Default Ruger SR40c

I'm considering buying the Ruger SR40c and was wondering what y'all thought about it. It's mainly going to be a range and carry firearm, and the replacement for my beloved Ruger SR9c (I want to have more punch in my carry firearm ).

I'm also considering the XDm 3.8 Compact .40 and the Glock 27. What are y'all's thoughts?

I just want a little more bang for my buck (pun intended). I carry my Springfield 1911 in the fall and winter, and I want to switch out my spring and summer carry to something that's still easy to conceal, but gives me a little more punch.

I don't live in the worst part of town, but not the best either. As for where I hang out, that's mostly gunshops, gunshows, and my cousin's property to do some shootin' .

A .40 in any polymer under 4" is just a little too snappy for me to enjoy shooting much. Keep the SR9c is my vote.

I'm going to keep my SR9c, because it was my first firearm I purchase and I just love the thing so much. I wish my local range had a Ruger SR40c or some other compact firearm I could try out . How does the recoil compare to the .45 ACP?
