    I have never been a fan of Ruger but this is a great gun. Much nicer than the older clunky pieces they use to make. Smooth trigger, very accurate 17 round mags. I think he made a good decision and mowed alot of yards to save up $400 for his first hand gun.

    That is Awesome! Congratulations to him for working hard to earn his first handgun! My first handgun was a Ruger P89 and it was a solid shooter. Ruger has come a long way from the P89 to the SR9.

    I've got a couple of Rugers currently, and would like to get one of the old P-Series at some point too. I've got the big brother to the SR9. The P345D is a great gun and I've probably got at least 10,000 rounds down it, and the barrel still looks great, still groups well, and I trust my life to it every night I sleep. Anyway, great gun, and I'm sure it will serve you well.

    It would seem that Ruger was the first handgun for a lot of us.

    Old thread...new post..haha

    It was for me.....a P95. As mentioned above .... It's a little fat but...it's solid! shoots just about any ammo with no hiccups at all..just a very solid inexpensive hand gun you can really trust!!

    Cheers...Tye

    My first pistol was a Ruger MkII Mod 678 (adjustable sights, 6 7/8" barrel) I bought when the first came out and I still have it. My second is a P89dc (best part is, my brother gave it to me :D a couple years ago). Both make me look a lot better at the range than I really am.

    I've had a hard time accepting the proliferation of plastic guns, but I'm sure if I had one, I'd probably enjoy shooting it as well.

    My first pistol was a Taurus PT145. Nice compact package and the 10 round double stack magazine was a nice bonus for a .45ACP pistol. It wasn't very accurate and was damn picky with rounds. Might as well have bought a Hi-Point with that pistol. Disappointing real considering how nice their revolvers are.

    I traded the $&@!ing thing in on a Springfield Armory XDs. It fits the same holster and everyone who did a review on it liked it very much.

    My first pistol at the age of 10 was a Ruger Bearcat. I have the big brother to the SR9, the SR45 10rd 45 ACP.:cool: The SR45 is so slim I am using a leather SR9 holster.
