 Silver Ruger SR9Ruger SR9

On October 18, 2007, Ruger Firearms introduced a new high-capacity, polymer-frame, striker-fired 9mm pistol called the Ruger SR9 pistol. The new pistol has a capacity of 17+1 rounds (17 in the mag +1 up the pipe). This is welcome news, since DefenseReview happens to like high-capacity, polymer-framed, striker fired pistols in general. We also like the 9mm Parabellum a.k.a. 9mm NATO round (9x19mm), provided you're using quality factory hollowpoints. Why do we like 9mm, because it tends to be less expensive than .40 S&W and .45 ACP and produces less recoil, making it easier to shoot accurately in rapid multiple-shot strings. The lower ammo price and recoil generation make a weapon in this caliber easier to practice with without breaking the bank or your wrist(s) over time. 9mm is simply more pleasurable to shoot, especially if you're shooting a lot. And, with the right factory hollowpoints, it can get the job done for defensive and tactical applications.
