What else is new? Seems like they have tripled since I first started buying them. I guess they almost have, really. I remember buying new Blackhawks for around $200 and now they are around $400 or more for a new one.
Everything is going up. As long as the quality don't go down it is just a necessary evil.
10%? that hurts. But everyone else will probably follow suit if not already. Rugers are still one heck of a good buy/value.
