It's all about the trigger. It's impossible to manufacture a double action with a trigger as crisp as a single action. People with bad shooting habits can still shoot the 1911 accurately because the trigger is so forgiving.

Well... I'm going to disappoint everyone here but I went with the sr9. $100 less, fits my hand better, and Rugers customer service is beyond anything I've seen or heard of..

Can't go wrong with the Ruger. At the end of the day, the most important part is if YOU like it. Congrats on the purchase!

Your in Cali? so no 17Rd. ers?? get on shopruger.com and get some fingerext's for your mags!! I used to have the store(LGS) do them for me(put them on) but nw I have a few new Tools since Im in GunSmithing school, so I install them myself now. On the smaller Rugers the mags can come with them installed(LCP/LC380/LC9) but on the SR's you have to put them on yourself. I have 10 SR9 Mags(7-17's & 3 10's incase I take a "Vacay" In Cali). 4 of the 7-17's have the Ext's. Where-ever you plan to carry, get a Good Holster. I have 2 DropLeg's(a Blackhawk & a 5.11) A Shoulder Rig From Maxpedition, plus my Bianchi shoulder rig for the 92's also fits the SR's, a few Vests with Holsters built in, and an Uncle MIke's Sidekick, which I love for "Hip" carry, but the SR full size is too big for concealed carry in Warmer climates!! I also had a 9C for a few months, but My wife Needed a 20Ga Semi-Auto...

point is, YOU will not be disappointed. when you pose a questions such as "A versus B" brands, you will get answers from all sides. Some folks will get irritated if you ask advice then not take it (the old and crotchety lol). Pay no attention. Take the good, leave the bad and enjoy your Ruger. Glock is no technically better than the Ruger. Anyone who tells you that does not know firearms they just know brand loyalty (like sports fanatics). I've compared on numerous occasions and found the ugly square guns didn't feel good in my hand

Great choice OP...Ive owned both and would prob go with the SR9 also. My only issue was the grip was too plain and slippery which can be deadly in a threat situation and affect accuracy...specially if you are sweaty.... nothing to bite onto with the SR9 grip. I added a Hogue hand-all grip and it worked great

I agree! I have owned several Rugers & still own a P345 which handles anything I've ever shot in it w/o any hang ups unlike my wifes new Taurus P111G2 which is very finicky about what loads it shoots. My very first brand new pistol was a Ruger Security Six in .357 mag. I shot a coyote w/it at 5o yards w/o really aiming, just drew & shot carried it on duty for several yrs b4 trading it for .45 long Colt (Stupid me).

A visit to talon grips with change that! Thin, well matched for the model, and very tactile.
