Hello Everyone. After reading and doing alot of research on the SR9, I decided to take the plunge and pick one up. I am not disappointed at all with this latest Ruger offering. I have read alot about the magazine misgivings (not being able to load 17 rounds by hand for example) and had no problem whatsoever loading both magazines with 17 rounds, by hand. In fact, I found it cumbersome using the tool Ruger provides for this purpose. As far as trigger response is concerned, it takes a little getting used to, but once you get used to it, I had no problem with it all. It was smooth right out of the box. I took it to the range and put 100 rounds through it on the first day and had no jams, hiccups, nothing, operated flawlessly. As far as accuracy is concerned, at 25 yds. it put all the rounds within a 4 inch circle (My eyes won't let it get much better than that). All in all, I think this is one fine pistol and for me is a keeper.
