This is my first semi-automatic pistol i have owned, purchased this SR40 for home protection and love it so far. I read a few reviews that bashed the trigger and ejection problems, i do not plan to shoot this gun in compatition so the trigger pull was fine for me. As for ejection problems, i purchased a box of Winchester 180 grain FMJ and on a visit to my Mother who lives in the boonies fired two clips thru it before she came out and said that was enough. I had no problems with this ammo, i would just stick to what works but it is a little expensive to just blow holes in a paper target. Can someone suggest another manufactuer that is not so pricey but will serve my purpose. I also purchased a box of Winchester 165 grain Elite PDX1 Defender for home defence, have not fired any of these, way to expensive to plink with.
