While I was fishing out the SRH to take a pic for Snake Plisskin’s thread on his new GP, I noticed that Ruger products reside in my safe in greater numbers than any other manufacturer’s guns. I think it’s a combination of several things: Ruger products are affordable. If you look through their catalog there are some guns that go for $1,200 and up, but for the most part the prices of new Ruger guns is within reach of a huge amount of the market. They’re tough. There are lots of “Ruger only” loads for No. 1 rifles and DA/SA handguns for a reason, most other guns just can’t take these heavy loads in the numbers Rugers can. If something g does go wrong, the service is about as good as you’ll find in the industry. Finally, Ruger offers a wider variety of firearms than any other manufacturer I can think of, with the possible exception of CZ (CZ offers a lot of shotguns, which Ruger quit making.) Rifles in bolt, semi and single shot, centerfire and rimfire; revolvers in DA and SA, rimfire and centerfire; pistols in rimfire and centerfire, 1911, Mark IV and other in-house designs; hybrids like “10/22 Chargers”, a new 5.7x28, etc. I even have a now-discontinued 28 ga Red Label, my only Ruger shotgun. DA big bores: A.454/.45Colt SRH, a .41 RH with a V-bead set of sights and a GP in .44 Spl. SA revolvers: A .45 Colt old Vaquero, a 6.5” Single Six .22M-.22LR and a black Wrangler (The last two with Altamont grips). I’ll post more with the last groups, I’ve almost maxed out the photo limit. Stay safe.
