    Thanks.
    The SR9 is with me and its beautiful. First time gun owner.
    Any recommendations on ammo?
    Do you guys get it online or at the gun store?
    I want both range and home safety.

    I buy ammo online and in stores. Shoot a couple hundred FMJ rounds through it before relying on it for SD/HD. Federal, Blazer, Fiocchi, PMC, Speer, Remington, Sellier & Bellot, it's all good. Most range stuff will be 115 gr.

    For HD, I like Federal HST in 124 or 147 gr, whichever I can find. Be sure to shoot a box of HD rounds through your gun to verify it cycles correctly. Speer Gold Dots are good too.

    I see your a first-time gun owner. Do you have any shooting experience?
