Tom and Steve Fjestad, of Blue Book fame, were at the Wanenmacher Tulsa Arms Show in November, 2010 filming for the show and interviewed RCA Display Show Coordinator, Matt Olivier, about the RCA and Ruger collecting.

Co-founded in 1975 by the late Stephen K. Vogel and John R. Hansen, Jr., the Ruger Collectors' Association is an independent organization of Ruger collectors, not affiliated with or sponsored by Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. The association's members are dedicated to the study and preservation of Ruger firearms and memorabilia while promoting camaraderie and fellowship among those interested in collecting and exchanging information about these firearms.

The RCA publishes a quarterly journal, known as The Ruger Collectors' Journal, and regularly displays at the NRA and other major shows. From time to time special issues of Ruger firearms have been produced for and purchased by the RCA, and offered exclusively to its members. The Ruger Collectors' Association, Inc. headquarters are in Southport, CT.
