My week w an SR9
« on: November 10, 2007, 11:19:28 AM »
Been carrying/shooting an SR9 all week. I like it.

Using a Fobus paddle holster for the M&P. Not having any trouble w the action, controls, or mags. A nice trigger is good, but I don't need a nice trigger to do good work. The trigger is fine as is. Easier to load/release mags and a longer safety would be nice, but can live w them as is too.

It's a better pistol for me than the Glock. Feels way better in my hand, and I can shoot it way better one handed w either hand (or both hands) than my Glock. Sometimes a better grip trumps a better trigger? I doubt the FBI/DEA/USMS/NYPD/GSG9 etc will feel the same, and I doubt it will show up in the winner's circle at the games as much, but I don't really care. Not a Glock killer, but it is another good choice.

Was at the range w several CBP agents. They tried the SR9 and said they would rather carry it, or their old Glocks (or XD/M&P), than their new HK P2000 w LEM. Ya never know?

Thanks for the report. How many rounds have you shot? Any function issues? Do you have issues loading the mags I have heard that as a constant issue.

Thanks again

About 1,000 through one, about 500 through another.

No stoppages/failures/breakage w both.

Would not call the triggers good, but I wouldn't call them bad either.

Mags are hard to load w FMJ (need supplied mag loader), easy w JHPs (my thumbs do fine).

Mag release stiff loaded, OK unloaded.

This isn't for folks who like/want Glocks as is. This is for folks who like/want something like a Glock w a different grip and more safety features at a good price. If I was issued one I would not complain. Wouldn't have to; somebody else always does.

Field strip w/o pulling the trigger is a plus for some. Say a PD who never had an ND in their cleaning rooms at the academy/range w their old revolvers/autos, but have had several w their Glocks in less than 10 yrs...  ;)
