    I openly admit my basis for Ruger. Have been sold on the for close to 40 years. Not the only brands I won but by far the most. I has always seen Ruger as high value for dollars spent.
    About 20 years ago I stopped buying any not US made and US company owned.
    My current carry depending on weather and dress
    Ruger Sr9c,LC9,LCP and S&W .38 body Guard so I not all Ruger.

    Not surprised by Turaus to much. They built a very good low cost revolver for some time I have a 20+ year old 669 that is a fine weapon. They entered into the Auto market with some low cost weapons that sold while they had some issues people still bough them. The Tuarus version of the 92F sold well for them some claimed it was top of the line.
    I have not purchased any more sense switching to US only.

    Why is that? Doesn't it bother you that there's something out there that you don't own? I have some Rugers, a Beretta and a Kimber. Working on the Glock. But as time goes on while saving the dough, a thought of another AR keeps crossing my mind.

    I was really surprised to see ruger where it is, then I realized over 60% of my collection was ruger, including my two most often carried pistols.
    I always felt like ruger fans were like reo speedwagon fans, just slightly out of step with the norm, I guess we are really more like Katy perry fans after all.

    Kimber guys must be listening to that Sunday night alt rock hour on public radio

    I expect Taurus to be high since there are so many 'new' gun owners entering the market.

    I am not suprised to see Taurus where they are , because of folks new to firearms, who are perhaps younger,and most likely don't want to spend a lot of money, and figure, wow, I can save X...... and still get a firearm that appears decent.
    And besides, the guy at the gunshop say's they sell a lot of them.
    Not my own personal rationale, but hey!

    The Ruger 10/22 IIRC is the largest selling rifle in US history.

    If that list was based on dollar amount instead of units sold, I'd bet that the order of the list would be significantly different. (i.e. One Colt/Kimber 1911 = 4-5 Ruger LCPs price wise)

    I've got four of those manufacturers plus throw in Weatherby, Ithaca and Winchester but these are all long guns. Since this was in "Handgunner" it kind of explains why Remington and Winchester weren't on the list

    I agree. I've got a Mark 1, Mark 2, SR22, LC9, Security Six, and a Single Six. Plus a Red Label Over/Under.
