Picked up my SR9 yesterday

So I picked her up yesterday after my 10 day waiting period (cali) and man im so in love with her for some reason...i took her apart and did a new gun cleaning and lube and ive got to say the trigger is not bad at all I haven't fired it but have been dry firing with dummy rounds...i know it alot lighter than a taurus 24/7 thats for sure...

I was really worried because I kept reading people talking about the new "d" shaped magazine release, and to go with that new version, the magazine release is a lil hard but nothing unmanagable, and the trigger is not bad in my opinion...

Great gun. The trigger is great. Clean the grease out and fire the heck out of it. I love this gun! I know there are better guns but not at this price.

I have a question and I don't mean any disrespect with it. Just wondering why you would opt for a full size SR9 in California when you can only have ten round magazines? Why not the SR9c?

I tought about that, and the "feel" just wasnt there for the 9c, felt to small in my hands, unbalanced, compared to the fs, and the longer barrel, that was just my tougts, but but I fully understand your question...I gave it alot of tought...haha

I got the full size before the compact came out (It was a going away gift from my team that worked for me). I conceal carry it no problem. I thought about the SR9c, but it doesnt feel that much smaller or advantage as a full size.

Also I want to do IDPA with mine, I like the full size for that.

I am from NY and have the same limitations(LEO but need ten rounders for my wife)but sometimes I want something that fills my large hands. Larger firearms are generally easier to shoot and have better sight pictures. For carry, Mostly I go compact or sc, but my full size PX4 Storm or FNP 9 are satisfying also. Mostly I carry an SP101 3" .357 and that is not the easiest to carry due to weight and althought not the biggest, it definitely is not the smallest.
Variety also is nice.

Congats on the SR9 i bought about a month ago and have put 275 rnds through her and she has not had one jam or misfire.she is also very accurate.i recommend using Fiocchi 115 gr FMJ 9MM my SR9 seems to love the Fiocchi brand of ammo.i have been getting some real nice groups of shots using it.good luck.let us know how she does.

I have had my SR9 since May of this year. I have ran in excess of 1000 rounds and she still fires the same as she did after the first 100. I love the trigger, mine has never been gritty as I have heard about.
I had one FTF the other day but it was due to a bad cartridge and not the guns fault. Mine does however favor 115 Grain ammo. I wasn't very accurate with 124 Grain for some reason or another.

How do y'all feel about the magazine disconnect and the possibility of damage if dry-fired without an empty magazine? I would not do that, but for some reason that just bugs the heck outa me. Not so much that it won't fire without a magazine inserted, but that it is possible to actually damage the pistol. If not for that the SR9 would be on my short list.

Took the magazine release out of mine, Bugged me to. I also took it out of the SR40c and my LC9. There are good videos on youtube on how to do this. It is very easy and quick. Good Luck.
