American made

I'm new here and fasinated with this site, very informative. I've been stuck in this damn state of nj for 30 years now and figured i could never get a gun. But now i'm determined to claim my natural right! My question is: I'm hardcore American, buy American but it seems to me you guys favor the german guns. them germans are damn smart (I've ridden KTM dirtbikes for years, and they are the best) Which autoloader, American made gun would be the best buy for my money? For home protection mainly, but affordable to shoot for fun on the weekend in the mountains. I value you guys opinion very much, Thanks for your time. Tennessee hick stuck in NJ.

I "think" I killed the snake. If not, it will suffer a miserable existence.
You have my word.
Welcome doitinthedirt. Ruger is damn good too.
You'll get numerous other opinions. Enjoy!

Ruger has my vote,

I have an old P-89 that is the AK-47 of pistols as far as I am concerned, it will process any ammo, full of dirt and not complain...damn reliable!

At one time, living right on the Pacific, I used to do it in the sand at the beach a lot. If was fine for me, but the girl got her asshole rubbed raw!

Once while I was in Germany I did this girl stretched over the finder of a Borgward car. Didn't have enough money for a hotel room. It was February, colder than hell, snow all over the place. I swept the snow off the fender with my hand, she dropped her drawers, and we got it on. I always wondered if her ass was frozen solid by the time we finished. We were both drunk, so we thought it was fun.
