One thing I know for certain, Ruger is great for building up peoples wants for a firearm prior to it's actual release. Not sure if it started before the P-85 release, but I experienced it then!
On to the Sr45, although I swore nothing other than a 10MM would be in future purchases, this one changes that idea. When I find one, I will purchase it. I'm going to go out on a limb, and say it might just be the best 45 ACP on the market. If you've never had the opportunity to shoot one of the SR series, you are missing out. In the hand, feels like a 1911. Points like a 1911. 10 round capacity. Design and durability of a Glock. What more could you ask for?
Only downside is mag cost. They are $40!
If guns kill people, then, I can blame my pencil on my spelling!
