Probably you are pretty close to the mark there.

I carry my 9E daily, I live in the mountains and have a lot of interactions with large predators, I had a problem with a bear earlier this week and had to shoot the bear, the 9E did the job nicely.


But dude, you didn't use a .454 or .475!! Don't you know that any less of a firearm has zero effect on a bear whatsoever? Least that's what the gun rags say.

Having spent many years in bush Alaska I can vouch for the fact that anything short of an RPG feels too small if you face one of the larger type bruins. A good polar bear hide can run ten square, that's ten feet across from left paw to right paw and the same from nose to base of the tail. A Kodiak is somewhat larger. Take a look at some of these Alaskan denizens, they are unusually large for their breed but there's more like 'em out there.

Unless you know an FFL that you can work with and will accept guns for you. I try to always have one or two alternatives to ship guns to. The last one, we've gotten to be very good friends. Win/Win.

There is that. I've done it a couple times. :)

I just checked the Ruger web page and the SR guns are back, a good idea in my opinion. The Glock 19X and the Model 45, are "pale" examples of the Ruger SR series.

Well, I'm happy to see they are back and hope they become a regular item not exclusive to a particular distributor again. I have a suspicion that Ruger realizes that the market just isn't going to embrace the RAP, even as a second tier (meaning, not Glock/M&P/XD) offering. On the other hand, the SR's always sold really well around here and Ruger has gotten most of the bugs out of them.

A lot of people really hated that popup chambered round thingie. Totally useless complication. Which is a major reason why I and other people bought the 9e instead of the standard SR9. Don't know if they ditched that on the distributor guns, but they should if they haven't.

I agree, it's useless.

All Ruger guns are sold through distributors. Ruger will cut production on certain guns if distributor orders aren't enough to keep the lines running. They've done so in the past with the Ruger Redhawk and a few other models. When demand increases they will make another run or two or more. I suspect that's what happened with the SR series, just a momentary suspension of production.
