What are your opinions on ruger handguns?

I don't have any experience with their auto loaders but I consider their single action revolvers to be some of the toughest on the market. My Blackhawk has performed flawlessly for several thousand rounds with only cleaning for maintenance.

They're (single and double action revolvers) built like m1 tanks, very sturdy, well worth the money.

Good value.

I don't really like the way they feel/shoot to me... but they are great for the money.

I never liked the fact that Rugers are investment cast as opposed to forged steel like Smiths and Colts; but that's really a theoretical objection. It's hard to imagine a stronger gun. I've never heard of a Ruger revolver failing. My Super Blackhawk was the most reliable .44 I ever owned.

I think their autos are clunky-looking, though.

I'm not too keen on their autos, but their revolvers are awesome! We have a Super Redhawk, and I'm considering the GP100 .357mag

I like to think of them as the toyota of guns. Reasonably priced, and super reliable! You can't go wrong with a Ruger........

Big fan of their .22's in any form. Single action revolvers are par excellance. The rest, third rate junk. I know, you ruger fans are gonna scream bloody murder. Clunky, cast steel is not my cup of tea. I have seen too many Ruger autos fail in a 600 round 3 day course. I have seen slides simply sail off down range. Give me a good forged Smith and Wesson and it will run for tens of thousands of rounds.

I have some Blackhawks and Vaqueros in different calibers and love all of them. Add a Mark I and two Mark II's along with a Security Six and converable 22 SAA. Some of the Vaq's had to be altered to shoot to POA but I love them all.

The only Ruger I've got is the Old Army C&B and I for one love it.

Strongest revolver out there
I bought some .45 colt ammo for hunting. the box warning read use only in Ruger, Colt Anaconda and Thompson center. Note no S&W.
