I know I will most likely be buying one. It will fit a need I have for a pistol caliber rifle. I own more than a few Rugers and never had much in the way of problems with them. I have read that Ruger didn't want to supply the military with handguns. They don't want to go the way of Colt where all of their production is sold to the military. When that deal drys up they are in trouble just like Colt was or still is.
