    I rather be safe then sorry.
    It's better to have it when you need it then need it and dont have it.

    Yes, they are good and the price is also good. Most of them are also heavy.

    what supertac 45 said! I have carried a Ruger p89; it is heavy but it was under $350 used! The nice part is it was broke in!! I would carry it still except I like my PT111 better and it was about that same price new.

    Ruger makes every type of firearm that most normal folks need. However, I do not intend to singlehandedly support them! I got the LCP and the SP-101 and the .22 carbine and the Mini 14. I believe in diversity of famous brand names to spread the wealth and my disposable income. Beside, you gotta buy bullets!

    Great guns, especially the revolvers. I love the GP100, IMHO the best revolver made.

    You may not like guns. You may choose not to own one. That is your right.
    You might not believe in God. That is your choice.
    However, if someone breaks into your home at 3AM the first two things you are going to do are:
    1) Call someone with a gun.
    2)Pray they get there in time." - A wise man

    There are many Ruger handguns. They are solid, reliable guns, many tend to be a bit big and blocky. The semi autos aren't the most popular for concealed carry and it may be difficult to find a good concealed carry holster for one.

    The first handgun I bought was a Ruger KP-89 (9mm), I also had a KP-90 (45). I also have a couple Ruger revolvers.

    My son carries the SR9 full size. Its a tank, check out the online manual about what that baby will shoot with no problems at all. Way beyond SAMMI nonsense.

    You would have big troubles finding a better CCW gun than an SP101, especially with the bobbed hammer option: enough weight to suppress the brutal recoil of a .38 +P, but light enough to carry all day. And talk about "built like a tank"...

    -Bill

    PS: My dream CCW revolver would be a SP101 with a 3" barrel, bobbed hammer, windage adj sights, and in .38spl/.357 mag. (FYI: This configuration is not a cataloged Ruger item though...).

    I 2nd this, I have the 3 and 4 inch GP100, the 3 inch is beautifully balanced in my view.

    Well built quality weapons. Can't speak for the LCP or LCR, but the rest of their line up are built like tanks.

    Ruger makes a great line of pistols

    I've heard they shoot better than Bryco, Jimenez and Jennings...combined.

    I have had a variety of Ruger handguns, and they have all been excellent firearms. Presently, I only have one 'plunker', but it's still a dependable firearm.
    I would have on concern buying a Ruger, and I'm sure I will own more in the future.
