SHOT Show Spotlight: Ruger SR45 Video

I mentioned yesterday that there would be video. One of the videos I shot was at the Ruger booth with Ken Jorgensen and the new SR45. Apologies in advance for the lousy audio; it appears I'll be looking for a better microphone before the NRA convention (I know, I know, imagine that, Jay's having audio problems).



I think Ruger played this very well. They get a brand new gun to reveal at SHOT, and it won't be affected by any potential ban coming down the pike. 10 round magazine, so it's a fuzzy bunny gun everywhere but NY; it's a .45 so it fulfills the big bore requirement, and it's a Ruger, so you know it's overbuilt to beat the band.

And yes, I want one so bad I can taste it...

That is all.

Do you think an SR45c, with compact 7-round magazines, might be in the works?

Personally, as an Arizona resident, I think it's about time for me to make another contribution to the local economy....

They were non-committal about the compact version, but the consensus was that it would happen. Given Ruger's recent track record, I wouldn't be surprised at all to see one by the NRA convention...

With an assault weapon ban on everybody's lips, I'd be focusing on handguns if I was a gun manufacturer. Ruger's already shown they can turn out a derivative model pretty quickly with the LC380. I don't see why they can't wave their magic draftsmen over an SR40c and make it a .45. (Changing the design is probably pretty straightforward; making sure it meets Ruger's safety and quality standards will take most of the time.)
