New Gun: Ruger Max-9 Pro

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

No, I’m not much of a gun guy. I’ve shot revolvers, pistols, rifles (both hunting style and defense, what they call assault rifles, style), and shotguns. The only one I own, though, is a Walther P22, which is a .22 caliber pistol, and pretty small. I purchased it in 2008, and go out and shoot a few times a year. I typically keep one mag loaded, though, it doesn’t stay in the pistol. It’s right next to it, and can be loaded fast. There’s no need to pull the slide back, it will load with the first trigger pull, though, that first pull is much tougher. Double action.

I wanted to get a 9mm for more defense, and because I’m going to get a concealed carry permit. .380 weapons are less expensive, but, interestingly, the ammo is more than 9mm. I went to Cabela’s (if you have one, ZOMG, huge number of choices, and the ammo is a great price. I got a box of 100 Winchester .22 for half the price anywhere else has it, including WalMart). I probably checked out about 8 different ones in my price range. I was looking for under $400, but, was willing to go up to $500. I really wanted one with a manual safety, the only one that felt good had a safety that was almost impossible.

It came down to a Glock and the Ruger, I kinda liked the grip and weight of the Ruger

I’ve shot it twice so far using range ammo. It has great action. Very light trigger, very little recoil. I could hit what I was aiming at…well, I was going just to the left, but, had the same issue with my Walther. Not sure if it was the new grip, how I was holding it more with left hand, or, need to get shooting goggles with bifocals built in. One mag holds 10 and the other holds 12. Here’s the wild thing

The one on the right is the Ruger, the other is the Walther. The Ruger easily fits in to the Walther case. It is slightly thicker, and the grip is slightly thicker. With the mag in the grip is longer. It is easier to drop a mag. With no hammer there’s barely any difference for recoil. The one really nice thing for the Walther is the front of the trigger, easy to get a finger secure on it. Not many have that. It is a bit easier to hit the slide lock on the Walther, have to break in the Ruger.

Now time to get a CCW. What do y’all have?
