    ruger sub-compact

    okay - i am sure this topic has been beat to death, but what is the likelihood of ruger coming out with a sub-compact, especially now with the apparent success of the sr9 release? doesn't it seem like a natural thing for them to do, make a sr9 compact?

    also - do you think ruger will improve upon the few issues people are mentioning with the sr9 - such as the mag disconnect block issue - in future versions of the gun?

    I can say the SR9 is the first of what to become a serie of this model. Could a sub-compact be in thatseries? Wait and see.

    Ruger hasn't been terribly friendly to concealed carry and defensive shooting unless police guns are involved.

    * It took them twenty or thirty years to get around to making a small-framed concealed carry snubby, the SP101.
    * Bill Ruger openly advocated a "high capacity" magazine ban in the 1990s, saying, "No honest man needs more than ten rounds."
    * Ruger still won't sell Mini-14 magazines with a capacity higher than five rounds to "peon" armed citizens, even though there is a huge market for reliable 20/30-rounders for that carbine.

    Maybe they will change their collective mind, but Ruger has had 23 years since the introduction of the P85, and I still don't see a compact carry auto from them.

    bill ruger passed away and ruger stock went from over $20 per share to $7 in 2007... i am thinking these obvious changes in thought would be good for the company in general. just sayin'...

    Agreed. I'd be much happier with Ruger if they made small autos for civilian concealed carriers and offered reliable 20-round magazines for the Mini-14 to the armed citizen market. They certainly have the engineering and manufacturing capability to do the former, and they have been making the latter for years - for the police market.

    But instead they pursue marginally profitable niche markets like pseudo-Scout rifles and side-by-side shotguns. Go figure. I guess the Ruger versions of "responsible citizens" don't carry concealed pistols or use semiauto rifles for defense.
