Lately I have been getting into Ruger handguns. (I bought a SP101 & a LCR) I think I am going to give the SR9 a chance. They are only $399 and I have not heard anything bad from the people I know who own one. I went to my local gun shop to handle one today and was pretty impressed. It felt great, the price is right, and surprisingly, (I say surprisingly because of all the negative threads I read about the trigger), the trigger was fantastic. I am going to go back this weekend and buy it...I think. Curious to hear other people's experience.
