This is way better than the selling out and throwing under the bus like AWB I. I guess it is a new company.

Maybe in your neck of the woods.

I've hand written letters to Chuck Grassley, Ross Paustian, Chet Culver, and a few others that most probably won't know if not an Iowa resident. I'm not talking a generic post card from my American Rifleman magazine that they print for you and sign your name, either. Most have written me back stating specifics to my concerns verifying they actually read my letters. As a matter of fact, I think I still have one of Grassley's letters that he hand wrote and signed the whole thing.

Thanks for posting that, dstryr. I received that in my email today and will be doing my thing later.

I got the same thing. Turned out it didn't like the way I entered my street address, it didn't like abbreviations. Try again, making sure your street address is exactly the way the post offal has it.

I just filled it out. I like the fact that it actually selects your state's representatives for you.

Thanks

Wow, my already considerable respect for Ruger just went up immensely. The next time I'm in the market for a new gun, I'll be taking a long, hard look at Ruger's product line.

Done, shared the link on FB and "Liked" Ruger on FB as well!

Don't forget those NRA-ILA donations also:

BTW the list of politicians my letters go to gives me the heeby-jeebys.

Sent one... even though I have sent several already... I think Ruger might have got the point that they cant lay down, or they lose a lot of customers.

I usually don't participate in anything requiring my personal information. This was important enough for me to do so. Thanks for alerting us of this.
