    Ruger SR9

    I'm going to start with, I'm not sure if this section is the place for this, lol

    Anyway, I recently purchased a Ruger SR9, and I took it to the range for the first time last weekend. When firing, I noticed that about 10% of the expended cartridges were extracting straight back at the firer's face. I took a video that I'll upload to Youtube later today.

    I was just wondering if anyone else has heard of this? I sent an email to Ruger today, awaiting a response.

    Thanks in advance!

    Just a few questions to ask first. It will help anybody who would like to help you out.

    Is it a new gun? If so, did you clean it first before going to the range?

    How much shooting experience do you have? It might be an issue with limp wristing the pistol.

    What kind of ammo are you using? The SR9s have a history of not liking steel casings.

    I have shot my buddies SR9c a couple of times and it is a dream. He says he has never had any issues with it except for Tula Ammo. And if you place a five gallon bucket in the right spot you'll catch most of his spent casings.

    So aside from the casings bouncing off the range dividers,if the above problems aren't it then it is probably something Ruger would like to look at.

    Thanks for the response. It was actually my girlfriend firing when I noticed the issue. It was her first time firing a pistol, so it could have been her limp wristing.

    The gun is brand new, didn't clean it prior.

    The ammo was S&W full metal jacket, target ammo. I believe the casings are brass.

    Technique is the problem look at the grip. She needs to get her left hand off the bottom of the pistol and onto the grip.

    Gripping with the surport hand on the bottom or mag area will help in many ways. Having the hand there allows the recoil to effect the pistol in strange ways. It recoils off and away from the surport hand. Also putting pressue upwards on the mag can cause malfuntions.
