    Going Ruger this time.

    Put a down payment on a SR 40 and will pay it out over the next couple of weeks, just really liked the way it felt in my hand today I got the solid black one, pics and a range report when I can pay it out of purgatory.
    If it needs to be done, do it.

    I can't stand the look of the 2 tone ruger IMO the black one looks so much better.

    I have a SR9c and love it. For years it was my EDC. It now sees more duty with its extended magazine as my HD/Nightstand gun. Having moved to Florida I now EDC a LC9s. I love my SR9c and am sure you'll love your 40!

    A very good feeling and shooting pistol. My only gripe is the large LCI but that is my opinion. Hope you enjoy it!

    I'm not crazy about it but they don't make a .40E at this time,and I can ignore it.

    I like the feel and value of the Ruger SR's. If they ever release a model without an external safety and mag disconnect I'll give one a try.

    Well, they WILL ! And I'll tell you when: about ten minutes after you pay for your new pretty and walk to the car with it.

    And I'm very pleased with my own new Ruger, an SP101 snub.

    you guys who have the SR's , how good are the sights ( rugged,easy to adjust, problems with movement) haven't found lots of long term reviews on these pistols other than on the ruger forum

    The SR9 sights look kinda goofy but the larger front and smaller rear are great for shooting. I have shot my sr9c at 40 yards and was hitting a chest size target with little effort.

    I like my Ruger pistols.

    image.jpg

    SR22, SR9c, SR40c, SR45 (only available in two tone for California, no longer on the roster).

    I put over 10,000 rounds through the SR22, sent back to Ruger (for free) and they replaced the barrel, takedown lever, recoil spring and guide rod, extractor and 1 magazine. The magazine would hold back the last round. Ruger has awesome customer service, now I just need to figure out how to get rid of the handgun roster in California.

    They're Novak "style", adjustable front and rear for windage, and rear adjusts for height/elevation. Never had any problems with mine, I put a set of Truglo TFX sights on my SR9c, fiber optics and tritium worth every penny of the $140 I spent on them.
