I did have an SR45 and loved it, but I used it as part of a trade for the SR1911. The SR1911 is great, but I wish I would have held onto the SR45.It's Super!! Son says that is because it is a full size pistol is why it's a pleasure to shoot. I also bought a Ruger SRC 40 that's a fine shooting pistol also. I carry the 40c in a Sneaky Pete holster. The 9E is for target practice and around the house.
