The announcement of the special dividend came on November 19...
Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (RGR) announced today that its Board of Directors voted to declare a special dividend of $4.50 per share on the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock. This cash dividend will be paid on December 21, 2012 to shareholders of record as of December 7, 2012.

Since the Ex-Dividend date is always two business days before the Record Date, or December 5, you'd have to buy the stock by close of business on December 4 in order to be entitled to receive the dividend.

Of course, if the "Mayan prophesy" comes true and the world ends on December 21, none of this will matter...:) I hate when that happens.
