Love all my Ruger firearms. From .22 to .44 Mag and everything in between, including this great pistol in 5.7×28. Just wish Ruger made ammo.


I have everything I need to load that round and had planned on getting one last year once the price dropped a little after the initial buying surge. Well, things didn’t work out as planned. So the supplies are still here and maybe some day. I had the die set because I use it to turn 5.7 brass into 308 caliber rifle bullets. I have about two gallons of brass or so.


My new EDC. Sweet shooter, low recoil. Ammo still a bit high, but love this gun!


William Ruger went to rapist Bill Clinton and proposed a ban on magazines over 10 rounds.
William Ruger helped write the ‘assault rifle ban’ for the Clinton cluster.

I don’t buy things from traitors.
You limps do as you please.

You do know that Bill died a long time ago and that the company has had an entirely different mindset for the last quarter century, don’t you?
