I gave my wife one of those for Christmas. I don't normally like Rugers, but the alternative was the Walther, and I could not wrap my head around a Zamak slide. I would have liked to have bought a Bersa 22, but they are rare as hen's teeth around here. The Beretta 87 I found, had an asking price of $799, so Ruger it was.My only semiauto Ruger pistol.
I have a few revilvers though.
I too have a ruger next to my bed but not in a safe. Well, not a real one exactly. Wouldn't that be tough to get to quickly if needed?The revolver shoots anything. I keep it loaded in a safe next to my bed filled with .357 mag JHP. I would like to have an LCR!
Thank you for not laughing at my Mark II. Most guys do. I am proud of that pistol and she's great fun to shoot.
