Default Finally!

Well I finally got to shoot my SR9.


I put 250 round through her, here are some targets.
Now before you guys start making fun of me let me just say the only other time I have shot hand guns was with my friend and his 6 guns outdoors shooting milk jugs and it was my first time ever shooting this gun or any Ruger for that matter.

Around 7 yards.

Pretty consistent shooting you got there. With a little bit of practice you are going to be putting all those rounds deep in the red.

I wouldn't short change your ability at all. If this was the first time at an indoor range, I would have NO problem giving you a line of fire and putting you behind some sandbags inside my perimeter when the Space Zombies come.

How was the function? Any problems? How did the weapon perform? Was it up to your expectations?

Around 12 yards.

She ran good, I had a stove pipe or two but I think that was me not the gun, I was happy with how it performed.

Pretty good shooting for rapid fire, at 30 feet with a new gun. Hell, I can barely SEE 30 feet.

I've seen this with other guns. Let me ask you this - did you clean the gun before you shot it? A lot of guys think it's all right to take the gun out of the box and blast away. It's not. New guns are packed with grease, which is for preventing corrosion, NOT shooting. Heavy grease can cause malfunctions.

All guns should be cleaned, thoroughly, before shooting. It's shocking to me how many people do not do this.

I'll probably end up buying a SR9. I only have one other 9mm (Walther PPS) and about 2,000 rounds of 9mm brass. The SR9 is slim and small, the way a 9mm should be - and unlike the PPS, it's high cap. And it feels great in my hand.

Yes I cleand the gun first.

I think it stove piped because of a loose grip on a few shoots.

I am happy with the gun and like the way it shoots!

Default great gun

Ive had my SR9 for about ayear now, love it I did have to send it back to ruger in dec. for a sticky mag relace button, works fine now, nocharge from ruger great service. IF you polish the feed ramp it should clear up any feed problems.

I got in trouble on a Bersa forum for recommending a ramp polish. It seems some pistols have a ramp which is hardened on the surface; if you polish it, you can wear through the hardening, and ruin the gun!

That forum no longer permits home gun smithing posts.

Better make sure polishing is safe for your gun.
