Most of my handguns have been imports. From the Phillipines, South America, Italy ( the box said Made in USA, but the gun was stamped italy, go figure). My rifles and .22 and .32 handguns were made in the USA. The rifles and handguns being the single shot break barrel type. Fond of them, but unfortunately they are no longer manufactured. And I have a few milsurps and a couple of Frankengun AR's that I built. With the demise of my favorite rifle, and the loss of 3 of my handguns due to the Taurus class action, I decided to change over to only US made. My choice was Ruger. Since I am predominantly a fan of the Revolver (with exposed hammers), the LCRX was my choice. The rifles were going to be the American Predators in .223 and .308, plus the American Ranch in .300 BLK. The 9mm American Pistol and the LCPII were going to be thrown in for good measure. All started well. Got the LCRX's, the American Pistol and the LCP II. Then things went South. I met a man who was liquidating his Ruger collection. His health was fading and he had no one who wanted, or as he stated, who needed, his guns. I ended up with a SR1911, Super Blackhawk, Single Six Convertible, Bearcat, GP100, and a couple of SP101's. All stainless, all new in box, never fired. Here is my dilemma. I want my bolt guns, but I no longer want the American's. I want the Hawkeye Predator, the Hawkeye Varmint, and the Gunsite Ranch. And since they don't make a 77/300 BLK I'll take a 77/357 too. I feel like I'm drinking wine on a beer budget.
