Ok, I finished reading my RENE that just arrived. The teaser is the offering of the "Eaglebeak" Rugermania Album(s) WITHOUT info on how to get them!

Ok Chad,, or James,,, post it up as I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to order this.
I'll be the first one to say I want "all 3" of them!

The Rugermania Album - one of the funniest yet highly informative pieces on Ruger collecting, full of amusing Ruger related cartoons, articles and interviews with Ruger "biggies". It is well worth considering to add to your research library. Ruger Collectors Association, The Ruger Collectors Journal, Volume 30, No. 4.
These albums do belong in any Ruger collector's library. Red Eagle News Exchange
"I really enjoyed something light for a change and informative too. Good work." Jim Hoobler, Ruger Collector.
"I giggled like a little kid. I think you did a tremendous job." Martin G. Strouse, Ruger Collector.
"A job well done. My compliments. Fine drawings and clear photographs." Vern Hardt, Ruger Collector.
"Your irreverent, whimsical publication, your epistle...... ah, there is where humor is to repose." J. C. Munnel, Ruger collector and author, gun historian and magazine writer.
And finally, "Many thanks for your Rugermania Album. It accounted for the first good laugh I have had in weeks." James M. Triggs . Also from Jim: Upon receiving Rugermania Album No. 2; "I received it this morning and I was delighted. It's even better than the first album." Also from Jim in regard to the hyperbolic interview with W. B. R., William Batterman Ruger, "I also got a big kick out of the W. B. R. interview. This is closer to the truth than the author realizes." And in his final communication with Eaglebeak before his passing, "Keep up the good work. Is there anything else I can do for you? Please do not hesitate. I love Rugermania." Former advertising director Sturm Ruger & Co., Ruger historian and W. B. R.'s friend.
