    Not too bad of a pistol once I figured out the trigger!

    AP, what do you mean "...once I figured out the trigger."?
    I've shot my buddy's Ruger 57 and had no problem with the trigger.

    That 57 is an excellent pistol and a perfect companion to my PS90. I would be willing to bet that the Ruger 57 is actually more reliable than the FN Five seveN pistol. It's certainly more ergonomic.

    The poor Five seveN ergonomics surprises me given how very ergonomic the P90/PS90 is.

    UPDATE:
    In this Brave New World of COVID 19 and panic gun and ammo buying will we even see any Ruger 57 pistols for sale?
    Is Ruger still manufacturing or have they shut down B/C they were labelled "non-essential"?

    Looks like a Hi Point hybrid to me!

    Has RUGER cut back production during the pandemic? WHY the hell can't I find a 57 anywhere??

    UPDATE:
    I've since bought a RUGER 57 in late November. Before I took delivery I'd already got a 3rd magazine and a Kydex OWB holster for it from The Ruger Store.
    Then I had The Vest Guy make an enclosed double mag pouch from Multi-Cam Cordura canvas with plastic QR buckles.
    Finally I got a HOLOSUN 509T circle/dot red dot sight for it. Zombies BEWARE! With that pistol, 60 rounds and my PS90 with 250 rounds I'll put those walking dead out of their misery. (Gotta quit watching Walking Dead!)

    I don't believe the CEO from Ruger is a member here. Maybe you should whine to him about your plight at ShopRuger.com. 10 months of crying here and he hasn't answered yet.
