I haven't fired one, but I do have one for sale in my shop. My intial impression is finally, Ruger has come out with a semi-auto that is not all blocky&clumsy looking! Gun looks very graceful and it is very un-Rugerlike with it's slim lines. On the other hand, currently S&W is offering a $50.00 rebate Plus two Magazines to anyone who purchases a new Sigma or M&P handgun. This offer is good thru 4/30/08.
