    I just bought a new Ruger SR40.What do you all think? Give me the good and the bad. I really like it myself, but I've only shot about 20 rnds. out of it so far.

    SR40? Probably a good gun. I hope it serves you well.

    But I still can't see it from here...

    I have many guns but since I got my SR9c, I have not carried anything else. To me, the best feeling best shooting handgun I own. Put over 1500 rounds through it with no issues. The SR40 is the same gun just a little more muzzle flip.

    The SR40 should be a good gun but I haven't fired one yet so can't say first hand.

    My son in law and I were comparing his SR9 and my Glock 23 and both are pretty darn good. No reason to expect the SR40 wouldn't be good, as most Rugers are.

    I also own an SR9 and I have put several thousand rounds through it without a single huccup... I have run all kinds of ammo through it and while I have seen variation in accuracy, the darn thing runs better than I could have ever expected...

    I never really cared for rugers handguns until I got my lc9. I thought the sr9 and the sr40 felt sloppy almost like a HiPoint. (Not starting crap here ruger lovers) with that being said, my lc9 has performed flawlessly after 500 rounds and feels great. Congrats on the new gun, even though I don't love them, they are reliable as all get out

    How does it perform? Im not familiar with the ruger SR series.. I used to have a P89 back in 1999, it worked just fine. I eventually traded for a G23c, thus the love for glock started.. I also have a ruger 10/22 that ive had since i was 11 and im 33 now, i love that .22!! There are 2 things "among others" that take me back to my childhood...Ruger 10/22 and old timer knives

    It shoots really well. Very little felt recoil and smooth. Of course I haven't shot it enough to get used to it yet. 4" group at about 90 feet. Probably won't shoot it much until after archery season as I hunt right behind my house. I also have a 10/22. 1- 50 round magazine and 2-30s.Along with my markII-22/45 and 4-10 round magazines we have a blast.
