    I've seen mostly good reviews, but I've seen just a few bad latey, too. About ready to get one because I like the size and my P95 is very reliable and Ruger quality seems generally good. Please feel free to offer any input, and THANKS!

    I shot one back to back with a smith M&Pc. The ruger was just as accurate. Functioned flawlessly. Good ergonomics and sight pick up. Solid feeling pistol all around. I love the mag options too with the extended mag/grip extension built into one.

    The trigger is the only weak point. It's no necessarily bad. Just odd. It will take a few rounds to get used to. For the money it is a steal of a gun.

    Got my sr9c because of how much I like my P95. I had a few issues at first that I now believe were mostly my fault. Have put >300 rounds through it and think it's great.

    No issues with mine.

    I've had one for about two weeks now and have about 300 rounds through it. I am loving it so far. It fits my hand well and carries easily in an IWB or in large front pockets. It is fun to shoot and I am accurate with it. The drawback is that magazines are about $40 each.

    My brother has a full-size SR9, and it has been 100% reliable for him. From what I understand, the SR9c is supposed to be even better.

    Love mine. I shoot it pretty well.

    Wish mags were a bit cheaper.

    Love mine. Most accurate compact I've shot yet.

    It did have to go back because the trigger would, occasionally, not reset. Since it has come back from Ruger it has been flawless and the trigger on mine, now, is awesome. (for a striker fired pistol)

    Friend brought one in for me to look at. Liked the way it felt and pointed. Takedown was a little different but still pretty straight forward. Only pet peeve is the 17 round magazine grip adapter annoys the heck outta me.

    I've been by mine. It's showing exceptional accuracy, and I've had no reliability problems thus far. It's a very good pistol, and even better at the price.

    I bought mine back in April. I haven't kept track of how many rounds a number of people have shot but it must be over a thousand trouble, without a problem.

    Everyone likes the gun including several lady shooters.


    I don't like magazine disconnects but this one is very easy to remove. It's in the slide.

    Just had mine out yesterday. Still love the way it feels in my hand, with its great ergonomic design, decent trigger, and easy to pick up sights. I also like the little details that they engineered into the gun like the reversible backstrap and the two different mag plates. All in all, I'm very happy with my SR9c.

    For those that have some rounds through the pipe. Does the trigger improve at all?

    Yes, it does improve with use and removing the magazine safety helps as well.

    off-line mostly.
    I love mine!
    Not a single failure so far.
    The trigger is simply outstanding!

    Pretty gun, easyg. I ordered mine in all black though, because I already have a couple of two-tone stainless semi-auto nines.

    The dealer said that the finish I ordered was called "blued stainless" or "black stainless" or something. Does anyone know if this means the black finish will be as durable (in other words, less likely to show holster wear) as the regular stainless finish? Just curious. Doesn't really matter. I should have the gun in the next day or two.

    The trigger on my SR9c still feels about the same, but then again I feel it was good to go right out of the box.

    Have had my SR9c since around June. I would guess that I have around 800 rds through it now. It has been flawless and accurate.
