    I'm looking for my first concealed weapon. This was one of my favorites and in my price range. Thoughts? I love my other Ruger firearms (10/22, 22-45, and M77s) and this seemed to fit the mold. Anyone know of future caliber offerings? Thanks!

    If you can't get it done with 9mm +P " or " 9mm +P+ maybe it don't need done.
    I'd buy that gun if I needed another one
    Look at the SR9c

    The SR9 had recalls on them, It seems as if they just rushed through manufacturing. I think there may be a .40 also.

    it had the same recall as the tacoma... sounds like the gun for u...

    neways the recall isn't that big of a deal because they fixed it and now it has the same trigger technology as a glock

    i just bought a p95...
    sr9 looked awesome i just got a better deal on p95 so i went with it

    I like ruger (i have a MKIII 22/45) but I went with a XD9. I got the XD cheaper than the SR9 was.

    I have an SR9 and I have been really happy with it. I got it when they first came out and then sent it back for the recall, but I like the new trigger better anyway. You don't have to let the trigger out as far after the first shot with the new one and you can feel it click as you let it out after a shot to know how far it has to go.

    The gun shoots very good and I got it because I wanted a CCW and I wanted something with a safety switch. I only carried it a few times though b/c it is too big to carry IWB for me. Definitely a great gun for the money though.

    I ended up getting the gun I really wanted a year or so later (Kimber UCII .45), but didn't want to spend that much when I bought the SR9.

    If you really want to carry it often I would recommend the ruger LCP. That is what I want now b/c even though the UCII is smaller than the SR9, I still don't carry it as much as I would the LCP because you can put it in any pocket.

    They just put a Glock trigger in it because if dropped just right the trigger mass would allow it to go off
    the Glock type trigger will prevent that

    Recall had nothing to do with the gun functionality - it is a great gun

    will do. i was gonna get one last year (fullsize model) but ended up buying a FiveseveN and wiped out my "fun money". i checked one out at the local dealer and i have to say that the grip is excellent, for me at least. balance felt good as well (unloaded). fit and finish on the example i looked at was also excellent. one of the big draws for me is the high capacity and light weight...prolly why i ended up with a 5.7 :) i may be a bit biased...i like Ruger firearms.
