So anyhow, I have a super interesting night tonight...Marshal and I are teaching self-defense concepts to a class of the top women advertising executives in NYC. Neat, huh? They're all actually going to get the opportunity to show a Ruger 10/22 under the tutelage of the excellent instructors of Manhattan's Westside Rifle & Pistol Club. I'll let you know how it rolls...
Yesterday we went over to CT to visit with Charter Arms, makers of one of my favorite snubs, the .44 Bulldog. Charter is cool because it is totally Old Skool, a Gun Valley company making guns like they've been making guns for a century. One of the most impressive things about Charter was their "rework" cabinet...it was almost empty. The "new" Charter Arms is doing an outstanding job of delivery quality revolvers right out of the box.
I was surprised to learn that the colored revolvers have become Charter's best-sellers. Like everyone I've talked to over the last few weeks, snubs are just flying out the door.
I think we'll be going back to film at the factory, then compare it to a CNC-based production facility like Masterpiece...be a cool way to show people the different ways of producing guns!
