    “No honest man needs more than 10 rounds.”

    Bill Ruger would know, apparently.

  2. Chris Says:

    Considering that more Ruger handguns are sold than probably all but Smith & Wesson handguns in the US it is no surprise. Especially when you factor in that Rugers almost always cost a good bit less than the Smith lineup.

    Yeah its likely a laundry list of guns commonly found (and stolen).

    Still interesting that bygone makers like Lorcin and hard-to-find guns like Norinco made the list in numbers that are probably well within the margin of error.

    Bottom line, Criminals get guns, and they probably don’t get much CHOICE in the guns they get.

    Chris nailed it. Sort of like the reason Hondas Accords are at or near the top of the list each year for stolen cars – when you’re gonna steal a car (or a gun), you’re more likely to get a Honda (or a Ruger) simply because there are so many of them out there in your “stealing-from” territory.

    As to Bill Ruger and his honest man with only 10 rounds, he understood that the first rounds out the barrel were the ones that count most to the bad guy being shot at, but he somehow missed out that sometimes the need for more than 10 rounds exists among honest men.

    And that being honest, need has nothing to do with what they want, and should be able to get.
