    Looks interesting.

    I'd really like to test drive one.

    The one thing I really like to see is how the back of the grip is interchangeable by sliding it out and flipping it over...

    I've held, racked the slide and dry fired one. Fairly nice gun IMO. Very non-typical of Ruger, because it weighs so little. Easy enough looking takedown.

    How did the trigger pull feel for you?

    It was acceptable for what I would consider a "combat pistol". It was fairly short, and it wasn't too heavy. Looking at Ruger's site, it seems that they make them in all black now, which is nice.

    It's nice and thin, and fits my paws very well. The trigger break is rather "empty" feeling, acceptable trigger travel, but then just drops off, but I REALLY like the reset on it. More crisp than my Glock 17. :noes:

    What I don't like is it has the goofy empty mag safety. Which makes it useless for competitive shooting for me. And it's rather ugly, even for a poly striker fire pistol.

    Felt one up at the last fun show. Seemed nice, couldn't dry fire it, holds 17+1 of 9mm. I'd probably buy a Glock instead though.

    seems a lot thinner and concealable than a glock 17

    On the other side of that coin, what if the mag release gets bumped in the holster. You go to draw and your squeezing on a piece of plastic in the face of a criminal.

    I got to check one out a few weeks ago, it's a lot nicer feeling than their usual guns, still kinda bulky compared to competition, but it still felt very nice.

    If you can find 1 example of a cop losing his life because of a magazine safety....well I'll be surprised. :big grin: I've looked and found none.

    Here's a great thread on them http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=332584

    Not that I want one but still.... :big grin:

    I was rather clear in my post that I lay no claim to that being based on actual statistics or facts.

    I just brought up to question the "probability" factor. Save that speech for someone else.

    :)

    I recall a few threads (regarding the practicality of having "extended" mag release for CCW.) where police where caught walking around with no magazine in their holstered gun, or a missing magazine because they have bumped their mag release and it droped somewhere. The probability of it happening during the same day being in a gun fight is also high, considering a vast majority of cops nowadays go through out their career without having to ever unholster their gun. But it's still entirely possible.

    I just think is another silly solution to a problem that was never really a big problem with side effects that are just as easily equally negative.

    Aren't take-aways and dumb cleaning mistakes a big enough problem, at least for cops? :big grin:
