Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is pleased to announce that the Ruger Gold Label side-by-side shotgun was named by Gray's Sporting Journal as "Gray's Best" top choice for 2006's "best shooting" firearm.
Quoting Gray's, "What does best really mean? We think it's a product that tries a little harder, does something a little better, is a little more elegant - is somehow more satisfying than similar products." Gray's editors review hundreds of products, "and each year a few stand out in one way or another." Their evaluation of the Ruger Gold Label shotgun: "A shotgun that you mount and swing - and that makes you just sigh."
They continued, "For the first time in 50 years, there's an American-made production side-by-side that is stylish, affordable, and handles as a fine shotgun should...At $2,000 you cannot beat it."
