Ruger SR9 Available in CA and MA

Ruger's SR9 is added to the "good gun" lists in California and Massachusetts.

Ruger strongly believes that responsible American citizens in California and Massachusetts should also be able to choose quality, American-made firearms when exercising their Second Amendment Right to keep and bear arms.

Southport, CT- November 26, 2008 - Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. is pleased to announce that the Ruger SR9 pistol has been placed on the Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale within the State of California, as well as the Massachusetts Approved Firearms Roster. The SR9 pistol, chambered for 9mm Luger, was introduced last October and is the first striker-fired pistol from Ruger.

"We consider this a significant event," said Sturm, Ruger Vice President of Sales and Marketing Chris Killoy. "The addition of the SR9 pistol to the California and Massachusetts lists reflects our commitment to the law abiding citizens of those states. Ruger strongly believes that responsible American citizens should be able to choose quality, American-made firearms when exercising their Second Amendment Right to keep and bear arms, and that certainly extends to the thousands of shooting enthusiasts in California and Massachusetts."

The Ruger SR9 pistol currently available in California and Massachusetts (model number 3309, catalog number KSR9-10-L) features a black frame with a brushed stainless steel slide. The pistol has a slim grip and a narrow slide that make it the most comfortable shooting striker-fired pistol available today. SR9 pistols feature a unique reversible backstrap, allowing owners to quickly customize the size and feel of the grip without having to carry separate inserts or use special tools. The SR9 appeals to both left- and right-handed shooters as it features ambidextrous manual safeties and magazine latches, both located where 1911 users expect them to be.

The structurally rigid, recoil-reducing, glass-filled nylon frame offers a slim, ergonomic grip with a 17-degree grip angle and three 22 lpi checkered panels that provide a sure grip without being abrasive. The rear sight, part of the low-profile, high-visibility, three-dot sight system, is click adjustable for elevation. Both front and rear sights are drift adjustable for windage to put shooters on target with their choice of ammunition.

The Picatinny rail accepts firearm-mounted lights for target identification in all light conditions, or an easy-to-use laser. The Ruger SR9 pistol also offers an internal trigger bar interlock and striker blocker, trigger safety, magazine disconnect, and a visual and tactile loaded chamber indicator. In compliance with the laws of both states, the Ruger SR9 pistol is shipped with two 10 round magazines.
