This is not a should I buy thread, just my thoughts. I went back to the gun shop today and held the SR9 again. I love the way this gun feels in my hand. The thing I can't get past is I have had it in my mind that my next gun was going to higher end supposedly more accurate toy and the SR9 is a nice middle of the road gun. Don't get me wrong I believe it is a well built weapon. I may end up with the SR9 after all it's relatively inexpensive compared to the other toys I am considering.
I don't know much about them. They look pretty neat though which is the totally wrong reason to want a gun but I am guilty of impulse gun shopping..lol I hear they shoot pretty good but if your are looking for a range gun that is going to be a tack driver then you might want to save your money a little longer. If you do end up with it please post a range report. There is not a lot of info on these guns compared to some others.
That is exactly what I mean. It is not the tack driver I want but I can't get this gun out of my head. I need to find a range that rents one and try it first hand. Nice thing is at around $425-450 it is cheap enough it would not set me back that much. The tack driver would just have to wait a few more months. Have you ever just wanted something and not been able to find a reason to justify it. I would not carry this gun and it probably would not even be my go to home defense weapon. Thing is I still want it.
You are talking to a guy that has several guns and had many more than I just had to have. I got a a Ruger Redhawk 44 mag with a scope on it when in the store looking for a shotgun to use got HD. But it is just....well..I think we've been here before
In my experience, Rugers have been very accurate. I have owned the P90 and found it to be every bit as accurate as anything but a highly customized 1911. My GP100 is capable of very tight groups. My daughters Blackhawk is equally accurate. So I am not sure that you are short changing yourself on the accuracy department if you buy a Ruger.
