Recently acquired my pistol permit and after much reviewing got myself an SR9. One week later, yesterday, was able to take it to the range. Fired approximately 100 rounds, 3 different types of ammo, no hiccups and basically hit where I aimed. Totally pleased. Just wanted to share. Thanks

Welcome to the Forum!

Your review is very close to that of the silent majority of SR9 owners.

Now stand back, and wait for the reports of those who would tell you your gun will self-destruct, tomorrow.:D

Keep on shooting that SR9!

WAYNO.

Cool i am glad you like your pistol and that it has proved so reliab;e on your trip to the range. It is also very easy to take down and clean. The SR9 is a good gun in my experiance too.

Welcome and congrats on your SR9, it is a nice pistol even though some are having problems, mine works great and both my daughter and I enjoy shooting it. Happy shooting, Dusterman :D

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like it is doing what it is supposed to do.

No need to be biased one way or another;just keep shooting,inspecting and reporting-back because many of us own this gun. Have fun.

Last time I was at the range I took two of my buddies with me, one who had never shot a gun before. I took my SR9 and they rented a S&W M&P 9. On their 2nd box of shitty ammo the M&P started to jam up on them. They swapped the gun with a Springfield XD9 and that also would jam on the ammo. Then they swapped that one for a Glock. All the while I kept feeding ammo to my gun for them to keep shooting. Both said they liked shooting my gun more.

Keep her good & oiled. Some of the forum threads around here look like their problems could have been due to improper or insufficient oiling of the barrel, barrel breech and/or rails.

I've had my SR9 for a few months now......nearly 1000 rounds without incident. I'm very happy with it. Makes a nice addition to my growing Ruger collection. (SR9, GP100, 10/22) Plus it's a great value. Picked mine up brand new at a local gun shop here in CT for $369.......I couldn't pass it up.

Welcome to the SR9 club and happy shooting! I've had my SR9 (Black) for 8 months now, don't know how I existed without it...had 1 jam on my first clip and none since, no peening problems,no trigger problems..nada...looking maybe to switch to more visible sights but am using a nice laser sight so not that high a priority...
