I don't have an issue with Ruger in the least. I have a 10/22, a Mark III Classic and at present a 6" stainless GP100. I've owned Blackhawks and Vaquero's as well.
If I was allowed to have an LCR, I'd own one of those too. (In CA, only Law Enforcement can own them. Nice, huh?)
The Ruger autos, with the exception of the two pistols mentioned above just don't appeal to me. They've always felt kind of "clunky" to me. That's why I liked the SR9. It seemed a bit more slim and graceful. I just don't care for that trigger type. JMHO
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. ― Samuel Adams
