Well I have arrived to sing the praises of the SR9!
I've had my SR9 for about 2 years now and don't have any complaints with it. Like you said it is comfortable (different for everyone of course) I like the reversible back strap with the larger side out. It just makes the firearm feel more stable in my hand. I've probably only around a measly 1,500 rounds through her and she's performed flawlessly except for the stove piping of limp wristers. About three months ago I was cleaning my SR9 and noticed some unusual wear on the interior of the slide around where the guide rod goes. about 1mm of metal appeared to have chipped off
. It was taken to Gander Mountain who directly shipped it to Ruger, three weeks later (a bit long I know) I received my SR9 back with a completely new slide. NO CHARGE got to love warranties
Some have complained about a gritty trigger but as others on the interwebs have mentioned I can back up the fact that the trigger smooths out considerable after about 500 rounds down the pipe.
so to sum up
Pro's- Feels good in my hand, got to love buying from Ruger in the good ol' US of A (idk if Berreta is American made?), people with no aiming capability like me enjoy the capability of the 17+1 capacity. Tactical rail if you so choose to employ it (mine is naked and I like her that way
), it has a good weight and over all I've had no problems with the firearm other than the unusual wear on the slide which was completely replaced and payed for by Ruger
Con's- only real con for me is that it took Ruger three weeks to get the firearm back to me, but when they cover the charge I find myself willing to let that go.
The truth will set you free, but first it's going to piss you off.
