Said we'd never do it-RATS BADGES?##Price increase##
« on: February 24, 2007, 05:42:41 pm »
When Annie Lee & I started this Rugers RATS thing, we parleyed & pondered long about RATS badges.  
We decided it would be a royal pain.  So we said RATS membership is for life & FREE.  No charge---No Badges.

But after the RATS Outfit caught on---I had a couple made up (one for her & one for me) as Christmas presents.  Sadly Annie passed away just before the two badges were done.

I am ponderin' gettin' RATS badges made again.

Please let me know who would be interested in a badge.  The charge would be $95.00 as long as the builder will still do 'em.  The logo (enameled Ruger Eagle) is done here at the shop.  Ruger gave me permission over the phone to do it.

So RATS Pards who are interested----contact me here on the forum.  If we have enough interest---It'll probably happen.

Here's what they'd look like.  
"RATS POSSE" or "DIRTY RATS" on top line.  
"YOUR ALIAS" on bottom line.
"YOUR RATS No" on bottom point.

I want one too.

would it possible for em to say "diry rat"? ;D

if you do make these available, will the red ruger pin be included with the badge ready to assemble or would each person have to provide their own ruger pin?

I have a bunch of the RUGER EAGLE enameled centers on hand (maybe 10 or 15). 
If we do this, I'd just include them in the first batch of badges (until they run out).  So they would be free to the first wave of RATS badge owners.

As far as the DIRTY RATS engravin', I'll have to check. 
I don't know if they would hit me for an extry engravin' charge or not.  ???     ???     ???

I will just leave this post open & see what kinda response we get.
Then if we get a lotta requests, I'll give out my address to send checks to.
Delivery time was 8 weeks one the first order.

NOTICE!   Dated August 2016.
THE PRICE HAS INCREASED
(AND I'M STILL LOSING MONEY ON MAKING THESE) TO $95.00.

Email me for a pre-made order form.  
I reckon I have the details figgered out now.

Email address:
mustanggregg@neb.rr.com

Or better yet:  
Here (below) is an order form to print off & mail!


There is a problem communicating with the CAS City server computer.  
I can modify the address, but cannot modify the price.  Anyhoo, the price is now $95.00 each including the shipping.

I have made a correction:
Please make the checks to just "GREGG CLEMENT".
Not "MUSTANG GREGG CLEMENT".

My mistake.

Dr. Cletus Pineboxx:

There have been several ordered so far.  I expect the first shipment to get to me by early May. I got home from Tucson & Tombstone the other day & I have several more letters with orders to process.

If ye want one, there is an order blank on the 1st post.  Please use it.  I can't do it by email or phone.

I just found out that the badge manufacturers' price went up in January and so did  USPS & UPS.   >:(

Damn it!  They upped the shipping and the badge prices on me again.  
They say it is because of the metals markets & fuel surcharges.  >:(

I will modify the order form to reflect $85.00 total cost, instead of $75.00.  :'(
Let's just make the change effective on 01 FEB 2008.
EDIT..EDIT..EDIT..EDIT..August 2016The price is now $95.00 and I'm still losing money.

Manassas Jack, I will honor your order with the older price.  And any others that get to me before the end of the week.  8)

Your Pard,

I just got your order.  The process will begin today.

EDIT:
BTW:  The badges will have to go up to $85.00 to break even.  Yours will be fine, though, Bob!

Howdy MG,

I'll take one too!!!!!  Downloaded the form and after you email the go ahead, I'll mail you a check for $85.00.  I am also a member of "ROBS".  It was started a couple of years ago called the "Royal Order of Bisley Shooters."  Thanks again for the interest in Ruger Shooters.
