Default New Ruger Pistol

So while visiting a few shops this afternoon so my son could shop AR-15s, I ended up bringing home a Ruger SR9E for myself. He's still looking for an AR.

Here is the new 9E with my P95.

Congrats on the new pistol. Please do get back to us with a range report, once you've had the opportunity to put some rounds down range.

I took it to the range today to give it a good test for function:

I first ran 15 rounds of 124 gr. JHP - no problem.
Next up, 5 rounds of 147 gr. Remington FMJ ammo with a sort of flat nose.
I followed that with 5 rounds of 124 Blazer aluminum cased ammo.
Last of the bunch was 5 rounds of 115 gr. FMJ remanufactured ammo from Freedom Munitions.

I continued the 5-5-5 rotation until I hit a total round count of 150. In a few mags I mixed types of ammo.

The gun worked flawlessly and seems quite accurate. My son shot a few of the mags and was equally impressed.

I did all of this shooting in under an hour on a very hot day. I like how the gun fits my hand and shoots. I was quite pleased that it ate 4 types of ammo without a hitch. Time to go break it down, inspect it and wipe it off for next time.

Good to hear that it worked well and was accurate. I had seen a review of one, where the bore of the barrel was actually oversized (.358) diameter and was not grouping well with most loads. I know this is what Ruger is using as there kind of entry model right now, but don't find it a good excuse for an out of spec barrel. Sounds like you got a good one.
