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.
