    I purchased the SR40 in January. I had a Taurus PT99 before. My 9mm was a sweet shooting gun, but a little large for ccw. I researched a lot of pistols before making my choice. Read a lot on the heavy duty spring that the sr40 uses to absorb the kick of the 40. This really impacted my decision. The Ruger is highly rated as one of, if not the smoothest shooting 40 on the market. I have to agree with them. This pistol doesn’t kick as bad as my brother’s SR9. Accurate right out of the box. I paired it with a Blackhawk Serpa holster, and I couldn’t be happier. I’m sure there are a lot of people that think differently about it, but I would put the Ruger SR40 up against any pistol out there. It’s very easy to control. The trigger reset is fantastic. And for me, it’s the perfect sized handgun. I’ve owned numerous guns in my life, and this one has to be at the top of the list. Try one and you will not be disappointed.

    Purchased the all black SR40 in February, 2015. I call it ‘Darth Ruger.’ I love this thing. It fits in my hand so well it becomes an extension of my hand. Went to an indoor range and started pushing some Perfecta 40 S&W rounds through. These rounds are made in Italy but I believe it’s a Russian owned operation. Results were ‘acceptable.” Switched to Federal 40 S&W 180gr Aluminum rounds and the results were simply outstanding; those little guys went exactly where I told them to go. The recoil is virtually negligible; during rapid fire I experienced no loss of control. If you are in the market for a home/personal defense (or offense) I truly recommend that you give consideration to the Ruger SR40.
