    I took my new SR9 out to the range today and put 300 rounds through it. Whatever glitches they may have had in early production are ironed out, (in my opinion.) Everything I ran through it was flawless. It was one of the smoothest, most accurate service style 9mm I have ever fired straight from the box. For $399 you can't go wrong. Here is a full magazine (17 rounds) at 15 yards!!!

    Nice shooting.

    I'm very happy with my 2 SR9C and SR40C.

    I thought about getting the full size SR9 but there's so little difference I bought the SR40C instead.:)


    Recently a couple ladies (new handgun shooters) shot my SR9C. They like it. One is getting one for a carry pistol.

    I told myself I would wait some time before getting one so any "issues" could be ironed out. Looks like it may be time. I also told myself, and posted, that I don't "need" anymore guns. But I do want one.

    I was the same way. I read, talked to the owner of the local gun shop, and read some more. The time is right to get one. I firmly believe the newest ones are good to go. In fact, after shooting it a few times now, I am starting to like it better than the 9's I have owned for a while. I plan on getting another one or a SR9c to go with it. This gun rocks. (Especially after I removed the mag disconnect safety.)

    The few times I shot my cousins sr9 the first thing I said was that it was the softest shooting 9mm I've ever shot. Really, really smooth, soft shooter(not that 9mm is recoil heavy), almost 22ish.

    After Great deal of research I was set on purchasing an SR9c for concealed carry. While atagun show a month ago aftersearching for on for the past six months I came across a table that had both the SR9 and the SR9c. There was so little difference in size between the two that I went with the full size due my desire for increased accuracy shooting targets on the range. Of course I could not find ammo to go shoot the new gun at the range so I bought A-Zoom snap caps and dry fired for the month while getting use to the trigger squeeze. While waiting to find some 9mm ammo I did some more reseach on thr Ghost Ultimate trigger which is supposed to drop the trigger pull a bit and decrease grity trigger pull. So, I went ahead and ordered it and installed it in my new SR9 before ever shooting one round. Again I was in the waiting game for ammo so I continued to dry fire with my snap caps. Finally after over a month I found some ammo and headed to the range with tool to adjust sights if necessary. I used the shoot-n-c targets and put it out at 30 feet. I squeezed off a box of 50 rounds and litterally shot out the bulls eye with a 1.5 inch group and pulled a couple to the right about three inches. I was absolutely elated that I did not have to make any site adjustments whatsoever. I was a pistol expert
    in the Marine Corps qualifying several times over 27 years with a 1911 .45 and Barreta 9mm, but never seemed to shoot as well as I did with this SR9. Bottom line is that I selected a winner based on good reseach.

    I have a SR9C that has been flawless. It has become my favorite CCW. I think the SR Series is the best gun going for the money and is better than many pistols that cost a lot more. I would not mind having one of the FDE colored SR9 pistols out now.

    The LGS is getting in a SR45. If it's a C model I'll probably add it to the 9mm and 40S&W.:)
