This was just that, a function check; more thorough range work mañana. Field stripped, cleaned (it didn't need much) last evening. Left the finger rest mag bases in place for this test. Fired 18 rounds (2 mags worth) of Winchester white box FMJ, at 12 yards, the last 12 rounds one-handed. 2nd round was a yank, the rest stayed in the 12" bull. Enough scatter so that the factory sight setting was only probably OK. Determined that 2 fingers squeezing the grip is enough, the recoil being so manageable. Swapped out to the plain mag bases when I came home. The recoil is so moderate that I've decided to go one-handed with this gun. Would be one-handed anyway if the BG was too close to start with. I like the gun; it handles good and even looks good. I'll need to get used to the trigger. Not too stiff, but long and a little 'gritty'. My only other experience with a striker-fired centerfire handgun has been with a S&W M&P that I didn't have long. The safety lever is too small and stiff to be useful for CCW, I think. The trigger safety will have to do. Tomorrow, I will bring another 18 roungs of FMJ, and maybe 24 of the Winchester white box JHP, and work on 'trigger familiarization'. I'm thinking that, if police departments had carried Ruger SR40s, they wouldn't have thought it necessary to switch to 9x19. The gentleness of the recoil is impressive.
