I have a SR9C and love it. It's a very accurate and reliable gun. I have a Sig for edc, but I wouldn't bat an eye if I had to use the Ruger as an edc.
I actually try to ease folks toward the Ruger as a first gun gun choice.
Affordable, accurate, reliable, and a decent resale value if they decide to move up. Although I'm finding most just keep them if they buy another handgun.
