    *holds head down in shame* Bought my Ruger brand spankin new. Never opened the manual. Watched a video online to make sure I could strip it, clean it, and put it back together.... and that was it.

    Brand new here and brand new to handguns. Just thought I would chime in to say I've thoroughly read all of the manuals for my rifles. Just bought a Ruger SR22 this weekend and before I did anything with it I read the entire manual, disassembled it to cleaning level and then reassembled it just so I would know how. Then I went to the range and put a few hundred rounds through it.

    I'll scan the manual to see if there is anything I need to know about takedown and reassembly. I immediately stop once I hit the crap about how guns are dangerous and how I should never carry a gun with a loaded chamber and all the other CYA legalese.

    By some of the questions on this forum, you can tell that reading is NOT fundamental.......

    I read the manual, not only for handguns but just about anything I buy, or get. I know that there are many sharp sorts that don't need the manuals 'cause they know all about this stuff anyway...I'm just not one of those...kinda thick, I am, but I eventually get it.

    I absolutely do. My wife calls me a sponge when comes to learning anything new or different. I want to know everything I can so I also comb the forums for more information.

    Life is way too short to spend time reading owner's manuals.

    I read everyone of them. Afterwards I strip clean the weapon, run about 50 rounds through them and clean again.

    I always read the manuals, mostly so I know how to put it back together. After all, everybody knows guys can disassemble anything.

    When you think you know all there is to know, it is time that you stop and learn something because you have stopped paying attention.

    Who Reads the Manufacturers Handgun Manual

    I've been shooting for 37 years and have owned fine handguns for the last 33 of those years, I can honestly say I've read every manual that accompanied each purchase. I can also say each time I learned something I didn't know. I like to decide if reading the manual was worth my time AFTER I've read it.

    I LOVE that! With your permission, I will use it in discussions with my 12-year old son.
