    Thanks for the compliments, all...best I could do with my little Kodak digital and no photography composition experience at all.

    Crossbreed Supertuck. I did a little write-up on it in the holsters section, and will soon be doing another on carrying the SR9 in the Crossbreed.

    I had to make a slight adjustment to the holster, cutting away some kydex to allow my middle finger better purchase on the bottom of the trigger guard as I acquire my grip.

    Around the time I was buying mine, I heard complaints about gritty trigger pulls, but I imagine the majority of those accounts were from people who were dryfiring the gun without a mag in the gun, and with the mag disconnect still installed.

    My trigger pull was smooth ever since I got it. Bear in mind that I was spoiled from a 1911 trigger, so a striker-fired trigger was fairly new to me.

    There was more take up than I was used to, and the break was fairly heavy. Also, the reset was longer than I was accustomed to as well.

    However, the break, though heavy, was crisp for me, and the trigger has lightened with use. Also, though the reset is long, it is very positive and not spongy at all.

    From what I've heard, and seen, you can do the $0.25 Glock trigger job for the SR9, as the trigger assembly is nearly identical in design. Ruger gives the parts different names, but you could take the trigger internals from a SR9, mix them with a Glock's trigger parts, and have trouble sorting the bits after.

    Though polishing the internals manually may help, I think polishing them through use and rounds down range is a lot more fun...but a wee bit more than 25 cents

    You are certainly well armed in my opinion, you might want to look at getting an LCP as a bug and a summer time carry piece. That would be a cool duo IMHO.

    I am not crazy about the .380 as a caliber in general. But I agree that would be a cool duo!
