My wife asked why I wasn't a member, embarrassing.

I'm a little sheepish to say this, but it never occurred to me to join a Ruger forum. When I explain why, some of you will think I'm out of my head.

My wife doesn't shoot often, but she understands my two sons and I are fairly avid shooters. We enjoy target shooting, deer hunting, skeet, and sometimes competition. My eldest son is in the Navy, my youngest in high school, and my wife is an awesome BOYMOM. We try to make two or three range trips each month, and way more often when my eldest is on leave.

So I was on a Beretta forum earlier and my wife asked what I was typing about. She says, "I thought you gave up on Beretta, didn't you trade them off?' I admitted I was just answering a few questions based on prior experience. She replies, "okay, cool" and we both went back to doing our thing.

A bit later she asks what my Ruger Forum members thought about my newest revolver. I replied that I didn't belong to a Ruger Forum, and she asks, "WHAT, aren't most of guns Ruger"?

The truth set in. We each have our own 10/22s. My two sons have a GP100, and I have a stainless 4" Security Six. I carry an LCR 38 daily. The new gun my wife was asking me about is a Blackhawk convertible 45 that I can't put down.

Once I figured it out, about half of our firearms are Ruger. I guess the only excuse I have for not joining this forum is that none of those firearms have ever let me down, ever given me problems, nor ever failed to perform as expected.

So here I am.

I'm looking to add a few more Ruger firearms to the mix. I want to replace my shoddy Savage 11 for a left-hand Ruger in .308. Maybe a compact American or maybe a Gunsite Scout lefty. Who knows from there.

Howdy and welcome from North Texas.

You finally made it to Ruger Forum. I made the forum a while back myself after owning a number of Rugers. ��
