    Handgun Reliability Poll - Ruger (centerfire only)

    OK, since reliability is arguably the most important consideration in a defensive handgun, I'd like to conduct a poll.

    Here are the ground rules:

    You must have personally owned a firearm(s) made by the manufacturer in question.

    You yourself must have experienced the malfunction, if any.

    Malfunctions due to dud ammo are not counted, but the inability of the gun to digest a particular type of ammo is counted as one malfunction.

    Malfunctions are counted even if the manufacturer or a gunsmith later fixed the issue.

    Recalls are not counted, unless you yourself experienced a functional issue related to the recall.

    If you own several handguns from the same maker, just add up the total of any malfunctions you may have had.

    Thanks for participating!
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I've owned a Police Service Six - A Security Six & a Super Blackhawk and never had any malfs.
    I've had a few with a MARK .22 but, we're not counting rimfire here.

    Security Six never had a problem, same with the Blackhawk. Almost three decades and a lot of rounds fired and they're still working fine.

    I have a Security Six and I`ve had several ftfs. Good dent in primer and all rounds fired the second time around. I don`t know if it`s the ammo but all malfunctions were with American Eagle 158 grain JSP.I`ve had no problems with the self defense load I use which is Federal 125 grain JHP. Also no problems with my reloads which also use Federal primers. I also own a Rossi .357 and it has never had a ftf with American Eagle. A bit of a puzzle. Your thoughts ?

    Never had an issue with my GP100, Super Blackhawk, or former Blackhawk.

    P95 and LCP. Never a failure of any type in either, factory nor home-grown ammo.

    I have had 2 P89s and a P95, not a single problem out of either one of them.

    Several Blackhawks, Super Blackhawk, Redhawk, Security Six, GP 100 and a P-89, never a problem with any.
