which 9mm gun?
 
I wanted the ruger sr9 then they came out with the sr9c which can be ccw and also have 17 rounds as a full size pistol. then I started checking out the smith and wesson m&p 9mm and I liked it. then the glock 19. it seems like glock fans have nothing to say good about any other gun (they are fans but to the casual gun buyer it makes it looks bad)

1. I have heard great things on the sr9c but then a few people say its a ruger and a piece of junk.

2. I currently own a ruger lcp. I can shoot it fine. how much more recoil would be on a 9mm and how concealable is the glock 19? I dont want to buy a glock but if it the best option I will.

Thanks guys.

I would also consider a springfield, but 9mm is what I want. I know a lot on calibers and ammo. but the actual pistols confuse me a little.

The SR9c is getting stellar reviews by owners on all KINDS of different forums. I own one and it's been a great little gun so far. I love the adjustable sights.

I just traded a Glock 19 for a Ruger SR9c. The Ruger guns are not junk and are made in the USA. I like my new Ruger a lot better than the Glock. To be fair, the Glock 19 was a little to big for my hands.

I love ruger and wanted the sr9c. I thought it was the best value but now with all this stuff from other people say on youtube got me confused. I want the sr9c but people say how it jams and stuff but I still wanted it. I only wanted to buy american. ruger does a lot for our shooting rights.

First, don't listen to the interwebz, especially YouTube. I don't own one but a good friend does and he loves it. If any gun jams (do they say what kind of jam?) all the time, then it needs to go back to the mfr to be made right. Never let YouTube or the webz influence your decision.

ok that is what I figured. I like the ruger sr9c.

Never is a very strong word and I would never go that far. If I do, I won't be in any gun forums. Like everything, I put what I read and watch in consideration before making my decision factoring the credibility of the source (if possible). If you hang around forums enough, you will know who are knowledgeable and fair/objective. I say that since some are experts but biased (heard of fanboys?).

Fear is a healthy thing, use it in your advantage. You will still make mistakes but hopefully you can minimize it. Research some more until you are content before spending your money.

Problem with some, is that they only see/hear what they want and dismiss the rest. This can be dangerous and hope you you do not fall for it.

This is a general advise, NOT specifically geared towards SR9/SR9c in any way.

Take his advise (and mine) like you would anything...with a grain of salt. ;)

I wouldn't be afraid of getting anything from Ruger. If you like the SR9c, get one. I'll bet you'll be bragging about it in a year.

No problems with mine and I shoot a variety of bullets. I shoot 115 and 125 grain cast lead bullets as well as plated bullets and JHPs. Never had a single problem or even the slightest hint of a jam with my gun.
