I am one of the worlds biggest ruger fanboys. The SR9 is a Glock knock off. I wouldn't buy a knock off when the extremely popular original Glock is on the shelf beside it. The SR9 is a decent shooting pistol. They are very popular in this area. I have shot several of them.

Glock has been fine tuning their product for years. This is Rugers first try with SR series pistols. It took several models for Ruger to perfect the legendary P series pistols. We have yet to see the best of the SR series of pistols.

You have to shoot both to know the answer.

I have an SR9c and would actually recommend it over the SR9 as it is more versatile in my opinion. Mine has been 100% reliable so far and shoots very accurately.

I don't know about 9mm for bear and cougars, how about 10mm?

Back to your question, Glock 17/19 over the Ruger. I have the 22/23/27 trio and like them a lot.

I Love this answer.

Great point. 9mm is likely to just piss a bear off.

So I'm getting the feeling that I should be looking at a glock 22 then. Thanks for the feedback!

The G22 is a good choice, you can get hot 40S&W loads that approach the 10mm, use standard loads and even pick up a 40-9mm conversion barrel.

G22 is a good choice. Just be sure not to shoot anything too hot out of it with the stock barrel in it.

Ohh, and be sure to pick up a 9mm conversion barrel.

I have a sr45 and glock 23 and love both. I think I favor the rugers trigger and ergo's, but I still like and trust my glock more. Both should be great guns.

How much of a price difference is there between g 22 and a m&p 40?
