    I just ordered the SR9C from a local gun store for a out the door price of $470 and was told that as soon as they receive the SR9C within a few days it is sold due to the high demand of this handgun! They had the one with the brushed stainless and I wanted the black, so they put in call to there supplier and put one on backorder for me! Just wanted to know if anyone has heard this before and if the price I paid is reasonable? The other stores in the area who have the reputation of cheap prices were selling it at the MSRP of $525 and was just wondering if this gun is in such demand why did I get lower than the other (so called) cheap selling stores? Lay it on me, and let me know what ya'll think!!

    I have both and the Sr9c is right up there with the Glock. Shoots good, looks / feel better and so far, just as dependable. I got mine at Bass Pro. They had several in stock.

    Is the trigger any better on the SR9-C than it is on the full size?

    I sure hope so !

    Never fired the SR9 but have handled a few. Based on fit/finish/trigger/etc... I'd say they are on par with Glock, M&P, XD, FN, and the other similar pistols out there.

    They are listed for 389.95 here http://www.hoffgun.com/specials.htm
    I saw them at buds for under 400 dollars shipped last week but I looked after seeing this thread last night & they are out of stock now. Every one I have seen in a shop around here is around 450. I don't know why I'm even keeping up with prices I'm not in a position to buy anything right now.

    If you like the Sr9c buy it. It's every bit as good as the Glock and it's made in the US.

    I ordered it in Black and I'm just waiting for it to arrive! I looked locally at Shoot straight and I was told they was the cheapest place to go! They wanted the MSRP of $525. I see some members on this thread are recommending the Glock instead of the Ruger SR9C. I saw that some said they shot both and said they are the same and some said they are not! Is this due to personal preference or facts! I read in Aprils (I think) Guns and Ammo were the SR9C was featured and had a full test done on it and it passed with flying colors including the 4 degree weather test and the results from 15000 rounds being shot through the SR9C and only one malfunction that was based on the heavy leather gloves one of the volunteers wore to help with the heat from all the shooting they did with it! It impressed me, how does the Glock stand up to these kinds on tests? Also the article stated that you can shot the +P and +P+ loads in this gun with no problems.

    If you go to www.rugerforum.com & use the search function you will find a lot of threads about this gun.

    Now you've gone and roused the glockaholics. :banghead:

    SR9c's are fine weapons. So are Glocks. Get what fits and works best for you.

    glock's put out crappers, just like any other manufacturer, but there's no denying their quality.

    No problems getting SR9's or SR9c's in my area. The SR9c usually is around $400 or a little more. The trigger in the SR9c has been inproved, but only slightly.
    The improvement still wasn't enough to motivate me to get one.

    Now to all the glockaholics out there, No disrespect meant! I am sure the Glock is a fine weapon, I just have not heard any facts to back it up! This is my first semi auto, I usually stick with Old West style revolvers. I decided to invest in something that my wife could handle in a pinch and not having to pay $35 for 50 rounds of .45 colt! For the cost and reviews, I found on the SR9C to be a good choice! Was the 4 degree test done on the Glock and also the 15,000 rounds test done as per Guns and Ammo (April issue) and if so, what were the results? I am sure it was close I just want to know (if any) were there any malfunctions? :evil:

    Yes, the SR9c are difficult to find. I was lucky to find a near brand new SR9c in black last week. I traded it in my Taurus PT145 for it. I haven't been happier.

    I had to order mine and now just waiting for the call to pick it up! Black was the one I wanted but as i said earlier all they had was the polished stainless. Tired of just taking what they have and plan to wait for this one! Playing with the idea of light or laser sight for the front rail. Not sure what I want yet. BP I am jealous, but not for long!!!! :)

    Maybe Ruger's getting proactive and recalling them before actually shipping them. :neener: just kidding (sorta).

    I'd wager it's not really a demand issue, but more of a supply issue.

    Hey, button...here you go...
    www.theprepared.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=90
    Try these tests with the other major players (pick one) out there...he did :eek:

    This is just one example (gun), by one individual. There have been many, many tests done. Not a tougher gun out there, or more dependable, IMO. They're not for everyone, but apparently a few people like them, to include many police dept.'s, some federal agencies, and one or two civilians... lol :) I don't keep up with all that anymore, as I am well pleased with mine... every one that I've ever bought...Not sure that any other handgun has been so abused in it's testing... You have to be happy with what you shoot and you seem pretty excited about the SR9C. Hope it works out for you. Good luck, ;)

    Tacbandit, Thanks that is what I was looking for! I am pretty excited about the SR9c but that does not mean it's the best one out there! Glad to get some more info on other guns. Just incase I need to purchase one for myself! :) (Plan on it, why let the wife have all the fun!:p)

    There's a 17 kicking around somewhere with about a quarter million trouble-free rounds through it, though it has had regular maintenance like springs replaced at whatever rate is necessary, I think it might be Chuck Hawks or someone with a similiar name who is running it.

    atblis, you could be correct! I heard and seen companies hold back inventory in order to create a shortage so they can get high dollar for something!
