    I have a quick loader and 2 double stack 17 round mags on order from ruger. Had the 20% off code when I registered. Price was about $64.00 and change so I paid a little more than you. You are right about the quick loader- 17 rounds into a new mag was brutal on the finger tips. Thanks for the info.

    Lots of rain coming the next few days here in Houston, Tx--wife freaks out when it rains too much so it will be a few days before I get to the range. But when I do I'll post my experience with the 9E.

    Welcome from just south of you. :tiphat:
    The news always pumps up the threat of weather. Sometimes they know what they're talking about.
    Most of the time the news guy stands in a ditch saying "see how high the water is". :cheesy:
    :welcome:

    3-13. Finally made it to Gun range. Had 2 ftl's then remembered reading in the Ruger forum about tapping the double stacked mags. Worked like a champ afterwards--just remember to tap the mag so as the rounds are as close to the entrance ramp as possible!
