Color comes down to preference... BUT... I can tell you that a CCW piece in Stainless will show MUCH LESS holster wear than a Black or Blued finish.

Been carrying my Stainless Kahr PM 9 daily for 5 years and it could still pass for "NIB" condition.

Stainless for me. Blued version just looks like any Glock, XD or M&P.

I recently purchased this one at a state dealership. Cause it's different.
It's also different than my Revolver.

Recently I had to adjust to the fact that constantly shooting .45 & .357's were reminding me of how bad my back and shoulders were. So I completed a switch to .9mm( went from 2 to 5 of em) and the three new ones were all Ruger, both SR9 and 9c and the LC9 as well. The full size and the LC are Black while the 9c is stainless. I notice at my indoor range my groups with the SR's are tighter then the LC.

I was also lucky to have slowly built up my stocks of critical ammo before all this crazy shortage stuff started. (9/45/38/357, 12 & 20 Ga. Finally ran out of .22 LR and had to find new ammo for Dw's 2 new .32acp's. Wow what a nightmare!
