What’s going on with all the shakeups?

I see Ruger is building a professional shooting tram. I’m pretty excited about that as rugers are my favorite manufacturer. Just wondering if something is going on at Smith and Wesson as they are also a close favorite manufacturer I like. http://www.shootingwire.com/features...c-c33a3e79f37a

I meant professional shooting team. Anyway I see some former smith shooters going over to the new Ruger camp like Doug Koenig. I don’t know Doug but I’ve seen him shoot and he’s pretty awesome.

Maybe S&W is shrinking or disbanding the team like Sig did a couple years back.

"Some" former Smith shooters? Who else is moving to Ruger?

Found it. I don't know of McGinty, but Olhasso is sharp.

I believe Randi Rogers used to shoot for S&W.

Lots of drama among the top shooters. They tend to hurt themselves with their off range antics.

Koenig is going to Ruger too. Could it be they’re just paying more?

I've long since stopped paying attention, they go where the money is. The manufactures see it as underwriting but these guys could shoot Daisy's well.

As someone with an extremely low opinion of Rugers, seeing top shooters winning with their products could affect my opinion. I said "could." We'll see...

As long as you keep in mind that their equipment is HIGHLY tuned and not the same thing you'll be able to pick up. So, there's just another slight dose of skepticism to add to the "could."
