Default Sr45

I've gone .45acp crazy lately and have been eyeing several makes and models in this caliber. I have been wanting to add a ruger to my collection but haven't decided which one. If you have this gun please give your overall impressions of it. Likes, dislikes, problems. My local gun shop has these on sale all month for $429.

I have a 1911 and an SR45. I would tale the Sr45 over the 1911. I find the SR easier to shoot, more reliable (less misfeeds), takes whatever i put in it, including hand loads and very easy to take down and clean.
I also have the SR9 and the SR22, I like the entire line and have had no issue with any of them. I am guessing a 500-1000+ rounds through all of them so far.

No personal experience, but I've hear excellent things. When you say "this month," do you mean July? If so, you better get a move on bud!

Sorry I meant all of august. Sportsman den has had these on sale a lot lately. Makes me think they're not big sellers. I figure if I buy it and don't like it I could sell it for not that much of a lost since its only $429. There is just not alot of real shooter reviews of this gun online. I have saved enough to buy this already but was holding out for something else so who knows what I will leave the gun shop with, lol.

How's it feel in your hand? Do you like its ergos? I've heard good things about every member of the SR series, in terms of function and reliability.

Felt pretty good when I handled one a few months ago. I guess I could be the first to own one in my circle. Plus I hear great things about ruger customer service. Like I said who knows what I will leave with. The sr45 just seems like a lot of gun for the money and that's always a good feeling to have about a gun.
