    Just bought this puppy for $430. Here is Nutnfancy's review of it and he got it spot on.

    S&W bodyguard 380 looks like a great carry pistol.

    S&W MP40 for full sized, 450 dollars. P226 is too expensive.



    This is a nutnfancy review on: the glock 17
    let's use as a frame of reference, the glock 17

    I've watched all of his vids. Yes, even the "Xooter"

    Not a Ruger fan at all (unless you want to talk about 10-22's) but the ergonomics of this gun's grip look spot on...

    I'm sure the gun is fine but for around that price you can get a glock. The glocks reliability and durability is second to none.

    They had a recall on the first ones that were sold. So make sure your is a post recall. I have seen and heard that are pretty good guns but I don't like the loaded indacater on top. It just a personal thing. I handle one of the SR9c and I like the feel of it.

    I like rugers too, I have three but all revolvers.

    aren't there ever any cool new revolvers being released?

    +1. Well, in 9mm anyway.

    I prefer my G26. I'm willing to bet it's more durable.

    And NutnFancy kinda sucks...


    soooo cuet... *tickles*

    I would take a glock over the ruger. I like Nutfancy. He seems to cover the Positives and negatives and highlight some features of the gun.

    i fired a few mags through this a few days ago at the range and while i enjoyed the way it shot, i didn't care for the grip in the slightest

    I agree that nutnfancy is quite annoying. I don't understand these "buy this gun" threads in the slightest. Some guns fit the needs of others better than another gun, etc... No one gun is the universal "best" gun.

    I have to agree the damn spring tension in the magazine is nuts.

    nutnfancy seems to cream over the Glock. For a first hand gun, target practice 9mm, Glock seems like a solid choice?

    On topic... why would you suggest the Ruger SR9 over a Glock?

    because you dont like glocks?

    i dont really lock glocks at all. i understand their popularity, to a degree, but personally find them horrible to hold and shoot.

    to be fair, the only time i shot one was the first pistol i fired, and immediately disliked it. shot an xd9 next and quite enjoyed it. i suppose i should give them a second chance but i find them quite plain and ugly. sure a life preserving weapon shouldnt have to look sexy, but come on

    Anyone absolutely HATE the "Glock like" trigger safety thing?
    It doesn't affect the gun, but it's so fucking ugly. I rather have a handgun with a real trigger and a real safety.

    He might mean that he's gotten so accustomed to shooting a "safe action" style trigger that it doesn't really bother him like it may bother others...but that's just speculation.

    :redface:

    Edit: I stand corrected.

    It doesn't stick out so much on the sr9. the loaded chamber indicator is what is butt ugly.
