RUGER PC 9MM CARBINE $649 ruger.com
This rifle is destined to be another winner from Ruger. It is a bit of a jack-ofall-trades. You can see it as a utilitarian truck rifle, a pack-along survival gun (thanks to its easy-to-break-down design), a small-game rifle, or a personal-protection rig. But at its heart, it is a hell of a plinker and will be used to punch paper and ring steel more than anything else.
