    What's the appeal of this new pistol? Just that it's new? I haven't heard much press about it before yesterday.

    SR9 is the first striker-fired pistol from Ruger. I think they are just trying to catch up with the rest of the MFRs. They are only selling 500 now. Only select gun shops have them. It was all "top secret" until yesterday. No one knew what it looked like or even the caliber until it was released.

    Actually they have released 2000 guns. A selected number of retailers are receiving today 4 guns a piece.

    The NEW Ruger SR9â„¢

    Ruger's first striker-fired pistol was designed from the ground up to offer an affordable, slim, comfortable-to-shoot package that provides the features demanded by today's most discriminating pistol shooters, all backed by legendary Ruger reliability.

    Today's centerfire pistols must do many things. Adaptability is the key. With the benefit of over 20 years experience in the centerfire pistol business, Ruger has re-engineered the genre of striker-fired pistols. We're putting all the features you've asked for into one impressive new package - the Ruger SR9. ...More

    Just look at what goes into this exciting new pistol:

    ** Weighs 26.5 oz., in a package of just 5.52" H x 7.55" L x 1.27" W.
    ** Reliable, striker-fired ignition.
    ** Easy, "Semi-Double Action" trigger-pull - 6.5 pounds.
    ** 17+1 Capacity. (Note: 17-round magazines are not available in all states and locales; 10-round magazines are available where required to meet state and local regulations limiting magazine capacity.)
    ** Chambered in 9mm Parabellum (9mm x 19).
    ** Short trigger reach.
    ** Unique reversible backstrap (flat or arched) to accommodate grip preferences.
    ** Slim, ergonomic grip features a 17-degree grip angle and three, 22 lpi checkered panels that provide a sure grip without being abrasive.
    ** Patented Ruger camblock helps absorb recoil.
    ** High-visibility 3-dot sight system is click adjustable for elevation and drift adjustable for windage.
    ** Picatinny rail accepts modern sighting devices (lights, lasers, etc.).
    ** Ultra-slim stainless steel slide.
    ** Ambidextrous magazine release.
    ** Ambidextrous 1911-style manual safety.
    ** Internal trigger bar interlock and striker blocker, trigger safety, and magazine disconnect.
    ** Visual and tactile loaded chamber indicator.
    ** Suggested retail price of just $525, including hard case, extra magazine, magazine loader, padlock, and instruction manual.

    Nothing on the market incorporates all of these advanced features!

    Striaght from the horses mouth.

    Ruger has a history of making user hostile pistols. Full of sharp edges and unnecessary safeties. This one looks about the same. Time will tell.

    Looks like a nice pistol, but I don't know...Ruger may be a little late to the party to capture any serious market share.

    I like the feature list, but I'd have to shoot one to know what I really think of the pistol.

    I would like to shoot this as well maybe some of the dealers who have ranges would designate one for rental? That would be nice.

    I doubt they will rent one if they're only getting 4.

    That is what I was thinking, the grip is what really does it.

    I was in the neighborhood of Big Woods Goods today and got to see and hold one of these right out of the FedEx box :D

    First Impressions

    The grip is remarkably slim considering the 17 round double stack mag. It is noticeably thinner than my XD9 and Glock 17

    It point's a lot like a 1911, very easy to get on target quickly. Nice easily visible 3 Dot White sights (Rear is Adjustable)

    Trigger wasn't bad in DA, but I would like to shoot it a few times to see how I liked the trigger.

    Ambi Safety and mag release for the southpaws among us

    All in all a pretty good looking gun and a small enough package where you could easily carry 17+1 9mm in an IWB for CC. After I get a chance to shoot one, I may just pick one up.

    No Price information yet, as I said they had just pulled them out of the box, and they did not have all the pricing information, but they were kind enough to let me play with it.

    I like the list of features too. I even like the look. I have only shot a couple of Ruger semi- 9mms, however, I was not impressed. To each his own.

    I assume the limited production is just for initial release? Do you think they're testing the waters to see how people like them or just releasing that many to begin with?

    They did the same thing when they released the P-85's twenty years ago. The only difference being they sent some out to gun writers pre-release who wrote rave reviews (I believe the good reviews were justified, I love mine) and built up a feeding frenzy prior to release. I had my FFL at the time and was one of the lucky ones to get ONE right off the bat. I decided to keep it for myself despite offers for twice what I paid for it the first time I shot it at the local range. I still have that p-85 and carry it on a regular basis.

    This thread got me thinking. I no longer own a striker fired pistol. I think I like the triggers better o nmy hammer fired guns, even the on eon my Taurus Mill Pro. That one had a long first pull, but I fire it from reset after that, so it's no big deal. I got used to it on my first range trip.

    If they make a SR40, and it's magazine compatible with a PC40, it could be a great sidearm/carbine combo.

    Bushhogs, don't you have one in the store? What's your opinion of it?
