    So i went to the range to shoot my new ruger SR9c on friday, and i must say it felt perfect in my hand, and shot, in my opinion, better than my friends XD SC. It had hardly any kick at all. I put 100 rounds through it with no problems at all.

    this was only my second time ever shooting a handgun, this gun made it really easy. i will try and put up pictures of the targets.

    a couple weeks ago i shot my friends Springfield XD 9mm SC, and a S&W sigma 9, but i like how my ruger shot way better than theirs. The trigger pull was awesome and almost felt like a rifle, which is what i like.

    I am very happy with this gun!

    Excellent! Please get pics up when you can.

    I'm still waiting for mine to bail out of CA ten day gun jail. I'll pick it up Friday. :(

    That's actually pretty darn good. It's not a target pistol, it's for self defense. Those groups will keep you alive. Just continue to practice and you'll get better.

    I like your choice and appreciate the range report. I am looking to pick one up in two weeks at the local gun show.

    Going to be my next gun too. Am waiting to see if it comes in Raspberry like the .380. Don't want to get a black one and have them come out right after I get one.

    I dont know the weapon well and Ive never shot one but it looks like you handle it well. If youre doing that already imagine how tight the groups will get as you keep practicing..Keep it up..

    SR9 and SR9c similarly accurate

    I got the Ruger SR9c last week. Had both it and the standard SR9 at the range Thrusday and have to say, I felt I shot as accurately with the slightly shorter barrel SR9c as I did with the SR9. Or should I say as inaccurately, whatever, you get what I'm saying. Love both pistols.

    On another topic, it sure is disappointing how badly I shoot my son's 3 inch barrel and my 4 inch barrel Ruger 357 Magnum (using 38 ammo), as compared to his 6" barrel 357 revolver. At 10 yards with the 3" barrel I'm lucky to hit the 12" target, and this is shooting single action. Shooting "double action", at age 60+ and in my 2nd year of shooting since the Army 40+ years ago, forget any kind of accuracy. Still a blast out there. Wish I'd discovered shooting years ago.
