Ruger Announces Retailer of the Year

Randy’s Hunting Center of Michigan has been named 2017 Ruger Retailer of the Year. Owner Randy Brown was recognized for his support of Ruger, his industry leadership in firearms retailing, and his enthusiasm for the promotion of new products.

Brown received an engraved Ruger Scout Rifle in .450 Bushmaster in recognition of his outstanding performance. The award was presented during the 2018 SHOT Show.

“Randy’s Hunting Center was the clear choice for our 2017 award recipient,” said Shawn Leska, Ruger’s vice president of sales. “Randy insisted that we manufacture the Ruger American Ranch Rifle in .450 Bushmaster, and his prediction of the success of that model was astounding. We thank him for bringing the idea to us, and for his hard work in selling as many of them as possible to his customers. The family-owned business, run with the support of Randy’s six sons, has been a longtime friend of Ruger.”

"We are truly honored to receive this award," said Brown. "Ruger's dedication to product innovation keeps our job exciting. I humbly accept this award on behalf of our hard-working employees and look forward to continued success with the Ruger brand." (
