I'm wondering if Ruger is the new Smith & Wesson. They create innovative firearms and the price is not out of this world.
The new lcr .22 case in point. They have a wide variety of weapons from cowboy action to modern hunting weapons.
While I love my Smith & Wessons the prices are out of reach for the average working Joe. Maybe Ruger will carry the American standard from here on. What say ye?

I had a so-so feeling about them but after shooting my uncle's .454 and owning a lcp and lc9 I can say that they are putting out great stuff.....especially in the concealed carry market with the lcp/lcr/lc9. Some of it isn't terribly original but its an improvement on what they're copying(pf-9 vs lc9) on multiple levels that appeal to me. The value is definitely there and nearly everything they come out with is at a competiive price. The prices of some of the manufacturers are really creeping up and don't seem worth it to me any more but ruger is one of the exceptions

No way.

Ruger is making more plastic junk these days than anybody else. Innovative? Nope. Just cheaper crap.
Old Rugers are worth having though.

Nothing better than somebody who believes every gun made since 1975 is dogshit. The fact that Ruger makes "plastic" guns as well as hoglegs of every variety is a real anomaly in guns today. The LCR is probably the most advanced revolver on the market today, but since it has a polymer trigger group it is trash, right.

I know I love my Rugers (except that 10/22, I only liked that one )
Oooo aaaaa

Who said anything about 1975?

I just hate plastic on a gun. Guns should be made of steel and wood. Milk jugs should be made of plastic. I'm no fan of Glocks either ... doesn't mean they're junk, just don't like 'em. To each his own. .

Geez, when I was a kid, milk was delivered in a glass bottle. Times change.

I'm used to the polymers and have made peace with them. I have a PF9 and an LCP that are fine firearms.

I used to feel the same way as you, concerning steel and wood and wouldn't even consider a Remington Nylon 66 as a lad because of the stock. Now I wish I had one.

All plastics are not the same.

There's some pretty amazing stuff out there.

Some of it even fixes itself.

There are great plastics out there. And if someone wants a plastic gun, that's fine. I happen to like metal, especially exotic alloys like aluminum/scandium and titanium. I don't wear a plastic watch, and I don't carry plastic guns. Personal preference.

I joined a new range/sportsman's club today. $20.00 / year, Couldn't pass it up. It's quite informal, in fact I got to do a mag dump with my AR. No good reason to other than I could. doG, that was fun. Also, I got to shoot the SMLE today, and I think it's a keeper.
