How much do you trust your Ruger pistol(s)?

I can't exactly knock on wood, but, for one stove pipe issue on my P-95 I can say I have had clear sailing with it so far. I was shooting alu. ammo and decided that this was the issue. Been shooting brass ever since with no issues. And there is my Mark III which I have owned for many years. No telling how many rds. I have put thru it and it has never malfunctioned. Do you have a Ruger pistol that you would trust your life with?

I have six Ruger pistols and I trust everyone of them 100%.

A .22LR in your pocket is better than that .45 at home, right? Any gun is better than no gun at all, right?

Like any machine they can screw up without warning. Thatís why you have to practice clearing drills occasionally.

If I did not trust my guns I would not own them. Both Ruger wheel guns (older GP and Blackhawk) are great. I even trust my mid-90s Taurus 85, now the tackle-box gun.

Only guns I mistrust are friends’ guns that malfunction: a Bersa Thunder which is such a nice-looking weapon but loves to jam, and the same guy’s Dan Wesson that was “improved” by an amateur gunsmith.

I keep my guns stock, maintain them, and have a real smith look over any concerns before they become malfunctions.

I don't own any Ruger pistols because in general Ruger doesn't make pistols I like other than the SR1911. I had a LWC I would trust with my life but I sold/traded it for something. Should have kept that one. It was an excellent pistol. I do own more than a few Ruger revolvers and I trust all of them. I don't own any guns of any brand that aren't 99.9% reliable. I say 99.9% because, as has already been mentioned, any mechanical device has the potential for failure.

Thatís right. Tap and rack drills with semi autos.

Bonk, I completely agree with you concerning Ruger revolvers. My Blackhawk S/A .357 I bought new in 1970 is my favorite gun of all that I own. I have put way North of 4,000 rds. thru it and it still looks as good as the day I bought it. And talk about hitting spot on, she gets the job done when it comes to accuracy. I get it out almost every day and look at it. I really love that gun!

Not a fan of the newer, poly Rugers and don't own any of them.

But their revolvers, the Mark series, and the P series have all proven to be well-built and generally reliable firearms.

SR9c almost every day. Every now & then will tote either a shield or a G30s, but SR9c for the most part. I know a lot of people, especially on this thread; donít like the newer polymer pistols. I like revolvers & 1911ís as well but most are a bit too heavy to carry all day. Donít get me wrong itís doable but I like the weight & feel of my SR9c. Different strokes for different folks.
