I called and talked to ruger and was to NOT to shoot +P ammo thru the SR9c. So I don't know if that's company policy or just the person I was talking with. Maybe should recall them?

I see no need for +P myself. I carry my SR9c with either Hornady Critical Defense, or Corbon Pwrball ammo and feel certain it will do the job.

Actually the number is 4000 rounds, and at least 50 are +P. Like someone else said, I don't think that is all I would shoot through it, but so far it has been fine.

Sorry I'm new here, what's +P mean?

The P stands for pressure. There are industry standards (SAAMI) for the pressure generated in various cartridges. The +P indicates cartridges loaded to higher pressure and thus higher velocity than "standard". Most modern guns will tolerate +P ammo just fine and it is quite popular for use in SD weapons.

Both the SR9 and 9c are excellent guns with the 9c better for concealed carry. IMO these are the 3 nicest carry guns.

Ruger SR9c
S&W MP 9c
Beretta PX4 Storm compact --- NOT subcompact

I fired an SR9 at the range the other day, and the thing jammed on my very 3-5 rounds. I'm not impressed already.

It had to be the ammo I would think. SR9 was my first gun and I've put 400 rds through it already. I still don't know what a Failure to Fire or a jam feels like, because it hasn't happened yet.

I believe the SR9c is one of the top carry guns of all time. It is that nice!
For Home defense, range, and carry the SR9 full size is excellent also, just depends on what size gun you wish to carry. All I know is that they are very impressive guns, dependable, accurate, nice trigger, large magazines.
What more could you want?

I agree, my only problem has been Winchester White Box.
