I'll put any Ruger semi-auto pistol against anything Canik makes as far as quality and reliability go. Canik's TP9 is no more reliable than the SR9 or current Security 9.

The Ruger Precision Rifle, and the American rifles in center fire or rim fire I would put up against any Turkish made rifles as well.

If Turkey sees a major political change maybe I'll revisit my stance, but for now - buying a Turkish gun is supporting a regime that I'd rather see toppled.

Ruger took a drastic turn once Bill Ruger was no longer in control. Same name, but not the same people behind it, nor the same ideals. Same with Smith & Wesson - their shenanigans during the Clinton administration were no doubt because of their foreign owners. The Brits no longer own Smith & Wesson, and it shows. Don't be surprised if Smith comes out with a line of bolt actions, especially precision bolt actions in the next year or two either. They're now producing shotguns (even if they are gimmicky KelTec style shotguns)
Ruger makes reasonably priced, dependable guns. I wish they had chosen to offer 10 and 20 round magazines for the mini-14 6.8 ranch rifle. Those made by promag aren't near the quality of the 5 round mags from ruger.

Haven’t handled or shot a Ruger that I’ve actually enjoyed.
