Baby UpLULA, got an extra mag, & my 4 mags from grab-a-gun came in. As expected the UpLULA works great!

My FIRST Ruger pistol, a new Ruger-57.. That's the one introduced this year and chambered for the little 5.7x28mm.
146648


It simply fascinated me, after ignoring the FNH pistol for decades because it's so ugly.. Clear advantages to this caliber include almost-no recoil, hence making one's subsequent shots more accurate, and high magazine capacity.. Disadvantages include high ammo cost--yes, my first 50box of 27g. ammo did cost $100!--but ammo is available including the mostly-out-of-stock Speer 40g. GoldDot at the auction sites.. The grip is a bit long front-to-back, but it's also narrow, and it feels plenty OK in my mediumish hands.. Trigger pull is long, even the active portion, but it's smooth, and the break is clean.. I have some Federal American Eagle 40g. FMJ practice rounds on the way plus a couple boxes of the expensive FNH 40g. 'Sporting' ammo.

Got it to the range yesterday where I found it easy to shoot, VERY low in recoil, 100% reliable, more accurate than any of the many Glock and S&W 'conventional' semiauto pistols I've had over the decades, and, thankfully, not nearly as loud as the 357SIGs I've had..


We'll see how this goes. :)

Hey thanks for the review on the Ruger 57...I've been considering one myself. Was originally looking at the FN 57 just to go along with my FNX45 and FN509 tactical...but you're right, the FN 57 does look a bit wonky.

I'm just waiting for Ruger to release one with a threaded barrel...

Just came home with a Ruger SST Bisley .45 Convertible 5 1/2" to replace all the .45LC's I've sold in the last year, including my Redhawk convertible, 7 1/2" Blackhawk, and consecutive SN Bisley .45 convertible Twins. I just couldn't leave all that .45LC ammo lying around.

500 rounds of AE 100 grain .327 Fed Mag. Right place right time. Only had a box left.

Perhaps in the coming 48 hours I should purchase reloading equipment.

Gun show in my town this weekend. Got grips for my Pietta 1851 Navy BP revolver, and a set of Hogue rosewood finger groove GP100 grips, $30 for both, out the door.
