Decided to walk in and apply for my HSC and everything went great. Awesome staff made me feel really comfortable around the store as im new to the gun world. I didnt purchase anything that same day as a friendly worker suggested i do some homework and try stuff out before i buy. Well im leaning towards the Ruger sr9 that weapon looks beautiful and feels great. However it is a little high in the price range for me right now. Any of you guys over at turners or someone with some prior experience know how i could score a good deal on this handgun? Is there any season of great deals like 'glock days'for Ruger? Thanks for any inputs.. Im excited in owning my first hangun and taking it to the range.

I'd look also at the SA XD9. Turners has the essential models for sale once in awhile for $399. SA had a promotion last year for 3 additional mags and carrier for free.

here's a review link to some 9mm pistols:

i recommend to go and rent a pistol at the range and try it out. you usually have to buy their ammo. Oak Tree Gun Club has a big selection of pistols.

Ruger PT 95 IIRC is cheaper at about $320 on sale.
Check Turner's site here
http://www.turners.com/
for their weekly sales, I think a new ad comes out every Thursday. They do have various Rugers on sale so it may be about $40 or cheaper when it's on sale.

I think in this section every few weeks or so there are sales/promotions just for calguns members you can print out and bring for a discount.

Also consider getting a used one from here or at the store as well.

Good luck.

Ruger Days promotions occur about twice a year. We run Ruger's on ad weekly, as well as during our 3 annual flyers. The next one will break in March.

XD's are great buys. The SA promo is over but they generally do one or two of these a year.

Yep- all good suggestions.

I have 2 Ruger P95's and I love them both. Built like tanks and wholly reliable.

I appreciate everyones input and willingness to help me out.. I've already handled and fired the sr9 which is why I would love to make it my first purchase. Being in the los angeles area makes buying hanguns very difficult as retailers seem limited. Ive been following Turners for a special on the sr9 but its been stuck at 469$. My birthday is the 21 of this month maybe ill get it by then and take it to the range with some buddies.
