Right out of the box it was shooting really low and when I checked the rear sight I found it was cranked all the way down, after playing with it a little I was able to bring it on center.
The SR22 and SR9 are my favorite to shoot. I have a feeling that after I shoot the 45 more it is going to be right up there with the other 2 SRs.
Now that I have my semi autos, I need to work on the Ruger revolvers. Top of the list is the SP101 357 mag 3". Hoping I get lucky like I did with the 45 and find one.
Next gun will be SR45!! Nice compact 45!! I have the SP101 357mag!! Awesome gun, little bite with the 357 round but I love the gun!!

Still looking for one at a"reasonable" price. Have had one on special order through the range/gunstore where I am a member but they havent had any luck either. Just going to have to wait. I am sure you will enjoy the SR45, still happy with mine. I began reloading and it has taken anything I have put in it.

It is so hard to say what is "reasonable" these days. My best guess would be mid to high 400s new (best guess). Used would depend on the condition. I found mine on Gunbroker.com and the timing must have been just right and got it for less than any local stores were asking. Just have to watch the shipping charges and keep in mind it is an auction.

I have no problem with used!! Provided the gun has not been neglected!! With modern ammo!! My guess is the casual gun owner can not wear a quality firearm out!! Read an article on the durability of the LCP 380!! 40,000 rounds was shot before mechanics started to fail!! Average gun owner probably doesn't approach 1000 rounds a year out of a given firearm. So the math suggest a gun should approach 50 years of normal use before real issues become a problem!! Subtract a 100 dollars off the new price for a good quality used gun!! Good news is, the gun should hold the used value for many years to come!!

So we will call 480 the "new price point!! I will hold out until I see 380 or below for the same gun , used, that has a huge chance to be as reliable as brand new!! In fact some would say buying slightly used is better than new for bugs that a brand new gun can have!!

I am interested in one, but would like to shoot it before I buy it. I will continue to monitor it until someone I know buys it, or a store has it on the wall for a rental.
