I love my Ruger SR40c (have to get that out of the way)
I like some features that Glock has. i like the interchangeability of their mags into any model of same caliber. I like their very pronounced reset. I don't like their feel in my hand. (the Ruger beats them in that by far). I appreciate the Ruger safety trigger (Very Glock like). But in the same sense that's all the safety you get with a Glock. It's not a definitive Bad vs Good. its a matter of personnel choice. They say safety is a mental exercise. The gun instructor i had side works as a personnel body guard, so a manual safety obviously slows him down. I also believe Glocks not very forgiving. They are finicky, and maybe a bit too unforgiving to a novice. maybe sometime time in the future, I'll change my mind. Right now price wise , quality wise ill stick with Ruger & Smith & Wesson (in that order).

I had a Glock 21 for 5 or 6 years and sold it, just never could bond with it.

I had a bit more sympathy here than in the other forum i posted this in. My brother-in-law (retired Police Captain) his service gun was a Colt Python .357 Magnum. (He liked the stopping power of the .357 mag). he told me if he would ever get a semi auto, It would be a Sig Sauer. he did not like Glocks. Its not a matter of hate with me. Next time i go shooting with my friend, I will ask him to bring his 90's Glock with us. I just think being so new, I have heard stories of mishaps with Glocks. I am a very utilitarian type of person. What looks HIP or COOL isn't my thing. It's what works for me. I view Ruger as the Everyman's (Or women) gun. There is a balance between quality and price. at $399.00 for my SR40C, that puts the gun in a category that says the 2nd Amendment isn't just for the RICH. believe me if you can afford a &5K-$6K custom handgun, believe me you show me one of those and i'll give OOHS & AAHS all day long (it's like you are driving your family sedan or SUV and a Ferrari passes you, and a big smile comes to your face) .

If i ever hit Lotto, I would buy one of everything Ruger makes (Except the LCR, that i would buy in every caliber made... it does look sooo cool, and that 22LR version bets its a blast to shoot, and cheap to shoot also). then i would add the M&P40c and the Springfield Xd-S. just to mix the collection up a bit.

A over rated hunk of black plastic made in a country other than the USA:D
Parent company is not in the US, but they are made in the USA now.

When did this happen?:confused:
Assembly has been happening in Smyrna, GA for years, but now they are doing fabrication in GA too and the slides/frames are now marked made in USA instead of Austria.

You know, I've got nothing against a Glock per se...but I've shot them in the past and just didn't think they felt right in my hand. Lots of guys I know love 'em. Me, not so much.
