Ruger's ugly embossed barrel warning WHY?
Has there been a discussion here on the ugly warning that Ruger puts on it's pistol barrels? I mean really, "Before using...", once you've used the gun once, it's no longer "before using" and having a beautiful barrel cluttered forever with enough verbiage even a lawyer would be happy is, well, stupid. It actually makes me tend toward a different manufacturer for my gun.
I'm not aware of anyone else who does this. Why can't they hang a tag on the gun that you can take off. The warnings are all in the instruction manual...
Does this bother anyone besides me?
