I have had two run ins with Ruger customer service in non-warranty non-defective situations. Both times I spoke to an individual who did not have much firearms knowledge. They were polite and helpful, but were not knowledgeable about the firearms I called about. They were able to get the info and call me back after several days with reasonable answers.
I have dealt with other firearms companies where the CSR has extensive product knowledge.
$0 of an NRA membership goes to legislative action or court battles. Not a dime. Only money contributed to the NRA-ILA or NRA-PVF.
Of course, you could just donate to the Second Amendment Foundation
I was feeling pretty good, then I looked around and realized I am not swimming or on fire.
