    I recently purchased a Ruger LCP, and am very happy. I have never heard anyone say anything poor about a Ruger, and as for now I can't find anything poor to say either.

    I too, am a Glock man and I own a Ruger SP101 .357 magnum, a Ruger LCP .380 with a Crimson Trace laser, and the ever popular Ruger 10/22 .22 carbine. Yes, rest assured, Ruger produces really fine firearms.
    God bless our troops!

    Might I suggest improved grips if your .38s are giving you "brutal recoil"?

    I have a 3" Taurus 605 that came with factory Hogue rubber grips (21 oz IIRC). I have no problems shooting factory .357 ammo from it. My wife bought a .38 special Ladysmith with the pretty wood grips. It has more perceived recoil than my .357.

    The SP101 is a fine gun, but it's weight is not required to shoot decent ammo.

    I'm a Glock man too but I love my SP101 DAO 2.25" .357 mag!!! Try it with Double Tap 125 gr. Bonded Defense and you will see what I mean.

    Hi Ken45,

    I do have really great grips on my 15oz S&W 442 carry gun: The Hogue Monogrips (with heavy rubber covered backstrap).

    But the recoil is still far too brutal for me, even at 6'1" and 155pnds, with the +Ps -- and even with some standard 158grn non +P rounds -- so I have gone with the "low recoil" ammo by Hornady (Critical Defense) and Federal (Personal Defense). These work just fine.

    I have no problems at all with my wife's heavier stainless S&W Centenial with +Ps, even though it is the exact same gun, but about 6 ounces heavier.

    Weight can really matter with the sharpness of the recoil, and I would gladly carry a heavier gun than be brutalized by nerve damaging recoil to my hands....

    -Bill

    Bill,

    I think you hit the nail on the head. I'm not in favor of the ultra light guns. My all steel Taurus 605 is plenty light for carry, but heavy enough that recoil is very reasonable.

    AFAIK, all the Ruger SP101s are heavy enough, they just might need Hogue grips if the recoil is a problem.

    Ruger makes great guns. A friend has over 1k through his SR9 with no issues. My trunk gun is a tan guncoated 182 series mini 14 with a butler creek folder( it's older than me by 8 years, circa 1980)and has been great. Not a target rifle by any means, but a good all around survival rifle.

    My carry pistol is a Ruger P95, and I couldn't be happier. Tough, reliable, and I swear it gets smoother and more consistant and accurate every time I shoot it. I've never quite understood the "ugly" or "blocky" descriptions some folks use to describe Ruger pistols, particularly if its coming from someone who likes Glocks??? Doesn't Glock mean "square" in german? (....;)....) Besides, I like the "I'm gonna rip off yer head and s**t down yer neck" attitude/appearance that my P95 has!

    I'd like to add that I like the weight of my Ruger's .357's (100 w/4" ; 101 w/2.25").

    Ruger SP101 357mag. A bit on the heavy side but VERY durable and surprisingly accurate.

    Yes Ruger makes excellent weapons for those on a budget or even those not a budget.

    I guess I'll take that torch from you then.

    Currently own
    P95DC
    Security Six - snub nose and a 4"
    Mini-14
    p345
    p90
    Mark III
    Super blackhawk .44 mag 7 something inch barrel
    10/22
    44 Carbine

    I carry my 4" security six. Do I think Ruger makes an excellent dependable product? If my list doesn't say it then yes. some seem to have a problem with the size/weight of their pistols but good carry set up and you'll be fine. Still don't see what people are up the air about they carry full size 1911s and XD45s with no problems. My XD45 is heavier than my p95 and i carry both pretty easily specially for a small stature guy.

    IMO Ruger makes very good guns. I have the LCP and have had one of the speed six revolvers as well as a P85 a few years back. All of um were and are fine pistols for self defense. Good price points too.

    I've owned a couple and think highly of them still. But had to sell long ago to get through some money stuff. These are some of my sore subjects of the past. Great quality Ruger guns..
