I love mine! I don't have many rounds in with mine. Just got it this weekend and only have enough time with it to feel confident (well, pretty confident) with it as my CCW. That said, it is amazingly comfy, shoots great with the .40 (I HATED my Glock 27), and it's an American-Made Ruger. You can't beat it. Also, it comes in at $150 less than the M&Ps on sale. It's not made any less well, it's just not as "sexy". And as every Glock fan knows, people are willing to pay big money extra for "sexy" and a name.

Just purchased my first handgun Ruger SR9c, can't wait for this weekend to come. The gun was a perfect fit and satisfied by first impressions.

Just got my sr9c about two weeks ago and ran around 250 rounds threw it and no problems yet. It has a sweet trigger and I havnt shot a 40 yet but I too didn't know what one to go with so I chose the one that would be cheaper to practice with to get good with. I will probably give this one to the wife eventually and get me the 40 but I'm lovin this thing to much. I'm using mine as a ccw but either way you go this is a great gun to buy you won't be disappointed that's for sure. It came with a 17 round mag too that makes it into a sr9 and then slap the 10 rounder in for your ccw

I had an sr9c and put a few thousand rounds through it in about 7 mos & never had an issue. However, I really did not like the trigger but thought maybe I would get used to it & never did so I got rid of it. I did read that ruger has updated the triggers on the newer sr's so the issue that I had may be a thing of the past....great weapon for cc ad well

From what I've read, the compact models (both 9MM and 40 S&W) seem to have better triggers than the full size models. When they were developing the compact models, they slicked the triggers up a bit. My SR40C has a really nice trigger.

The trigger on mine felt HORRIBLE out of the box. 10 pulls later it felt nice, and now it's starting to feel downright sweet

I have the SR9c and have had it about two years. Close to 4000 rounds through it without any serious problems. It took about 75 rounds to break in, but any FTFs stopped then (I had a few in the first few mags) except for some Winchester White Box that I had a problem with.

The trigger is nice and crisp, and the felt recoil is not bad. An accurate gun also. I did have to adjust the sights for elevation.

My daughter liked mine so much she went out and bought her own.

You will probably like either, so good luck and enjoy.

So on the sound advice I got here I was all set to get my own SR9 today. However when I was talking with a buddy at work about what I was going to get she told me her husband was looking to sell his P95dc to raise funds for a Glock.

Less then 6 months old, under a 1,000 rounds through it, nothing wrong with it, all for $200. After taking a quick look at it I was sold. Sure its not as pretty as the SR9, but $200!! How do you pass that up? And besides, the money I saved can go toward ammo or the next gun.

What do you think? Good deal?

Darn right it's a good deal! And it's a very nice gun. Basically, ya got a new gun (1000 rounds ain't noth'n) for $100 less than the price of a new one. Here are a couple of video reviews on it. Watching these vids should keep ya busy for a few hours. And ya just might learn some stuff about your new gun. Now shoot that puppy and tell us how ya like it.

Happy Shooting TallGuy
