    "I tell ya one thing, "built Ford tough" really used to mean something because that is one tough car to kill."

    Funny you would say that about a '74. I like the style of all Rancheros but, '74-'84 were the worst years for Ford. By '74 the compression was so low in all engines (not just Ford) they made very little power. Because of this Ford lowered the nickle content of engine blocks to save money. As power started to come back around in the mid-80s they started to make stronger blocks again.

    I've owned a lot of cars since '85 and the best 2 were a '96 Full Size Bronco and an '01 Mustang GT BULLITT. The worst one was a '91 Toyota 4x4 pickup.

    My first car was a '78 Triumph Spitfire.

    What was your first car?

    1993 Ford Crown Victoria, a used police interceptor, I loved it. Bought it with 124+ thousand miles and drove it for 4 and a half years. Never gave me any trouble, well made, safe, perfect for a new driver.

    since the ranchero is laid up and my blazer need to get some work done I needed a set of wheels to get around for a little bit. found a '74 pontiac catalina in the paper for $400+ title fees and it runs and drives like it just rolled off the floor. I think I can sell the stereo to recoup most of my investment.

    1993 Teal Ford Thunderbird V-6 with a rebuilt engine. The interior was dogged out. Bought it outright. I should have never traded it in.

    A 1986 Pontiac 6000 LE Wagon. LOL Had a 2.8 v-6 and ran like a top, even at 145000 miles when a lady ran a stop sign and totaled it. My first new car was a 1995 Ford Escort 2 door green with a 5 speed. Drove it for almost 10 years.

    ruger's new LC9 and my disapointment

    the ruger p345 was( I'm fairly sure) rugers first attempt with the giant LCI, internal lock, and mag disconnect. I had one for a while and liked the feel and size. the internal lock itself never gave me an issue but I never used it. the manual thumb safety actually did break on that gun and coupled with the reports of the disconnects breaking I sold it right after it came back from ruger for the safety, NTM the safety is in the wrong spot on those anyway. After my generally negative experience with that gun it soured me on features like this. I have a P95dc that has never given me a lick of trouble but I'm most fond of glocks. yes the operator 1911 I have is a very good gun but I carry a glock everyday and I just love them for their simplicity and proven reliability. except for the issues with the gen 4's. not sure why they'd fix something that wasn't broken.

    ruger's new LC9 and my disapointment

    I got to play around with one of these a couple days ago.

    The manual safety isn't going to get switched on accidentally. I had a hard time intentionally switching it on. That thing is very stiff, much stiffer than any safety I've used. That being said, switching it off is far easier than switching it on.

    The trigger is long and smooth, somewhat like a Kahr. Very natural if you've gotten used to shooting a DAO revolver.

    Time will tell with the reliability of the magazine disconnect and the internal lock... I went back to the store the next day after thinking it over and put one on special order, they were asking a fair price.

    even more likely than it failing is the possibility of it getting accidentally switched on.

    Hussky: it's not about not using it it's about not training to take it off so that it's habit for if you ever have to draw it. More importantly to those who don't like traditional safeties it adds another part (or several) to fail, adds unnecessary weight & a dohicky to get in the way of grip on such a small frame gun or snag. I would have preferred they too their smash hit LCP and enlarged it enough to chamber & fire a 9mm round. Done.

    This is really silly, if you are going to error why not error on the side of safety and if you don't like a safety on a gun don't push the little safety on.

    shooting in AZ

    What I am amazed at is that Arizona is right to carry state and of all those people no one shot back. No one even beat the snot out of him. His mug shot looked like a class pic for his year book. This is going to have a ripple affect and be used for many years to come as a tool to destroy our rights to own and carry a firearm
