Just took this to the range for the first time. My first impressions:
1- The pistol is very light, and the grip is very narrow. Excellent for concealed carry.
2- The sights are simple white dot, but are easy to acquire, and the weapon points well.
3- I was able to get 3-4" groups from about 17 yards. May not sound like much, but for a weapon this size, it's very acceptable.
4- Recoil was surprisingly manageable.
5- The price was lowest, and the purchase and transfer were effortless, as usual. Buds is simply the BEST.
NOT SO GOOD
1- The dang loaded chamber indicator that runs down the top of the slide and pops up. I know Ruger wanted to make this "California" compliant, but as far as I'm concerned, they should have told the CA gun grabbers and their laws to take a hike.
