Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show Says No to Black Rifles

Ruger Firearms

Ruger Firearms

Southport, CT --( Ruger has decided not to attend the upcoming Eastern Sports Show.

We are very frustrated by Reed Exhibitions’ foolish decision to ban the display of modern sporting rifles.

We feel that, as one of America’s firearms manufacturers, we must withdraw from the show as a commitment to the 2nd Amendment rights of our customers.

Nonetheless, we are very disappointed not to be attending the Eastern Sports Show.

We were looking forward to attending the show for the first time this year and meeting and supporting the 200,000+ sportsmen and women that attend this great celebration of the outdoors.

We hope the show will be successful for the many outfitters and other vendors who depend on the show for their annual business.

    1. I am going to goto my gunshop and get a ruger today in support of their decision not to attend the eastern gun show.

    2. Thank you Ruger! I will also buy another one of your fine firearms and exercise my 2nd Amendment rights. The enemy is the enemy,no negotiations,no surrender.

    3. [...] The first vendor that I was aware of withdrawing was Cabelas. That vendor was quickly followed by Ruger, Smith & Wesson, the NRA, and others. The list continues to [...]

    4. Thank you Ruger. I will go out and buy a ruger 1911 as a way to say thank you. HAHA. I do plan on buying one when I can find one.

    5. Way to go Ruger, S&W, NRA,Cabelas and any others that will withdraw no second chances on this one. You (ESOS) can’t be selective and say a vendor can participate but only with part of your wares, shame on you ESOS

      Thanx Ruger, you did the right thing. You probably did more for the 2A, and your customers this way than spending $$ at a show that doesn’t want you. Way to go. We’re behind you.

    7. Great move on the part of Ruger, as they support our rights. I will continue to support Ruger, and I will continue to buy more Rugers, like my Mini-14, Single-Six, Mark I, Security Six, 10/22, and my Super Blackhawk.

      I’m proud to have several Ruger products in my safe and will certainly purchase more without question because of this decision. Well done Ruger and thank you for standing up for your customers! Maybe I need to go get that SR556 that I’ve been eyeing…….

    9. I have a Ruger .357 Blackhawk and a Ruger 10/22 rifle, and I am going to buy a Ruger LCR .38+P as soon as I can find one, in support of Ruger’s decision to pull out of the show.

      I’m proud of Ruger for making a stand. Very proud! I own many Ruger products, and am in the process of ordering a couple more for the family. You have my support.
