    While I don't own one and thus have no "dog in the fight," I think I would want some more specifics and sources.

    I don't know what your game is tblt but you're posting all over the place about which pistol is what and help me make my mind up about this and that, why don't you try following your original thread'(s). you've recieved more than good advice in my opinion on all your different posting's................

    So what, because he's asked a few similar questions he's not allowed to ask any more?

    Seriously, what's the problem? Maybe the other threads didn't answer his question, or maybe, just maybe, he had some different questions.

    My advice - lighten up. He's new, and trying to learn. If you don't like the posts, keep scrolling and read something else. THR is here for people to learn things, not to be told how many posts they can make on what subjects.

    By all means, poke around on the 'net forums (especially Ruger dedicated) and see if anybody has reported this. I certainly haven't read anything about anything similar happening. I think this guy is either full of it or the failure was an isolated case (if he was telling the truth). Frankly, I ignore virtually all of what gunshop employees tell me. I've found that they generally know less about what they're selling than I do and they make up things to fill in the holes in their knowledge or support their own particular prejudices. Even if this guy's accounts are true, Ruger will take care of it quickly. No manufacturer wants unhappy customers posting all over the net about how their brand new toy did............whatever.

    Either he didn't have one or he wanted to sell something with a higher profit margin.

    The expression "falling apart" sounds more like a judgemental conclusion than something literally happening - especially with a Ruger product. I'd really check into this and ask him specifically what is happening when it "falls apart".

    Call Ruger and tell them you are interested in purchasing the SR 9 pistol. Then tell them what you were told and ask them what their warranty repairs have been for that model. Then you'll get a better picture of what is happening.

    Something's rotten in Denmark.

    I don't own any Ruger firearms, but I've had experience with them in the past. If a Ruger "fell apart" due to anything short of run over by a train, I'd be surprised. Say what you want about their ergonomics, they are sturdy.

    I haven't had my SR9 very long, but I can tell you that it has been 100% from the first shot and IMO is well made.

    Does the SR9 use a slide stop in the design?

    I HAVE had a Ruger P97 have its slide stop work partially out during firing.

    This is the only thing I could think of that he may be referring to?

    TBLT? What did the guy at the gunshop suggest that you buy instead of the ruger?

    It has a take down pin, if that's what you're referring to and I can't see that ever working out. It has kind of springed tab that pops into a cutout that feels very secure to me.

    I have done some rapid fire with mine and if the pin was ever going to work out, it would have been then.

    Falling apart would be a little vague for me. If they don't know any more details than that, they don't know it happened. What does "fell apart" mean? The grip fell off? The slide fell off?

    That being said it isn't always the greatest idea to buy the first run of anything. Waiting a little won't hurt.

    No matter what, if the gun had some issue, ruger would just fix/update it for you.
