Ruger Delivers on “1.2 Million Gun Challenge to Benefit the NRA”
Southport, CT – Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. (NYSE: RGR) completed the fourth and final quarter of its “1.2 Million Gun Challenge to Benefit the NRA.” During the quarter ended March 31, 2012, Ruger sold 382,500 firearms. During this year-long challenge, Ruger donated a total of $1,254,000 to the NRA.
We believe that Ruger is the first firearms manufacturer to build and ship more than one million firearms in one year. Ruger CEO Mike Fifer commented on this historic accomplishment, “We achieved this milestone because of the strong support of our loyal consumers. Everyone who purchased a Ruger during the past year contributed to this achievement and should take pride in making history.”
Cassie Evins, the winner of Ruger’s “I Took The Challenge” contest, will represent all of our loyal customers when she joins Mike Fifer at the NRA Annual Meeting to present the final check as part of Ruger’s pledge to donate one dollar to the NRA for every gun sold during the year-long challenge.
