A new year means new merchandise created exclusively for Friends of NRA and available only through Friends of NRA events.
We'll be taking a closer look at some of the exciting items soon available through your local Friends of NRA event in a four-part series: gun, knife, painting, and additional items.
First up is the 2009 Gun of the Year, or rather guns of the year, a matched set of Ruger Vaqueros.
Since its introduction in 1993, the Ruger Vaquero has been a leader in the sport of cowboy action shooting. Over the past sixteen years, Sturm, Ruger & Company has referred to it as “the gun that won the new west.”
Each revolver in this custom set is made in America and characterized by 5 ½" blued barrels with gold roll marks, a color case finish on the frames, and Hogue® simulated ivory grips. The gold roll mark on the right side of each barrel reads “NRA ‘2009 Gun of the Year’ Matched Set.” NRA custom serialization of each set reads as: NRAR-0001 and NRAL-0001 sequentially through 1,125.
Every exclusive set includes a custom Sturm, Ruger, & Company commemorative red double revolver hard plastic case, which is exclusive to Friends of NRA events. Lastly, an NRA/Sturm, Ruger, & Company certificate of authenticity is included for the final word. This is only available as a matched set; individual guns aren’t being sold.
