The new Ruger LCP looks an awful like a Kel-Tec. Did they work out a deal and merge or did Ruger just steal the design of the Kel-Tec?

Do a search. Seriously any new gun that comes from a major manufacturer is gonna have a ton of threads about it.

No merger. They did not steal the design because it's free for anyone to use.

No deal, no connection between the two companies.

The annual report I received from Ruger two days ago said nothing of acquisition of Kel-Tec, Kahr or anyone else. Most folks don't realize that, financially, Ruger is NOT a large corporation. Certainly, it's not miniscule, but it's hardly a twitch on the NYSE. "Recreational companies" like Harley-Davidson are much larger!

I'm sure some design elements were inspired by the KT, but that does not make them =. ;)
