It is good to have a lot of vacation and be able to go to the range on a Monday to avoid the weekend crowd! This was my first opportunity to shoot this 9 mm. I had intended to take some pictures of the targets, but left them at the range. I doubt if they will frame them. I started with 100 of the Winchester white box 115 grain FMJ. I also fired 50 9mm luger subsonic, 147 grain lead round nose flat point factory loads. Last was 115 grain FMJ re-loads. I noticed in the manual that the gun is in safety when the mag is removed. However it would dry fire, so I inserted a mag, loaded a round into the chamber and removed the mag. The gun would not fire. Not sure why it will dry fire empty without the mag, or if it will never fire with a round chambered and no mag, but it did not this time. The range is not that well lit (I know, what a surprise) and the three white dot sights did not stand out. Since this is a carry gun, and any use carrying or in home defense will probably be at night, I will probably help out these 60 year old eyes with an investment for some tritium sights. However since the gun is new enough that there is not a lot of third party eqipment available, and it is $119 from Ruger, I may try to get Santa Clause to bring them. I was happy with the trigger pull. Once the trigger safety is taken up to the trigger, the rest of the pull is consistant and repeatable. The first magazine was interesting. The gun jammed without firing about half of the first ten factory loaded rounds. Each time I would drop the mag, rack the slide and eject the round, reinsert the mag and successfully fire. After the first magazine, it digested all the rest of the rounds without problem. I have no clue where that came from. The gun seemed to be firing left, though that could have been me. I made a small adjustment to the sight, and it corrected some. Next time I will remember my own screwdriver so the guy I borrowed one from can leave when he wants without disappointing me! That way I can continue to adjust until I think I have it right. The pistol did seem to be more accurate with the 147 grain ammo. All in all I am satisfied with it, and assume the craftsman will improve, and the accuracy will get better. More likely the craftsman then the tool!
