This is a discussion on Ruger is at it again.... within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by camsdaddy 9mm SP101 They did that one already - I have one....
I am too. I had been wanting to get a tricked out, tack driving, long range bolt action for a while now, but in all reality, I can barely see much at 800 - 1,000 yards with the naked eye, let along hit someone at that range. Soooo, the thought of a decent all around Scout rifle had been nagging me in the back of my mind lately.
And then Ruger comes up with this version. I'm really giving it a lot more thought now. Realistically, for me anyway in a SHTF scenario, I'd likely be engaging predators no further out than 350 yards or so. If I have to go further out, I always have my trusty .30-06 Mauser '98.

I'll wager its going to be a defensive shotgun of some flavor. Or maybe a PCC, a new design or even a remake. Those are the two I'd do if I were sitting at the head of Rugers corporate table.
A Ruger 2011 would be a logical guess, but I think ultimately, it would be a failure for Ruger due to a over saturated 1911 market.

Whatever it is, you won't be able to find one for a year.
To me a Pocket 9 makes a lot of sense given the success of the LCP. A defensive pump shotgun to compete would also be a great thing. as they dont really have anything on the market like that.

Okay, I'll play....
9mm SP101; they did that but they'd have instant sales but only for a while; but low cost to tool up assuming they still have some of the tooling; but then they're competing iwth their own SP101 and competing for line time on the same lines so they'd actually be working against themselves.
A 9mm competitor against the PM9 or PF9 would work, base it on the LCP only on steroids.
Really dreaming? an SP101 .22 with adjustable sights
God only knows but I'm also of the opinion it'll be absolutely under whelming....but we can hope, right?
As for handguns, they've got lots of bases covered: pocket .380, j frame size light revolvers in .38 and .357, slightly larger heavy snub revolvers and large frame revolvers in MANY calibers, mid size 9mm SR9, small 9mm SR9c, large semi-autos P series in multiple calibers.
Seems one thing that is missing is a sub compact .45 auto. I'll go with that guess.

Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.
What about an SR22C? With like a 30 round capacity? HeHe I guess they'd have to name it something else, as that is their .22 AR.
