    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.

    Well I got it today with a bunch of ammo. Just gotta get some range time in. Will let you know how she does when I get some time. Between family stuff and overtime at work it might be a couple weeks. Changed the back strap around and it feels even better in hand now. Can't wait to shoot it.

    I have the SR40. Love absolutely LOVE the SR platform - you can have the 1911 to me it's overweight overpriced and over saturated on the market

    Yeah the 1911 is def the most overpriced handgun on the market. They can reach thousands of dollars. With that said you can get a good one for under $800 and I do love that platform. For me its the most accurate handgun.

    Congrats on the SR. Be sure to let us know what you think of it after you put some rounds through it.

    The 1911 is a lot more complicated than most of these new guns on the market, the tolerances are tighter and it takes much more time and skill to make.

    Priced an M14 lately? Same deal there...
