    Ruger SR9

    Hey guys, what do you all think of the new Ruger SR9. I don't believe it is actually available yet, but I saw a little clip about it in my National Rifleman. I am very pleased with the 2 Ruger pistols I own (P89, P345). I am interested to see how these work out.

    There have been a few people on THR who report that they have purchased and fired them... They had nothing terribly bad, nor anything exceptional to say about them.

    It is simply another $400-$500 option in the Glock, XD, M&P, 24/7, etc... lineup.

    They are at your local ruger dealer. So many nice guns and only so much room in my safe.

    I have an SR9. I have taken it to the range, it shoots nice and it feels nice. I like the fact that it has 17/1 rounds. The bad thing is being a new gun it is hard to find a holster so I can carry it!! I did hear that it is the same as a Glock 17. When I got it at the gun show I stopped at the holster booth and sure enough it fit a Glock 17 holster (IWB). I have been waiting for the holster makers to get up to speed with the new guns but it is not happening....
    When I retire I am going to move up North and drive slow!!

  6. I'm kind of excited as it has an ambidextrous safety (I shoot lefty) which most other striker-fired pistols don't have. I know, I know...supposedly they aren't necessary, but I'm sort of an old fashioned safety kind of guy. It also sounds like it's pretty thin, too.

    I read the same article, sounds like it will be a top seller.

    The SR9 is a great gun and shoots nice. My buddy has one. It is very comfortable to shoot, and accurate. The only draw back in my opinion for ccw is the grip is a little long. Would be nice to see shorter overall version for CCW...It is a new gun, so maybe we'll see a compact version in the future.

    Rugers SR9

    Hello All,

    Im a new member here and thought that I might be able to make some what of an inteligent reply on this topic.

    I just recently finished the coarse required for my CPL in the Upper Pennisula of Michigan and am waiting on the final approval.

    In reguards to the new Ruger SR9 I purchased one about 3 months ago and so far am fairly happy with its performance.
    At 7 yards I am able to hold a good tight group and at 15 yards I am able to easily hold a group that can be covered by a closed fist.

    I love the fit in my hand and it feels secure even when firing from a single grip.

    One of the things I dont care for however is the sights. I feel the sights allow for to much play in your sight picture. I would have liked to see them tighted the back sights up a little and make the front sight a little smaller. Though that is just my opinion .. I feel that there is just a little to much play in them ..

    Another concern I had is this is the first pistol I have ever purchased that was not dead straight out of the box. My Rear sight was not centered on the gun I had to right away adjust the sight to make it shoot even half accuratly.. then after closer inspection at the range. I found the front sight was also just a touch of center obviously causing the weapon to fire off a touch ..

    That being said I think the pistol is a very good peice and I do plan to replace the sights. Other than that however I have so far put roughly 2000 rounds though it and have yet to have a malfunction of any kind.

    Looking forward to being an active member here.

    Talk to you soon.

    Welcome to the forum and thanks for the input. I just hope it is as good as my other Rugers.

  11. Finally had a chance to see and handle an SR9 at a gun show today. It was pretty nice. Very slim and pointed nicely. The only thing I didn't like was the way the plastic grips felt. They were almost too slim. I'd be afraid if I shot one, it might twist in my hand a little. Other than that, it seemed like a well made gun. It looked pretty good, too. I debated getting it for awhile, but ended up getting an FNP-40 for my "nightstand gun."
