Good portion of New Mexico got hit with Heavy Rains. Lightning storm prior to Friday's storm, had the making of War of the Worlds, massive lightning storm on the Eastern side of the Sandia Mountains.

Cost of storm damage could range from one to two million dollars

We have a member who works there. Hope he's alright, no injuries reported, but I imagine some folks are gonna have a little downtime, unavoidable vacation.

Hope all are okay. Hope all are not out of work too long.

It is the factory where they build the semi autos, and I have my eye on a
sr1911!

Well, I have time. My daughter is getting married in Sept. I need to get my wife a new car. I need to stop the funds leak before I buy another toy.

Guess we should help support the effort by buying up everything Ruger you see at your LGS!

Picked up a 357 LCR yesterday.

sad that we don't know who that member is, because i'm sure with so many of us here using their products, we could all donate a $1 to their employee relief fund. It's better then giving it to a political party....
