Hey, introducing myself to the forum. I have noticed that I have been buying a lot of Rugers lately. The trend was not intentionally, just that the firearms I'm currently interested in seem to be Rugers. I've picked up an AR556, a PCC, an LCP Max, a Hunter/Magpul 6.5 CM, and a second 10/22 over the past couple years. Seems like Ruger's product line is providing the configuration, cost, and quality that meets my best value criteria. I apologize for sounding like a Ruger fanboy.
