Rugar’s New Commemorative Pistol

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Wayne R. wrote to let me know about a rumor that Ruger is coming out with a new pistol in honor of members of the United States Senate and the House of Representatives.

It will be named the “Congressman.”

It doesn’t work and you can’t fire it.

    So stupid! I can’t help but smile!

    It doesn’t work and you can’t fire it. Great line and so true in our political world today.

    I know a way to fire a Congressman, it’s called the “ballot box” and I would hope we all consider this in November. Educate yourself and visit your polling place and vote your choice. For every 435 political districts, there is only one seat in Congress, supply yours with a competent leader willing to voice your feelings through leadership. If that doesn’t work, start over til we get it right.

  3. Chip Johnson Says:

    if Ruger would color it purple, it could be called, ‘bishop’…same paradigmno real work, and permanent tenure

  4. Amber Says:

    Well, maybe they’d work for a dollar a year like they asked certain CEOs to do? Give up the expense account, the per diem’s, the travel budget… after all, they thought that was a fitting “punishment” for profligate CEOs… they’ve done no better — wait — the CEOs got their act together and started making profits again… congressmen have done nothing useful and lots more that’s negative, the last 4 years.

    Is there an emoticon for sadly shaking one’s head?

  5. candace Says:

    Knew there was a reason I looked Ruger firearms; not only are they local, but they obviously have a great sense of humor!

  6. charles scamman Says:

    Guess I’ll stick with the Taurus Judge. Not as prestigious as the Congressman perhaps, but it’s decisions are final…

    Thanks for the smiles with this article….

    Ha ha ha ha……This is one to pass around!
