Picked up my first gun a few months ago sr9 love the gun wanting to see what others where thinking. 150 rounds so far and no problems. It's the 4th gen with the d clip release. So what are your thoughts?
I held one today for the first time at Academy Sports. I like the feel of the gun in hand but haven't shot one yet. My local range has the compact for rent. I think I am gonna give it a try and if I like it buy the full size.
It has a adjustable back plate on the grip I just switched mine yesterday feels just like a 1911 except plastic. Can't wait to try shooting now. I tryed the glocks but the just didn't fit my hand as well. Plus the sr9 new was the same price as a well used glock locally. Waiting for a friend to bring a glock to the range so I can compare them because I really wanted the glock. Can never have to many guns. Ha
I have the Sr9c and love it. Mostly carry it with the 17 round mag, but sometimes have the 10 round in when can't have such a large print. Have about 500 rounds through it with no problems. Not a great group at 25 yards, but with the shorter sight radius and my own problems, not so bad. Up close (7 yards to 15 yards) might have one flyer out of 17 that, I'm sure, is my fault. Thought the double action trigger would be a problem, but it is better than the old .38 S&W duty weapon I used to carry when I was in the Security Police in the Air Force.
Got a couple thousand rounds through mine and not a single problem. I like it better than the Glock 17 due to what I feel is better aesthetics... has been just as reliable as the Glock 19s owned by two of my range buddies and I like the way it feels in hand...
My wife has the SR9c and it has been truly excellent. 1,000s if rounds fired at this point a year since buying it and I cannot recall there being a single misfeed, stove pipe, failure to eject, or anything like that. We buy cheap ammo for range practice too. I'd trust this gun to go bang every time.
When debating aquiring my concealed carry permit I also debate what weapon to carry as my primary and I always come back to these three in this order... SR9c, Kahr CW9, LC9.... I need range time with the latter two to be sure either way but given that I have the full size SR9 I think it makes sense to use something with a comparable battery of arms... i.e. the SR9c...
I have an Sr9 and an Sr9c and I love them both. I have put several thousand rounds through both and they have both worked flawlessly. The Sr9c is a great concealed carry gun. I would recommend the Sr9 and Sr9c!!
