Opinions on SR-40 for 1st time buyer
Okay I want to be straight up here next week I'll be visiting my favorite gun dealer, I've purchased many shotguns & rifles from him over the years but this is my first time buying a handgun. I have a retired ranger who told me to look at the S&W M&P-40, I have a co-worker who owns and swears by the Springfield XD-40 and today after talking to the gun dealer he recommended I consider the Ruger SR-40, see why I'm just a bit confused! To make things interesting the prices I got for these make me wonder a bit also, the M&P-40, 500.00 the XD-40 470.00, but the SR-40 399.00 . The first 2 just a few dollars apart but the Ruger is considerably less. I need to know from you guys here on the Ruger site if there's anything I should be aware of as far as problems with function and I do have big hands will this be an issue not only with the Ruger but any of the other 2?? Also I know that the M&P and the XD have lifetime warranty with the M&P inc. shipping both ways when warranty work is needed does Ruger back the SR similarly. Thanks for your help and please don't hold back if you have opinions on any of the 3 I've mentioned.
