    STI used to give prize money to shooters who uses an STI pistol and wore an STI shirt to major matches. I won a couple frames that way. Ruger could certainly do something similar although I doubt they will.

    It's a no serious survey as a result.
    Ruger is not likely to launch an entirely new design off the results of this survey. They will likely do nothing other than add some different sights to a few existing guns.

    Like the old school exhibition shooters, they are a marketing tool. It will last as long as it is cost effective advertising.

    Team CZ seems to work as a reasonably cost effective marketing thing worldwide for CZ. Especially considering on almost all the teams the main team members are full time employees with day jobs at the company.


    FWIW outside of the US ( and yes there's lot of pistol shooting in the Unitd States) a much bigger percentage of shooters, especially pistol shooters, are involved in formal,shooting sports.

    Dear Ruger,

    Please make an affordable, reliable, wide body 1911.

    Thank you,
    The End

    PS: consider licensing the Caspian frame.

    I really appreciate a company trying to take real input from their customers.

    I went ahead and filled out the survey although I doubt they will even consider producing my two main suggestions (DAO Sig P365 clone and a Tanfoglio Witness clone with an aluminum frame option)

    I understand your point, and while I don't know jack #$% about the other guy, any company that would pay a fraud like nutnfancy, in an attempt to sell their gear, would cause me to seriously doubt the credibility of their products.

    I guarantee you and I aren't the true target audience.

    That strategy works with people who are too insecure or too stupid to figure out what is it that they want on their own.

    Personally, the more a shill pushes something the less I'm inclined to look at it. The marketing/advertising is typically compensating for a less than well thought-out product.

    YMMV

    Professional shooters are hardly “shills.” I imagine that a gun designed to Doug’s specifications would be superior to 99% of the guns designed by dumbdick consumers that can’t even break out of C-class.
    I shot the PX4 before it was cool.
