    I have an SR45. I like it a lot. A little large but a great house gun.

    My SR45 is my house gun. The most controllable .45 I've ever owned. Eleven rounds at my disposal. Wonderful trigger. One hundred percent reliable. And I got a great price on it.
    What's not to like?

    I purchased it at my LGS in Columbus, Ohio.
    And, if memory serves, I bought it three years ago.

    Go for it!
    I spent more than that and I still think I got a helluva deal. It's a hugely underrated handgun.
    A lot of people, myself included, don't like the magazine safety. It's easily removable, which I did.
    The loaded chamber indicator is a bit heavy-handed, but it's not big deal and doesn't bother me. I think the ergonomics are fantastic for my hand. The grip angle, stippling texture and size all work for me. I've owned over a dozen .45's and it's one of my all-time favorites.

    I like the SR45. I've never shot one but I've handled one and it felt good in the hands, but I would never consider buying one even for a very low price unless they made a "pro " version without the thumb safety and the magazine disconnect safety like they do with some of their other striker fired guns.

    Still thinking about a SR45 eh? Yeah there’s a lot of unnecessary “bells & whistles” to the SR series for sure. You don’t have to engage the manual external safety & the mag disconnect safety is easily removed when taking the striker out of the slide. Another option I have in .45acp is my S&W M&P 45/fs. It’s about the same size as a SR45 with no external safety. It cost about $130 more than my SR9, has a slicker texture to the grip, & I changed out the crappy stock trigger for an aluminum Apex trigger. If I had to choose between the M&P & a SR, I’d go with the SR. That said the M&P 2.0 versions have a more aggressive texture on the handle & supposedly better triggers. I’d get a SR45 myself if I didn’t have three .45’s already...

    Ruger should have made the SR45C years ago!

    The SR series flies under the radar

    Overlooked and under appreciate

    Shoot my SR9 in competition and do well with it ... Just shoot it better than any other striker gun I own

    I like the SR45, it has been a good firearm for me. Defiantly recommend it. But I also liked the older Ruger P Series pistols also. I still have a P89, P90 and P95.
