    I just clicked on the banner ad for the new Ruger SR22 pistol and that is one butt ugly pistol! I think the KelTec PMR30 takes first place, but the SR22 comes in a pretty close second.

    Agreed! They produce a beautiful 1911 followed by this? Must be using different R&D groups!

    I second the p22 look. At least they didn't make it look like their old ruger p-series pistol.

    Well, if it isn't pretty, I just don't know what to do. I mean like how will it ever match my wardrobe? Goodness gracious maybe I'll have to use my Bedazzler on it or duracoat it pink! Maybe a laser engraved unicorn will help it's drab looks?

    it's a ruger it probably works, it's a machine, not a fashion statement

    I don't think it looks bad, but then again I have a few Glocks. I've been looking for a .22 plinker, and if the reviews continue to be good, this is what I'll go with.

    That's what I was thinking the first time I saw it too.

    I kinda like it. It looks like it could be from the prop department of BSG, and as a sci-fi fan, that is a good thing! But then again, I like the look of the Vektor!

    It's prettier than any Glock! Sorry, couldn't resist. You know what IS pretty? Ruger stock (RGR). Wish I'd bought some at $12.00 a couple of years ago (now $36.00) instead of the useless S&W stock I bought.

    If it performs who cares . The sigs look cool but you have to put ground up unicorn horn in the ammo or they dont function. Walther is known for pretty guns lol I wonder if ruger will make a pink one or 4 kinds of cammo . Obviously im a ruger fan lol

    Hey, I'm a Ruger fan too. I own four of them. Just seems to be no in between. They're either pretty good looking guns or plug ugly. I don't know why, but for some reason the SR22 just turns me off, but not the Walther. Like others have said though, if it works, and Rugers almost always do, that's all that matters.

    I'm an old fart so I just like the lines of classic pistols like the S&W wheel guns, 1911's, or the Browning Hi-Power just to name a few.

    I like the looks plus it goes bang every time (according to the YouTube reviewers), with just about any cheap ammo. Will own one at some point. At least Ruger will make plenty of them, unlike Keltec.

    That looks like the governor. Ugly and lots of wrinkles.

    I love pretty guns (thanks JMB) and pretty woman. In that order cause guns are less expensive. Maybe that is why I have many guns and only one wife.

    Well, you are certainly entitled to an opinion and I'll respect your right to share it, but I disagree with it. I like the look of it. Looks like a fun gun to me.

    It looks very much like the Walther P22. If it's anything like the P-22, it will be a GREAT fun gun!

    Took two strippers to the range a couple months ago. All they wanted to shoot was the P22. I took notes on that. When the Ruger gets a threaded barrel, I'm in.
