I have always been a long time supporter of Remington. Remington is favorite in the Chevy vs Ford argument. But I have to say, for inexpensive guns, Ruger has stepped up their game and dominated Remington. The RPR has dominated the 1000-1200 platform. Ruger re-released the 9mm sp101, the pc Carbine and updated it. Now they just announced that the came out with a 22 caliber trainer.
