contender.......................
You are my mentor!! I couldn't agree more with your post. I have 4 in my stable and my dealer
has another waiting for me to pick up. You are spot on when you say.........affordable handgun for the working man.
I am more than pleased and proud to own "Ruger Wranglers".

Super fun gun that will last for generations,
Shorty

Kudo's on your evaluation too!

Contender is spot on, I carefully read all the QC threads and most of them are about minor finish problems, along with fit “problems” on guns that have never been fired such as canted barrels and gap “issues”, there’s even a QC thread about a Mark IV that functioned perfectly before it was modified and no longer does...my .22lr SP101 has a slightly canted barrel and the finish on it when new was just OK, that gun is an absolute tack driver and it’s been handled, shot, and cleaned so many times most of the original finish is unrecognizable, not to mention the trigger is smooth as silk with the stock springs that so many complain about.

Rural King, RK Guns, snows the silver Wrangler in stock for $189.99.

I just ordered one to pick up at the Rural King closest to me. Net price $214.38.

RK is charging shipping, but there will not be an FFL fee, that saves me $15. Since RK operates in my state, tax was unavoidable.

My local RK hasn't gotten a single one. Strangely, neither has Cabela's or Sportsman's Warehouse.

Confused, if the net price was $214.38, why did the ad say $189.99??

I think you confuse net, gross, advertised, and retail.

In my simple mind net is the price I pay, but maybe i should have used out the door.

In my work in the feed industry, we weigh trucks of ingredients, there is gross weight, tare weight and net weight. Gross - Tare = Net.

We get billed for the net weight.

Did the same growing up farming watermelons, weigh the truck empty (tare), load said truck with melons and weigh (gross), subtract tare from gross to get net weight, count out cash based upon agreed to price per pound.

Shipping yearling cattle in the fall, there was an agreed to price per pound and usually a "shrinkage" allowance, 2 to 3 per cent was common. So if you shipped a load of calves with a live weight of 40,000 pounds with a 3% shrink, you got paid for a net 38,800 pounds of beef delivered to the feedyard.

The "net" is the bottom line number that determines how much money changes hands.

Picked up my 5th one yesterday. Need one more black to have a pair of each. I usually don't go this crazy, but I remember
years ago when I was a young man. Then a Single Six (even 4 5/8ths) was $87.50 and I was making about $70 a week.
I'm not a rich man now, but at the price these are selling for, I decided I deserved a pair of each. My local GS says more are
coming and he will hold me a black one.

Please don't think I'm bragging, I'm just feeling lucky at this junction of life to be able to have something I used to only dream
about. I hope you all end up with as many Wrangler's as you want. They sure will put a smile on your face.

Stopped at my lgs yesterday, he had a silver Wrangler for $179.00 plus tax. Otd was 199.22. I put down 2 Benjamins and told him to keep the change.

I will need a two gun rig soon.

Those who expect to get a classic Single-Six for the price of a Wrangler are likely to be disappointed.

:roll: :wink: :roll:
