    Anyone own these? Can I get some feedback or input on these? I've added these to my hit list of needs. Thanks in advance.

    I just bought the SR9 and I love it. Took it to the range last week and it was flawless. The sights were nice and the recoil was very manageable.

    I bought the P95 a month ago ran me 360 for the blued. Great gun i love it, bulky for CC but great accuracy. One mag had problems till after bout 350 rounds. no problems after that and i love the safety of the decocker, since my wife and kid shoot it. 15 round capacity is nice and easy to disassemble.

    I purchased the SR9C last summer. I have put 700 rounds through it and have not been disapointed. no problems. shoots pretty good. i would imagin the SR9 is just as good. my friend has the the other pistol. its nice. i dont like it and would rather have a 1911 or something. it does shoot okay. had a problem with one magazine as the other poster said. i believe its working fine now tho

    I just ordered my SR9 and I'm very excited, saw lots of good reviews on it, especially on youTube.

    Yeah. Sr9 is okay. Got a heavy trigger and isn't my favorite gun. But its not to bad for the 300.00 bucks I paid for it.

    I have shot the SR9, but not the P95. I rented the SR9 at AFS, put about 25 rounds through it. It felt really good in the hands, with minimal recoil. I also rented a glock 17 and shot them side by side. I didnt notice any difference in the trigger between the two. The SR9 was way more comfortable, but I shot the glock more accurately.

    For whatever reason, the compacts seem to have a better trigger than the standard sr9 or sr40. Don't know why but I'm not the only one to notice it. I also like the versatility of the compact. I own the sr40c and i like this pistol the most out of any pistol that I have or had, which is quite a few. Hard to go wrong with ruger.

    I was at my local gun store yesterday and saw the SR9 and 40, held both. Love the look, feels top heavy but maybe that's just me. I ALSO checked out some Smith and Wessons. I believe it was the Sigma? Very nice looking and very nice price tag too.

    Edit: is it bad to want them all?

    It's only bad if you don't get them all.

    It felt top heavy because there wasn't any ammo in it.:)

    Makes perfect sense.


    So after I get my SA 1911 in a few weeks, I'm going to purchase one of the previous mentioned 9mm's including the possibility of the S&W. Thanks all.

    I own both of these fine pistols. I carry the SR9C just about every day. I have approx. 500 rounds of many different types and brands of ammo. I never have had a miscue of any kind. It it well worth the money. As for the P95, that was my 1st purchase when I got into firearms. It is also a fine firearm. It is a little husky for concealed carry but can be done with a good OWB holster and a good belt. It shoots straight, has a decent trigger, mine has a de-cocker, it's very reliable, and with a 15+1 capacity all add up to a firearm well worth the price. For home defense, it's hard to beat for the investment.

    Be well.

    Considering the consequences is never wasted time.

    I have owned my P95 for 7 months. Shoots any cheap ammo I put through it and it is quite accurate.
    It is my primary carry gun, usually OC weather permitting.

    I had a P95 stainless for about 3 years until it was stolen out of my truck. It was my first handgun purchase I really liked the gun I will be getting another one in the near future

    As a gun sales manager, i prefer the SR9 over the p95. The SR series is newer, has modular backstraps, and just performs better. Field stripping is easier as well, all for just under a hundred dollars more. The sigma's are a throw away piece, I wouldn't recommend that one, spring for the M&P if you're going with a smith
