I don't believe Ruger wasted time with even trying. Their market is the civilian market, and they have thrived. What they lose in the "I gotta have it because police, and military have it." with a wider choice of firearms. Firearms that cater to military, or police markets tend to overcharge the civilian market.

For a police officer the handgun is the first line of defense, yet this is mostly decided on cost. Military the sidearm is basically a BUG for a rifle, handguns in the past were rarely issued to grunts. IMO the government spends way too much money on a simple task, when in the long run they will get the gun they wanted in the first place.
