    I like them. The rear sight dots are slightly smaller than I'm used to, but since I black out my rear sights that isn't a bug deal. The only major problem (to me) is the magazine disconnect, but it can be removed. It is a soft shooting, accurate gun. Nothing really bad to say about it.

    Not joking.

    I point more naturally, and hit better with this gun then any other handgun i have, even the full size one... Its a great little gun. Never has any trouble with hp's either. Go for it.

    Not more accurate than my cz compact, but much lighter being half poly. I just got mine and have only run 150 rounds thru it, but so far no regret. Plus its US made, except for the magazine which had made in Italy stamped on it. I do believe its a good buy.

    the gun is good, as long as you can shoot it accurate and comfortable, i carry a g19 and i can tell you, for a EDC the thinner and lighter the better.

    I have not shot the compact, but I like the full-size 9mm a LOT.

    I've had 3 SR9c's since they came out, currently I have one as my EDC.
    I've never had issue with any one of them and I feel the SR9c is the perfect balance of size and firepower. Plus, they just shoot so damn good for me :)

    Another big fan of the SR9c. Looked at all the compacts, like the Glock 19, S&W M&P9c, and the XD9 Sub-Compact. For best overall feel, ergonomics, design features, and sight aquisition, the SR9c was the top choice for me.

    I too feel like the SR9c is the perfect balance of size and weight. Decent trigger also.

    Probably made by MecGar...who makes magazines for a bunch of companies, like SIG and Beretta

    I just got one and have only gone to the range once so I'm reserving final judgement but my initial reaction is that it is a quality shooter. Went to the range with it, an M&P 9c, Caracal C and a 6906. I liked the trigger better than the two S&Ws. It shot as well as the others at 7 and 10 yards. I also liked the extended mag with grip adapter just as much as the M&P9c.

    SR9 magazines are indeed made by Mec-Gar. They are high-quality, just like everything else about this pistol.

    My wife loves hers. It is a great little gun: flawless functioning through about 500 rounds, very accurate and it has a nice trigger.

    Owned it...loved it.

    The SR9c was just the right size for my hand, and was a pleasure to shoot. It comes (or at least used to come) with the full size magazine (17 shots if I recall), a regular flush-fitting magazine for CC, and even a pinky extension for the flush magazine. It was actually the 1st handgun I ever bought. Very handy, dead reliable, good trigger (better than a Glock trigger...if you don't mind me saying so), and PERFECT for anything from a home defense gun (with the larger mag.) to a CC sidearm (with the smaller mag).

    Happy Hunting!

    We don't mind. It is better than a Glock trigger.

    Most polymer guns these days have a better trigger than a Glock (with the notable exception of the S&W Sigma/SD).

    Add another positive vote, it's a great gun. Surprisingly good. I bought it because I was at the LGS window shopping and it was there and priced low enough for an impulse buy. I took it home not expecting the world, but came back from the first range visit with a smile.

    It shoots absolutely great. Lined up perfectly right out of the box. Easy to be accurate.
    Surprisingly good stock trigger from the first round, and gets smoother with a little range time. Or Dremel time, if you wanted to polish it up quickly I suppose. Smooth pull after a fair amount of take-up, clean easy break with decently small over-travel. Fair reset distance, doesn't feel excessively long at all.
    Reliable - I've not had a single failure in 450 rounds, eats everything I've put in it.
    Rated for any SAAMI spec ammo, including +P
    Sized right - small enough to conceal carry, big enough to fit a man size hand
    Ambi controls for you south paws ;) With the exception of the slide lock being on the left side only
    Ejector and extractor are pretty stout, feel like they'll last and operate correctly for a long time

    Positive wife factor as well. She likes all the safety gizmos (chamber indicator, frame mounted thumb safety, mag safety, trigger safety) but the gun is built to not get them in your way. Mag disconnect takes 30 seconds to remove if that's your thing, thumb safety is small and works well, trigger safety is ... well a trigger safety. Chamber indicator doesn't intrude into your line of sight or catch on anything.

    Only slight downside is the slide lock is indeed a lock and not a release, but if you're so inclined you can make it work like one. Or you can be kinder to your gun and drop the slide by hand.

    It's my favorite 9mm (have several) I don't see where you could go wrong for an all around gun.

    Great gun. Too big for me to carry comfortably but great for the price.

    Now the big question.....:evil: Black or Stainless?

    My most recent "c" was stainless.....but I always like the black a little more. A few weeks ago I spotted a used but unfired black "c" in the case of my LGS. After a few days of debate with myself, I picked it up, that night I promptly sold my stainless "c" to a good friend and now we are both happy as clams.... ;)

    I had shoulder surgery last December and could only shoot with my weak hand for over three months. The SR9C made my weak hand shooting look really good. Plus I really like the ambi thumb safety.

    I liked my first SR9C so well I bought another SR9C and a SR40C.

    I have a LOT of guns and the SR9C is up there with the best of them.........after I removed the magazine disconnect that is.:)

    Carry mine constantly, more natural in my hand than anything I've ever shot. 1,530 rounds through mine, only issues were with hard, mil-spec ammo primers.
