The Ruger is like a high-maintenance woman who's good in bed. It causes the guy a lot of frustration but he'll put up with the minor inconveniences for the good times.
My Target model is the cheapest handgun, in the lowest caliber I own, but the most used and would be the very last pistol I would sell! Yes, I agree...
