Mr. Completely and KeeWee were fortunate enough to be able take a tour of the Ruger factory in Prescott, Arizona. Normally, they don’t allow factory tours. However they met Lori Petoske from Ruger at the Gun Bloggers Rendezvous and she arranged it for them.
If you are a Ruger fan, and I am, both their posts are well worth a read to get an idea of the high technology that goes into every Ruger semi-auto.
The only downside to these type of plant tours is that they don’t give samples!
