I really liked the little Ruger SR9c, but it just wasn't my style. I'm just not a polymer frame guy. Steel just seems right in my hands. So I sold it this morning. While I was at the shop doing the transfer, I looked at a basic GI Rock Island and bought it. I'm looking forward to shooting it and putting some miles on it. Now, my only other experience with RIA was with a Tactical model I bought a couple of years back. It just wouldn't feed and I didn't feel confident with it. I tried different mags and all the usual stuff, but nothing worked. So I dropped it like a hot rock. However, it seems that everyone that has one really likes it, so I concluded I had gotten a lemon. I figure any manufacturer can put out a bad gun once in a while. So, December 3rd, I'll bail it out of CA gun jail and see if it's going to be a keeper.
