Am I alone?

Don't tell me there are no Ruger owners out there… I've shot Rugers since back around 1956 and they have always been a good solid dependable weapon. Just bought my latest one an SR1911cmd. Beautiful weapon with lots of extras and a price that doesn't cost your first born.

My Ruger collection:

Mark 1 i think .22 auto pistol
10/22 rifle
American Standard in 302win
American Standard in 243win

I don't know why either. I like Rugers. But for some reason, the LCP is the only one we own.

Their revolvers are so solid, although I only own 1, the SP101. I don't like how some of their (older model) semiautos fit in my hand, and they are bulky. Although the SR9/c seem to have good reviews. I would like to shoot one if the opportunity comes up.

I kinda like them. I own two 1022's, a 7722, a MkII Comp Target, a MkII 2245, an SR22, an LCP, a Single Ten SS and a SP101. I have been shooting Rugers since I was a kid. Oops, forgot the SR9c.

I like Rugers and own a couple. My favorites are their revolver and rim-fire firearms.

Your not alone. I particularly like the Service Six, Speed Six and the Security Six. Great shooters, imho.

I like them and have owned three, including an LCP, LC9, and SR9C. I think the SR9C/SR40C are better than the Glock 26/27 because they fit the hand and point better and have better stock sights. A SR1911 is on my want list after shooting the range rental.

KP944 w/manual safety- heavy, massively overbuilt, not accurate for me, much prefer the G23.
KP95DC- a bit wide, accurate, utterly reliable, underrated. A favorite of mine.
KGP141- solid revolver, accurate.
Single Six convertible .22LR/.22 Magnum- accurate, fine plinker.
10/22 stainless- accurate, hi-viz replacement sights, lots of fun to shoot, bolt carrier to frame re-assembly a nuisance.

I miss my brace of 6.5 inch Blackhawks, had to sell them a few years ago. I am however back in the market for a .357/9mm convertible in 4.62. Also, the wife wants her own LC9.

I have a Sp101 and LCR357. The LCR is carried every day. The SP Is in the rotation with a few other Snubs for back up or main carry.

I have 2

a 50th anniversary edition single six and a modified 10/22. Really like both.

When it comes to semi autos, I'll pass on owning a Ruger, just have no faith in them in that flavor. Their revolvers are everything I could ever expect in a revolver, semi autos, meh.
