Maybe some of you have seen this but I just saw it today. A newer offering from Ruger which is a slightly cheapened version of the SR9. My LGS has it for $329 currently but I'm betting it gets down to $300 not too long from now. Probably to compete with the S&W SDVE line. Since the P95 was discontinued it seems Ruger decided to get back into the 'budget' pistol market. I really like the new pistol. It is an SR9 really but they got rid of the big loaded chamber indicator that I never did like and the slide isn't machined as much. It only comes with one mag so that kind of stinks. Oh well, if I buy one I have plenty of mags for my SR9 so no biggie (they use the same). There are some more differences but I can't remember all of them. Overall I think it will do well and like I said, when the newness wears off I bet the price drops. $429 is the MSRP according to Ruger on the 9E, the SR9 is at $529. SR9 is usually about $389-$399 retail where I am. Magazines at my LGS are just about $40 so kind of steep. Gotta figure that in. Might buy one, might not. I don't need it but my SR9 has been a fantastic pistol and if I can basically get another for about $100 less I just might do it. Anyone else looking at this gun?
