    Well... In case you haven't noticed by the buzz going around, there were some very anticipated new product announcements from Ruger today. I decided to comb the websight, and see how many things I could find with a "new" tag. Some of the centerfire rifle announcements might not have been announced today, I don't follow those as closely as pistols, so if they are "old news" I apologize. Here goes. New today...

    Alaskan 480 Ruger
    SR1911 Commander Style

    Wow, what an underwhelming bunch of developments. What is an LC-380 and how will that differ from the LCP? I know I can imagine it--bigger, more rounds. So what? WHo needs it?
    If they really wanted to attract attention they need:

    LCR in .44spc
    LCP in 9x18mak

    Is the SR45 double stack? I cant look it up here at work.

    If it is I know what my next purchase will be.

    The MKiii line needs something new other than different grips.

    .480 Ruger!!

    Love the commitment to .480. Will be looking to pick up an Alaskan in this chambering. Dunno why they went with DA Redhawk compared to a Super Blackhawk offering, but I am glad there is some commitment to the cartridge. Great round.

    42 New products if you count new chamberings, the GSR now in stainless, etc. http://www.ruger.com/search/group/?cat=new

    It's an LC-9 in .380 ACP. It's a medium sized, locked breech, .380; so it should be very soft recoiling. It would be great for those who are recoil sensitive, have arthritis, carpal tunnel, or related conditions. It's a niche gun, but it has a place.

    I like the looks of the Gunsite Scout Rifle. Wonder how long it will be before the new stuff is in a LGS?

    Hmmmm...LCR in .22 mag? Okay, I'm interested.

    That's a good list, and number one on that list would have me writing a check so fast the pen would scorch the paper while filling in the amount. An LCR in .44spec is an idea who's time came the moment the first LCR hit the shelves.

    I'd like to point out, that I believe the 10+1 capacity of the SR45 has more to do with the grip, than any potential legislation.

    It seems they're making it a pretty big deal that the grip circumference is no different than the SR9.

    I like the extra 1.5" barrel on the GSR

    I like the looks of those Guide Guns. Be interesting to see what the street price is.

    saw their web site earlier and noted a few of the newer items, liking the 18" scout rifle. Hmmm one in .223 would be nice.

    I think they wanted to maintain the same grip width as the SR9 and 40... So I guess it's KINDA double stack. Could be wrong, though.
