    Ruger SR9 sticker

    Just got my new Ruger SR9 and I noticed it came with a small round red colored sticker near the slide on the side of the gun. Does anyone know what this means? Was it possibly at a gun show? Thanks.

    I was once told by a Ruger aficionado/fan that the factory does this to differentiate the type of action (DA/SA w/decocker, DA/SA w/safety lever, or DAO) so the assemblers/packagers can tell what type it is at a glance. I thought he said they used the same color-code on the box label, too.
