My roommate is looking at purchasing his first handgun. His budget is in the $400-$450 range. We went to the local shop so he could put his hands on a few guns, and he really took a liking to the Ruger SR pistols.
Anyone have experience with both the SR-40 and SR-9 full sizes? Any preferences towards one vs the other? Personally, I don't care and would opt for whichever caliber that I felt more comfortable with. He doesn't have a ton of handgun experience, but probably wouldn't have trouble managing a .40 vs a 9mm. I'm just looking for some opinions from people who have experience with both of these guns.
