    Anybody order from Ruger? I am wondering if it is really 4-6 weeks.

    BTW, got my EOTech, it took about a month.

    Who did you guys email? I emailed the Eastern US sales manager but have had no response. Marketing?



    Update: I tried Mike Kroll and he got back to me with a price list. You can find his contact info on the website.

    Anyone know if the discounts this year apply to the AR-7?


    Also, if you go to your local Dick's Sporting Goods, they have packets of discount coupons that you can give to your students (and there's one in there for you, too). I forget the amount, but ask for the Hunting packet (they have all different types depending on what you instruct/coach). Oh, and the real nice part is that they're pretty liberal with what they consider to be in instructor, too - for example, my RWVA Instructor's card was enough to get me the packet. And we're not NEARLY as well known as the NRA... yet.

    Dwarven, those Henry guns on the list are the only ones available with the instructor's discount. PM me your email address and I'll send you the price list.

    Thanks, Rich, but no need. I found the list on the Appleseed website (in the Instructor's section, which is not available to the general public), where I was informed that they recognize Appleseed Instructors for their discount program, too. I've sent them an email to see if the AR-7 can be gotten under the Instructor's program, too.

    I'd like to get one for a couple of reasons: one, it's light enough for someone who doesn't have the arm strength to use a 10/22 (I'm thinking of a 13 y. o. boy at our shoot in Leyden) and two, I want to see if I can figure out a way to put a sling on it without damaging that pencil-thin barrel.

    Price lists (including EOTech)

    Price lists including EOTech are now posted on my website @ [removed since heliohost.org has disappeared from the internet for several days]
    Check towards the end of the thread for the most current link as I shuffle around hosts.

    I had been meaning to organize them, but I am only now getting around to it. Hope it makes it easier for everyone.

    UGH...The web host (heliohost) had completely disappeared.

    ETA: It is backup but in the meantime I built it elsewhere. The SilverStripe CMS I was using was also hard to make mod's to.

    Now hosted at:
    http://reg7.site90.net - gone
    http://remat457.uphero.com - I don't have much luck with free webhosts do I? :(

    To clarify, click the link in "Shortcuts" called "NRA Instructor Discounts"
    and then click on the brand to expand it and show the clickable link.

    They are in alphabetical order, "previous entries" in this case means "more."

    They work but you have to click on the title to read the full article. The link is then clickable. I don't know why but the theme disables it in summary view.

    I would fix it but it is close to the end of the year and will wait until 2011 lists are out.

    Mossberg also has a discount. The paperwork specifies "IHEA Hunter Education instructor" But they can accept other instructors as well.

    Gonna have to reevaluate hosting next year. The host lost their mysql server and lost the database. Site is backup from an older version.

    It ask me to log in on the site to access information. I found no link for a registration if you were not registered

    No problem! Thanks for the positive feedback. I am planning updating it for 2011. I am going to wait until Feb to start pinging to see what will be available. If anyone gets new info for 2011 (or that they available) please let me know and I will update it.

    Is this directed to me? If so, what is the URL you trying to hit?

    This is in regard to the discount list. Just saying it would not let access the discounts.

    I can not speak about Ruger! My local FFL dealer submitted my order by mail to Kahr on 12/23/2010 and my MK9 was recieved on 1/05/2011 and they state 8-10 weeks for delivery. So my guess is that ruger may state a time frame they will not exceed.

    I can't tell what you are referring to. Are you on my site? Vendor? etc.
    A link would be helpful.

    EOTech heads up

    Just a heads up if you have been waiting to order on the EOTech program, 2010 pricing is still in effect through Jan. It is really good pricing!

    There will be a new one in Feb.

    The MA-compliant 2-tone PM9 with external safety/LCI was supposed to be listed, but I'm not sure if it was or not. Price was $450.

    Sorry Dick it's not on the list, only the regular two tone model and the regular black model. I would call Kahr and ask them if they can do a special deal for you.

    Another heads up. I bought something Nov 30th, 2010 and am still waiting for it to ship. Eotech said it would likely be in March.
    So yeah...if you can wait 4 months to get your discount it will be worth it.

    I know they will. I have a instructor price sheet with the model 9193 hand written in and signed by Frank Harris, the VP of sales & marketing. My post was for the others here [wink]
