Wow that's a steep price for a sr9c. Around here in nw ohio they go for around $400 to $450 brand new. One good thing about where I live I guess. I second the little sig for around $500

I own a Keltec pf9. It seems to bite my trigger finger when I pull it. Also not a good choice in cold weather. If you are wearing a glove, your finger will not fit in the trigger guard. I do like the weapon, very reliable, and eats whatever I feed it. Would bet my life on it.

I have a Sigma. Mine is a .40. While the trigger is not a competition is a great self defense gun. The trigger is heavy to avoid an accidental discharge. I did a trigger job on mine. The most important thing about a self defense gun is that every time you pull the trigger it make a load bang, and a bullet flies out of the barrel. The Sigma is such a gun. It will go bang each and every time you pull the trigger. I have no experience with keltec so I will leave that up to those who do. But I have owned two Taurus guns. Both of them failed to go bang a bunch of times. That is why I got rid of both of them.
Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

Nick, is this your first handgun? As asked earlier, what are the intentions for it? Conceal, or just having fun shooting it, etc. If its for home protection, and plinking, etc, get a full sized one that will handles thousands of rounds of use without beating you up in the process.
