Ruger SR9 Official Website with specs
Well... I put 150 rounds through the Ruger SR9 this evening. Wow! What a fun gun. It was more accurate than the shooter was. My first few shots missed the mark completely. Quickly though I got considerably better till I was hitting my bullseye completely from 15' away. I even pushed it out to 20' and was still hitting the mark. Then I picked up the pace and was rapid firing and still stacking the hits one on top of the other.
PROS: Nice weight and grip. Good sights. Ambidextrous magazine and saftey release.
CONS: Bring a friend with you to help load the magazine. Jesus... it took me forever to get that thing loosened up to put 17 rounds in it. I had to use both my right hand on the included speed loader, and my left hand to push the front of the bullet down. Hollow points seemed to load much easier though... weird.
I bought a Galco Quick Slide Belt holster (there aren't any holsters out yet specifically for this gun yet, but it will fit any Glock 17-21 holster) and wore it out to the mall this evening with the wife. She never noticed, she hates it when I carry so I've just decided to not tell her. Win Win situation if you ask me. This gun seemed a little long to carry with the style jacket I was wearing, but I looked in all the mirrors in the mall and couldn't make out the shape or the barrel poking out from the bottom of the jacket. I either need a slightly longer jacket or a slightly smaller gun.
Very enjoyable experience overall... and a very nice gun. When I left my post at the range you could almost make out my foot prints there were so many spent 9mm shells... lol.
The addiction is getting worse...
