Ruger Firearms Introduces "Inaugural Special"


Via this loon, firearm maker Ruger has announced an "Inaugural Special" on rifle magazines in advance of Barack Obama's inauguration:

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) announces an "Inaugural Special" for Mini-14® 20-round magazines that runs from Election Day to Inauguration Day.

From November 4, 2008 to January 20, 2009, fans of the Ruger® Mini-14 Target Rifles and Mini-14 Ranch Rifles, both chambered for .223 Remington, can purchase Ruger manufactured 20-round magazines (regularly priced at $39.95) for only $29.95. This special offer is only available through the Ruger On-line Store. Please note that these magazines are not available where state or local regulations limit magazine capacity to less than 20 rounds.

I've saved the window, as I doubt this will last very long. (Click on image to enlarge.)

Update: Well I was completely wrong about how long the ad would stay up. It's become an industry, apparently, to sell as many guns as possible with "Obama's gonna take all your guns!" scares. Whatever. Selling magazines for target rifles as "Inaugural Specials" seems more than a bit incendiary - but I guess that's just me.
