Yea, I came so close to buying one. But one only need to go to the Riger forum to see all the complaints, and that's a place of diehard Ruger fans.
On the XD forum a while back, you'd see people complain about the rusting issue, but would still defend the gun to anyone w/ neg comments. So, I was kinda surprised to read so much neg stuff on that forum website.
Anyway, I think if you want one, better give it another couple of years for them to work out the problems. Beretta had the same sort of circumstances with the Beretta tomcat when it first came out.
