis shoe guys.

We appreciate the fact that finding a bargain is a great thing and we are not offended by your feedback regarding pricing. As always, we'll work on the things we can and keep supporting the CGN community with great specials and by supporting things dear to both of us like Project Appleseed, Sunshine Initiative, CRPA efforts, etc.

I won't be ordering from Bud's or doing an out of state transfer. I'll either wait until supply kicks in and Turners can sell it for less or see if another local gun store can sell it for less. I'm sure I'll have to wait for supply to catch up to demand and prices to lower.

They'll be allocated for the short-term but who knows... if we ever can have enough of them, maybe we could run them on a smokin' CGN special... :)

I'm not knocking Turner's at all. I love Turner's, and have bought most of my guns, equipment, and accessories there. I'm just on a strict budget for my 22/45 purchase and also not really in a hurry, so I can wait to find a price I like. For the record, I'll be buying either from Turner's or from a private party here in CA. I won't be buying from an out of state shop.

So Red Labels would be on sale as well, but just aren't listed?

No worries here. As we get more involved with CGN and as we get things on track, we want to make sure that our communication works both ways. We learn something every day from interacting with CGN and we'll do everything we can to earn and keep your business.

Red Labels aren't listed because we haven't stocked them for some time. They are a uniquely cool O/U but they move much slower for us than the Italian guns.

Ruger Days savings usually don't apply to special orders but we'll take care of a fellow CGN member.

PM on the way.

Close enough for me on the .22 revolver. Although the 2 week availability will let me slip putting down a deposit to the weekend.

This doesn't make any sense to me. 539.99+tax either way.
Am I missing something?

Boy that was easy.

Me: D@mn
Her: What?
Me: There's a new gun I want. I'm trying to figure out how to convince you to let me buy it.
Her: Just buy it for me as a gift. I can't refuse a gift. And then you'll get to shoot it whenever you want.

Yep, I've got the best Calguns wife. I feel bad for all you poor bastards who aren't married to her.

Now if Turner's could just get Kel-Tec to ship my KSG I'd never shop anywhere else.

Ruger sent these to our distributor last week. We had expected them to ship on Thursday, hoping for a Friday, or Monday at the latest, delivery.

Instead, they shipped them on Friday. We still expected them yesterday but they say we will have them today.... :mad:

Our distribution center folks will receive them immediately whenever they do land and get serial number info to stores to pass to waiting customers so that you can get DROS started ASAP.

That depends a bit on how they arrive- likely FedEx or UPS- should be by early afternoon.

We'll post here once numbers have been e-mailed to the stores.

At last ... they're here!

The stores will be receiving an e-mail so that can allocate serial numbers to customer orders. Based on computer processing :hammer:, that should happen this afternoon but no later than tomorrow prior to opening.

Do you know if enough were received to fulfill all orders or will some customers have to wait until the next batch? Also, I assume the allocation is based on when the pistol was sold?

We'll continue to order and re-order as needed. We'll keep you updated as we get shipments in stock.
