Picked one of the new Ruger SR9 pistols up and couldnt believe how easy the trigger was, had to buy it, now I am not sorry, best trigger I have found on a striker fired pistol, It is my carry firearm now for both winter and summer carry, I shot 4 different loads and the pistol shot them without a jam and very accurately. Sights are adjustable but I didnt have to adjust them, this is one fine pistol, check them out...you will want one...JImP. ;D

The one I handled in the store had a horrible trigger.

Wonder if you just got a good one---or I handled a bad one----or if they're just hit and miss?

I couldn't recommend one till they get the trigger fixed---based on my limited experience----and I usually like Rugers.

As for the trigger, the best way I can describe how it feels is when it actually firing it. Dry firing (with an empty magazine in) is fair...not great, BUT... when you actually shoot the SR9 it is pretty damn smooth! For some reason this pistol just feels good to me compared to others. It's not blocky in shape. Light weight, slim and comfortable. Mags are a little hard to load the last rounds manually, but mine is getting easier. I think this is of no issue. The safety? Just fine for me. A little harder going into safe position, easy going to fire. Thats a no brainer. No biggie. Safety is in ergonomic place where it should be. Mag release button, yep they are a little hard to activate (only with a 17 rounds in the mag, less than that no problem at all. Would rather have it a little hard, then to inadvertintly loose a mag somewhere and there you are with your pants down. Right? I find the loaded chamber indicator a plus, especially for my wife. There is NO DOUBT when it loaded! If some one does't like it, whaaaa...I say safety is paramount. Also for those that might moan about it, you can also deactivate the feature where the gun won't fire without the mag. Thats your choice. Target pistol? Nope. Defensive pistol? **** YEAH!
I am amazed at the engineering that went into this pistol. I really mean it. I have zero gripes with it. You can't tell me theres another gun on the market that is that slim and light, holds 18 rounds, feels kinda like a 1911 for a price that won't rip your pants off!

Trigger on mine feels gritty, too, but this is the sweetest-shooting striker auto I've owned, and the trigger seems to be getting smoother with use. $399 at Sportsman's Warehouse.
