For whatever reason, the compacts seem to have a better trigger than the standard sr9 or sr40. Don't know why but I'm not the only one to notice it. I also like the versatility of the compact. I own the sr40c and i like this pistol the most out of any pistol that I have or had, which is quite a few. Hard to go wrong with ruger.

I was at my local gun store yesterday and saw the SR9 and 40, held both. Love the look, feels top heavy but maybe that's just me. I ALSO checked out some Smith and Wessons. I believe it was the Sigma? Very nice looking and very nice price tag too.

Edit: is it bad to want them all?

It's only bad if you don't get them all.

It felt top heavy because there wasn't any ammo in it.

Makes perfect sense.


So after I get my SA 1911 in a few weeks, I'm going to purchase one of the previous mentioned 9mm's including the possibility of the S&W. Thanks all.

I own both of these fine pistols. I carry the SR9C just about every day. I have approx. 500 rounds of many different types and brands of ammo. I never have had a miscue of any kind. It it well worth the money. As for the P95, that was my 1st purchase when I got into firearms. It is also a fine firearm. It is a little husky for concealed carry but can be done with a good OWB holster and a good belt. It shoots straight, has a decent trigger, mine has a de-cocker, it's very reliable, and with a 15+1 capacity all add up to a firearm well worth the price. For home defense, it's hard to beat for the investment.

Be well.

Considering the consequences is never wasted time.

I have owned my P95 for 7 months. Shoots any cheap ammo I put through it and it is quite accurate.
It is my primary carry gun, usually OC weather permitting.

I had a P95 stainless for about 3 years until it was stolen out of my truck. It was my first handgun purchase I really liked the gun I will be getting another one in the near future

Thank you gentlemen. I think they are for sure highest in my hit list of purchases. (something about that SR9 that reaks bad ass.)

As a gun sales manager, i prefer the SR9 over the p95. The SR series is newer, has modular backstraps, and just performs better. Field stripping is easier as well, all for just under a hundred dollars more. The sigma's are a throw away piece, I wouldn't recommend that one, spring for the M&P if you're going with a smith
