    Your comment that Ruger thinks the average person doesn't need more than 10 rounds is a little off when you factor your above comment in. Ruger doesn't think the average person needs more than 10 rounds in a Single Action Revovler or small light weight carry gun would be a more accurate statement

    Just IMO, the pendulum swung towards the M&Ps, Glocks, XDs, that had capacities of about 17 for 9mm, a bit less for .45 etc. Lots of models, lots of other makers doing so. Lately, I've seen the trend towards single-stack and smaller for easier carry (that's my impression of the reason)...the Nano, the Shield, LCP, the Kahrs still popular, etc.

    While by no means do I want to give up my fullsize M&P I dont really like carrying it. (Love shooting it) I have a Shield ordered. I'll just carry 2 extra magazines instead of one.

    There are trends in gun design like anything else.

    btw, I have 3 Rugers. 2 shoot balloons and one barks.

    What Ruger knows is that bringing new products to the market is good for business.

    Many people say Smith & Wesson, and Ruger, both have a history of "Screwing us" shooters, when it comes to assault weapons bans.

    I don't care, they make great products.
