    SR9C range report (Photo Intensive)

    Ok everyone first time to shot my new Ruger SR9C so here is what i came up with. First off Make sure you clean and oil your gun right out of the box. That is a must on these gun. Reason why is a had a ton of shell not ejecting out right. Out of my first 20 rounds throw it i had more then half of them not ejecting out all the way or something. We not working right. Also had a few problem with it not loading right. Which in my eyes in a big problem. I had more problems with these gun firing then i did with my 380. Im pretty sure it had to do with it being so dry. And new. It seam like the more i shot it the better it got. So for my review out of the box shooting i gave it a 1 out of ten just because if i had never shot these and i got into a shooting battle with someone i more then like could have lost my life for gun not working correctly. So now that this is cleared up let get to the shooting. So here is the first 20 rounds. I stink at target shooting lol. As i can see. But it was not too bad this was from 15ft away. Also i shot a total of 80rounds throw the gun. So let me know what you think.

    Next is the real test. Gun passed the real test. For sure. These is for accuracy these was from 10ft away

    Next is from 20ft away
    I love my first shot at 20ft. Dead as a door nail.

    will cont....

    Unfortunately the SR's are not all straight out. Of the box shooters.

    No issues with the my SR9C. I love it.

    You need to give it a good cleaning. Especially the striker channel, some are packed with factory grease which can contribute to light strikes and other issues.

    Btw I cleaned mine when I first got it, loaded the mags fully and let them sit about 4-5 days to break in the springs. No FTF's, FTE's with about 1500 assorted rounds. Winchester (WB, SXZ HP), Fed AE, Hornady (Critical Duty, Critical Defense, Zombie max), PMC, Hertzers, Freedom Ammo reloads, Tula BrassMax, Tula steel case.
    The only ammo I stay away from is +P+.

    The more you shoot, the better it gets.

    Like sammeow said, clean the striker channel and the striker assembly. I'm not sure why they pack the thing with grease, but it will cause malfunctions if it isn't cleaned out. There is a very helpful video on youtube that explains the process of removing the striker assembly for cleaning.

    Well the main problem was ejecting problems. I did not have one problem with primer strikes

    Many hundreds of rounds fired out of my SR9c. No FTF, no FTE. Zero problems. Great carry gun. Very accurate.

    SR9C range report

    I just could not believe from 20ft i nail the guy in the head first shot. That is sweet it would have taken me forever with my 380 at 20 ft to do that.

    Love my Ruger SR40C. They should have a WARNING printed on their gun case. Clean Firearm before Shooting. We like to slop a lot of grease on them !

    Lol. Well after talking to my brother. He thinks it might be the ammo i had. Because i had 20 rounds of ammo i from the 50 i bought when i bought the buy. And i shot them first then i then bought 100 more rounds and did not have anymore problems. It did not dawn on me about the ammo so im pretty sure it was the ammo that was the problem not the gun.

    I have the ST40C what few misfires I had at the beginning. Just disappeared. Between the gun breaking in and me, getting grip and trigger squeeze right helped. Whenever a friend asks about a good gun to carry for SD (newbies). I suggest either the SR9C or the Shield 9
