    Do you know, are Rugers all American made?

    Germans make great guns. I love Walthers and HKs.

    I am a big time Beretta nut - they are Italian. But, 3 of my 4 Berettas are made in the USA.

    I just buy guns I like - I don't worry about where they are made at, personally.

    I shoot the SR9 quite often It is a glass filled nylon frame. It is anything but slick. I shot one of them in USPSA so I put about 150 rounds down range every other Tuesday evening (I roltate my CZ in every other week) with it. i also put about 100 more on the weekend practicing. It is interesting to hear the teflon analogy again , I have not heard that about Rugers for years. I actually thought it went away.

    Ruger is a pretty good company very CS oriented and theymake a fine weapon for the place it holds in the market. To answer the original question......I support my local gun shop owner, my local gunsmith and I buy a pile of ammo. I buy the gun that best suits my intended purpose regardless of origin at the time with the money I feel it is worth. If I do not have enough money I wait until I do to make a purchase. I would never buy a gun manufactred in Florida just to save 100 bucks. NEVER! I would, on the other hand gladly buy one manufactured in Mass. for an extra 100 bucks though. I will also buy one made in the Czech Republic next time I see one of the stainless versions for a decent price. Because they are very good weapons.

    I love my Sig's , Beretta's, Walther's, Rugers and more..

    I buy the gun that I like - where it is made is secondary to me.

    I wish they were all American made - but no way - there are just too many excellent guns made all over the world.

    I always try and buy America First, but when it comes down to safety, I go with the best regardless where it is made, assembled etc. I know that Glock spends a good portion of money here and employs about as many people here as they have on staff in Austria.

    The two objectives are rarely in line with each other.

    I agree. I would love to buy all American, but since I don't have a lot of money, I have to buy the very best that my few dollars can afford, and sometimes that means buying something made in another country.
