If you really compare it to a GLOCK, it doesn't look all that much like it, other than being black and having no external hammer. Too, even being a GLOCK fan, I admit GLOCKs are UUUUUUGlYYYY. They work though, and there are a million parts, factory and aftermarket for 'em.

The above poster making comments about them being rented or used in comps, or by PD's makes some good points. I've never thought of that as a good measure, but I think it's because I hadn't thought of it at all. Now I will be sure to use those as some of my measures when shopping. If you are hung up on it, go for it. American made is a big deal to me, too. There are others though that have lifetime warranties though. Jimenez Arms, and SCCY come to mind. Nevermind Ruger(Prolly my personal fave of ALL manufacturers). Kudos to you though for making AMerican made a top priority for your purchase. God bless you, and I hope more of us start doing that since we ALL know our economy needs every bit of help we can give it against the evil people working to wreck it.

P.s. I hope "Herplover" is a reference to loving reptiles, not chicks with herpes! lol

I knew it!! I told my wife that. Something was telling me you don't strike me as the type to enjoy a burning insatiable itch accompanied by sores for the rest of your life!lol

Funny you say that about your Ruger. Goes to show beauty is subjective and definitel in the eye of the beholder. My Dad and my Father-In-Law both acknowledged that Ruger makes some of the strongest and most durable guns available. None of us would ever call em pretty though! Built like a bank vault, for sure. Bill Ruger def preferred function over form. I love 'em, but I think they're mostly ugly. Rugers, that is. Especially their semi-auto handguns. I've seen some gorgeous M77s and 10/22s before, and surely some drop dead gorgeous #1s, but NEVER a P series pistol!lol

My favorite "looking" of the handguns are the various 1911's but alot of them are way out of my price range.A close 2nd would be berettas which once again cost more than i want to spend.Cost alot to feed my pets so cant spend a ton on guns.Try and get 1 a year and already up to 2 this year.Got the high point carbine in 9mm which is fun and reliable to shoot and got a savage axis in 223 which is amazingly accurate.Cant wait to pop a groundhog with it.

Locally, in the news within the last year, there was an incident where a Hi Point .45 pistol "went off by itself". I believe it was in a holster. It was in the rear of a vehicle behind the driver. Can't remember if it was under the seat or in the seat. Anyway, if I remember right the driver was shot in the back, this while the vehicle was moving. I have tried to look it up and see if the news story is still on the net.
