Bored on a Friday and looking at gun stuff.

If you could only use, or own firearms manufactured by one company which one would it be and why?

I’m thinking Ruger would be my first choice.

Ruger for rifles (precision, hunting and ARs), solid revolvers, serviceable semi autos, 22 pistols and 10/22. They cover all my needs except a pump shotgun.

That’s a solid choice I can stand behind.

remington wouldnt be a bad pick, but ruger is definitely the best choice.

When I read your thread title, the first company that came to mind was Ruger. Love my Ruger revolvers. Love my 77/357. I don't own a Ruger American, but that may change in the future.

Not an easy choice. I like Ruger (a lot) but if I only had one to choose from it would be CZ. Their rifles are the best for the buck (IMO) in .22 LR & WMR. Their center fire rifles are nice. They sell shotguns and they own Dan Wesson that sells quality Revolvers and 1911s. Hard to beat IMO.

Ruger. I sent a Ruger American back to them to get rebarreled and they sent me back a new rifle at no charge and they even paid for the shipping.

Most of my stable is Glocks and ARs, so this is tough.

Ruger has AR pistols these days as well as carbines, and I'm really fond of my LCRs... their CF pistols aren't anything special, but I could get by with them.

Ruger for me, then I guess... though I am glad it's just for giggles.

Funky Shotguns, funky rifles, a 30 round 22mag, pocket guns... they have it all.
