I have never belonged to a forum of any kind, so I'm not sure exactly what to post. I have been a Ruger fan for several years now. My first semi-auto of any kind was a P95 this was a nice introduction to Ruger. The only other semi auto pistol I've fired before was a berreta when I was in the Airforce. Until I got the P95 I was strictly a wheel gun man. Smith 686 and a taurus snubbie .357. The first ruger revolver I got was a single six bisley model .22. I now also own a SP101 .357 and a KP944 as well as a Cougar 8000 the only non ruger in my safe. I have had sigs, a browning hp as well as a couple of CZ's. All good pistols I just always seem to come back to Ruger. I look forward to advice and input from those with more experience with Ruger and firearms in general. Glad to be here!
