Hey guys my dad is now down in florida and has caught the gun bug lol.. He asked me for advice in a new semi auto pistol but I'm not that far into knowledge for pistols to help to much.. I was down there a while ago and shot a ruger sr9 and it was pretty sweet and accurate.. He wants it in 9mm and size that is easy to carry also.. I suggested the sr9c by ruger for the fact I shot it's big brother.. What's your take on it? Also any other suggestions are welcome.. Is there a big difference in 9mm to .40 recoil? I think he would open up to a 40 also.. He carried a 38 revolver wile he was in the NYPD so this is his first semiauto..
